About Dr. Alisha Barnes
Dr. Alisha Barnes received her bachelors degree in zoology at Colorado State University and her Chiropractic Doctorate degree from the University of Western States in Portland, Oregon. She then attended the rigorous and well known animal chiropractic program at Parker University in Dallas, Texas. The curriculum centered around identification of common veterinary conditions, canine and equine anatomy, and chiropractic condition identification and proper treatment. Dr. Alisha is certified by the American Veterinary Chiropractic Association (AVCA). The AVCA is the premier national accredited animal chiropractic association, where members are held to the highest standards in knowledge and care.
“One of the main reasons I became an animal chiropractor was my adopted mixed breed dog, Luna. She had been suffering with deteriorating hips and back stiffness as she was getting older. Watching my little girl limp around in pain was heartbreaking for me. I wanted so badly to make her feel better and have her be her happy, silly self again. Chiropractic care was the answer! Through adjusting and massage, Luna is back to acting like a puppy (something I never thought would happen). She comes to me whenever she is pain knowing that ‘mommy’ can fix it, it is the best feeling in the world.”
“I have always had a great love and respect for animals. It was my furry friends that taught me about kindness, compassion, acceptance and friendship. Consequently, I am happy to devote myself to returning the favor. I feel so honored and grateful to take the knowledge and tools that I have been given to help animals live happier, healthier and pain-free lives. I get to meld my two loves together: animals and chiropractic care.”
“Knowing that I can make their lives a little easier, a little better and a little less painful is such a blessing and I am so lucky.”
