Neck pain affects 30-50% of people every year and 50-85% of these people do not have complete resolution of their pain. (1) That is close to 100 million Americans suffering from neck pain every year. Shoulder pain is also common and can affect 14.7 of every 1000 patients per year. (2)

I am a Family Nurse Practitioner, certified in Colorado and Pennsylvania where I now live. I went to Dr. Ann for neck and shoulder ‘issues’ after doing many holistic and standard medical therapies. I did not take pain relievers stronger than Tylenol, but the stress and tightness in my neck had me worried. After 2 treatments I found that Dr. Ann could provide amazing relief of my discomfort and my sleep pattern improved for many months. When I visit my daughter in Colorado, I try to get an appointment with Dr. Ann! She really is aware of not juts the skeletal, but of the whole picture of what impacts bodily function and wellness.

Dr. Barter is awesome! She is like a chiropractor, naturopath, and rolfer. She is amazing. One stop shopping for all of your discomfort and pain. My neck felt looser than it has ever and I have been doing regular chiropractic care my entire life.
