When I first came to Dr. Barnum, I couldn’t stand up straight and had severe back pain. Dr. Barnum thoroughly reviewed my medical history, was respectful about my concerns, and explained everything completely. She had me walking and standing tall in just a few weeks. I now go to Dr. Barnum about once a month to keep me pain free. (P.S. I drive 16 miles to see her. I have tried several closer offices, but Dr. Barnum is the only chiropractor I trust to manipulate my spine.)
