Dr.John BarberOwner First Choice Chiropractic Health and Wellness
Dr. Barber proudly calls East Tennessee home. Dr. Barber and his team of skilled professionals work hard daily to serve the great citizens of Knoxville and all of the surrounding communities. Whether patients are having problems with back pain or neck pain, or just want to start feeling better when they wake up in the morning Dr. Barber and his team are there to help.
A 'Whole Person' approach with integrated care is the method that Dr. Barber applies to his practice and his patients. 'Whole Person' is the process of looking for any underlying causes for disease, discomfort, and pain, as opposed to just treating the symptoms. Many seemingly unrelated symptoms often arise from imbalances in the spinal column, and Dr. Barber and Gayanne Ballinger, FNP will seek to determine the root of the pain and create a personalized integrated treatment and wellness plan to suit each patient's individual needs.
