  • Dr.
    Bethanne Baretich

    Dr. Bethanne Baretich is passionate about providing individualized, evidenced-based, conservative health care. As a Certified Chiropractic Sports Physican, she employs a combination of diversified chiropractic techniques, extremity adjustments, and applied kinesiology procedures to provide the best care possible so her patients can get healthy and feel better faster. She is also proficient in myofascial release, Graston therapy, kinesiology taping, exercise instruction, nutrition consultations, and functional neurology. 

    Dr. Baretich is currently working towards becoming a board-certified chiropractic functional neurologist. She believes furthering her education will allow her to become an expert in her field for treating conditions such as chronic pain, stroke, vertigo, childhood developmental issues, headaches, sciatica, postural issues, and many more.

    Dr. Bethanne Baretich is also an IVCA (International Veterinary Chiropractic Association) certified animal chiropractor.  This allows her to provide bodywork to animals - especially dogs and horses - in order to relieve discomfort, ensure optimum performance, and improve overall well-being. Dr. Baretich can communicate and work closely with your veterinarian to formulate the best treatment plan for your animal. Treatment will not be given without the animal first having an established veterinary relationship. A referral to a veterinarian will be made if necessary. 

    While studying at Palmer College of Chiropractic, Dr. Baretich enjoyed being part of the medical team at events such as marathons, dance competitions, cycling and mountain biking events, and the Susan G. Komen 3-Day Breast Cancer Walk.  She plans to remain involved in sporting events throughout her career as she enjoys working with athletes from all backgrounds.
