Dr. Barrett Parker
Your Syracuse Chiropractor
Thank you Allied Spine & Sports Chiropractic! I first injured my back (displaced disc) in the spring of 2014 and was treated by another chiropractor and was able to resume my normal active lifestyle. Starting in January of 2015 my employer offered a new program that offered reduced out of pocket costs if you were treated by a spine pathway-trained practitioner. At the time I knew that I should be getting more maintenance performed on my back after my injury but I was not. Needless to say I re-injured my back in 2015. After researching the providers that were available as spine pathway-trained practitioner I decided to go to Allied Spine & Sports Chiropractic. They were great, from Dr. Parker and Dr. Daughton to Brenda at the front desk. The doctors took the time to educate me on my back injury and more importantly the steps needed to heal and maintain my back-to the point where I can continue my active lifestyle. They gave me a personalized set of back strengthening and stretching exercises to keep my back in the best shape possible. From their care and by regularly continuing to perform these exercises, I am back to my pre-injury active lifestyle. I run 3 miles at least every couple of days, regularly do T25 (which is a high intensity work out), play basketball regularly, fish and golf. I have Allied Spine & Sports Chiropractic and the spine pathway program to thank for allowing me to continue the lifestyle I enjoy.
Sincerely, John R.
"I suffer with degenerative disk in both my low back and neck and I have had tried many types of therapies including physical therapy, medications and injections. I've also had 3 surgeries on my lumbar spine and seen many other chiropractors in the 20 year history of my condition. Dr. Parker is by far the best chiropractor I have ever received treatment from. He is an expert in anatomy and has many tools and techniques at his disposal for treating acute and chronic pain. In addition to the normal manipulation that you would expect from a chiropractor, he performs soft tissue treatments to break up scar tissue and restore movement. Dr. Parker is a great problem solver and uses lots of different techniques to tailor a treatment plan to my particular condition. I feel like he knows my anatomy and medical challenges better than I do! He has a tremendous "bed side" matter, is friendly and you feel like he genuinely cares. Dr. Parker is dedicated to his profession and is always attending continuing education seminars to further enhance his skills and learn new techniques. He also partners well with other medical professionals to coordinate a treatment plan. For example, he regularly keeps my pain management doctor informed on his observations and recommends specific areas of treatment.
I've been a patient of Allied Spine and Sports Chiropracticfor about 2 years and he has been key in restoring function and partnering with me on how to best manage my chronic condition. I feel that he has significantly improved my quality of life and I am forever grateful for his help and professionalism."

"My experience with Allied Spine and Sports Chiropractic can be described in one simple phrase, "life changing". The traditional medical community could only offer me brain numbing medication for my neck injury which caused vertigo and dizzy spells. Dr. Parker's treatment and exercise program has brought me back to near normal. The vertigo is gone and the dizzy spells are short and manageable.I had never been treated by a chiropractor before Dr. Parker. I was a little skeptical when my physical therapist recommended him. But now I can honestly say he was a great choice for treatment. He has definitely changed my perception of chiropractics. I would recommend Allied Spine and Sports Chiropractic."

" I have been seeing Dr.Parker since November of 2010. I had severe neck and shoulder injuries which caused difficulties with my job driving school bus. Since seeing Dr. Parker I have been able to drive my bus and do other activities which were of great discomfort to me before. I truly believe that he has helped my situation and I can enjoy my life again pain free. He explains everything to you and he gives you exercises and tips to help you better your life. I can't say enough about Dr. Parker and my experience with him."

"For decades I have endured back, neck and hip pain. Over these many years I have been to see numerous chiropractors, and other specialists, in search of pain relief and increased mobility. Dr. Parker has been extremely helpful in this pursuit. He provides gentle manipulation and works with me to explore and find the best outcomes. Dr. Parker has been my chiropractor for several years now. He truly understands my individual issues, and continues to have my complete trust and confidence. "
"Dr. Parker helped me. He helped me start walking again so I was able to do many things that I haven't been able to do for years. Dr. Parker listened to me to help me figure out what was going on. I did my part I was careful and did his exercises. His treatments were always on time. My opinion about chiropractors has changed after seeing Dr. Parker. I went to other doctors and physical therapists for over a year without any help. I would recommend Dr. Parker to other people. Dr. Parker saved me and I can't thank him enough. It is great not to have pain."

"I have been seeing Dr. Parker for several years. Four years ago I moved to Baltimore for college. Since then I've been to another chiropractor and was unsatisfied. Now, every time I come home I see Dr. Parker. He is able to do more healing in 2 visits than the other could do with 15! I would strongly recommend Dr. Parker."

"Dr. Parker was introduced to me by my friend when I came with her to an appointment. In the waiting room he noticed my hand was twitching. He examined me and told me about my condition. He managed my pain and got me better. I was back to my activities and feeling better than before I met him. Thanks Dr. Parker! I have told many friends about him and they have been happy as well."

I have been a patient at Allied Spine and Sports Chiropractic for 10 months now. I was in extreme pain and discomfort from low back pain and had constant sciatica pain thru my right leg into my foot. I had been diagnosed with a herniated disc that I was told would need surgery to alleviate the pain and discomfort. I was referred to and tried physical therapy. This seemed helpful and I felt I was accomplishing a work out twice a week while performing the therapy program thru my pain, and over time I had relief. Though it seemed every few weeks I had reoccurrences of debilitating pain, and was visiting the doctor's office for pain relief/medication.
The pain I felt caused a great deal of anxiety and I felt as this seemed like a life changing event. Getting around the house, to work, my children's school functions seemed nearly impossible. I felt handicapped.
I met Barrett and was pleased with his concern for my health and wellness. After the 2 visits the first week I was able to stand and feel balanced with little pain in my right leg. The techniques used were very successful. I had 2 visits a week for the following 2 weeks, and I felt great thru the weekends for the first time in months.
Barrett provided information and educated me as to why I felt the way I did and provided simple but effective exercises to help my condition. He adjusted my back as well as stretched out the muscles and pinpointed pain relief into areas with great success. I have looked forward to every visit since. I have been a patient for 10 months and visit about every 4-5 weeks. I look forward to each visit, and what wellness information will be provided next.
I could see firsthand Dr. Parker and his team have a passion for their work. Barrett provides the integration of knowledge with Chiropractic care, physical therapy, and general Health and Wellness.
