Founded in 2008, Core Health emerged as the first subluxation-based, family friendly, children centered, open office concept of its kind in the Fargo/Moorhead community. The roots of Core Health originate from the health challenges that Dr. Barton experienced as a child. Throughout childhood and well into his teenage years Dr. Barton had dealt with many "common" childhood health issues such as chronic bronchitis, acne, asthma, and headaches. After years of medication the issues only grew worse, and it was time for a change. After a severe concussion at the age of 12, Dr Barton began seeing a chiropractor. Following a few months of consistent, subluxation-based chiropractic care, Dr. Barton (age 12) had not only recovered from the concussion symptoms, but also began to experience a life without the "common" childhood health issues. The yearning to understand how just a few months of chiropractic had accomplished what medical doctors and pharmacists were unable to over years, was the determining factor in Dr. Barton’s quest to achieve a degree as a Doctorate of Chiropractic.
"What we have come to accept as "common health issues" is not normal human health. My life was forever transformed by a Doctor of Chiropractic who lived on principle. Seeing clarity through contrast, I believe one of the greatest civil duties is to provide children with the best future possible. I can think of no greater purpose in life than to maintain a Pay-It-Forward attitude, thus chiropractic care for the newborn, toddler and teenager has been my life focus." --Dr. Barton
In 2011, Dr. Barton was paralyzed from the waist down, while being paralyzed was fortunately not permanent, Dr. Barton had ongoing health issues because of this incident. The damage of the incident had taken its toll and by 2020 Dr. Barton was concerned if he would be able to continue his career. In late 2020, Dr. Barton was introduced to the shockwave technology. Core Health invested into this technology in hopes that it would save Dr. Barton’s career. The shockwave technology has not only saved Dr. Barton’s career, but he can once again be active with his children, live without daily pain, and no longer has no numbness/tingling.
With yet another personal testimony Core Health now utilizes the shockwave technology to enhance the healing experience for others. Dr. Barton is an author, coach, entrepreneur, and speaker but his greatest accomplishment is being a husband and father.
