Dr. Jason Barnes
Dr. Barnes has been a member of the Colorado Chiropractic Association since 2002 when he started his practice in Colorado. In 2016 Dr. Barnes was elected for an interim position for a vacant District 5 position. He ran again a year later for the same position because he believes that contributing through a board position can better the profession in the state of Colorado.
Dr. Barnes has been improving the health of the public through chiropractic care for 18 years. His passion is to give his patients the best way to improve their health without prescription medications or surgery. He treats practice members of all ages, from newborn infants to great-grandparents. Dr. Barnes holds a certified chiropractic sports physician certificate to enhance his education of treating the specialized population of athletes which can also be rolled over to the general population as well.
Dr. Barnes received his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Northwestern College of Chiropractic in Bloomington, MN (now Northwestern Health Sciences University) in 2001. Prior to chiropractic school he studied at Western Wyoming Community College and received an AAS degree and a Radiologic Technology degree. He then continued his education at the University of Wyoming in order to receive his bachelor’s degree in Zoology prior to moving on to chiropractic school.
Dr. Barnes moved back to Burlington, CO with his wife Amy in 2002 and they have practiced there ever since. Besides his practice in Burlington, CO he also has a satellite clinic in Cheyenne Wells, CO and Goodland KS.
Being involved on the board these past few years Dr. Barnes believes that he has done what is necessary to provide the best for the chiropractic profession in Colorado and therefore support those who provide the care to the public. It is a challenge to represent all of chiropractic in Colorado but Dr. Barnes has learned that it is the utmost importance for all those who work with the CCA to do just that. We put our differences aside and come to a united front for chiropractic.

Dr. Russ Birdsall
In 2007, Dr. Russ attended Cleveland Chiropractic College in Kansas City, graduating in 2014 with a Bachelors’s degree in Science and a Doctorate of Chiropractic. While in school, he studied extensively on how to treat and manage many conditions of the spine from low back and sciatica to headaches and neck pain. Unfortunately, there wasn’t much training in school on how to treat and manage conditions outside of the spine. Growing up Dr. Russ played soccer, ultimate Frisbee, golf, and many other sports so his goal in school was to work with professional athletes and teams.
Things changed for Dr. Russ when he had a patient in school that couldn’t knit a sweater for her grandchild because of her severe carpal tunnel. This motivated Dr. Russ to enrolled in extra courses & seminars to become proficient in the treatment and management of injuries and conditions of the hands, feet, shoulders, and other areas outside the spine. From that point, he knew that he would become a Chiropractor in Northglenn to help others. Since then he has seen amazing results treating carpal tunnel, plantar fasciitis, elbow pain, and other conditions without the use of surgery, braces, or medication by adjusting the spine, hands, and feet.
