Meet the team behind our practice
Originally from Sutton, Ontario, Dr. Ashley Barker completed her Honours Bachelor of Kinesiology from McMaster University graduating on the Deans list. Following her undergraduate degree, Ashley moved to Barrie, Ontario to begin working as a Registered Kinesiologist designing and implementing rehabilitation programs for people of all ages and ability levels. During this time she became inspired to study further and become a Chiropractor. She completed her doctorate in chiropractic medicine at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in 2016 on the Deans List and with Clinical Honours. During her time in Chiropractic College she completed the McMaster University Contemporary Acupuncture program and Active Release Therapy® courses allowing her to broaden her manual therapy knowledge and skills in order to provide other treatment options for her patients.
Happy to make Midhurst her new home, Ashley takes an individualized approach with each patient, treating conditions and functional issues with a combination of soft tissue therapy, joint mobilizations, joint manipulations, exercise and education as well as other therapeutic devices. She combines these methods in the best way possible to provide care for her patients to feel better and live an active, healthy lifestyle.
Becoming a new mom, Ashley realized there was a significant gap in the healthcare system when it comes to postpartum women. She noticed many of her patients continued to suffer from various conditions stemming from pregnancy and childbirth. Many of these ailments can be recognized and prevented early in the postpartum period but are often accepted as a normal part of becoming a mom. This passion led to her taking additional courses in postpartum rehabilitation and wanting to raise the standard of care for women in her community.
