Dr. Barnajian personally experienced the healing power of chiropractic care as a patient while he was a college student. After being rear-ended in an automobile collision, Dr. Barnajian began having back pain for the first time in his life. Knowing something was not right, he sought the care of a chiropractor. This was not the first time Dr. Barnajian had seen a doctor for his spine however. While in junior high school, he was diagnosed with scoliosis (abnormal curvature of the spine) by the school’s nurse and was referred to an orthopedic doctor for evaluation. The doctor x-rayed and examined Dr. Barnajian and confirmed the scoliosis. However, the doctor felt that no treatment was necessary and that they would just monitor the condition from time to time. Upon evaluation by this first chiropractor, it was revealed that the pain in Dr. Barnajian’s back was definitely related to his pre-existing scoliosis. He received a course of chiropractic treatment and was able to get out of pain. However, Dr. Barnajian still occasionally experiences similar back pain due to his scoliosis and requires regular chiropractic care to maintain a healthy spine. Looking back to the time of his original diagnosis during junior high school, he wishes he would have been referred to a chiropractor or had known about the benefits of chiropractic care. Scoliosis is best corrected with chiropractic care during adolescence. Therefore, Dr. Barnajian feels confident that if he had known about chiropractic during his younger years, that he would not have to deal with his chronic episodes of back pain today.
Dr. Barnajian has been in practice since 2003. He received his chiropractic education at Cleveland Chiropractic College in Los Angeles, California. After receiving his chiropractic doctorate, Dr. Barnajian honed his clinical skills while working in various successful chiropractic clinics in Southern California. Dr. Barnajian now practices in Beverly Hills, Van Nuys and Los Angeles and is committed to being one of the premier healthcare providers in these communities.
Outside of his practices, Dr. Barnajian�s interests lie in football, basketball, skiing, weight training and cooking. He is an active member in the communities and strives to educate people about the benefits of living a natural lifestyle. Dr. Barnajian believes that if he is to teach his patients about wellness, that he must set an example by living a healthy lifestyle himself.
