Hello, I am Dr. William Barton Kennedy Jr. DC, CCSP.; however my friends and family know me as “Bart.” After I graduated from Texas Chiropractic College, I went on to specialize in Sports & Spine Injuries and became a Certified Chiropractic Sports Practitioner by the American Chiropractic Board of Sports Physicians.
Most of our patients are active and participate in events such as Iron-mans, Triathlons, marathons and/or play sports, such as baseball, football, basketball, soccer, volleyball, softball, golf, and track. Our patients range from the elementary school level all the way up to the pro and Olympic level. My ultimate goal as a Sports Doctor is to get the athlete back on the court, field, or track, pain free as quickly and efficiently as possible.

“My approach is quite simple in treating patients with injuries: fix what is biomechanically causing the problem, and once everything is in balance, the symptoms will take care of themselves.”

I prefer to use a “whole person approach” when treating my patients. By combining the very best hands-on-technique, state of the art physiotherapy procedures, and providing the newest and best natural vitamins and mineral supplements on the market today, I am able to help them to accelerate and/or maintain their journey to good health.

I am blessed with a wonderful and supportive wife, Paige. We have been married for 15 years and have 3 beautiful girls: Kaylee (14), Addisyn (9), and Brooklyn (5). They are active in dance, cheer, tumbling, sports, and anything that keeps us busy! We love traveling and doing things as a family. In the winter you can find us on the ski slopes of Angel Fire, New Mexico, and in the summer we love being on the lake or on a beach!

One of my newest challenges is learning how to fly a Cessna 172. Flying is a dream that I have always had, and it’s an amazing adventure.

My absolute most rewarding experiences have come from treating patients with sports and spine injuries and seeing how happy they are after suffering from their aches and pains for so many years.
