  • Lower Back Pain

And remember, you never need an appointment to visit, so stop in when it is convenient for you. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Meet The Doctors

Dr. Chris Barras, D.C. is a Chiropractor at Parmer

Dr. Barras (“DOC” or “Dr. B” as he has become affectionately known) is committed to helping others better manage stress and attain/maintain peak performance and to experience their optimal health potential through chiropractic care and self-care education. In addition to working with The Joint, he was in private practice with offices throughout Austin, Texas since 1996 and has spoken to local schools, businesses, and organizations on health, wellness, and safety topics.

Dr. Barras was born in Houston, Texas. He graduated from Thomas Jefferson High School in Port Arthur, Texas in 1987 as part of the National Honor Society and Who's Who Among American High School Students. Since childhood, Dr. Barras was always interested in how things work, and how things interact with their environment. As a young adult he was exposed to chiropractic care that successfully managed his ongoing back pain issues that had not resolved with traditional medical care. Intrigued with his results, Chiropractic became his passion. He completed his Doctor of Chiropractic degree in 1995 at Parker College of Chiropractic in Dallas, Texas where he was voted outstanding Intern of his graduating class. He is licensed in Texas by the Texas Board of Chiropractic Examiners and regularly attends post graduate studies to keep the information he presents his patients and the community fresh and relevant.

Dr. Barras lives locally with his wife of 30 years and their dog and cat. He has two adult children and two grandchildren. Interests outside chiropractic include cooking, renaissance faires, music and general tinkering with cars and electronics.
