I am Dr. James “Bart” Barthelme. Born and raised in Palm Springs I have long held a passion for helping people. When I was 14 my father, Michael, worked construction labor and suffered from a debilitating disc herniation. I saw first hand the pernicious effect injuries have on people and those around them. My father sought and found relief from Chiropractic care. From that day forward I knew that I would become a Chiropractor.
My lifelong pursuit of healing has garnered two professional degrees. Before embarking on my Chiropractic career I studied and worked as a massage therapist. This experience has helped me gain valuable insight into the fascinating interplay between muscular and joint function. Wrestling has been my competitive outlet from middle school through college, and even today. Here I learned the importance of dedication to my craft so that I can maximize relief and healing to longtime pain sufferers like my father.
