Dr. Jason Barker, D.C.
Founder & Head Doctor
Dr. Jason Barker grew up in Roxboro, NC. He was an offensive lineman in high school, where he graduated a student-athlete scholar. Once a 270-pound offensive lineman, he sustained a neck injury during a 2004 collegiate football game that left him temporarily paralyzed. Movement in his spine was restored through chiropractic care, which inspired him to earn his Bachelor of Science in Sport Science from Chowan College, followed by a Doctorate of Chiropractic from Life University. Dr. Barker has advanced training in spinal correction, toxicity, exercise and nutrition from some of the largest health clinics in the country including time spent at the Maximized Living Training Center in Naples, FL. He and his wife, Julie, now live in Winston-Salem, North Carolina as founders of Stagecoach Family Chiropractic, A Maximized Living Health Center.
Aspiring to pioneer optimal health in the village of Clemmons and beyond, Dr. Barker is committed to teaching how to achieve true healing through lifestyle choices and the maintenance of a healthy nervous system. Having once been pre-diabetic, overweight, asthmatic, and on high blood pressure medications, his own life was transformed by the 5 Essentials of health that he teaches his patients. Dr. Barker spends countless hours training, studying, and learning the most advanced chiropractic techniques and wellness information to ensure his patients receive the best care possible. He is an active member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA), is Webster Technique Certified (for pregnant moms), is WBFJ’s featured HealthExpert on 1550AM. His mission is to help people be free of unnecessary suffering and it propels his passion to serve his community by leading wellness workshops for local businesses, churches, schools, and organizations.
Maximized Living is well-known for being the official chiropractic and performance team doctors for USA Olympic teams, enabling their athletes to achieve optimal performance. Dr. Barker was invited to Rio 2016 to care for USA Wrestling, Weightlifting, and Judo athletes. There, he helped the teams bring home several medals including gold for Olympian, Kyle Snyder. The 5 essentials these athletes use to win medals at the Olympics are the same principles for optimal health and performance that Dr. Barker teaches his patients right here in Clemmons!
