Dr. Mandy Barnings

Dr. Mandy Barnings is passionate about wellness and quality of life for her patients. Her journey to becoming a chiropractor began with a car accident. As a Red Raider at Texas Tech, Dr. Barnings was studying to be an engineer. After a high-speed car accident left her with neck pain and unrelenting headaches, it was a good chiropractor who was finally able to give her some relief and help her begin to heal. After her personal experience, she became an enthusiastic advocate of this non-invasive, all-natural healthcare field, and she changed her path. She got her Doctorate of Chiropractic from Parker University, and began practicing in Arlington, Texas. She did additional post-graduate work in advanced extremity adjusting. A fateful visit to the Bitterroot Valley of Montana and the desire to live in a smaller community led her to make the move and become a Montana resident in 1999.

Dr. Barnings is an examining doctor for the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners (NBCE) and has been voted “Bitterroot’s Best Chiropractor” by valley residents more than eight times.

In her free time, Dr. Barnings is an enthusiastic patron of the arts serving on the Board of the Bitterroot Performing Arts Council, supporter of organizations supporting youth in need, current swimmer and state record-holder for the US Masters, and wrangler of her Giant Schnoodle dog.

Dr. Janice Jones

Dr. Janice Jones grew up in Miami, Florida and holds a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Colorado, Boulder. In January 1999, she received her Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Parker College of Chiropractic in Dallas,Texas. Most of her 21 years in practice were spent in Phoenix, AZ and she is grateful to now be in the great four season state of Montana!

With a unique perspective on healing born of a wide range of mainstream as well as unconventional knowledge and techniques, Dr. Jones brings something special to chiropractic. Treating her patients – both adults and children – with respect and loving attention, she listens not only with her ears but with her heart.

Dr. Jones feels she was divinely guided to become a chiropractor and, as such, holds herself to an exceptional standard of care for her patients.

Dr. Jones is the proud mother of a son about whom she loves to brag. He and his lovely wife made her a happy grandmother in 2019 with the birth of their firstborn – a beautiful boy. When she is not adjusting patients, Janice is likely walking her Standard Poodle or spending time in the great outdoors, trying to talk birds out of trees.
