Meet Dr. Brooke Bargamian- Courtright
Dr. Brooke is an alumna of Southern California University of Health Science (SCUHS)- Los Angeles Chiropractic College (LACC). Though she sees all ages and conditions, she specializes in pediatric and pregnancy adjusting, including pregnant mothers, women considering becoming pregnant, and neonates to adolescents. She also has a focus in athletics having worked with cyclists, weightlifters, baseball & softball players and many other athletes in the Fresno and Los Angeles areas.
Dr. Brooke sees an array of patients varying in ages and conditions. She was the head chair person of the Childbirth Resource Network in Fresno and was a member of the Visalia Birth Network. She is currently a member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA)(www.icpa4kids.org). She participates in many events around the Fresno area to better people’s understanding of holistic care, and works hand in hand with many parenting groups of Fresno such as Attachment Parenting, as well as local pediatricians, doulas, midwives, Bradley instructors, lactation consultants, OBGYNs, athletic clubs/ organizations and other medical practitioners. Dr. Brooke uses safe and effective treatments to help patients out of pain which includes, but is not limited to, women while pregnant as well as assisting infants out of colic, torticollis, latching and digestive issues/distress to name a few. For parents that wish to see their children potentially get off of medication, sleep longer, be more content and energetic, chiropractic may be the answer. She also aids in the alleviation of athletes and everyday working persons with pain, posture, digestive and food allergy issues.
Dr. Brooke’s passion for Chiropractic and Health Sciences started while competing in softball at Clovis West High School & with other traveling teams. During this time she suffered a nearly paralyzing injury, and through chiropractic healing practices was able to make a full recovery and return to the softball field. After graduating from Clovis West Dr. Brooke continued her relationship with the school while coaching the JV Softball team until she relocated to Southern California to receive her BS in Kinesiology from Long Beach State University.
During her time spent receiving her Doctorate of Chiropractic at LACC, Brooke was deeply involved with events such as the Wildflower Triathlon, where she worked as a student intern doctor treating tri-athletes; as well as the AIDS Life Cycle, a 10 day bike tour from San Francisco to Los Angeles treating cyclists who ride in support of the elimination of AIDS and HIV. In 2011 and 2012 Brooke attended the National Chiropractic Legislative Conference in Washington D.C. where she spoke with legislators about the current health initiative and the benefits of chiropractic. Dr. Brooke has also served on numerous board committees at LACC including the Pediatric Club, Sports Injury Council, Healing Hands for Humanity (H3) and the Educational Advancement Committee. While in school she also became certified in Rock Tape FMT1, K Tape, Activator and Graston Module 1 and CPR/ First Aid.
