Meet our Provider of the Month, Troy Barnes, DC! This month we caught up with him to learn more about his practice. Call us at (800) 404-6050 to schedule your appointment today.
Where is your practice?
I was our first provider here in Aggieland! (Texas).
Where are you originally from?
How long have you been with Airrosti?
Describe your favorite thing about your job.
Hearing people talk about what they’re passionate about and then helping them get back to it pain-free!
Best food recommendation near your practice’s location.
Too many great options to list, and too many food moods for me to pick just one.
What did you want to be when you grew up?
Either a pro athlete or something in sports…but pro athlete went up in flames when I got to college and realized I couldn’t hit college pitching.
What’s one cause you are passionate about?
Foster kids. My wife and I fostered kids and support a local foster pantry ourselves and via our Church. Those kids are so, so, so in need of people to fight for them and their well-being.
Name three things you love to do in your spare time.
Watch my kids play sports, watch Aggie sports, and sit by my smoker on a relaxing weekend day.
What’s the oddest injury you’ve had and how did it happen?
Tore my Achilles playing basketball with other Airrosti friends back in DFW. It was a great opportunity for them to see and examine a fresh Achilles rupture…not so great for me.
If you could be in any movie, what would it be and why?
Sandlot because that was a great time in American history, Benny the Jet was a legend…and I know I could hit DeNunez’s heater!
What’s a hidden skill or a fact that no one would guess about you?
I am the 2021 Caldwell Kolache Festival Kolache Eating Contest Champion…and combined with the fact that I’m known as “The Cheese Stick Guy” by my nearby pizza joint, I guess that means I’m a good eater?
What’s your favorite sport?
If you could make a difference in the world, what would you be known for?
Helping give kids the chance they deserve…whether it be helping them heal from an injury and get back to their sport, study/read/learn with less pain, or have a safe place to sleep.
If you could have any superpower, which would you choose and why?
Flying because I wouldn’t have to be squished and locked onto an airplane for vacations.
What is your most treasured possession?
No possession I’ve got is more treasured by me than my family. But I’ve also got a hand-written rough draft birthday poem from my Grandfather. He never gave it to me, but it was found and given to me after he passed.
Do you volunteer with any local community organizations or efforts? If so, which ones and why?
Our whole family volunteers at our church most Sundays, and I help coach my kids’ sports teams. I’m also the Team Chiropractor and Airrosti Provider for Texas A&M Athletics.
Finally, name one thing you couldn’t live without.
Pizza nights with my family.
