Drs. Derek and Andrea Barrett

Meet Drs. Derek and Andrea Barrett

Dr. Derek Barrett, D.C. received his Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology with an emphasis in Exercise Physiology from Kansas State University. His passion for understanding the human body combined with his love and calling to help people, propelled him to further his education post undergraduate school. Upon witnessing, learning and experiencing several accounts of true healing, he began to understand that the body could in fact heal itself from above down and inside out. This lead him to pursue a career in the chiropractic profession. He received his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Cleveland University Kansas City where he graduated with Cum Laude honors and met his wife Dr. Andrea Odbert. Dr. Derek has post-graduate training in several areas of alternative care, including specialty training in Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care.

Dr. Andrea Barrett, D.C. earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Physiology from the University of Sioux Falls where she attained a full ride scholarship for volleyball. She continued her education at Cleveland University Kansas City where she graduated with a Doctorate of Chiropractic degree and fell in love with the principle of chiropractic. Dr. Andrea has always had a fire and dedication for hard work, not only in the sports arena and health field, but in all aspects of life. She has a special place in her heart for working with people of all ages and backgrounds and loves giving them their best chance at a healthy life. She also has post-graduate specialty training in Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care. Both Drs. Derek and Andrea Barrett are passionate about offering hope to those who have tried everything with little to no success.

It is our goal to play an integral role in the health of our community and to create a friendly and professional atmosphere that you can rely on!

SoftWave FAQs

  • What results should I expect from SoftWave Therapy?

    If you are a candidate for treatment, SoftWave therapy can provide both immediate and long-lasting results. After one SoftWave session, patients typically experience a 20-50% reduction in pain and improvement in mobility, lasting from a few hours to several days. Some patients require multiple sessions before experiencing improvement.

    To determine if SoftWave is a suitable treatment for you, schedule a $69 New Patient Appointment, where you will receive one SoftWave treatment session, and the provider will assess whether further treatment is appropriate.

    Unlike pain medications and injections, SoftWave treatment seeks to activate the body’s natural healing process at the cellular level to deliver genuine and long-lasting results.

  • What is the SoftWave treatment process like?

    SoftWave is a fast and convenient non-invasive procedure that usually lasts 10-15 minutes, with no downtime required for recovery. First, ultrasound gel is applied, then the SoftWave device is gently placed to deliver shock waves to the injured area. Most patients feel a gentle tapping or pulsing sensation, while some patients may experience mild pain or discomfort. The use of anesthesia or numbing agents is not necessary. Effective communication with the provider during treatment can help identify treatment hotspots and track progress.
