Dr. Alicia Barton


I grew up in St. Lawrence in Newfoundland, Canada.  I left St. Lawrence at age 19 to attend Chiropractic school in Davenport, Iowa. I graduated Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science and Doctor of Chiropractic from Palmer College of Chiropractic, Davenport, Iowa.

I married my best friend, Jim Barton, of Gulf Shores CrossFit, in April 2013.  

I am a mother, a wife, business owner, chiropractor, Young Living diamond leader and wellness lifestyle educator. I founded Gulf Coast Family Chiropractic in Feb, 2005 and since that time has helped transform thousands of peoples' lives. In August, 2016, we opened a 10,000 sq. ft. wellness center, the Full Armor Center (FAC) in Gulf Shores, Alabama. FAC is a place where people of all ages can come to experience wellness. The Full Armor Center includes a chiropractic center, massage therapy, cytokine manual therapy, prenatal education, weight loss programs, personal training, fully functional CrossFit gym, boot camp classes, essential oils, naturopathic treatments, and a smoothie/juice bar.


I am fully committed to transforming the lives of people along the Gulf Coast. When I am not working in my ministry field, I find balance at home with my husband, children and my dog. I have been serving my community for over 14 years and am committed to helping others by empowering families to make smart, educated and pro-active choices about their health and the health of their loved ones. My mission statement is "to save as many lives as possible, especially children." 


I am quite humbled and thankful to help literally hundreds of families per week.  I have been witness to thousands of miracles through Chiropractic; I like to say, ‘I move the bone and God does the healing’.” At Gulf Coast Family Chiropractic we strive to get sick people well and keep well people from getting sick by utilizing the 5 essential pillars of health.  


I offer Health Transformation Makeovers and Weight Loss Challenges to educate the masses. I also offer workshops in Nutrition, weight loss, goal setting, exercise, toxicity, pediatric health and many more.

Update: Our beloved friend and chiropractor, Dr. Alicia Farrell Barton ran in to the arms of her Savior surrounded by loved ones on Saturday, August 17, 2019 at 4:50pm. Alicia had just begun her battle with cancer when a series of severe seizures caused extreme swelling of her brain. Dr. Alicia gave us 39 years of love, laughing, and life changing. She was an extremely passionate, caring, and talented soul who touched thousands of lives. We are all blessed to have known her and we will continue her legacy of changing lives through the Full Armor Center, chiropractic, and Young Living. Her mission was to save as many lives as possible, especially children. And we will honor her daily as we continue her mission. She ran her race and she ran her race well.
