Dr. Gary Barone, Chiropractor


Sport Chiropractic, with a special interest in children’s athletics and development.  

Gary is the only chiropractor in Western Canada dual-certified in paediatrics and sport.  

Gary has been the proud owner of Una Vita Chiropractic (formerly NewPort Village Chiropractic) since 2000.  As a child he saw chiropractic save his mother’s life, leading him to choose chiropractic as a career.

He focused his first ten years practicing performance enhancement and sport injury recovery.  Many of his patients were elite and professional athletes.

This led him to travel around the world learning from technique masters.  Techniques included Active Release Techniques, Graston Technique, and more.  In 2009 he became an International Certified Chiropractic Sport Physician.   Then in 2010 he became a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist.

The birth of his first child, Alexander, was in 2010.  With this came the desire to improve care for children.

He received the CACCP (Pediatric certification) designation in 2017.  As a result, he became the only chiropractor in Western Canada who has dual certification in Sport Chiropractic and Paediatrics. 

Dr Gary is the only paediatric-certified chiropractor in his city of Port Moody and one of only two in the Tri-City area.

The TIME Technique

Most noteworthy, Gary is the developer of the TIME Stretching Technique (Tension Isolation for Muscle Elasticity) and author of “TIME To Stretch” available on Amazon.com.

It is the first stretching technique designed to safely evaluate and care for tight muscles in people of all ages or abilities using little or no tension.  

A Unique Interest and Approach

His focus is on Sport Chiropractic, with a special interest in children’s athletics and development. He has been chiropractic provider at many international sporting events, including over ten Subaru Ironman Canada Triathlons where he has personally cared for nearly a thousand athletes. In his Port Moody office he has cared for hundreds of elite and professional athletes of all ages.

His approach to enhancing performance begins with the function of the nervous system, which controls every muscle and organ in the body. As a certified provider of Active Release Techniques, his care extends to every muscle and joint of the body to optimize function and movement.

Dr. Barone’s combination of vitalistic and movement-based care creates un-paralleled potential for performance enhancement and health in people of all ages.

As a part of his paediatric training, he is certified in Webster Technique to support mother and baby during pregnancy.

In addition to diversified adjustment, Dr. Barone uses multiple light-touch techniques, also part of his paediatric training, to improve posture and spinal health with children.

These low-force methods can be employed on kids and adults, allowing comfortable and effective care for people of all ages, reducing any reason for concern or anxiety for you or your family.

The Una Vita System

His experience has resulted in a new system of care, unique to Una Vita, that provides variable options for comfortable and personalized care for guests of all ages. The Una Vita system can help elite athletes recover and perform, and it can help you reach your goals as well.

He has been practicing in Newport Village since 2000. His vision is to elevate the chiropractic and healing arts to their highest possible form, educate new doctors, and provide thoughtful and personalized care to every active family in the Lower Mainland.

In his spare time he can be seen on the soccer fields of Port Moody and Coquitlam with his wife and children Alexander (9) and Estella (5).  They can also be spotted skiing, bike-riding, or wandering around in Whistler BC, his second home.
