Barry graduated high school in Alexandria, MN in 1989 and then joined the United States Air Force. He received training in medical administration then was assigned to Minot AFB, in Minot, North Dakota. In 1991, he married Cheryl LaBranche, who was also in the Air Force and assigned to the base hospital. Through interaction with the different providers at the base hospital, he decided on a future path of study in the medical field. A friend was attending the chiropractic college in nearby Minnesota, and having been an avid weightlifter and receiving treatment from a Chiropractor at home in MN, he researched the field further. In his last year he started his prerequisite studies required to attend Chiropractic College. Upon acceptance to Northwestern College of Chiropractic in Bloomington, MN he then separated from the Air Force. While attending college, he joined the MN Air National Guard unit. Upon graduation, the decision was made to move to the Lakes Region of New Hampshire to practice. Cheryl was originally from Gilford and they had vacationed here many times and loved the area. Barry interned with two local chiropractors before opening Arvidson Chiropractic on a part time basis in June of 1999. He then went full time in June of 2000 and has been steadily building the practice ever since.
