Experience & History

  • Pathways first began as Kramer Chiropractic Health Center, which started in Edina, MN in 1988. During those 12 years in Edina, I watched my family grow from one to four children (& now 5 total). With a growing family, my desire to be closer to home became a priority, and in August of 2000, I sold the Edina Clinic and purchased Wilma E. Behm’s Clinic of 30 years. The transition has been exceptional, and I feel blessed to be working in Prior Lake.
  • In 2003, we moved to our present location in downtown Prior Lake in Lakefront Plaza where the running & bike paths are plentiful and the small-town feel is alive and well.
  • In May of 2013, we purchased a 2nd clinic in Savage and Dr. Barnett is enjoying the challenge of helping more people in the Savage community.
  • In January of 2014, we officially changed our name to Pathways Chiropractic Health Center as we are expanding and re-branding our clinics.
  • Since opening the doors in 1988, I’ve treated thousands of patients ranging from newborns to seniors; those involved in sports injuries, auto, and work-related accidents, as well as repetitive and postural conditions. We are continually working towards helping each patient resume the active lifestyle they desire. I have also built an excellent network of professionals including neurologists and orthopedists to consult with when the need arises.
  • Growing up with 7 siblings in a small town in rural southwestern Minnesota (Who’s been to Lucan, MN?) gave me many blessings. I think one of those was enjoying being able to communicate with people of all ages. I look forward to helping you solve your health conditions as well as improve, sustain, and protect the quality of your health.
