Dr. Chris Gubbels

Meet Dr. Chris Gubbels

Dr. Chris Gubbels is an Advanced Certified Chiropractic BioPhysicis practitioner with specialized training in scoliosis, personal injury, and neuropathy. He has an extensive CV with multiple advanced training and certifications in spine biomechanics, scoliosis, neuropathy, and personal injury and trauma. He has additionally presented at multiple scoliosis and spine research conferences, been published in peer-reviewed scientific journals, and is highly regarded as an expert in spine correction, scoliosis, and personal injury by his peers.

Dr. Gubbels suffered a neck injury while wrestling in college. This injury led him down the path of physical therapy, pain medication, and manual therapy, all of which had failed to treat his injury. His wrestling coach referred him to a chiropractor where, after just a few visits, he was able to return to competition. The treatment and recovery that Dr. Gubbels received from the chiropractor inspired him to become a chiropractor himself and become a part of the solution for others that find themselves in similar situations.

Square One Health Integrated Medical Clinic has the most highly trained doctors in Spine Correction in Fort Collins, Colorado.

People come to us for many reasons at our Square One Health chiropractor clinic in Fort Collins. Most commonly people are sick and tired of suffering with the symptoms of a problem in their spine that is never being properly corrected. They are sick of waking up with pain every day and having their hobbies limited by how they happen to feel that day. Others are missing work due to pain and symptoms, or they are becoming less productive and fear losing their job due to someone who can do the work unaffected by pain and suffering.

We have even had an entire corporation recommend that its employees seek whatever level of chiropractic treatment they might need with us, just to achieve a greater state of holistic wellness in their lives which leads to a happier and more productive workplace.

Victims of auto injuries commonly require some form of chiropractic treatment after having suffered bodily trauma, frequently in the form of whiplash of the neck or sudden impact to some other area of the body. Dr. Gubbels has taken extensive training in the identification of these injuries and proper management at Square One Health integrated medical clinic as well as co-managing with other providers in our community.

Great friendly environment and very knowledgeable staff! I came in with severe lower back pain and after one month in I was starting to forget I ever had pain!

I was blessed enough to find Dr. Chris randomly on the internet. I would recommend Him to anyone and everyone. He is the best Chiropractor I have ever seen "One of a Kind".

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.

    Is SoftWave therapy safe after surgery?

Some doctors even use SoftWave in the operating room immediately after surgery, to activate the body’s healing process.

  • Does SoftWave therapy have side effects?

    Side effects from SoftWave therapy are minimal and non-restrictive. SoftWave does not cause bruising or swelling, although some patients may experience slight redness and soreness that typically subsides within one to two days. While recovery downtime is not usually needed, we recommend avoiding high-impact movements or exercise for the first 24-48 hours.
