Dr. Hubbell has one of the best BackFit Health + Spine stories. He has always wanted to be a chiropractor. He even proclaimed it at his high school graduation reception. But as the saying goes: when we are busy making plans, life happens.

He grew up in St. Michaels, Arizona on the Navajo Reservation. He is an enrolled member of the Diné Nation. His maternal clan is ‘Áshįįhi (Salt People) and his paternal clan is Dibéłizhinií (Black Sheep). Dr. Hubbell graduated from Arizona State University with a degree in Exercise Science in 1999.

He then worked for the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community in Scottsdale as an Exercise Specialist under the Diabetes Prevention Program. Dr. Hubbell was also working as a personal trainer at Life Time Fitness, where he met Dr. Yasmin Rahimi who encouraged him to apply at BackFit as an Exercise Therapist. Dr. Hubbell then worked for four years at BackFit helping patients with physical rehabilitation.

In 2011, when a family member- who was at his high school graduation reception- asked if he was a chiropractor yet, Dr. Hubbell was once again challenged to fulfill his lifelong dream. With the support of his family, he applied and was accepted to Palmer College of Chiropractic- West in San Jose, California. He and his wife loaded up a U-Haul and headed west!

Dr. Hubbell was an active student while attending Palmer College. He served as a member of the Palmer Sports Council, promoting chiropractic care at local Bay Area sporting events. Dr. Hubbell was also a Campus Guide for Palmer, helping new and prospective students feel welcome.

Finally, in March 2015, Dr. Hubbell earned his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Palmer. With the vote of the Palmer Clinical Professors, Dr. Hubbell also won the coveted Clinical Excellence Award, which is given to the one student per graduating class who exemplifies the highest standard of chiropractic care.

And now, since graduation, he helps all his patients regain form, function, and balance. Dr. Hubbell is proud and honored to be back with the amazing team at BackFit Health + Spine to continue promoting the benefits of Chiropractic Care.

He gives special thanks to his college sweetheart and wife, Jennifer, and his wonderful son, Ethan, for all their love and support.

Absolutely love this place! My husband and I have been going here for a while, and every time they remember us. We never have to re-explain anything. From the front desk to the medical team and chiropractors, they genuinely care. I’ve been having issues with my back and knee for as long as I can remember, and they helped make me feel better then I ever have. It's hard to find businesses that are run like BackFit. They have what is best for you at heart. Thanks for making my husband and I feel better then we’ve felt in years!

I would highly recommend BackFit. The staff and doctors are wonderful and my treatment has been very successful. My migraine headaches and sciatic nerve pain are completely gone. I have significantly less lower back pain and much more range of motion despite the fact that the disc in my back was very damaged. I can now go about my daily living without health issues getting in the way.

Great adjustments. Friendly staff too. Good therapists for exercising and stretching before I get adjusted. Been going for 4 years, totally love coming to get adjusted. Not scary at all. I had severe lower back pain and spasms. When I go for a routine adjustment it keeps from back pain occurring and my back spasming.

Going to BackFit was one of the best decisions I've made. I couldn't get out of bed because of severe back pain. I called BackFit and they were able to see me that day. They took x-rays in office. Loved that I didn't have to go anywhere else. Went back a couple days later to go over x-ray results with the chiropractor and started working on a solution, also with their in-house physician assistant and physical therapist. Not only have they been able to relieve the pain in my back but they have worked on other kinks in my body. Oh, and they also helped me lose weight. What more can I say, the people are amazing and the results are amazing! If anything in your body hurts, go to BackFit!

I look forward and enjoy every visit in my road to back recovery. The staff is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and welcoming. I will no longer be looking for another chiropractor office to meet my back needs. I also like the fact they provide other health needs.

I was a little weary at first, but man even in the first two weeks they are really making a difference in my health! I felt the difference just after my first visit! I am committed to coming back and staying consistently. I actually recommend!
