Dr. Christa Hubbard was born and raised in Marquette, MI. It is her pleasure to practice in her hometown offering health services to her beloved community. Dr. Christa is extremely passionate about providing rehabilitative therapy and utilizes cutting-edge neuromuscular applications as she strives to assist patients in improving their quality of life and function.
Her drive to pursue this career developed as a result of her passion for athletics and sports performance, as well as obtaining multiple concussions and orthopedic sports injuries. Further, in her late 20's, Dr. Christa severely suffered from a very profound brain-based movement disorder called dystonia. At the worst of her dystonic limitations, any time she would move her right arm, her right leg would move. She had severe difficulty with all activities of daily living and thought her life was coming to a close in terms of being able to move.
Enter Dr. Frederick Carrick, Professor Emeritus and founder at the Carrick Institute, and the rest becomes an evolving history. Dr. Carrick is a pioneer in the field of Clinical Neuroscience and Dr. Christa has exclusively taken his coursework, as well as assisted him at clinical rounds in Atlanta, GA working with patients suffering from a wide variety of complex neurological conditions. Her passion in sports training and performance, undergraduate studies in Engineering, extensive study in movement disorders, traumatic brain injury, and neurology results in combined therapies that are custom-tailored to best serve our patients' needs.
Dr. Christa strives to improve her patients' ability to move and perform with appropriate and non-fatiguing, pain-free function, as well assisting with optimum performance and improvement. She is committed to constantly learning more and electively takes over 100 hours, on average, of continuing education courses each year in clinical neurology coursework through the Carrick Institute. Dr. Christa is Board Certified from the American Chiropractic Neurology Board, is one of four Board Members since 2015, a Fellow of the American College of Functional Neurology (2009), Fellow of the American Board of Vestibular Rehabilitation (2009), and Fellow of the American Board of Brain Injury and Rehabilitation (2015).
