      I have had debilitating headaches for years and have seen countless doctors, chiropractors, and had several procedures all without much relief. Jen had a unique ability to actually listen to what my body was telling her. This allowed her focus on my problem areas, whether it was joint or soft tissue related. It wasn't until I was half way home that I actually realized I hadn't felt that good in years. Range of motion, pain, tenderness and overall well-being were at a level never experienced. This is the treatment I've been praying for and she will forever have my gratitude. Highly recommended!

      Simply amazing results. After a very prominent chiro in Longmont told me after 6 years of regular adjustments that he couldn't get my spine in the right place anymore, I came to Dr. Barter. Her appts are 30 mins long and totally different than regular chiropractors. She removed the scar tissue that was preventing my spine from moving to the right place. I have even gained over 1 inch of height.She's helped my blood sugar and thyroid and I have lots more energy as well. I refer everyone to Alternative Family Medicine.

      Dr. Christian was incredibly thorough in her treatments. The holistic approach is something that was unique from previously experiences.I work with athletes for a living and was a former college athlete myself. My knees have not allowed me to work and train the way I was accustomed to. Dr. Christian provided treatments and muscle exercises that helped significantly reduce the pain in my knees.I can't thank Alternative Family Medicine & Chiropractic enough for getting me back to the activities and lifestyle I want to lead!Would recommend them to anyone and everyone!!!

      I've had many many sessions with Dr Jenn Christian. She's the real-deal chiropractor. Doing Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (submission wrestling) at my age is maybe not the smartest thing. She's put me back together multiple times so I can keep training. She's incredibly nice, and not afraid to spend extra time on persistent problems.
