Athletes looking to improve performance or individuals of all ages wanting to lessen that chronic shoulder ache have another option for treatment in Dillon.

Pursuit Chiropractic and Sports Performance opened its doors in June. Dr. Jeff Feenstra offers chiropractic care melded with different treatment types for sports injuries to address pain without medication. Feenstra, a Bozeman native and University of Montana Western graduate, is certified to treat patients of all ages with chiropractic and sports chiropractic care.

Chiropractors are experts in the care of the muscular and skeletal system, and how those relate to everyday functions of the body, Feenstra said.

“The goal is to be able to provide a plan to help not only get you out of pain, but keep you out of pain,” he said. “We treat the source of the problem and not just kick you out the door with pain medication.”

Sports chiropractors treat sports injuries and assists with physical fitness to prevent future injury.

“The main difference is we blend chiropractic and other treatment types...layering in some functional rehabilitation and exercise,” he said. “In this style of practice, whether you are working with an elite athlete or an elderly person, you can work with the same principles and grade them to help get them back doing what they want to do – whether it’s triathlons or loading groceries in the car without having that pain in the shoulder.”

Feenstra graduated from the University of Montana Western with a degree in secondary education, health and biology/ physical education. He and his wife, Hillary (also a UMW grad) moved to Dallas, Texas, where Feenstra completed chiropractic training. The couple returned to Bozeman, where Feenstra practiced for 10 years before returning to Dillon.

“We were really excited to come back here and reconnect with the community that both my wife and I loved for years,” he said. The Feenstras enjoy outdoor activities such as hunting and fishing, and wanted to raise their three children in a smaller town environment.
