Meet the Doctor
Alex Leasenby, D.C.
Dr. Alex’s focus is on quality patient care. He works hard to connect with his patients and understand what they want to accomplish with their treatments.
“Here at the clinic, we are very function oriented. We listen to our patients and work hard to understand what their goals are for their recovery,” explained Dr. Alex. “We really listen to our patients’ needs. It could be a simple need like someone wanting to brush his teeth without pain in his shoulder, or a greater goal like someone hoping to able to go for a walk with her husband again.”
A FAMILY PRACTICE
Dr. Alex is the son of Dr. Tim Leasenby making the Leasenby Clinic a truly family-run practice. Dr. Alex’s mother, Kim Leasenby, is the office manager and even Dr. Alex’s grandmother, Judy Carter, comes into the office to help decorate for every holiday.
“Chiropractic has just always been a part of our family,” said Dr. Alex. “I worked for 4 years in the clinic while I was going to school as an undergrad. I helped out in the clinic, working with patients as a clinical assistant, doing things like deep tissue massage. Through those early experiences, I found that I really had a strong passion for working in chiropractic care.”
As the newest member of the practice, Dr. Alex brings some new ideas to the Leasenby Clinic.
“I bring a lot of new information about Applied Kinesthesiology to the clinic,” stressed Dr. Alex. “My father and I went to different schools, so we have different ways of working and different experiences.”
“Because of my studies on the latest research, I have learned a lot of new techniques for rehabilitation and working with athletes. One of my niches at the clinic has been working with highly competitive high school and college level athletes. I really enjoy working with athletes to help them reach their full potential. I’m an athlete myself, a weightlifter, and I can relate well with people who push their bodies to perform at the highest level.”
Dr. Alex plans on continuing his studies and education in healthcare. Dr. Alex's chief areas of interest include nutrition, acupuncture, and Applied Knesthesiology. He feels that it’s important for his patients that he has a well-rounded education that keeps up with the most recent research in healthcare.
“I have a strong background in the hard sciences. My undergraduate degree is in biochemistry with a minor in psychology,” said Dr. Alex. “So I have done a lot of training in the chemical processes that are happening in the body. I really like my patients to understand what is going on with their bodies at a cellular level.”
Dr. Alex has been very pleased with the success he has had with his new patients. One of his patients came in with a lumbar disc herniation. The patient had a very physically demanding job and had been unable to work for more than a month.
“Even walking was difficult for this patient,” stressed Dr. Alex. “Within a week, we were able to get him ambulatory and pain free. The results weren't instantaneous, but every time he came in, he was able to make more progress and be more pain free.”
“We used a combination of acupuncture and Cox flexion-distraction. This is something we commonly use for discs to help manage pain. The Cox flexion-distraction technique helps take the pressure off the disc which helps manage pain and heal the disc. To get such a successful result so quickly, it truly was the highlight of my week. And best of all, he’s back on the job able to work full time and pain free. It really felt good to help him.”
NEW DOCTOR, NEW ATTITUDE, NEW HOURS
Dr. Alex is excited about working with new patients and is looking forward to applying his education and unique experience to the clinic’s practice. His addition to the staff also means the clinic will be able to offer new hours on Thursdays from 2 to 6pm.
“I’m happy to have my own clinic hours on Thursday,” said Dr. Alex. “I’m very confident in my abilities and very excited to be helping out more patients.”
