"What can you do for my child?"'

Dr. Leslie Mitzel knows what it’s like to perform at a high level. As a former collegiate rugby player and coach, she understands the toll athletics do to the human body.

High school athletes are always on the move. Waking up, learning, practicing, and game day. If you’re already spending on travel costs and private classes, a sports chiropractor is a must. Help their body prepare for the day ahead and stay on target for whatever’s next.

Get Healthier Without Breaking a Sweat

First Visit

Each client must fill out initial forms, have a consultation and chiropractic exam, and finish with an X-Ray.

Second Visit

In a 45-60 minute session, we will unlock the results of your initial exam and X-Ray. Next, your first adjustment.


Our adjustments use controlled movements that improve mobility no matter the stage of your motherhood plans.

how severe is your child's pain?


Are they experiencing minor tweaks or neck pains from the day before? If a long practice or workout is leaving a nagging pain, calling a sports chiropractor should be your next step! 


Did your son or daughter land weird or slide at the wrong angle? Have you noticed extended screen time giving them a headache? If they say it hurts to run or turn their head in certain directions, it’s time to book an appointment now.


As their parent, you just know something isn’t right. Athletes can mask their pain better than others, but broken bones, severe swelling, and other medical emergencies require more immediate care. Please call your doctor or an emergency physician.
