Todd Leach, D.C.
Armed with a degree in Exercise Science from Black Hills State University in South Dakota, Dr. Leach aka (Dr. Rocky), was ready to take on the world. After incurring a low back injury, and performing a deadlift, he sought help through the typical medical route.
First, he tried a General MD, where he was told muscle relaxers and rest would fix the problem. After a month with no results, he did two months of physical therapy. PT made him stronger, but the pain was still there. Finally, he stumbled upon a Chiropractor who told him he had multiple, “subluxations.” His first adjustment was life-altering and with a little pain relief came hope. Dr. Leach was hooked, and from that moment he decided to help others find the hope he found. Providing Chiropractic care became his future.
Dr. Leach decided to get as far away from South Dakota as possible and got accepted into the New Zealand College of Chiropractic. This was too expensive a dream and Palmer College of Chiropractic in Florida was the next best thing. While in school he learned many techniques and took extra electives in Gonstead, Flexion-Distraction, and Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization techniques. He also went to multiple seminars including Gonstead, full spine, and extremity adjusting techniques. He can adjust as gently as necessary with very light drops, that even your grandma would enjoy. He also utilizes traditional manual adjustments with more force for the athlete in the family. After getting a tan and a Doctor of Chiropractic degree in 2019, Dr. Leach worked in a multidisciplinary Chiropractic Clinic in Alaska that specialized in Stem Cell therapy and physical therapy for knees, helping patients avoid surgery for as long as possible. Craving more life experience, Dr. Leach wanted to see what chiropractic was like overseas and learn as much as he could. So, in the middle of a pandemic, the call for adventure brought him to a high-volume clinic in Singapore. Thousands of patients, tons of practical experience, and an inhuman amount of Korean BBQ later it was time to become a clinic owner. Now serving the Northern Colorado community, Dr. Leach is calling Fort Collins, CO home!
