Developing an Interest in Natural Healing

Dr. Elizabeth LaFleur adjusting patient.With an interest in learning about the human body, Dr. Elizabeth’s path to chiropractic care started early. In high school, she became a certified nursing assistant and worked in a hospital. There, she shadowed different practitioners and thought she would become a physical therapist. She soon discovered, though, that chiropractic was more in line with her belief in natural healing.

After a visit to see a friend at Palmer College of Chiropractic, she was in love with the institution and soon was enrolled.

I think everyone can benefit from chiropractic. It’s about living life in abundance and being well, not just therapy for back pain.”Dr. Elizabeth LaFleur

Focusing on Expecting Moms

Dr. Elizabeth graduated with a Doctor of Chiropractic. In practice, she saw many athletes and thought she would concentrate on sports chiropractic. Having her son, however, put her on a new path. “I had a birthing experience that wasn’t what I hoped for. It ignited a fire in me to help other moms prevent something like that from happening, and I changed my focus to prenatal care.” She’s been fortunate to see moms who were struggling to get pregnant conceive, and to have incredible birth experiences that are just what any parent would desire — natural and free from unnecessary intervention.

She is certified in the Webster Technique, Graston Technique and is a Certified Chiropractic Extremity Practitioner and a member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association.

Outside of the Office
