Dr. Leslie Bronson is a native of Jacksonville. Her journey with Chiropractic started in her teenage years, when she was injured performing gymnastics. She spend many of her younger years on competitive teams swimming and diving, as well as being involved in running, gymnastics and cheerleading. An injury she sustained during a competition, lead her to receive her first chiropractic adjustment by Dr. Iselborn (still practicing in the San Marco area of Jacksonville). It was then, that the interest in healthcare began. After thoroughly investigating many different jobs in healthcare, she realized chiropractic was perfect for her. Chiropractic patients are generally proactive and are looking for ways to remain healthy and in good physical condition. Through her years of college and graduate school, chiropractic evolved for her, in wonderful ways she's never dreamed it would. She had found her calling.
Following graduation from Wolfson Senior High, she attended the University of North Florida to study Biology. She then proceeded to Atlanta, GA to attend Life University, at the time, the world's largest Chiropractic School. She currently holds a Bachelors Degree of Science in Nutrition, and her Doctorate in Chiropractic, graduating with honors.
Following graduation, she returned home to give birth to her son, in 2000. Shortly thereafter she passed the Florida State Board. After spending nine wonderful months at home with her son, she was eager to get back to serving others through Chiropractic full time.
She practiced at two private practices in the Jacksonville metro area, as well as doing some fill-in work before opening up her own private practice in the Julington Creek area in May of 2005.
She genuinely cares for each and every patient that she comes in contact with in her life. She loves to see her patients freed from pains and limitations that have held them back, and strives to educate them so that they may stay healthy and live a full life. She truly loves practicing Chiropractic and understands that for every patient she has helped in her office, she is actually helping many others through improving the life of just that one patient. And although that gives her much satisfaction, she still hopes that everyone will come to the knowledge of true Chiropractic and understand that getting their spine checked is monumental if health is a priority.
Dr. Bronson has spent over 60 hours in post-graduate courses to educate her further on the care of pregnant women and pediatric patients. Pregnancy is an important time in a woman's life, to say the least, and the need for a fully functioning body is crucial to her and her developing baby's health, as well as a labor and delivery with no complications. Dr. Bronson is trained in the Websters Breech Turning Technique - an effective, low force adjustment to the pelvis which assists the baby in assuming the vertex position necessary for the birthing process. Dr. Bronson firmly believes that chiropractic care during infancy and childhood is essential to health. In addition to the birth process, falls and bumps to the head, there are many ways a young spine is misaligned (subluxated). The adjusting techniques used are modified to fit each patient; from the sleeping newborn, to the squirmy toddler. Dr. Bronson cares for each of her young patients as she does her own family, and gives all of them time to get to know her and feel comfortable with the adjusting process. All of the adjustments delivered are gentle, and we have yet to see one child who doesn't want an adjustment!
Dr. Bronson uses a "whole person approach" when taking care of her patients. By combining specific chiropractic adjusting techniques with fundamental health information, Dr. Bronson is able to help you to accelerate and/or maintain your journey to good health.
