Dr. Leslie Botta, D.C.

First, I am human just like everyone else.  I am a mom, a daughter, a sister, a weekend warrior, a reading fanatic, a health practitioner, as well as a health sufferer.  We all need health help. My goal is to help as many people as I can.​ Professionally, I have been practicing for 24 years.
 

I began with my own practice in Scotia, NY, then I was honored with being the first and only Doctor of
Chiropractic to serve as a Commissioner of the NY State Workers Compensation Board. It was exciting to broaden the knowledge of the WCB as to the benefits and the education of Chiropractors. Do you know how similar the requirements are for a DC and an MD degree? 

 

I then became the Deputy Director of the Office of CAM* at the NYS Dept. of Health.  Currently
I see patients in Bradley, IL. I offer you health for your whole self. I don’t just “crack backs”. Through
Chiropractic, Nutrition, Whole Body Cleansing, and many other CAM tools I can help you experience life to the fullest with a body that  is functioning optimally!

*CAM stands for Complementary and Alternative Medicine and includes practices such as: Chiropractic, Acupuncture, Yoga and Massage.

benefits of chiropractic:

Chiropractic is a natural form of health care based on the diagnosis and treatment of misalignments of any joint, focusing on those of the spinal column. Many aliments that cause pain and discomfort in the nerves, muscles, and organs originate in the spinal column. In our practice, we balance the entire Muscular-Skeletal System and Nervous system to encourage 100% full function of all body systems.

 

What does 100% full function mean? Most people walking around right now have bodies essentially functioning at only 70% of their potential. Your body is very adaptive, so by the time you feel pain and discomfort your body is essentially functioning below 50% of it’s potential.

 

The brain and spinal cord is the master system that controls your whole body. Without a fully functioning nervous system, the signals that are traveling through your body can’t get through.

With every patient, we take a wellness based approach. Once we move past acute phases of pain and discomfort we work together to improve overall body function. The difference is we focus on staying healthy versus treating issues as they arise.  

 

At its core, chiropractic care is a drug free, surgery free option to improve overall body function. We accomplish this by correcting the underlying problems, instead of just addressing the outward symptoms.
