“My passion for chiropractic started when I was 11 years old. My parents took me to get treated by a chiropractor in Boerne Texas after I was diagnosed with growing pains. I’ve always been active in sports and having routine adjustments decreased my pain and I was able to enjoy playing with the other kids. That year I decided I would be a chiropractor so I could help other people enjoy a painless or pain free life.” In her free time Leesha Kaiser D.C. likes to sew quilts and play Pickleball.
