Dr. Randall K. Leraaen, D.C., M.U.A.C.
Dr. Randall Leraaen, or “Dr. Randy” as his patients like to call him, grew up in a small town in northern Iowa, called St. Ansgar. He left St. Ansgar in 1989, yes not 1889, and continued his education at the University of Iowa…receiving his Bachelor of Art’s degree in Psychology in 1993. He then went on to further his education and chose to pursue a chiropractic degree at Cleveland Chiropractic College in Kansas City, MO. He graduated with a Doctor of Chiropractic degree in 1997, and earned a secondary certification in Acupuncture, as well.
Dr. Randy moved out to the Phoenix area shortly after graduation, as he had developed a love for the area after visiting the Valley of the Sun on a number of occasions. His initial work was predominantly with patients involved in auto accidents and hurt on-the-job, but he since has expanded his practice to include patients of all ages and stages of life. Dr. Randy utilizes physical therapeutic modalities (such as cold laser therapy, rehabilitative exercise, ultrasound, and electromyostimulation) to help his patients heal quicker, and achieve longer-lasting results, from their injuries.
One of Dr. Randy’s favorite treatment modalities is acupuncture. He has treated patients with acupuncture for a multitude of conditions with great results. Headaches, neck pain, back pain, addictions, weight loss, and many other conditions can be treated with needle acupuncture. For those “needle-phobes” out there, Dr. Randy can use a needless form of acupuncture as well!
Dr. Randy’s goal in his practice is to help as many patients as he can to achieve better health, and live healthier lives. He strives to provide each patient with individualized care, and treats each of his patients like members of his family. He looks forward to meeting new patients on a daily basis, and can’t wait to see you at his practice!
