Chronic Pain Scottsdale AZ Leisa Grgula

Doctor Leisa Grgula is a Chiropractic Physician at Accurate Care Medical Wellness Center in Scottsdale, AZ. If you are struggling with neck or back pain, headaches or migraines, carpal tunnel, sciatica, or any other health condition please contact us today.

In our practice and in our healing community we operate under these beliefs:

  • We believe the body can heal itself, given the right guidance and direction.
  • We believe drugs hide the cause and prevent natural healing.
  • We believe patients deserve the care their bodies need to heal. Not what the pharmaceutical industry tells them they need.
  • We believe people heal in their own time, when they need it. Everyone’s healing process is different.

Education and Background

  • I hold a Bachelor degree in Human Biology, and received my Doctor of Chiropractic Degree from National University of Health Sciences, formally National College Of Chiropractic, Lombard, IL in 1995.
  • Certified Cox Decompression Manipulative Therapy in 1995.
  • I studied acupuncture both privately, and at National, with Dr. Chih-Wei Rei, Chinese Orthopedic Surgeon, and Chiropractic Physician.
  • I’m originally from Massachusetts, and practiced in Chicago for one year, after graduating, I lived and practiced in Sedona since 1996, and have now practiced in North Phoenix since 2007. Since the sale of my Sedona practice in 2010, I now practice solely in North Phoenix.

My Healing Philosophy is Based On Personal PAIN!

“Back in chiropractic school when I was learning to improve others’ health, I began experiencing health problems of my own. I developed severe ulcerative colitis required two surgeries and extensive pharmaceutical therapy.

This difficult experience prompted me to learn as much as possible about gut health, inflammation, and nutrition.

As a result of my research and discoveries, I’m in recovery from ulcerative colitis, medication free, since 2000.  It has further enhanced my ability to empathize with people whose lives are affected by debilitating conditions.”

Nutrition , food, and exercise programs are integrated into my treatment plans. I help people make small changes in their life that will allow them to enjoy the activities they love without pain or health restrictions.

I believe so many conditions that afflict patients are directly related to the food they eat, their nutrition, and their exercise. My broad based thorough approach integrates an holistic philosophy to the healing process, allowing the body to heal itself.

I maintain my own health by lifting weights and have competed as an amateur bodybuilder. Enjoying the outdoors here in Arizona, one of my favorite activities is gardening. As a gourmet cook, who’s cooked professionally, I enjoy growing my own organic fruits and vegetables.
