Chicago Chiropractor – Dr. Rachel Leibovitz, DC
After suffering multiple sports injuries, the benefits of chiropractic care were crystal clear to Dr.
Originally from Naperville, IL, she first learned to love the world of sports from
a young age and eventually attended Grand Valley State University on a lacrosse scholarship.
Yet, playing lacrosse at the college level had caused wear and tear on her body, and she
started seeing a chiropractor after several injuries had kept her sidelined and not feeling her
best. It was through this experience that she learned the importance of conservative treatment
and how routine adjustments offered a positive effect on the whole body, not just the spine
alone. This experience, as well as a lifelong love for sports, influenced Dr. Leibovitz to pursue a
career as a Doctor of Chiropractic.
Today, Dr. Leibovitz enjoys working with patients of all backgrounds, but especially enjoys
assisting athletes on their journeys to wellness.
When she’s not busy working with patients, Dr. Leibovitz enjoys being active, whether it’s in the
gym or the outdoors, as well as attending Chicago sporting events and spending time with
family and friends.
