Dr. Sandy Macleod
Dr. Macleod graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in 1989 with a Bachelor of Science and a Doctorate of Chiropractic. He became interested in the profession after being exposed to Chiropractic for treatment of injuries sustained while playing high school football that refused to heal with conventional medical care. Those few adjustments that allowed him to get back on the field intrigued him enough to investigate the profession. In the first 10 years of his career he had the opportunity to practice and learn from several established Chiropractors that combined for well over 100 years of experience. He believes structure of the body governs the function of the body. If you just treat the acute problem and do not find out why it happened then problems inevitably return. At Freedom, patients take an active roll in there treatment. This allows them to recover quicker and break the pattern of inflammation that comes with pain and dysfunction. Dr. Macleod is passionate about Chiropractic and enjoys watching the benefits his patients see from it everyday.
