The history of Westford Family Chiropractic began in the mid-1970's when I was first introduced to chiropractic care by a well known Chiropractor in LaCrosse, WI;  Dr. Fred Barge. Dr. Barge was author of numerous chiropractic text books, researcher of scoliosis and an educational speaker.  His influence and that of his associate, Dr. Charles Price directed me along my the 10th grade I wanted to be a chiropractor.  After graduation from Northwestern College of Chiropractic I fine tuned my skills and techniques at Barge & Barge Chiropractic Center in LaCrosse, WI, preparing me for the day that I opened Westford Family Chiropractic, PC in late 1992.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I have known Dr. Leigh from being one of his first 60+ patients. He has grown his business by leaps and bounds since then. My having moved away for 13 yrs., I am impressed with an occasional visit how incredibly knowledgeable Dr. Leigh is no matter what the medical issue is pertaining to the spine, cervical vertebrae, bones in other areas especially resulting from traumas to the body. I can pick Dr. Leigh's brain and he's always spot on with an answer. Kirstin is a wonderful asset with her proficiency in making appts., insurance info, etc. and pleasant manner with patients."
