Dr. Leila Doolittle, DC, IFMCP, CFMP, LAc

Doctor of Chiropractic - Parker University

Dr. Leila Doolittle attended Hendrix University for her premed Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Biology and minor in Chemistry. During her time at Hendrix, she shadowed and worked with 20+ doctors of various specialties, learning the details that created better success with their patient's health. She became a certified EMT through the University of Arkansas and worked in emergency rooms and on ambulances to learn how to care for patients in emergency settings. Additionally, she co-founded a non-profit international organization Doctors of Tomorrow, headed an Odyssey project of traveling through the Amazon forests of Peru to study the ancient healing arts of plant medicine from five notorious medicine men and women. To gain the best understanding of patient care in a Chiropractic setting, she worked with a Chiropractic Neurologist, Dr. Chase Norman for several years. Afterwards, she gained another viewpoint of Chiropractic practice by working with Dr. Emily Hurley for one year. 

When she arrived in Dallas in 2013, Dr. Leila stated from the beginning her intention of specializing in neurology and within months, started working at Carrick Brain Centers, learning from some of the most brilliant minds in Functional Neurology - Dr. Ted Carrick, Dr. Brandon Brock and Dr. Cagan Randall. She learned how to effectively help restore patients neurological health when presenting with health concerns ranging from PTSD, TBI (concussions), Parkinson's, Alzheimer's and ADHD to depression, anxiety, migraines, insomnia, chronic fatigue and behavioral issues. 

 

Dr. Leila was also keenly interested in Functional Medicine, and attended 400+ hours of extracurricular seminars training practitioners in the latest advancements in holistic nutritional and dietary studies. She also became certified in Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine to better understand how qi (or chi) energy plays a roll in health.

To hone her Chiropractic skills Dr. Leila attended 200+ hours of extra-curricular Chiropractic seminars, teaching about the most efficacious and specific adjusting techniques, including adjustments to every extremity joint throughout the body. 

She spent 200+ hours shadowing numerous Chiropractors to learn from the wealth of clinical skills and techniques that took each of them years to develop and build in their successful practices. 

In this way, Dr. Leila Doolittle has an extremely well-rounded education and expertise to bring to the table. No matter what symptom or health concern her patients are dealing with, she has a broad clinical understanding of what integrative approach addresses the root of the problem and will most efficiently restore a patient's optimal health

Functional Chiropractic - A holistic approach to spine health

Chiropractic care that addresses every level of the neurological system

In our clinic, we use very specific chiropractic adjusting to correct misalignments in the spine and extremity joints. When there is decreased movement in a joint, or a misalignment of a joint, it can lead to pain in that area, decreased proprioception of the brain connecting to that area of the body, and eventually can contribute to degeneration and arthritis.

 

Many of our patients tell us that chiropractic adjustments received in our clinic help relieve their headaches, sciatica, TMJ pain, back pain, neck pain, stiffness and much more. Although this is wonderful to be able to bring relief for these types of symptoms, our primary goal is to increase nerve signaling and proper biomechanical movement. In this way we take care of the true problem, rather than just treating the system.

Dr. Leila uses a very specific approach to adjusting that helps to increase nerve signaling and proper biomechanical movement, taking care of the true problem. Because of this specific approach to adjusting, our patients consistently feel relief on multiple levels of their health.

it is just as important to keep our extremity joints well adjusted for optimal biomechanical movement as it is to keep our spine moving properly.

Each time you come in for chiropractic care, we will assess every joint in your body to optimal health throughout your entire body.

This is ideal for athletic optimization as joint biomechanoreceptors are able to communicate proprioception to the brain better, thus increasing coordination of movement. This also helps to decrease injuries like sprains and strains.

Extremity adjusting is excellent for patients that type on a computer frequently throughout the day as it can help prevent carpal tunnel syndrome.

Extremity adjusting helps tennis elbow, rotator cuff injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, TMJ problems, grinding of teeth, knee pain, hip pain, frequent ankle sprains, shoulder pain, etc.

Dr. Leila has a passion for helping patients of every age group, and ensures that every child and infant that comes into her practice is well adjusted and that all their neurological pathways are activating optimally so they can cross all their mile-markers at the appropriate time of development. 

Infants and children need chiropractic adjustments too! It is hard work coming through the birth canal, not to mention when they are starting to walk, when they start playing on playgrounds, playing tag and red rover with their friends, start playing peewee sports.. There are many activities that children go through from as early as their birth and they need to have their spines and cranial bones checked and adjusted just as much as adults. 

Dr. Leila Doolittle has a gentle touch and is an excellent adjuster of tiny spines. Parents trust her with their children's biomechanical joint health as well as their digestive and neurological systems health. Consult with Dr. Leila about any questions you may have about symptoms your little one may be experiencing and she will share information on how to ensure that they grow up healthy and strong!

Chiropractic Adjustment

Extremity Adjusting

Soft Tissue Mobilization

Dr. Doolittle believes that the healthiest way to gain full proprioceptive stimulation to the brain is by having every joint in the body in the proper position for healthy range of motion and movement. This is why she takes care to assess and adjust every joint in the body, to get the most balanced input to the brain. She adjusts each bone in the spine, pelvis, extremities, ribs, TMJ, cranial and sinus bones as well as the tiny bones inside the ears. 

Every individual has had an issue at some point in their lives with joints in their limbs getting out of place. Whether this is due to a sprained ankle, carpal tunnel syndrome, knee or hip pain from running, shoulder pain from working out, incessant TMJ pain or rib pain from sleeping in the wrong position, every patient finds extreme relief with Dr. Doolittle's specific extremity adjusting.

Many patients find great benefit with soft tissue mobilization to the organs throughout the abdominal region. This therapy helps to activate the enteric nervous system, increase motility in the lower gastrointestinal tract, to ensure the valves between the stomach to small intestines and in the colon are able to open and close appropriately, and to flush the bile ducts helping with detoxification.
