About Chiropractor


A Message From Dr. Parker

My name is Dr. Leanne Parker, Board Certified Doctor of Chiropractic. I am a graduate of Logan University and I am the owner of Sunny Rock Chiropractic and Sunny Rock Animal Chiropractic. Sunny Rock is an all mobile practice, so I come to you!

I am a native to the St. Louis area and graduated from Hillsboro High School in 2009, about 45 minutes south of the St. Louis area. After high school, I continued my educational pursuits at Jefferson College where I received my Associate of Art Degree in 2012. Through my personal journey with chiropractic care and my passion for helping others, I was driven to begin my education at Logan University. There I received my Bachelors of Science in Human Biology followed by my Doctor of Chiropractic degree in December 2016. Having grown up in the St. Louis area and having a love for all things St. Louis, I have decided to start and grow my practice in a place that has always been my home.

My passion for helping others is matched by my love for animals. With a strong desire to encompass animals in my career, I completed a Certification Course on Animal Chiropractic Care while finishing my chiropractic degree.

I graduated from Options for Animals College of Animal Chiropractic in February 2017, and currently hold an Animal Chiropractor Certificate endorsed by the International Veterinary Chiropractic Association. This certification allows me to give beloved pets and livestock equal attention and care, just as I have always dreamed of doing.

I have had horses and dogs in my life for as long as I can remember, and I can’t imagine my life without either one of them. I have successfully shown Arabian horses and continue to have a passion for competing and riding them. If I am not caring for patients at their home or barn, I am probably outside with my four-legged children. I appreciate your support and I am excited to see how I can brighten your life with chiropractic care.

The future is bright for us.

Yours in health,
Dr. Leanne Parker, D.C.

Chiropractic FAQ's

Dogs with obvious spinal or joint injuries (limping, struggling to move their head, etc.) are the most obvious candidates for chiropractic care.

Especially when coordinated with a vet as part of larger treatment plan, chiropractic work can benefit your pet more than just giving him a cortisone shot, which simply numbs the pain but doesn’t treat the root of the problem.

It’s also particularly valuable for aging pets, working dogs, show dogs, and dogs that participate in agility training. These are some of the pets that tend to have the most problems with their spine, joints, and neck.Additionally, pets that have trouble eating, have arthritis, suffer from acute stiffness or muscle spasms, or have hip dysplasia may also benefit.

Chiropractic care can also be used proactively, to prevent future problems.

Chiropractors that treat dogs use spinal manipulation or manual joint therapy to realign your pet. But before they can do that, they need to figure out what the cause of the problem is.

The next time your dogs are playing, take a good look. Chances are they’re rolling around, jumping on top of each other, or wrestling. It might be fun, but it can also be rough on their body. As a result, spine, hip, and knee issues are among the most common problems chiropractors treat in dogs.

It’s also common for a dog's jaw or neck to be out of alignment. This can lead to your pet having difficulty chewing, opening his mouth, or bending his head down to get to the food bowl. If you notice your fur baby isn’t eating, but seems otherwise healthy, this could be the reason.
