About Santa Cruz Spine & Sport

38 Years ago, I was lucky enough to be born on the beautiful Island of Alemeda in Northern California.  One of my earliest childhood memories was catching my first wave at the San Lorenzo River Mouth in Santa Cruz when I was 4.  Since then the ocean has always been a magnet; calling me back over and over again; Currently My wife and two daughter reside in what is sometimes referred to as Midtown, Santa Cruz,  but what the OG's call the East Side, and what the triple OG's call the Villa Branciforte.  Call it what you want;  We call it Home. 

I started Santa Cruz Spine & Sport in 2010 in the Sea Bright area on Frederick St., in 2015 Tiffany Logan CMT and I moved to the downtown area on the Westside.  Our new space has allowed us to create and place where we have a fun integrated health& wellness center offering Chiropractic, Massage, Personal Training, and Yoga.   - Dr. Justin McLeod, Sport Chiropractor

Surf was so good that day Laila couldn't take her eyes off it. ;)

Every problem can have multiple solutions. To see them you have to look at the big picture overall. Don’t limit yourself to just one route.



I won my first competition back in 2010 at the Mountain West Regional Championships held at Moab, Utah. Sending a 5.13a sport route in a single attempt earned me first place in the Men’s division. Before then, I’d received 1st and 2nd place at a few youth competitions. 2010 was my entry into the big leagues. A couple months after Moab, Utah, I traveled to El Paso, TX for the National Championships. I got second place by sending a 5.13c sport route in two attempts.

In 2012, I won first place in the Nationals held at Acadia National Park, Maine by flashing a V12 bouldering problem. It was my first time visiting the East Coast and I was glad to have been used to Jackson Hole’s more humid weather. I think that gave me an advantage that climbers from drier regions didn’t have. In 2015 I entered my first international competition in Cochamó, Patagonia, Chile. I didn’t place, but plan to for the 2016 championship in Krabi, Thailand.
