Our Techniques

We use a number of effective adjusting approaches in our Lake Forest practice to help improve spinal biomechanics and reduce nervous system interference. The approach we use is based on our judgment and years of experience in Lake Forest.

The primary adjusting techniques we use include:

Cold Laser Therapy

Cold Laser Therapy or Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is a treatment that utilizes specific wavelengths of light to interact with tissue and is thought to help accelerate the healing process.

Interferential Electrical StimulationInterferential Electrical Stimulation

This application uses mild electrical pulses to alternately channel blood flow into and then out of the painful area of inflammation. This procedure draws healing and pain-relieving biological agents into the area while expelling pain-causing toxins.

UltrasoundUltrasound

This soothing therapy delivers ultrasonic waves to generate deep heat to inflamed tissues. Ultrasound increases blood circulation and breaks up adhesions in soft tissues which accelerates healing and improves flexibility.

Neuromuscular Re-education

This rehabilitation program trains patients in techniques that improve posture. The training is done in the office and at home. Improving posture and balancing muscles that support the spine reduces nerve and muscle pain and tension.

Orthotic Shoe InsertsOrthotic Shoe Inserts

Orthotics comfortably provide support to reduce foot pain. Orthotic foot support also aides in pain associated with ankle, knee, and even lower back pain.

Nutritional Counseling

Nutritional supplementation is a vital tool for providing the physical body the nutrients necessary to repair to repair itself and to function at its best. Our nutritional counseling focuses on making healthy changes in diet. The goal is to improve digestion, increase toxin removal, and provide nutrients for strengthening connective tissue including muscle and discs.

If you’ve been to a chiropractor before and prefer to be adjusted in a particular way, let Dr. Schlingman know. We want you to relax, enjoy and fully benefit from your chiropractic care.
