Sports and a Healthy Lifestyle
Dr. Schillinger enjoys treating sport injuries because as an avid sports enthusiast, he understands how sports injuries develop and how the conditions can get worse without the proper care.
He played organized sports almost all of his life, up until his late 50's. Plus, he's been a yoga teacher for 33 years and still practices every day. Even now, in his mid-60's, he regularly competes in Ultimate Frisbee and basketball.
By following a specific treatment protocol that includes joint manipulation, physiotherapy, deep tissue massage therapy and exercise rehabilitation (yoga & Pilates), he helps his patients recover in the fastest healing time, with no unnecessary setbacks.
How Chiropractic Can Help You
In order to properly heal your back, arms or legs, chiropractors perform "adjustments", or manipulations. These treatments reduce or eliminate the inflammation on the nerve or in the surrounding soft tissue, like your muscles, tendons or ligaments. With the inflammation gone and your range of motion is restored, you can enjoy a pain free spine or extremity that's less likely to become arthritic as you age.
Dr. Schillinger uses a variety of adjusting techniques, which allows you to choose a treatment style that's most comfortable for you.
A major benefit of chiropractic care is that it does not require medications or surgery.
Because Schillinger Chiropractic and Wellness Center is focused on patient education, you'll learn the lifestyle changes you'll need to make (in exercise, diet, stress management) in order to maintain your spinal health on your own.
