Chiropractic, Nutrition, Acupuncture, Craniosacral Therapy and Myofascial Bodywork
During your first appointment with Dr. Christine Schlenker at Natural Elements in Milaca, you will be asked several questions about lifestyle, habits, illnesses, and surgeries. Chiropractic physicians use a more holistic approach. They are trained to diagnose and treat disorders of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems including energetic, emotional and chemical factors. So even if it doesn’t seem relevant, we need to understand how you came to the place where you are right now. There is no shortcut to the healing process. There is not one answer to your problem. Each of us are unique and so is the source of your ailment.
How we look at common complaints:
- Headaches, eye pressure, fatigue, neck pain may be caused by liver congestion.
- Bloating, gas, weight gain can result from low back issues.
- Brain fog, fatigue suggests there may be neck issues.
- Anxiety, irritability, depression might be due to jaw issues.
- Knee, shoulder, mid back pain can be caused by gallbladder issues.
The layers of the healing process are not only physical (spinal alignment and muscle knots), but also emotional and chemical. Dr. Christine Schlenker will provide treatment based on accepted natural health care practices, good nutrition, healthy activity, and focus on the power of your body to heal naturally for long-term wellness.

A chiropractic adjustment at our clinic in Milaca is powerful, yet safe. Your body’s ability to heal in response to a chiropractic adjustment is even more powerful. Dr. Christine Schlenker does not heal your condition, but restores normal function within the nervous system allowing your body to begin its own healing process.
Your body has an innate intelligence to react perfectly to every situation with the goal of maintaining homeostasis or balance. In adjusting balances, the chiropractor gives back your body’s ability to respond to the challenges it encounters.
