Chiropractic Specialties


Pediatric Chiropractic

Dr. Katie Schlein offers pediatric chiropractic in San Diego, CA. Chiropractic care for kids and babies is a gentle and effective way to relieve common health challenges like latching problems, colic, allergies, constipation, digestion, immune deficiencies, asthma and sleep issues. Dr. Katie is an active member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) and is specially trained to work with infants, babies, and kiddos of all ages. Fun fact: the amount of pressure used to adjust an infant is about what one uses to check the ripeness of a tomato. 

Prenatal Chiropractic

A growing belly means lots of added stress to a momma’s body and nervous system. Throughout our lives, posture, small traumas, large traumas, stress, and other various forces can drastically impact a woman's pelvic alignment. Gentle chiropractic care during pregnancy helps to balance the pelvis, spine, and nervous system to enhance baby's development and encourage optimal fetal positioning. Prenatal chiropractic care can also help reduce aches and pains resulting in less intervention and reduced labor times. Dr. Katie Schlein in San Diego is Webster Technique certified with the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association.  



Sports Chiropractic For Kids

Chiropractic supports youth athletes as they grow and transition to their sports and athletic endeavors. Not only does it help with injury prevention, it increases performance and proprioception to give their body an edge in performing at their best. Dr. Katie, being an avid and previous college athlete herself, loves taking care of youth athletes. Chiropractic allows growing young athletes’ bodies to be moving and functioning properly so they can perform at their highest level.

Dr. Katie acknowledges the inherent health challenges and stress that military, students and 1st responders endure. For those populations, many health problems ensue such as PTSD, digestive issues, headaches, depression and fatigue. Many of our military, 1st responder and student practice members understand the benefit of getting one’s spine checked regularly to help heal from their prior physical and emotional stress.
