My name is Dr. Douglas Schlei. I am a Doctor of Chiropractic, originally from Waukesha, WI. My wife, Autumn and I are eager to play an active role in the Wausau community.
I completed my undergraduate education at the University of Wisconsin – La Crosse earning a Bachelor's degree in Health Sciences. I continued my education by pursuing a Doctor of Chiropractic degree at Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington, MN. I completed a wide array of coursework including Occupational Health and Applied Ergonomics that prepared me to not only work with patients and families, but also with local industry.
I discovered my passion for natural healing when I sought Chiropractic care as long term solution for my chronic back pain. Through that personal experience, I was motivated and aspired to become a Doctor of Chiropractic as way to help people without the use of drugs or surgery. My education taught me that by removing or decreasing structural and other abnormalities through Chiropractic, the nervous system is allowed to function at its best.
This allows the body to repair damaged tissue, decrease pain and reduce the likelihood of re-injury and further damage to the body.
