Family Connection Chiropractic (#FCchiro)


Dr. Katie is amazing, gentle and her passion to help kids feel & perform at their best is evident. I was very hesitant when I first asked about my then 2yr son getting adjusted but she was willing to take the time & provide me with research and answer all my questions.

My 3yr old son has Down Syndrome, was up multiple times a night, chronic ear infections & colds, and is not able to walk on his own. Within 2 weeks of being adjusted a couple times a week he was finally sleeping better. Every night he was going longer & longer and now sleeps 10-12 hours straight through. That's a miracle enough but on top of that he has not been hospitalized with health challenges or had to go on antibiotics since we started chiropractic care which has almost been a year.

I have been able to witness his body fight through and his immune system be strengthened. His nervous system has calmed down and he's not shaking as much when he stands, hopefully we are getting closer to walking.

Seeing the difference in my son this past year since he started chiropractic care has been amazing and I can't thank Dr. Katie enough for helping make a difference in my son's life.

10 years ago I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, and in that time I've never met a medical professional who cares as deeply as she does.

Her genuine character and caring personality make her one of the most amazing humans I have ever met. Dr. Katie understands the emotional/physical struggles I face, and with regular adjustments she helps keep my immune system the healthiest it can be.

The improvements I've seen in my body and life are astronomical, and I wouldn't be where I'm at without this tremendous woman.

I can't recommend her enough; do your body a favor and go meet this incredible lady!

My husband and I were referred to Dr. Katie by a co-worker of my husband's and I am so glad we found her. We have been seeing Dr. Katie since I found out I was pregnant in March of this year (2018).

Katie is the greatest listener, a master at healing the body, and is so incredibly passionate about what she does. She now sees my husband, my 5 year old daughter, and myself on a weekly basis and we can all attest to the improvements in our health. My husband started his treatment with misaligned hips and a bad shoulder from his time in the Navy and his current job. He also had poor digestion and troubles sleeping. He says he feels better than ever and sleeps through the night more so than ever.

My daughter had regular headaches, was sick with a cold often, and had stomach aches...she has not had a cold or reported a single headache since we began treatment and her stomach aches have subsided. My pregnancy has been complication free and I sleep so much better at night.

I will continue to send my family to Dr. Katie as long as she continues her practice. She has grown from a healthcare practitioner to a true friend of our family. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone, especially fellow pregnant mommas. Her prices are more than reasonable and she truly does what she can to make sure you are taken care of, no matter what that means: scheduling, pricing, comfort, etc.--

I can’t say enough about Dr. Katie! I saw her throughout my entire pregnancy and I have no doubt that helped me to stay healthy and active.

I always leave feeling great, Dr. Katie has such a positive outlook and it’s contagious./

Now I get to bring my little one in as well!

I have been going to see Dr. Katie for the last few months to deal with chronic headaches/migraines as well as back and neck issues that have come about from 24 years in law enforcement. Dr. Katie has made a huge difference in my life.

My headaches are gone and I feel physically better than I have in a long time. Dr. Katie takes the time to get to know you and listens carefully. She isn't just about solving your physical pain and discomfort. She believes, and so do I now, that chiropractic services are the total package of keeping your mind, body and soul in top condition.

I'm always greeted with a warm smile when I arrive. She is definitely one of the highlights of my week and going to see her for the first time was one of the BEST decisions I ever made. I can't say enough good things about her.

Dr. Katie Schlein is amazing! She treated me pre-pregnancy, now for pre-natal care, and will be my chiropractor for baby and me. Dr. Katie is passionate about serving her San Diego community and helping people thrive.

She is a wealth of knowledge and takes the time to explain any questions and concerns you may have. She meets you at your level of treatment comfort and is not pushy.

Dr. Katie is the best option if you are looking for someone that is kind, caring, and really good at what she does. I highly recommend her for everyone in your family!

I was recommended to see Dr. Katie by a co-worker due to the toll our job takes on our bodies. I've suffered with back pain, muscle aches and poor sleep for years from work and sports.

After only a few sessions with Dr. Katie, I've been sleeping significantly better and my entire body functions much smoother.

Not only is she a great chiropractor but her entire philosophy to healing and life is genuine and refreshing.

I have a great time when I go see Dr. Katie and will continue to see her for a long time to come.

Doctor Katie was instrumental in getting my little one to latch properly and painlessly.

I never knew that chiropractic adjustments could have such a profound, immediate and direct result as they have had for us.

And since we started our weekly appointments a year ago we feel great! Our immune systems are better and we haven't been sick--even through the winter!

Dr. Katie started caring for me during my 6th month of my first pregnancy. I didn't even know that pre-natal chiropractic care was a thing, but I quickly learned it was a necessity!

Shortly after my first visit we learned that my little girl was breech. Dr. Katie got to work and kept me comfortable and aligned. By the 8th month baby had turned and was in optimal position for a natural delivery! Not only did she help me physically, but Dr. Katie took the time during each of my visits to discuss different options and lifestyle changes with me that would also aide in a peaceful, natural, and beautiful pregnancy and birth.

My last pre-natal visit was the day before I went into labor and I was able to labor at home for 10 hours then deliver in less than 30 minutes naturally and drug-free at the hospital. My daughter had her first adjustment at 11 days old and has gone every week since. She is happy and as healthy as can be.

Each visit Dr. Katie asks if we are having any trouble with anything and then works her magic. She has helped us with everything from constipation to latching issues! Dr. Katie continues to care for both myself and my daughter with keeping us aligned as well as educating me and offering her professional advice whenever I ask for it. She is amazing and has changed my life for the better.

I always leave her office feeling a million times better than I came in, with a smile on my face, and the confidence in knowing my baby is comfortable and happy as well. Not to mention, she always has a kind word and a warm hug to top it all off!

  • Dr. Katie is a gem! She is an amazing healer and cares deeply for her clients well being. I bring my whole family and we have all seen significant benefit in our health from reduction in headaches, colds and anxiety. That would be enough to keep coming back, but we also love being around her contagious kids even like going so that's the real proof! Thanks Dr. Katie
