Quality of life is first and foremost in the mind of Dr. Caroline Mohlstrom at Oak Hills Chiropractic Center. And key to that quality of life are the aspects of Integrity, Respect and Trust.
Dr. Mohlstrom knows what it is like to have an injury put one’s life on the sidelines. It happened to her.
A native of Sweden, Dr. Mohlstrom came to the U.S. in her 20s with dual master’s degrees in microbiology and biochemistry. During the early ’80s, she worked for many years as a medical researcher at UCLA’s Department of Neurology.
“I was a long distance runner,” she said. “A sports injury introduced me to chiropractic. It fascinated me. I also liked the fact that I could work directly with people. I’m a people person. I enjoy the energy of being with people.”
A career change seemed in order. She traveled to Chicago to study an additional 4.5 years, receiving her Doctor of Chiropractic degree from the National University of Health Sciences in 1990. Dr. Mohlstrom then established a very successful chiropractic office in Chicago, where she practiced for 20 years before coming to El Dorado Hills.
Dr. Mohlstrom’s approach to patient care is highly individualized. She takes the time necessary to evaluate each situation. Patients are never rushed or “double-booked” at her office.
“I practice as an old-fashioned doctor,” she said. “I take time. I listen. After a thorough patient examination, I can decide whether a patient is a candidate for chiropractic car or if they should be referred out so I can co-manage their condition with another specialist.”
Aside from traditional chiropractic care, Dr. Mohlstrom also uses physiotherapeutic modalities to alleviate pain and inflammation. Trigger point therapy, myofascial release, mobilization and muscle stretching are used extensively at Oak Hills Chiropractic.
True to her roots as a researcher, Dr. Mohlstrom takes an “uncommon sense” approach to life — and her chiropractic practice. There are no fads. The focus is on getting the patient back on the path to wellness. A holistic view is taken of the whole person.
“A person should never feel rushed. They should be listened to, and respected. There has to be mutual trust for healing to occur,” she said. “I explain and educate, so patients understand what is happening to their bodies and what types of treatment may work best in their particular case.”
Dr. Mohlstom works to restore patients to their active lives, so they can keep up with their adventures. It is all about enhancing one’s quality of life. This is a philosophy she embraces for herself, as well. In fact, it’s why she left the Windy City to come to California. On weekends, she enjoys hiking in El Dorado County’s great outdoors.
“I came here because I love nature, hiking and the California weather,” she said. “It is beautiful here.”
Oak Hills Chiropractic Center is located at 1220 Suncast Lane, Suite 7 in El Dorado Hills. Visit drmohlstrom.com or call 916-358-8700.
