Lauren Schreiber's Expert Contributions
Great question! There are a lot of factors that need to be considered. READ MORE
We all like them to be. Unfortunately the stressors of life can cause too much stimuli and the body may not have the resources in order to adapt efficiently and effectively. That's why its a good idea to get checked regularly, just to make sure the body is firing on all cylinders. READ MORE
The goal if Chiropractic care is to improve neurological communication between the body and the brain. Usually arthritis stems from prolonged systemic inflammation and potentially some genetic factors...with that being said, there has been information that shows infra red therapy to be beneficial for arthritis. Are you near St. Louis, MO by chance? READ MORE
Glad there's no pain...It'd probably be a good idea to get a CT done. READ MORE
Its definitely not the only method. It depends on when it started and the degree of the scoliosis. I've seen mild scoliosis X-rays improve back to a "normal" looking spine after 6 mo of Chiropractic care. READ MORE
Depends on the type of arthritis...but there are some palliative remedies that are healthful for the body. READ MORE
I have personally seen pre and post MRIs of a chiropractic patient having their bulging disc remiss. With that being said, Chiropractic was just one factor that contributed to it. They also worked on their core tone, did rehabilitative exercises and cleaned up their diet. READ MORE
Thats a rather generalized question....if you can resolve the root cause of the hip pain then, yeah I don't see why not. Would be best to have a conversation about where/when and how it all started to determine the best approach. READ MORE
It varies a little depending on the history of the scoliosis.....but I've had good luck so far. READ MORE
Depends on the Chiropractor and what you do in your "free" time. READ MORE
Thats one approach...would definitely have it looked at by a Chiropractor though. READ MORE
For me...upper trap pain stemmed from long-term shallow breathing. So if you're a chest breather taking time to decompress...meditate, big buddha belly breaths etc would be a solid start. READ MORE
Oh lateral epicondylitis!! Yeah, typically.... READ MORE
It would vary based on a few factors like age, daily activities, your job etc...Are you located near St. Louis, MO? Would love to help! READ MORE
Well, that depends on how the pain got there....Would need to have a conversation to determine the best approach. READ MORE
Yeah...muscles are supplied with a blood supply and a nerve supply...improve the communication from the brain to the muscle via the neurology while also improving the circulation with some PT modalities....like, why haven't you seen a Chiropractor yet? READ MORE
It all depends on the position the body was in when you injured it. What state are you located in? READ MORE
It varies slightly. Easier to answer if we could have a conversation about how you slipped your disc. READ MORE
Usually its on the back with a pillow underneath the knees. Or on your side with a pillow in between the knees. It would be smart to have a conversation about how/when/and where the lower back pain started just to make sure we're getting to the root of the problem. No pun intended ;) READ MORE
Thank you for the question! I’m sorry to hear you’re experiencing neck pain. There’s a lot of factors that need to be considered. Best way would be to set up an appointment so we can chat about how it got there. READ MORE

Get to know Chiropractor Dr. Lauren Schreiber, who serves patients in Troy, Illinois.
Dr. Schreiber, a licensed chiropractor, founded Lux Vitae Wellness, LLC in Troy, Illinois on August 9th, 2010 with the vision of empowering each individual on their journey to health.
She is excited about sharing what she has personally found as life-enhancing healthcare such as regular chiropractic adjustments paired with high-quality, fluoride-free H20 from the Tyent Water Ionizer, Doterra Essential Oils, the Richway Biomat, and Standard Process products.
Growing up in a small Midwestern town just East of the Mississippi, Dr. Schreiber was first introduced to chiropractic care at the age of 16 after her vehicle was T-boned on the driver’s side, throwing her into oncoming traffic. After going the traditional medical route and a few months of physical therapy, she was introduced to a local chiropractor, receiving complete relief in just a couple months.
While attending Logan College of Chiropractic, she founded the Logan College Wellness Club and was later mentored by an upper cervical doctor in Des Peres, Missouri who introduced her to the history of chiropractic and the concept of upper cervical chiropractic care…scientifically, it made sense due to the high concentration of mechanoreceptors in the upper area of the spine. During that time, Dr. Schreiber met up with a few individuals at Dynamic Essentials in Marietta, Georgia who spoke about a “Lasting Purpose” and a “Give, Love, Serve” mentality.
After learning more of how chiropractic came to be and the plethora of techniques out there, she decided to transfer to Life Chiropractic College West in California in order to be the most highly trained chiropractor possible.
In order to best support her profession in protecting the foundational principles that chiropractic was founded on – no drugs or surgery – in 2018 as a member of the California Chiropractor’s Association, Dr. Schreiber teamed up with chiropractors from all over the state to lobby for AB 888, which would require stricter regulations from medical doctors in prescribing an opioid for the course of a treatment. This bill also required that medical doctors recommend adjunct methods of treatment such as acupuncture and chiropractic care.
In 2019, Dr. Schreiber became the President for the International Chiropractor’s Association (Life West Chapter) to support this mission. She participated in various private healing retreats in Northern California, before relocating to her hometown in Troy, Illinois.
Continuously advancing her efforts, she is an active member of the American Chiropractor’s Association, the League of Chiropractic Women, the International Federation of Chiropractors and Organizations, the Illinois Chiropractic Society, the Association for the History of Chiropractic, and the Silver Creek Rotary Club.
Chiropractic is a form of alternative medicine that mainly deals with the diagnosis and treatment of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, especially the spine. A chiropractor uses spinal adjustments, manipulation, and other techniques to manage patients’ health concerns, including neck pain, back pain, headaches, vertigo and a long list of other ailments and conditions. They aim to improve patients’ functionality and quality of life by properly aligning the body’s musculoskeletal structure and enabling the body to heal itself naturally, without the use of medication or surgery.
