Dr. Andrew Tislau is a Sheboygan native and is happy to be serving the community he grew up in. He is a graduate of Palmer College of Chiropractic Florida where he excelled in his studies and served as a Clinical Teaching Assistant in the out-patient clinic.
Dr. Tislau is certified in Chiropractic and Physiotherapy by the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners. He is licensed to practice chiropractic in Wisconsin with physical therapy modality and nutritional counseling privileges. Dr. Tislau is also full body certified in Active Release Technique and is part of the Elite Provider Network.
In addition to his Palmer education, Dr. Tislau has obtained additional certifications in Active Release Technique (the gold standard of soft tissue care), Graston (instrument assisted soft tissue treatment used to break up adhesions and scar tissue), Flexion Distraction (table assisted traction treatment), Activator (low force instrument assisted adjusting), Spinal decompression, and Nutritional counseling. He is also trained in Sole-Supports custom orthotic fitting and modification. This training allows him to tailor his treatment to patients who may not be comfortable with traditional chiropractic care. When appropriate, he will utilize pain relieving therapies and home exercises to accelerate the patient's healing process.
Dr. Tislau sees patients of any age or activity level and enjoys treating sports injuries and other orthopedic conditions. Of particular interest to Dr. Tislau is the relationship between soft tissue and skeletal tissue and their role in pain and dysfunction. He believes that addressing both of these areas of dysfunction results in quicker and longer lasting pain relief. Dr. Tislau practices a whole patient approach to care by seeking out and uncovering the root cause of each individual patient's problems with a thorough examination. He routinely coordinates patient care with other specialists and if necessary will make the appropriate referral.
Dr. Tislau enjoys spending time with his wife and three daughters, serving within his church and community, golfing, hunting, fishing, surfing, and exercising.
