Susan has been practising chiropractic for 28 years and has worked in many locations before settling in Dorset. She has been working at Casterbridge Chiropractic Clinic for many years but has now decided to work closer to home.
Susan has a particular interest and experience in Functional Neurology and has attended and qualified to Chiropractic Board Certified level in Neurology. This puts her in an exclusive club of specialising chiropractors. She is also a contributing author to chiropractic textbooks.
Susan's approach looks at the whole nervous system, particularly brain function. The brain controls how we function and interact with our perceived environment. Weaknesses result in patterns of weakness which can eventually manifest in functional problems.
Using standard neurological tests and optokinetic (eye movements) evaluation it is possible to identify weaknesses that could easily be overlooked. A program of exercises to strengthen the weak areas is then devised and if the problem is functional, positive changes will occur that help to rebalance the reflexes that control us.

We will be updating topics regarding this in due course so if interested please follow us through facebook and we will post links to them there.
