Dr. Susan E. Ford attained her Bachelor’s of Science Degree from Cook College, Rutgers University in 1975. Her course of study was Wildlife Biology with special interest in animal communication and behavior. She worked at the University for 5 years in avian and mosquito research when she discovered chiropractic care. She decided that she would become a chiropractor after experiencing the tremendous benefits of care and received her Doctor of Chiropractic in 1984. She has practiced in Mercer County since 1984.
In 1998, Dr. Ford came across a new technique for the treatment of allergies called NAET or Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Technique. Having two healthy children, her third child seemed to have many more ear infections and digestive difficulties. Dr. Ford knew that there was more that could be done for her son. She began training in the NAET technique in 1999 and discovered that her son was allergic to calcium. When Dr. Ford ‘cleared’ him of that allergy, his sensitivity to dairy and soy products completely disappeared.
It is Dr. Ford's belief that healing takes place in the body once interference is removed. This can be done through chiropractic care or NAET. She believes that no one knows their body better than you and she listens to what you have to say without rushing. Appointments are made so that you have the time necessary for your care, and treatment is individualized. If necessary, therapeutic modalities are used such as moist hot packs, ultrasound, electrical muscle stimulation and massage. If Dr. Ford finds it necessary, she may recommend an appointment with a massage therapist.
“My name is Michael Johnson. The specific problems that I was having were with my neck, shoulders, hips, severe headaches and mid-back region. With regard to my neck, I was unable to perform the simplest of tasks, such as turning my head from side to side. I was unable to lift my arms without shooting pains in my shoulders and my middle upper back would burn and hurt almost constantly. Sleep was next to impossible. I spoke with Dr. Ford and asked her if she thought this was a condition that should be treated by a medical physician or if she thought chiropractic care should be sought. I can honestly say I am "pain-free". If your results are as good as mine, you won't be sorry!”
Thank you Dr. Ford!
