I dare say Susan Eisen is one of the best, if not the best chiropractor in the entire US, and I don?t make such statements lightly. After trying 5 other chiropractors in New York and San Francisco, I?m convinced that Susan is a rare gem who can accurately, quickly, and gently put bones back into healthy alignment without any harsh adjustments. She uses a special table which buffers all of the adjustments so you can hardly feel the bones moving into place. I've experienced that some chiropractors will perform suspiciously similar adjustments for everyone regardless of their individual misalignment or problem that many chiropractors can't even identify. Susan is incredibly adept and accurate at feeling every disc of your neck, spine, and other bones to determine the location and degree of misalignment. Then with movements customized for your body and specific problem, she'll then gently adjust your bones into place while you are placed upon the state-of-the-art hydraulic table used at both her NYC and NJ offices.
My extreme story may illustrate just how exceptional she is. After being under Susan?s care on and off for 7 years in NY for misaligned hips, I moved to San Francisco, where I was rear-ended while driving on a 4-lane highway. The neck and back pain that ensued was unexpected, agonizing, and debilitating. I couldn?t even work at the computer, exercise, or lift grocery bags without pain. Eight months, one chiropractor, one osteopathic doctor, one orthopedic doctor, countless office visits and massages later, I still desperately needed dramatic relief and improvement. I flew back to New York, saw Susan, who figured out that my spine had been twisted in the accident (I was sitting twisted when hit) and my spine was STILL twisted --since the accident!! Over the course of two weeks, one by one she put numerous bones back into place, giving me great relief from pain and the feeling of ?ahh, now this finally feels right again? with each bone corrected. She even determined that some of my pain and misalignment was caused by a tightened psoas muscle from the accident and corrected it. Only after Susan?s treatment did I make significant progress in my recovery. She saved my life, for without her, I have no doubt my back and neck pain would have worsened into debilitating, life-long chronic pain; I?m not sure anyone else but Susan could have put my bones back into place.
If my neck/back gets really painful and doesn't get better through exercise and other last resorts, I fly back to New York to see her ? she?s just that worth it. I can?t recommend her enough for anyone who has pain or tension in their back, neck, shoulders, and hips. If that applies to you, do yourself a favor, save yourself time, suffering and money and go see Susan. She will put your bones back into their proper place without injuring you.
Pros: EXTREMELY accurate in putting bones back into place
