I have a new lease on life, I can turn my head fully with no pain, bend my knee fully with no pain and exercise again. My breathing has improved and arrhythmia has disappeared.
A huge thank you to Nicole for helping me and giving me a new lease on life. I have tried many other modalities but your process is the only one that addresses tendons and nerve conditions that were causing my discomfort and seriously affecting the quality of my sleep. For the first time in 18 years, since I had glandular fever I can turn my head all the way to the left and right with no pain. I can also bend my knee with full flexion without pain. I haven’t been able to exercise for the last 18 years because exercise triggered pain in my hips, knees and legs. I’ve now been able to start exercising again. My breathing has also improved and the arrhythmia I was experiencing has disappeared completely. I was impressed by your skill and gentle, reassuring manner. I am so grateful, thank you Nicole

Chiropractic helped my baby turn, helped with my child's chronic ear infections and saved me from burnout
The first time I got in contact with chiropractic therapy, at 36 weeks pregnant, my baby had not turned head down, but after one session, she turned and I had an easy natural delivery. The next time I visited the practice was for very different reasons. I was close to burn-out, trying to balance work, a Masters’ degree and two small kids. After a few sessions with Nicole where she told me I needed to change things or otherwise I could end up with a chronic disorder, I quit my job and decided to slow things down. I saw Nicole twice a week and the adjustments helped me to get my body back in balance and out of the chronic ‘fight-flight’-situation that I was in. This was the start of a new journey in my life and I am incredibly thankful to Nicole and the team.
In the last few years, I have taken my kids to Nicole and Susan as well for adjustments; my daughter was struggling with recurrent ear infections, and I didn’t want her to be on antibiotics every time. She had a few adjustments and never developed an ear infection again.
As a medical doctor myself I was not very familiar with chiropractic therapy, but over the years I have seen the impact it has and how well it can be combined with other health practices as it has a unique value in restoring the function of the musculoskeletal system and with that, the connection with and functioning of the nervous system.
Chiropractic aims to treat the root cause of a disease instead of treating a symptom, which I think is very important, also to prevent recurrence of health-issues.
I will most definitely refer my patients for chiropractic therapy, as I think in this time and age it is important to look at health from a multidimensional perspective, where different specialties each have their place in the treatment of a patient.

I feel stronger, more energetic, less anxious and my head seems clearer. I feel more resilient and able to deal with stress better.
"Dr Nicole doesn’t just focus on alleviating pain, but rather looks at the patient holistically. Her application of neurologically based chiropractic essentially addresses the underlying stressors and potential pain and illness generators, thus getting to the root cause of the problem. The aim is to change the body’s ‘bad’ habits and create new neural pathways to achieve a sustainable, favourable outcome. I myself have experienced a positive change with her treatments. I feel stronger, more energetic, less anxious and my head seems clearer. As a physiotherapist who treats many patients with chronic pain conditions, I have learned that chronic pain is very complex and not just physical in nature. By tapping into the patient’s story, history and surrounding stressors (in addition to the physical pain) one can make a significant difference to the lives of these patients. This is where neurologically based chiropractic is so beneficial.” - Merryn Manley
I would like to personally thank the Fourways Chiropractic team, especially Dr Susan Goslett as I have been a patient for several years and each time visiting the practice I appreciate the balance that has been restored after the session. Each experience is unique and individualized for my body. It is amazing as it contributes to feeling insync with my body as a whole, even stressors become a thing of the past when I leave the practice feeling so light and gravity-free - Nadia Naidoo
I started chiro when I was in my 3rd trimester due to constant lower back and leg pain. It was like sciatica and my muscles were stiff from all the tension in my back trying to carry the heavy baby. I was referred to Dr Susan due to her expertise with pregnant women and infants.
How did chiro benefit me? Well, it benefited my entire family.
From the very first session, I found some relief. With more sessions, I noticed how the quality of life in my home was improving. I had gradually become impatient and unpleasant to my children and husband because any physical movement caused a sharp pain and sitting or laying still gave a dull but constant pain. With chiro I noticed that I became a better mother and wife as I was able to increase my attention and care for them.
Emotionally, before my chiro sessions I was depleted. I felt unhappy and didn't enjoy the pregnancy. It was such a damp and heavy feeling that I thought I was falling into a depression due to the constant feeling of being overwhelmed and unable to do anything. The pain had also affected my marriage because I could not be intimate with my husband. This was putting a strain on our relationship, but because he could see the constant struggle I was having with the pain, he could somehow understand.
The power of chiro cannot be restricted to the physical benefits, as it has a ripple effect into all areas including mental, emotional and general wellbeing.
I brought my 9 year old daughter, Gemma to Fourways Chiropractic as she was suffering from frequent headaches. After the very first adjustment, she woke up the following morning excitedly declaring that she did not have a headache !!! Gemma is sleeping better and is far less anxious. She loves having her adjustments with Nicole and leaves the practice so relaxed, like she is floating on a cloud, all balanced and content. We think that Fourways Chiropractic is simply the best !” - Tanya Collins
I was suffering from neck pain which led me to a consultation with Nicole. By the next morning I had immediate improvement. I also found that I feel less bloated, am no longer struggling with constipation and my energy levels are much better. I would highly recommend Fourways Chiropractic. “ - Linda Lindeque.
We brought our son, Luke to see Susan to assist us with his ADHD, walking on his toes, stress and anxiety. We have seen an improvement and have found that he now walks almost flat most days, is interested in school work and wants to read. His anxiety is better and instead of being anxious all the time, he is now only anxious over expected events like the school play. Everyone at the practice is great, their interaction with Luke is amazing. He felt comfortable from day 1 which is unusual for him. We had an emotional breakdown one day which was a breakthrough and turning point for us - he is not holding on to his emotions as much. He is listening better, cries less, is sleeping better and is just a happier child. - Roanne Walker
“I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2017 and halfway through chemo treatment I was introduced to Dr Susan Goslett. Regular visits with her helped me through months of tension, extreme fatigue, anxiety and difficulty sleeping. The treatments undoubtedly boosted my immune system as well as my energy levels. Having regular treatments while going through chemo and radiation and now continuing as I aim to reach the 5 year cancer-free mark, has made a huge impact in dealing with all the emotions that the diagnosis brings. It is a warm and very friendly practice with two amazing doctors in Susan and Nicole and an equally awesome receptionist in Renee. Besides the benefits of TRT I have been given constant positive and emotional support and encouragement as well as advice on how to help me gain back mental strength and a strong and healthy body.” - Diane Holm
My 2nd pregnancy was much easier, I slept better and had more energy and the labour was much shorter thanks to chiropractic
From about 20 weeks of my second pregnancy, I was suffering from a lot of general aches and pains, but specifically sciatica. I could not pick up my toddler. I did a session 2 to 3 times a week until about 38 weeks. Without a doubt, without the chiropractic, I would have been bedridden with pain. But instead I could move around, stand upright and walk properly. I could pick up my toddler with no aches and pains. Nicole also helped my body deal with stress better, I slept better and had more energy. She took time to figure out the underlying reasons for my pain.
The biggest benefit to me though was my labouring process. With my first child I was in labour for 24 hours… 14 being active labour! It took so long to progress leaving me in so much pain for a very long period of time. But this time I was in active labour for about 4 hours… it just progressed so quickly. It was still really painful, but much better to handle as it was for a short time. And for that I will definitely credit my chiro sessions with Nicole. She made sure my pelvis and hips were in alignment. I am so grateful I did these sessions as I was not looking forward to another long labour. I definitely recommend chiro sessions while pregnant! Everyone at Fourways Chiropractic is so sweet, gentle, caring and welcoming. - Michelle Bovo
