I consulted with Dr Talia as I was suffering from severe IBS, anxiety with nocturnal panic attacks and back and neck pain from tension due to work stress. I have experienced improvements in all these areas. I hardly experience IBS flare ups and don't take any medication for it any more. Dr Talia taught me how to work through my anxiety and since I've started, I haven't experienced any panic attacks. The back and neck is a given - I have no pain. I sleep much better and feel like I have more energy. I would highly recommend the practice and only wish that there was another branch in other areas to assist my family and have more people benefit from this - Yolande de Wet.
I first contacted Fourways Chiropractic for help with an old back injury, following a motor vehicle accident in 2008, which had flared up. At the time of my first consultation at the practice, I was barely mobile and in severe pain. Following consultations with Dr Talia, my lower back is no longer tweaking or sore at all. The "catching" sensation in my mid back is also gone. Over and above that, I am sleeping much better and wake feeling rested. I viewed this method of using the brain to help heal the body as an interesting approach, but it really does seem to work - I am feeling good. I would definitely recommend the practice to others - Jovan Heynsen
We have noticed massive changes in Bella over the last year. She is calmer, more confident and actually enjoys school now. We have no more challenges in getting her to school! She still has her emotional outbursts but are not nearly as much, and we are better prepared as we know when they are going to happen…mainly related to change (ie a new car etc)
I personally believe Nicole has been one of the biggest contributors to Bella’s well being, and I cannot thank her enough for that 😊 - Danni Graham
I consulted with Dr Talia as I have bad posture and I have experienced great improvement in this area. I am also a lot more relaxed and feeling less tension in my body. I have far less tension headaches. The best part of the experience is the kindness of Talia. There is no judgement and it makes it easier to come in knowing I won't be judged. I would most definitely recommend the practice to others - Sanveer Sing
I highly recommend Fourways Chiropractor, I had severe pain in my left shoulder which kept me awake at night. After going to see Dr Talia Seale for a few visits I am almost pain free, it had made such a difference to my every day life, no more pain killers (which I have been taking every day). Thank you Dr Talia. Also a big thank you to Renee who has been so helpful and friendly. Its a pleasure going to your rooms _ Mary
I have seen a remarkable improvement in several areas of my mental and physical well being since beginning treatment with Dr Talia Seale at Fourways Chiropractic. I initially sought treatment for the ongoing ache in my lower back. Not only has the back pain been alleviated, but my debilitating digestive and sleep difficulties have also improved, all contributing to lower levels of anxiety and an enhanced sense of well being. Whilst I expected to achieve physical relief from chiropractic adjustments, I did not expect all the additional benefits and healing from these neurologically-based chiropractic sessions. I am thrilled with the treatment I am receiving and am so grateful to Dr Seale for the kind and patient insight and treatments - Robin.
It has been 10 years since the diagnosis of Fibromyalgia was given to me. Over the years I searched and tried many different treatments/medications/remedies just to get some relief. After a while I stopped hoping and just tried my best to struggle from one day to the next, with very little change or improvement. Living in chronic pain, having chronic fatigue and an array of other debilitating symptoms, whilst trying to balance work, family, friends, health etc. is life-altering on so many levels.
I was recently introduced to TRT therapy with Dr Talia Seale at Fourways Chiro and I am writing this review to share my incredible experience. At first, I had my reservations and was certainly not holding my breath for that miracle I have been wanting for so long. The treatment consultation was thorough and nothing like I have experienced before, furthermore, the way I felt after the treatment was a far cry from the battle-bruised body I normally leave with when visiting a chiro or physio.
I started noticing results after the first two sessions. Yup, believe it! I have gone from being a chronic 8/10 on the pain scale to having days where I am a 2/10. Areas of my body which had restricted movement have been restored to almost full use, and not just for a few hours but days. For the first time in years, I am able to sleep and wake up feeling like my body actually rested, repaired and restored itself. I don’t feel absolutely exhausted after having a shower, just after I woke up in the morning, like I used to. Recently, I went shopping with my mom for an entire day! This was a luxury my body did not afford me, with 3 hours being my max usually, before I needed to lie down and rest.
There is much research done on FM and what causes it but most professionals agree that there is a link between FM and your mental/emotional wellbeing. Having PTSD is no joke and it causes havoc in many ways, no matter how strong-willed you are. With TRT treatments not only have I been feeling better physically but mentally I have been more positive too. These last few days I have not been too worried/anxious and although certain stressors trigger me, and this in turn spikes my pain, my recovery from these stressors is faster than it used to be. I have been more alert, which is great because Fibro-fog is a real thing, I am more energetic, positive and feel really happy (on the inside). I find myself not having to fake being well for the first time in a very LONG time.
This is only the beginning of my healing journey and I am so excited to see how my body responds to further treatment. I am so grateful for some change and for relief I thought would never come - Ashley Snow
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
