About Disc Centers of America

Dr. Susan Cunico

Dr. Susan CunicoDr. Susan Cunico, Sandyston Chiropractor. I was first enlightened about Chiropractic at a very young age. My dad was a contractor and had a terrible fall off a 2nd story ladder which broke, tumbling him to the ground. He was a very large athletic built man and didn’t want to cover up the pain but rather deal with the cause. Hence he saw a Chiropractor who enabled him to continue to work and be productive. We as well also started to get adjusted for our health, the Dr. said to turn on your power that runs your body. I was always told by my father that I should become a Chiropractor. After going to nursing school and being an R.N. with specialty in the I.C.U./C.C.U. units and R.R. I knew I wanted to see the patients before they got into such terrible health. This is when years later I fulfilled my dad’s dream and my hidden one as well. I have never looked back and have helped thousands of patients reach their true potential of health!
