About Susan Butler
Susan Butler is a seasoned administrative assistant that found her way to Mend Chiropractic in an unconventional way. She was born and raised in a suburb of New Haven, CT.
Susan moved from Connecticut to South Carolina in 2012, and later realized she couldn’t give up her New England roots, settling in Rutland, MA in 2018.
Susan was born with mild spastic diplegic cerebral palsy. From an early age she has lived by the motto “I have a disability, but I am not disabled.” Although it is minor, Susan experiences muscle tightness, weakness, and spasms on a daily basis. From the age of nine months to age eighteen, she had numerous surgeries and attended physical therapy sessions twice a week to help these ongoing issues. After high school, she went on to get a BA in Journalism from Central Connecticut State University where she frequented the gym to keep herself in top shape.
Over the next decade, she attempted to exercise frequently, but after having her son in 2014, everyday life got in the way of her wellness. She naturally put her son’s needs in front of her own. When she moved to Rutland, she realized she had to do something. She felt like she couldn’t even exercise without extreme pain. She was introduced to Mend Chiropractic by her husband who started treatment in the summer of 2019.
She began treatment with Dr. Karolina in July of 2019 and quickly fell in love with chiropractic. Within the first few treatments, her mobility increased, and her pain minimized. Her chiropractic appointments became the “me” time she lost sight of years prior. When the administrative assistant job opened a couple months later, she knew she would be a perfect fit.
Susan has been the administrative assistant at Mend Chiropractic since October of 2019, and thoroughly enjoys coming to work with Dr. Karolina and Dr. Brandon every day. Chiropractic changed her life in so many ways and she is grateful that she not only gets to serve the patients, but also share her story in the process.
Remember, we are all a work in progress. It’s never too late to take that first step on the path to wellness.
