Sandra Cramer BSc MSc DO(mp) CCSP DACNB
Cramer began her interest in neuroscience while studying biopsychology. Biopsychology is the study of brain and behaviour and this is where she earned a four year Bachelor of Science. This is a science degree that looks at the specific areas of the brain involved in different behaviours and personality, along with applications of neuropsychological testing. She then continued onto a Master of Science in Exercise Physiology and Kinesiology. During this time her focus was on the effects of the vestibulo-sympathetic system, and cardiac rehab.
Her interest in bridging together physiology, biomechanics, and neuroscience she continued her education and completed another 4 years graduating from Life University as a Doctor of Chiropractic. While studying Functional Neurology and an interest in sports she became a Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician.
Cramer’s main passion is clinical neurology. She has undergone 10 years of extensive training in post graduate clinical neurology and is a Diplomate of the American Chiropractic Neurology Board (DACNB). Her concentration has been in vestibular rehabilitation and neurodevelopmental disorders, and has studied under both Dr. Carrick and Dr. Mellilo; owners of Brain Balance and Carrick Brain Centers in the U.S. She has ten years of postgraduate studies in vestibular rehab and over a decade in vestibular clinical applications. She had the first Vestibular Rehab clinic in Ontario. She has a deep passion in learning and helping and continues to attend a seminar in the U.S. once a month to keep current on research and clinical applications.
All the applications used for treatment are evidence based, using an in-depth knowledge and study of neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, neuroscience, biomechanics, biopsychology past and current research. All treatment applications are supported with research and are available upon request. Another passion is research; she stays updated every week on all the research, and is currently attending post graduate studies at McMaster University in Clinical Research and attends grand rounds in the U.S. to stay updated on new treatment applications.
Brittany Becker M.HK, B.HK (Honors)
Brittany began her interest in rehabilitation while studying Human Kinetics at the University of Windsor. While completing her undergrad, she volunteered her time working with those with varying physical and mental impairments. Brittany volunteered in the occupational rehabilitation department at Windsor Regional Hospital where she learned about a multitude of clinical populations such as stroke, MS, spinal cord injury and cardiac arrest. Once finishing her Bachelors of Human Kinetics, Brittany went on to complete her Masters of Human Kinetics. During this time, Brittany focused her research on the aging population and in particular, stroke rehabilitation. Her major thesis involved determining the effects of whole-body vibration on strength, balance and mobility for stroke patients. Brittany was also involved with the Adaptive Physical Exercise research group at the University of Windsor. The APE program allows for adults with autism to participate in exercise and sports.
