Meet Drs. Susan & Madan Rao

“It’s not enough to have lived. We should be determined to live for something. May I suggest that it be creating joy for others, sharing what we have for the betterment of mankind, bringing hope to the lost and love to the lonely.” - Leo F. Buscaglia, psychologist

A Passionate Desire to Make a Difference

A passionate desire to make a difference in the lives of their patients is what sets Rao Family Chiropractic & Wellness Center apart as a unique and special family health and wellness provider. And…it’s the reason why Drs. Susan and Madan Rao became chiropractors in the first place!

“We were high school sweethearts, and also first-generation Americans, both of us proud children of Indian parents,” states Dr. Susan. “We both attended the University of Oklahoma for our undergraduate studies,” chimes in her husband, Dr. Madan. He adds, “Susan got a BA in Psychology, while I received a BA in Marketing. I had originally wanted to go to Med School. At that time, I didn’t know a thing about chiropractic, but we both knew we wanted to somehow change people’s lives. We wanted to help people to realize and embrace their true human potential. It became clear that chiropractic was the best way to fulfill this purpose.”

Becoming a Chiropractor

After college, Dr. Susan enrolled in the prestigious Parker University in Dallas, Texas where she earned not only her Doctorate of Chiropractic but also became a Certified Chiropractic Clinical Neurologist. What does that certification mean? As Dr. Susan explains, “I am trained to work with all types of brain injuries and neurological conditions, including ADD/ADHD, vertigo, migraines and MS. It’s extremely rewarding for me to be able to bring hope and healing into the lives of these patients. And they’re both amazed and grateful for the positive changes that chiropractic care brings to their lives!”

After Dr. Susan finished up her chiropractic studies at Parker, she and Madan headed for Spain, where Dr. Susan was able to bring her own special brand of treatment to her Spanish patients. “I was fluent in Spanish so this was a wonderful opportunity for me. I am proud to say I am also fluent in English and Punjabi (an Indian dialect), with a working knowledge of Hindi.” When they returned from Spain, Dr. Madan began his chiropractic education at Parker College of Chiropractic.

So what brought Drs. Susan and Madan to Bee Cave?

“We wanted to plant our roots in a family-oriented community,” responds Dr. Susan. “And Bee Cave is everything we are looking for,” adds Dr. Madan. “We looked at a lot of different communities in the Austin area and chose Bee Cave because there were families everywhere. And…since we both love water activities and sports, being by the lake was an added bonus!”

The Importance of Patient Education

“Teaching patients about their nervous system and how it controls every organ, every muscle, every tissue, and every cell in their body helps them to understand the importance of keeping it in perfect working condition to stay healthy,” states Dr. Madan. “That’s what health care is all about. It’s challenging to convey this to people who have grown up believing that “sick” care is “health” care when it is anything but that! The body can heal itself without risky drugs and surgery and we help our patients experience that type of true healing.”

Dr. Madan enjoys working with all types of health challenges, but he especially likes caring for patients with sports injuries or problems with their extremities, such as their shoulders, knees, and ankles.

How do Drs. Susan and Madan advance their own healthy lifestyles?

They eat nutritional foods, take vitamins, exercise every day and work at creating balance in their busy lives. Dr. Susan says, “We try to live what we preach. We know that when we feel better, we live better and maintaining a sense of balance in our professional and personal lives is essential for our health and wellbeing. This is the message we convey to our patients as well.”

In their “downtime” hours, Drs. Susan and Madan like to watch and play sports (Dr. Madan likes basketball, volleyball, running and cycling while Dr. Susan likes soccer, running, weight training, spinning and yoga). They also love to travel and experience different cultures from around the world.

They invite you to call them and to visit their office so you can discover the life you were meant to live – a life free of pain and discomfort and full of health and the vibrant energy that millions of others under chiropractic care have already come to know.
