OUR FOUNDER

Dr DORTE BLADT

Chiropractor Dr. Dorte Bladt has dedicated the last 25 years to doing what she loves most: caring for children and families. Dorte is the founder and principal chiropractor at Family Chiropractic Centre – Charlestown.  Her passion for children’s health led Dorte to create ‘Switched-On Kids’, an educational program for Chiropractors who work with children. Dorte teaches this program both nationally and internationally, and is the driving force behind the international paediatric chiropractic research fundraising initiative ‘The Kid’s Summit’.  In addition, Dorte is also the author of ‘Switched-On Kids: The Natural Way for Children to be Their Best’ – a guide for all parents

As part of Dorte’s commitment to providing the most up-to-date care at Family Chiropractic Centre – Charlestown she has continually furthered her education.  She holds a Certificate in Chiropractic Paediatrics through the University of Wales and in Childhood Neurodevelopmental Disorders through International Association of Functional Neurology and Rehabilitation.

She is currently completing a Master of Chiropractic Paediatrics through McTimoney College of Chiropractic in the UK.

Above all, Dorte is a mum – of two now grown up children – who knows what it’s like to raise a child with challenges in learning and development.
