Chiropractic care uses hands and special equipment to gently add motion into a specific spinal or extremity area, helping to:
- relieve nerve pressure,
- restore proper posture and alignment, and
- restore normal body function.
Some conditions Dr. Sedgwick can help include low back pain, neck pain, headaches, knee and hip pain, disc bulges, and sciatica.
Additionally, if you are pregnant and experiencing discomfort, she can also help relieve pregnancy-related pain, pelvic floor weakness, and even nursing difficulties in infants.
Dr. Sedgwick’s specialty is pregnancy chiropractic care. If you have ever been pregnant, you know it can wreak havoc on your body. Chiropractic treatment can help to alleviate some of the most painful and bothersome side effects of pregnancy.
Since your body is constantly changing as you grow another human, Dr. Sedgwick uses specific techniques to ensure the safety, comfort, and effectiveness of the treatments you will be receiving. This is why it’s important to see someone with a certification in Pregnancy Chiropractic care, so you know that the safety of both you and your baby is always first and foremost throughout treatment.
In addition to spinal focus, Dr. Sedgwick is trained to “identify and correct pelvis imbalance for the prevention of breech presentation.” She can also perform soft tissue treatments such as massage, trigger point therapy, and soft tissue mobilization to help:
- reduce aches and pains,
- relax muscles, and
- relieve stress on the spine and pelvis.
These treatments can help women have easier deliveries and even help babies latch more easily throughout breastfeeding.
