Dr. Vicki M. Hemmett
After taking a break to have two beautiful daughters and a son, Dr. Vicki Hemmett has returned to practice with an intimate, fresh perspective on women’s health. Dr. Vicki specializes in whole woman care. A pregnancy changes a woman’s body in numerous ways. From the initial mental excitement and anticipation, to the glowing growth phase of mid-pregnancy, to the final phase of full-term, a woman’s body needs help to adapt to these dramatic changes.
Dr. Vicki utilizes several gentle, effective treatments to help relieve many physical manifestations associated with these changes during this wonderful transition. Low back pain, sciatica, numbness and tingling in the hands and feet and headaches are a few pregnancy-related symptoms that can be safely and effectively relieved.
Dr. Vicki is a certified pelvic floor rehabilitative therapist and has developed and will soon be teaching her own Pelvic Floor Release Therapy Technique. She has had tremendous success treating a wide range of pelvic floor conditions and receives referrals from a wide array of medical providers. She lectures to medical providers about the conservative care options for pre and postnatal women, breech presentation and pelvic floor dysfunction.
Dr. Vicki is certified in the Webster Breech Turning technique which has a very high success rate for turning uncomplicated cases through gentle manipulation. Postnatal care is very important to help the new mother regain her previous body and abdominal stability and adapt to the new demands of motherhood. New mothers need to enjoy their beautiful babies with a healthy, nourished body. Often, simple ergonomic instruction about breastfeeding and sleeping positioning can help resolve headaches, upper back and neck symptoms.
Dr. Vicki is an avid runner, and enjoys outdoor activities with her family.
