I had a terrific home birth and initially I felt great. But I didn’t realize that carrying around such a small baby in a sling would be quite so hard on my lower back… She has also helped my little family by fixing a strained Daddy’s back and easing an uncomfortable baby. We all sleep better thanks to her care!
I started seeing Dr. Brayton at 35 weeks because I could barely walk from hip and lower back pain. I had read about her specializing in pregnant women and children on this blog (Hoboken Moms’ Group) and wanted to see her sooner but never made the time. She provided immediate reliefm at my first visit and I felt very safe in her care.
By the second visit, I had no pain. I have been seeing her 2-3 times a week for the last 4 weeks and I feel healthy and strong. She has been aligning my pelvis as well so the baby will have an easier delivery. She has recently starting treating my hands which have gone numb from the pregnancy and I’m seeing relief after two visits. In my opinion, her work is truly amazing and I was not a big fan of chiropractic work before now.
I think the last few weeks would have been torture if I had not been seeing her. Instead, I have been able to enjoy my 2 year-old and all the holiday celebrations over the last few weeks. She also specializes in breech babies and on infants with breastfeeding issues. I wish I had known about her when I struggled with my daughter’s breastfeeding issues. I am so grateful to Dr. Brayton for taking such good care of me. Hoboken is lucky to have her.

My treatments with Dr. Brayton have been wonderful. Daily chronic back and neck pain that I have lived with for years (due to ten years of 8-9 hour days at a computer) is finally getting alleviated. Also, my TMJ pain has lessened through treatments. She works my jaw and skull to lessen the tension. Also, foot cramping. I’ve lived with spasms that hurt so bad in my toes. The cramping has lessened and she’s treating me with orthotics which will allow me to exercise and dance again!
I have been practicing yoga for almost ten years but recently my flexibility and productivity in seated postures had atrophied and was reversing. After four months of chiropractic visits with Dr. Brayton, we have discovered that my flexibility is improving in yoga to levels that I have not seen in years, if ever.
I have noticed particular improvement if I have an adjustment right before yoga class.) have also seen enormous improvement in posture, comfort, and strength throughout my back and neck on an ongoing basis. Or. Brayton has done a great job of explaining the issues my back and neck are experiencing so that I can augment the adjustments and help sustain them on my own. Dr. Brayton also quickly resolved a knee problem that I was experiencing while lifting weights. In a matter of a few weeks, my knees which had been making a clicking noise when I walked were repaired to normal. Thank you Or. Brayton!
