Today we’d like to introduce you to Jeremy Sedlock.
Jeremy, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I was fortunate in that my first experience with chiropractic was in the office of a doctor who focused on an area known as Structural Correction. I wasn’t aware at the time that there were different types of chiropractors, I thought they all did pretty much the same thing. Structural chiropractors take an engineering approach to the spine, and the doctor I went to see was able to show me how my spine had shifted and was beginning to cause signs of early disc degeneration – which shouldn’t be happening at 18!
I had originally planned to go to medical school but after getting to know this doctor better and learning more about Structural Chiropractic, I knew it was what I wanted to do. I attended Kent State University to pursue my undergraduate degree in psychology and complete the pre-chiropractic coursework necessary to be accepted into the 4-year program. I completed the doctor of chiropractic program at Life University in Marietta. It was during the program that I met my wife Cynthia, who was also studying to be a chiropractor.
After graduation I worked in Loganville and Dacula, seeing patients and also taking advanced coursework. In July of 2016, my wife and I opened Revolution Chiropractic in Johns Creek. I focus on Structural Correction of the spine much like the doctor I originally saw. It was a long journey from that first visit, but it was completely worth where we are now, serving Johns Creek and surrounding areas with scienced-based structural chiropractic care.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
My wife gave birth to our first child shortly after we opened our first clinic, and our second little one came soon after. The biggest challenge we face is what I’m sure many small business owners relate to – trying to grow a business while also balancing out raising kids. When I meet with local neurosurgeons, orthopedists and pediatricians to discuss cases we’re co-managing, arranging meetings around a busy home life can sometimes be challenging.
We’d love to hear more about your business.
I focus on an area of chiropractic known as Structural Correction. Most chiropractors, massage therapists, and physical therapists focus on the relief of symptoms like muscle spasms, range of motion issues, and acute pain. While there is no doubt that they will make you feel better, if your condition is related to an underlying structural shift in the spine, you may need someone who focuses on what we do, which is structural correction of the spine.
Think about it like this: if a house is not resting correctly on its foundation, you may notice a number of secondary problems in the home like cracks in the walls, creaking floor boards, and windows that don’t open and close easily. You could try to patch the drywall or spray some WD-40 on the windows, but will any of that solve the problem, or would it make sense to have someone come out and look at the underlying frame of the house? Most chiropractors focus on symptoms, and that’s okay, there’s nothing wrong with that. From their perspective, once the symptoms go away, the problem is solved. Structural chiropractors look at evaluating the underlying structural integrity of the spine and correcting the issue at the root level.
I think we’re also unique in that we don’t do any twisting or cracking of the neck or other spinal structures. Instead, we use very precise and gentle correction methods to direct the spine back to a more normal position.
My favorite thing when working with our patients is the ability to take time and educate them about their spine and overall health. We have many people experience an “Aha moment,” where suddenly a lot of things begin to make sense about the way they’ve been feeling for what sometimes has been decades.
What were you like growing up?
I guess you could say I’ve always been a quiet person. Even so, I always stayed active and involved in sports growing up. That interest in physical fitness and active living made it somewhat easier to focus on the massive amount of coursework that is thrown at you in the chiropractic program. Watching my father own a business as I was growing up also had a huge effect on me because it allowed me to see the importance of building relationships and treating people well.
