Disclaimer: The words and opinions in this review are 100% my own. I was not paid to say or write any of this – everything you read below comes straight from my heart and from my own experience with One Love Chiropractic. Chiropractic care is a more natural form of healing, so please consider your own situation before pursuing any alternative medicine. Thanks!!
At the time, our son was about 11-months old. Adam and I had decided we wanted to spend the day together, so what better date day activity to do without kids than to attend a natural kid’s expo! Yep, we are those parents…you know, the ones who go out on dates, but talk about the kids…we go for a walk, but can’t stop thinking about our kids…we go to the movies, but check our phones the entire time because one of them has a stomach bug. I guess it is a sign that we care (nothing wrong with that, right?)
But anyways, back to my story.
So we went to this Natural Kid’s Expo. It was really neat. There were several tables setup with various alternative health providers, photographers, kids activities, natural cleaning products and even handmade organic cotton baby carriers. It was tons of fun.
We visited each table, because we wanted to find out what else was out there for our kiddos in the local area. One table especially caught our eye – Dr. Derek Kasten with One Love Chiropractic. He and his beautiful wife, Casey, were giving out information about the chiropractic office, sharing what they had to offer and their unique approach to something new to the area; Derek is a Certified Pediatric Chiropractor.
Yea! As we were talking to Derek and his wife, we quickly found out that he could help our son with his chronic constipation. Now THAT would be life-changing. I was already pulling out my hair and stressed out over the fact that my kid could not POOP! And nothing was working to get it out. Derek literally said, “Chiropractic care can help.”
We walked away from the Natural Kid’s Expo with tons of information and great connections, but we only pursued our connection with One Love Chiropractic, and boy am I glad that we did!
Since we have been going to Dr. Derek (a little over a year now) we have noticed the following in one or both of our children:
~ Better balance while walking (or should I say toddling?)
~ Our son’s constipation is NON-EXISTENT!
~ Our kids rarely get sick
~ When they are sick, Derek wants us to bring them in to get a “boost” – and it helps!
~ Little to no colic
~ Better sleep (our kids seem well-rested in the mornings with obvious exceptions)
~ and much more
Not to mention, my kids love Dr. Derek as a person. He is so easy to get along with, is great with kids and creates a comfortable atmosphere for adjustments. In addition to that, his office staff is amazing. Both Louise and Nina are fabulous ladies, they make your wait enjoyable and they welcome every person that comes through the door.
Let’s talk about the waiting room for a sec. So, just by the way, Derek provides DIAPERS, WIPES AND A CHANGING TABLE in the bathroom (which is super clean, by the way!). We also offers free water, hot tea, snacks and features various local products from time to time. Half of the waiting room includes a toy area for the kids, while the other half allows for individuals without kids to sit comfortably and wait.
Moving on to my personal chiropractor care (YEP! Derek adjusts adults too! He adjusts pregnant women, people with physical disabilities, men, anyone and everyone!) I can’t tell you how amazed I am with my results from just ONE month of chiropractic care with Derek. Check out my results:
Results and progress I have seen include:
~ Little to NO headaches (I battled with regular headaches…)
~ Low back pain has pretty much been alleviated
~ I had a breastbone issue from nursing and regular yoga – my ribs would pop more than normal and it was beginning to hurt. Derek has helped to realign my spine so that my ribs are set in place (bye-bye pain, hello freedom and mobility!)
~ My posture has improved dramatically!
~ My postpartum depression has decreased quite a bit. I can tell that being more aligned in my body allows my mental body to flourish!
I could go on and on, but I think you get the picture!
I highly, highly, highly recommend Dr. Derek at One Love Chiropractic. So much so, that I have 3 “Gifts of Health”, which include a FREE consultation with Derek, assessment, x-rays and posture assessments. If you would be interested in one, I would LOVE to pass them along. Please email me through the Contact Form on the site and I will be sure to leave one at the front desk just for you!
So what are you waiting for? Get your family on the right track towards a healthier, happier life. And like Derek says, “When you feel better, you can be more successful!” That’s what I’m clinging to!
