A Personal Testimony

Alexis and Kovu

amberwood terrace chiropractic elkhart indianaAt a year old, Kovu Lankford was still not sleeping more than a couple hours at a time. His sleep-deprived mom, Alexis, began to wonder if there was something more she could do to help him sleep.

Alexis had already tried all the tips and tricks- nightly routines, early bedtime, late bedtime, rocking, crying it out, etc. She even gave him extra snacks before bed just in case it was hunger waking him up. Nothing she tried made any difference in his sleeping habits.

Shortly after Kovu turned one, she considered having him adjusted at Amberwood Terrace. She’s been a patient of Dr. Derrick’s for several years. She knew firsthand that he and his staff at Amberwood Terrace are concerned with overall health, and are knowledgeable in natural remedies.

Having never had Kovu adjusted before, she felt some trepidation. She did her own research and also consulted with Dr. Derrick about the safety of chiropractic adjustments on such a young child. Alexis learned that adjustments on a child are more gentle than adult adjustments, and that they are perfectly safe. She decided to set an appointment for her baby boy.

Dr. Derrick did a thorough examination and found that Kovu had a severe misalignment in his upper neck. He also took note of the asymmetrical distortion of Kovu’s skull. He began the adjustments by focusing on these two issues.

As a result of just a couple of months of chiropractic care, Kovu’s sleeping habits have improved immensely! He’s sleeping deeper and longer than he ever has before. As a bonus, Dr. Derrick was able to correct Kovu’s head tilt as well.

Alexis and Kovu are incredibly grateful for Dr. Derrick and his staff at Amberwood Terrace Chiropractic. Alexis says,

“I really appreciate ATC and the staff for truly caring about their patients, including my son and I. They have impacted our health for the better.”

As a member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA), Dr. Derrick loves helping patients of all ages. He feels privileged to have had the opportunity to adjust patients as young as a newborn and as seasoned as a 99 year old. His goal is to be part of the century club by someday having the opportunity to adjust a 100 year old. As Alexis can attest, chiropractic care is safe for all ages!
