"My ten year old son had been on ADHD meds since he was four years old. These med had many unwanted side effects. A) He had no appetite and no desire to eat. B) It was war at night to get him to bed. These meds wore off around 4:00pm each day and he'd be twice as hyper as normal because the 'balance' was tipped even further in his little brain. C) He had severe mood swings: he'd be happy, then angry, then sad all in a matter of minutes. These swings caused him to talk about suicide which led me to McKennan Behavioral--he was there for 6 days; at least now he's med-free.
Dr. Nikki readily bonded with my son. Her patience with him was very genuine and natural. We've had a family chiropractor for years, yet Dr. Nikki's full spectrum of care, nutrition and exercise is something I hadn't heard much about.
My son is a work in progress. I see small changes every day. His quite literal addiction to sugar has definitely decreased. He used to get into my brown sugar container and eat all the "lumps." His behavior, I feel, will continue to improve as his care continues.
If a person is thinking about care with Dr. Nikki, I say...'Quit thinking about it and DO IT.' There's nothing to be lost and everything to be gained. The drug companies that hold America hostage with never ending drug therapies know that Chiropractic is the best kept secret. With Dr. Nikki's help there are no drug induced side effects, no large purchases at the pharmacy, and one-on-one care as is you are a person and not a chart number."
"Dr. Nikki is always cheerful, and pleasant. She takes wonderful care of me and more importantly my family. I recently had my young son in for an adjustment. He is always happy to get an adjustment, and never minds when we go."
"I will never go to another chiropractor again. Dr. Nikki is the best...great service and great price. Best of all I always feel 100% better and have the best night sleep afterwards."
"Dr. Nikki is wonderful! She does a great job making sure you are fully adjusted and feeling well again. She is also very good with kids! My three year old really enjoyed her first visit."
"I've been going to Chiropractors for years and Dr. Nikki has made me feel much better. I try to get in for adjustments at least once a month. I always feel like a new person after my adjustments."
Fit For Life Chiropractic provides affordable care so that you and your family can get the Chiropractic care you need. We practice principled, traditional Chiropractic.
What does that mean? Each person has the POWER within them to heal naturally and all the Chiropractor needs to do is remove the interference so that you can heal. It's really that simple.
When Chiropractic was developed in the late 1800s, the intention was to provide affordable care with easy access for the entire family. That's exactly what we created with Fit For Life Chiropractic. A place where the whole family can come to get quality Chiropractic care without breaking the bank.
We also understand that along with a properly functioning nervous system, you need to have adequate exercise and healthy nutrition. Dr. Nikki's goal is to help people get their health back so they can enjoy active lives with their families.
I grew up in Garretson, SD where I was active in multiple sports. Being active meant many bumps, bruises, and falls over the years, but there was one incident that acted as the tipping point in leading me to chiropractic. After a minor car accident on one wintery night with icy roads, I started having frequent headaches. I went to a local Chiropractor and started getting adjusted on a more regular basis. During this time of Chiropractic care, not only did my headaches clear up, but I also noticed many other symptoms disappear such as allergies, sinus problems, and fatigue.
Because of my wonderful experience with Chiropractic care, I started to read and explore the profession and its philosophy, science, and art. I loved the holistic, natural, and vitalistic approach that Chiropractors use. The philosophy resonated with me so much that I decided to go to Chiropractic college. I attended Augustana College in Sioux Falls graduating with a Bachelor’s in Biology, and then obtained my Doctorate in Chiropractic from Palmer College.
Throughout school I had extensive training in wellness specifically as it deals with lifestyle choices related to nutrition, exercise, and the mind-body connection. I also have a passion for working with families, particularly children. If you are wondering how chiropractic can help children it will interest you to know that Chiropractic is actually the fastest growing holistic form of healthcare in the world and is very safe and effective for childhood conditions such as ear infections, unexplained crying, growing pains, headaches, ADHD, allergies and much more.
I would love nothing more than to support your family in living a healthier life. If you, or someone you know, would like to learn more about how chiropractic can help you and your children please give us a call at 605-254-7735. We look forward to hearing from you!
