Chiropractors are plentiful in the Asheville area, but they are not all created equal. For the very best in whole family chiropractic care, no one beats Dr. Derek Kasten at One Love Chiropractic.
Specializing and certified in Pediatric and Prenatal Chiropractic Care, Dr. Derek is passionate about family wellness and enjoys working with families seeking something more than the mainstream healthcare model.
After seeing his first child experience traumatic birth and subsequent health issues, Dr. Derek became concerned with the health and well-being of children. “My concern is that there are too many kids suffering from preventable chronic dis-ease, and to me, that is NOT acceptable,” Dr. Derek said. “Furthermore, too many of these children are given medication to cover up their symptoms.“
Treating symptoms is not a focus of chiropractic care. Dr. Derek believes in getting to the core of each person’s health and vitality, rather than focusing on disease or imbalance. “I am looking for the cause and prevention of dis-ease and have no intention on labeling a condition or treating symptoms,” he said.
“At One Love Chiropractic our goal is to set every family on the path toward wellness,” Dr. Derek said. By focusing on some of the challenging issues families need to tackle, he can help families keep the bigger picture in mind – wellness for life. “We specialize in childhood neurodevelopmental disorders, and have years of experience helping children and families find hope and healing.”
Dr. Derek is certified by the International Chiropractic Pediatrics Association (ICPA). He specializes in caring for children and families struggling to cope with serious challenges, such as:
“If a child suffers from one of these conditions, their neurology is in a state of protection and imbalance,” Dr. Derek said. “Chiropractors are essentially functional neurologists. I can help your child’s central nervous system to find balance, and can help to restore it to a normal state so they can start healing again.”
Helping his first child overcome health challenges kindled Dr. Derek’s passion for helping children attain and sustain health and balance. “I am a parent of three young children,” he said. “My first suffered from colic and constipation after a very traumatic birth. She was also diagnosed with Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) when she was less than a year old. Because I was challenged with my daughter and now have two more children, I want the very best for them.”
Dr. Derek’s mission to make children healthy doesn’t stop with his own. “I am still learning and I will not stop trying to be a better parent and husband. I also see so many children who had to suffer like my daughter, and I will do everything in my power to prevent her scenario from happening to others, and to care for every child that needs my help, just like they are my own. I care too damn much.“
Wellness always begins from the child’s point of view. “At One Love Chiropractic, our primary goal is to put ourselves in the shoes of each child with a chronic issue, and help them compassionately,” Dr. Derek said.
In addition to children’s care, Dr. Derek specializes in Pre-Natal Chiropractic Care. Chiropractic care for pregnant women has so many advantages. “There’s no better time than right now to begin caring for yourself and your family,” he said.
Dr. Derek is certified by the ICPA in the Webster Technique for adjusting pregnant women. Chiropractic care during pregnancy is proven to help prevent:
Well-adjusted Moms report feeling better, staying healthy, and experiencing easier and even shorter labors. “And we know it can help with the baby being in the correct position in the uterus at delivery time.”
You don’t need to be a child or an expecting mother to benefit from Dr. Derek’’s services. He also specializes in treatment of athletes with sports injuries. As a former professional and college soccer player, Dr. Derek understands the drive and passion that goes into the love of the game. “Unfortunately, sports injuries are a part of the game, and if you are anything like me, a speedy recovery is a must,” Dr. Derek said.
“The most common areas of injury are the ankles, knees, shoulders, elbows and the spine. “With an injury, the alignment and biomechanics of the spine and body can easily be altered, which results in weakness, instability and an inability to heal quickly and correctly.”
At One Love Chiropractic the goal is to bring your body back into balance. “We make sure everything is in proper alignment and moving optimally so that healing, strength and full recovery can take place as easily and as quickly as possible.”
Sometimes just the stress of daily life can put you out of balance and on the road to dis-ease. Don’t wait until you are injured. Find out today how chiropractic can help you. Contact One Love Chiropractic today.
