Inspiring Conversations with Dr. Deborah Nikolin of Rooted Life Family Chiropractic

Today we’d like to introduce you to Dr. Deborah Nikolin.

Hi Dr. Nikolin, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstory.
I’ve been in practice for eight years. I started my practice right after graduating from chiropractic school, and I joined a multidisciplinary practice with other chiropractors, massage therapists, physical therapists, and acupuncturists. It was a great place for me to start and provided me with so many opportunities to learn! Over the course of six years, I built my practice which evolved into a wellness-based, family practice with a focus on women’s health, pregnancy and postpartum.

When I stepped back and looked at my practice members and my practice as a whole, I realized it was time for me to step away from the multidisciplinary setting and start my own practice. This would allow more comfort for my practice members and a more focused and individualized experience. So in August of 2020 (mid-pandemic!) I opened up Rooted Life Family Chiropractic! It has been the greatest blessing of my life!

We all face challenges, but looking back, would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
It has not been a smooth road. The first four years in practice were the most difficult and stressful years of my life. I was juggling being a master of my craft (chiropractic) while also managing patients and managing a business. We are not taught the financial or business aspect in school. Which, now that I’m in the trenches, I don’t even know that you can teach it. Creating and managing a business is just something that takes experience, grit and faith. Which is something I have developed over time.

Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
Rooted Life Family Chiropractic is a family and wellness-based chiropractic practice. We take care of the entire family and specialize in women’s health, pregnancy, postpartum and pediatric chiropractic care. Being that we specialize in women’s health, we are able to be a part of a woman’s journey from preconception and helping women get pregnant throughout pregnancy and postpartum. And then we get to take care of the baby after birth as well! One thing that makes us unique is that we are able to help women and families throughout this incredible transition.

What I am most proud of is how much fun people have when they come to our office! It is a clean and safe environment. It is peaceful yet uplifting. Every inch of our office is intentional, from the books we keep for people to check out to the music we play and the water we serve. It’s truly a unique experience and that I am so proud of!

Can you share something surprising about yourself?
We also offer an online course for women to help correct and restore their menstrual cycle, identify hormone imbalances and safely get off hormonal birth control. The course is called “Hormone Bootcamp”.
