Dr. Derik Sanders

After working as a chef for 8 years in my 20s, I decided to go back to school as I felt something new was calling me. I wanted to find something I was extremely passionate about. After taking a series of personality tests, I found Chiropractic to be a great fit. During my first semester of Anatomy& Physiology, I was blown away by what an amazing creation the human body is!

Growing Up with Chiropractic

I grew up with chiropractic care as an important part of my life. My family went to the chiropractor when we had symptoms, but also when we were completely healthy in order to maintain optimal health. I have witnessed first hand the benefits of chiropractic care throughout my life and I believe it is key to restoring and maintaining health and vitality.

I began practicing in 2006 as an associate with my mentor, Dr. John Bandy, before opening a practice with my father, Dr. Mark Sanders. Today, we continue practicing together in Westlake Hills. I am proficient in a number of chiropractic techniques and have done extensive training in Applied Kinesiology. This allows me to evaluate areas of nervous system stress. I can then support my patients as they recover their health and develop an improved relationship with their bodies. I want to assist as many people as possible to reclaim their health potential. We are all born with Optimal Health as our birthright.

In short, my goal is to educate, empower, and inspire families to realize their full healing potential and live healthy and vibrant lives.

Outside of the Office

In 2019 my wife, daughter and I moved to our 100 year old home in Marble Falls. After extensive renovations, the dust has finally settled and we are enjoying our labor of love. The heart of our home is the kitchen – My wife, Shana, and I love to cook together. We enjoy hosting dinner parties and sharing our love of food with family and friends.I also aspire to incorporate my passion for cooking into my practice by sharing healthy recipes and nutritional support with patients.

Our daughter Jordan keeps our imaginations thriving. We enjoy traveling with her and exploring new and interesting destinations through her eyes. Jordan has always shown interest in my work and is learning so much about the body and wellness through the routine chiropractic adjustments I have given her since birth. At 4 years of age, she is in tune with her body and asks for an adjustment when she feels like something isn’t quite right. I know I made the right career choice when I see how healthy and aligned my daughter is.
