Savy Irby Chiropractor

Dr. Savannah (Savy) Irby Ford

Dr. Savy Ford graduated with honors from Life University in Atlanta, GA, where she received her Doctor of Chiropractic degree.  She completed her undergraduate studies at Florida State University and received a Bachelor of Science degree in Business and Marketing. While pursuing her chiropractic studies, Dr. Savy focused her elective studies on pediatrics, pregnancy, and family care, with the goal of one-day promoting wellness for the entire family.  That goal has germinated and ’blossomed’ into the creation of the Blossom Family Chiropractic practice.

Dr. Savy is a native of the Tampa bay area, and grew up in Brandon, FL.  While in her early 20’s, after suffering with debilitating migraines for years, she sought the help of a Chiropractor. After only a few weeks of chiropractic care, her migraines completely disappeared; that life altering change spurred her passion for chiropractic care and natural healing.

Dr. Savy has received extensive advanced training in the management of infants, children, and pre-natal and postpartum women through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA).  She is also certified in the Webster Intrauterine Constraint Technique and is working toward the completion of her Diplomate in Pediatrics and Pregnancy through the ICPA.

In addition to managing her Chiropractic clinical practice, Dr. Savy is an established speaker, and presents wellness concepts through various networks, businesses, churches, and health and wellness events. Her goal is to educate the St. Pete community about health topics so that residents develop a true understanding of how to live a happy and healthy life.

Dr. Savy is passionate about serving families in the St. Petersburg community. In her spare time, she loves spending time with her husband, Lucas, enjoying outdoor activities, and traveling.
