100% Chiropractic – North Colorado Springs
Dr. Brandon Livingood
My name is Dr. Brandon Livingood, yep you read that correctly, my last name is Livingood! Pretty fitting for a chiropractor, huh? My wife Rebecca and I moved here to Colorado Springs, Colorado seven years ago to pursue our passion for chiropractic. Those two handsome devils in the picture below are why we do what we do. Tristan (4 yrs) and Cannon (2 yrs) remind us every day how important health and longevity are. When I’m not playing “diggers and dump trucks,” you’ll find me out on the golf course trying to solve my slice! Rebecca is the true brains behind the scenes. They say behind every strong man is an even stronger woman, boy that couldn’t be more true. After she makes sure everyone else in the family is taken care of she finds time for herself in the yoga studio or curled up with a good book.
With your permission I’d like to help lead you and your family toward your health goals. Let’s face it, every advertisement, health tip, drug ad, doctor’s recommendation or new fad is either moving you towards health, abundance and well being or sickness, misery and decline. It happens no other way. In one of my favorite movies, The Shawshank Redemption, Andy says to Red, “ Get busy living or get busy dying”. As I look around my communities of Northgate, Black Forest, Gleneagle and Monument, I see more of the latter. The current system intended to help extend our lives has now become the leading cause of death in our country. Everyday more and more drugs are sold, screenings are performed and diagnosis are made. Everyday more and more hospital beds fill up, diseases increase and death rates climb. We as a nation take more medication, have more medical interventions and spend more money than any other country in the world; yet our “health rankings” cling near the bottom of the barrel. While there is an absolute time and place for medicine, our focus has become sick care rather than health care. That’s where 100% Chiropractic changes the game.
As a doctor of chiropractic I really don’t fix anything! What I have seen time and time again in my clinics, is when the nervous system, the master controller of everything, works, so does the person. So I invite you to come and meet my exceptional team and let us help you to start Living Life at 100%.
Yours in Health,

What is 100% Chiropractic and What Do We Offer?
Welcome to 100% Chiropractic in North Colorado Springs, Colorado (80921) and meet our chiropractor, Dr. Brandon Livingood. We are glad to see both prospective and current patients. While 100% Chiropractic has many locations nationwide, Dr. Brandon is our professional chiropractor serving North Colorado Springs and the surrounding areas of Northgate, Monument, black Forest, the US Airforce Academy, Briargate, and Gleneagle. We are located down the street from New Life Church, off of Voyager Parkway.
Chiropractic is literally a “hands-on” science requiring the training and clinical experience of the practitioner who forms his or her scientific diagnosis through a blend of testing and observation. Instead of only treating an existing illness or disorder as occurs in general medical practice, our chiropractor seeks to address conditions before they become problems, to help patients arrive at a place of optimal health and wellness.
The primary sources of neck and back pain, as well as headaches, are within the spinal column’s vertebrae when they become misaligned or moved abnormally through injury or problems related to the musculoskeletal structure. This condition, called subluxation, requires skillful spinal and joint adjustments or manipulations to move the misaligned vertebrae back into place. Chiropractors are the only trained healthcare professionals qualified for such procedures.
100% Chiropractic Rehabilitates Patients and Relieves Pain
When a patient visits our chiropractic wellness center in the Northgate area, Dr. Brandon first explains the science behind chiropractic, and then performs an evaluation to help determine what treatment methods would be beneficial. Dr. Brandon will create a customized treatment plan to target and relieve a patient’s pain. At our wellness center, a treatment plan can include corrective exercises, lifestyle advice, nutritional counseling, and massage therapy. These components are typically in addition to the spinal screenings to ensure spinal health.
The corrective exercises we teach patients are specially designed exercises to help correct problems and strengthen the spine and related muscles and connective tissues. Optimal health and wellness usually requires a change in lifestyle, not merely a one-time “fix.” We provide patients with relevant lifestyle advice on harmful habits to avoid, and constructive habits to create and maintain to help patients reach a position of wellness in their life. Nutritional counseling is also an important element in reducing pain and healthy living. Dr. Brandon teaches patients about real nutrition with a structured plan incorporating healthy foods, vitamins, and supplements, for lasting results.
While most people may think of massage therapy as a luxury, it is actually a beneficial form of muscular therapy that addresses specific conditions and injuries. Back pain, neck pain and other patient pain issues respond well to a combination of spinal adjustments and massage therapy. Patients can schedule a massage appointment on any of five days out of the week. Like other types of screenings, our posture and spinal screenings provide clues to underlying problems and help us design wellness programs to address those problems.
Patients living in North Colorado Springs, Colorado (80921) and the surrounding towns of Monument, Northgate, Black Forest, Briargate, and Gleneagle, are encouraged to contact Dr. Brandon at 719-867-3007 to set up an appointment. Seek wellness today for a healthier future tomorrow!

Meet our dedicated staff!
Dr. Ryan could not be more excited to be back in the Colorado Springs community, joining the team of wellness experts behind 100% Chiropractic!
Growing up in central North Dakota, Dr. Ryan went to college at North Dakota State University (Go Bison!) participating in NCAA Division 1 wrestling and ROTC, graduating with a B.S. in Dietetics in 2006. Having been an enlisted member of the North Dakota National Guard since 2000, Dr. Ryan decided to join active duty, and took a commission as a Medical Operations Officer for a Combined Arms Battalion in 2nd BDE/4th ID in Fort Carson, CO. Charged with the medical readiness of a thousand man battalion, especially while deployed to Iraq from 2008-2009, he became disenchanted with the methods that were employed to help serve Soldiers; he desired a more effective healthcare model where he could be more directly involved. Dr. Ryan’s search for a more “hands on” approach led him to explore Chiropractic care. It was during this period of time that he met Dr. Brandon Livingood, who introduced him to 100% Chiropractic’s founder Dr. Jason Helfrich. This chance meeting led to a Chiropractic education at Life University, the leading Chiropractic College in the world.
It was also during this period of time that Dr. Ryan met Kelsey, a Minnesota born world traveler that would become his wife. Kelsey, a holistic wellness coach and nutrition advisor, reluctantly left Colorado to join Dr. Ryan at Life University in Marietta, GA, where she received her advanced degree in Sports Nutrition. Dr. Ryan and Kelsey have a joint passion for neglected animals and have volunteered many hours helping rescue projects and fostering shelter animals. They have become foster failures two times over with their half-husky lab, Bentley and half-duck tolling retriever, Tenzing. Kelsey has a massive passion for traveling and scuba diving, having traveled to over 30 different countries in 6 continents, diving in many of them.
During Chiropractic school Dr. Ryan became heavily involved in the wrestling and Crossfit community coaching at Life University’s brand new NAIA wrestling team and Crossfit Kennesaw. Dr. Ryan’s enthusiasm for athletics led him to receive multiple certifications in movement assessment, training and kinesio-taping, as well as a Master’s in Science degree in Sports Health Science. Dr. Ryan is absolutely thrilled to be joining Dr. Brandon, another college wrestler at his North Colorado Springs 100% Chiropractic office. Their joint expertise in Chiropractic, the military, athletics, family and individual wellness will continue to galvanize change in how people see their health and their phenomenal capacity to heal.

100% Testimonials, North Colorado Springs, CO
I first attended one of Dr. Brandon’s seminars to hear more about feeling energized. I was shocked to find out that he was a chiropractor. Being open-minded and agreeing with a lot of things that he and my ND both have said, I decided to take a look at his practice. I was nervous due to my preconceived notions and prior back surgery, but there have been lots of great changes. My energy level is up, tension is down, and I’m sleeping better. The adjustments have also eliminated my upset stomach so much that I no longer take the medication! That in itself was worth it. Many thanks to the entire staff at 100%. –Bradley F
Since I have been under chiropractic care, I have noticed a good difference in the stiffness of my upper back and neck. I was born with tortacolis and it has caused problems in this area my whole life! I also used to get a headache at least once a week and that has reduced to almost nothing. I am so excited, now, about growing older and still functioning at 100%. –Kristen S
Thank you Dr. Brandon for your assistance bringing my health into better alignment this last year. The reason I sought out chiropractic care last fall, was due to the fact I was experiencing high pressures in my eyes, or as I was told early signs of Glaucoma. This did not seem right to me due to no family history, overall good health and only being in my mid 40’s. After 2 more checks and with 3 different eye physicians, the verdict still showed high pressures. (28 and 32 and normal is 16 to 19) Frustrated and not wanting to take eye drops that were prescribed to me for the rest of my life, I gave 100% a call. Following my initial exam I found that my neck was rather misaligned which very well could be causing problems with the eyes. After a year of treatment, I was re evaluated by Dr Brandon, and the treatment has been very successful in bringing my neck closer to the natural curve in how God designed my body. At this point I felt the need to get my eyes retested, and believe it or not the pressures were both now in the normal range!! My eye physician was surprised but shared that I no longer needed eye drops as well! I am definitely a believer in chiropractic care, and feel blessed to be a part of the 100% Chiropractic group! –Tim C
I have completely enjoyed working with Dr Brandon and 100% Chiropractic. The staff and their personalities make every visit a fun one. When I started coming to 100% I had a lot of neck and lower back pain and now the pain is all but gone. I even look younger! – OK maybe that’s a stretch, but I certainly feel that way. I really appreciate how fast I can get in and out of the office without feeling like they have rushed me. The service is always fantastic and everyone seems very organized. I run at a fast pace and good to have a Doctor that does too. I will recommend 100% Chiropractic to all my friends. You guys are GREAT! –Alan W
Trek was born with a metabolic disorder called Pseudohypoaldosternoism. This causes his kidneys to reject the hormone aldosterone, causing his body to not maintain normal sodium levels. Through the last 7 years we have tackled all the problems that come with this disorder. Because Trek had no muscle development in the first few months of life we have and are still dealing with the effects. Ever since his release from the hospital Trek has had physical, occupational, and speech therapies. He has progressed well through all of this but there has remained one underlying problem that has troubled his physical life and with age has upset his psychological life as well. Trek has always been horribly constipated. Since he was slow to develop abdominal strength he developed an enlarged colon that allows build ups that become almost impossible to pass. With this daily discomfort and the incredible pain he would experience when he would eventually go to the bathroom, sometimes lasting up to an hour, it was clear we had a big problem. I exhausted every source I knew of to help my son. He’s had many tests and taken many medications. The laxatives would work, but for a small child it was impossible for him to control it and he was having accidents. This problem was interfering with school and his progress there. I was desperate to help him. I was introduced to 100% Chiropractic a little over a year ago. I had never seen a chiropractor but was curious. I did some research and decided it couldn’t hurt. After the first few visits Trek came out of the bathroom one day and exclaimed, “Mommy, Mommy! My poop didn’t hurt!” It may sound funny but this made me cry with absolute relief. Dr. Brandon has changed Trek’s world and our family’s. The chiropractic care Trek receives has awakened the nerves at the end of his colon so that he can feel it when he needs to “go”. It doesn’t build up anymore. Trek no longer has to self stimulate and leads more of a normal 1st grade life. I have actually seen Trek leave the chiropractic table and go straight to the bathroom. We all still wait for him but now we wait 5 minutes not an hour. My son is happy and pain free and how can a mother possibly thank someone enough for that. Thank you Dr. Brandon and everyone at 100%! Our lives are changed forever! –T Martin
