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 chiropractors seek 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 to move the misaligned vertebrae back into place. Chiropractors are the only trained healthcare professionals qualified for such procedures.
When a patient visits our chiropractic wellness center, Drs. Steve and Vanessa first explain the science behind chiropractic, and then perform an evaluation to help determine what treatment methods would be beneficial. Our Buford chiropractors 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.
When a patient is suffering pain it is hard to enjoy life to the fullest. As chiropractors, Drs. Steve and Vanessa are experts at using non-invasive treatment to relieve pain so that you can enjoy life at 100%. Chiropractic care and massage are drug-free treatment options for a variety of conditions including back pain, allergies, headaches, stress, and pain from sports or auto accident injuries.

I came to 100% after talking to Dr. Steve at our local Crossfit. I used to be an avid runner, I actually met my husband through running, I would run 10K’s, 15K’s, half marathons and even marathons. I loved to run but a couple years ago I was diagnosed with a bulging disc in my lower back. It not only gave me chronic pain throughout my day but I was no longer able to run more than ½ mile before experiencing severe pain and discomfort. I had just started working on my fitness and trying a new routine at Crossfit when Dr. Steve and 100% offered help and an opportunity to get back to what I love. After two month of working on my spine and committing to get my body functioning better I was able to run a half marathon with absolutely no pain or bulging disc symptoms. Not only have I been able to get back to running but I am in the best shape of my life! I am able to lift weights, do Crossfit and work out harder than I ever have before. 100% Chiropractic gave me my life back!! -April B.
100% has changed my life. Thanks to the amazing Doctors here my headaches have been almost eradicated, and when I do experience one it is a fraction of the intensity that it used to be. I have more energy, I sleep better and I am able to enjoy my life more. -Katie S.
I came to 100% after I was in a Car accident. I was having lower back pain, neck pain and shoulder pain when I first went to the office. They took care of everything and really made the process easy, which allowed me to focus on getting better. Choosing 100% Chiropractic after my accident was one of the best decisions I have made. My lower back and neck pain was keeping me from enjoying time with my family. I had a hard time sleeping and the pain I was feeling affected my everyday life. Thanks to Dr. Steve and Dr. Vanessa for helping me get back to where I was before my accident and more! I feel 200% better, I am sleeping better, have more energy and I feel more informed on how to live a better, healthier life. –Corina S.
I was having terrible low back pain and tightness throughout my back every night. I am on my feet all day as a stylist and the pain and tightness I was feeling was affecting everything I did. Since starting care with 100% I have very rare back pain, only after extremely long days at work, and it is much less painful than even my best days before. I no longer get that breath catching lower back pain. This allows me to move around during work, exercise without having to favor my low back and I no longer feel the need to try and “pop” my neck or back on my own. -Allie R.
I came to 100% and Dr. Steve because I was having a slight numbness in my right shoulder. I didn’t have any other symptoms and really wanted to go for general wellness of my body. Since starting care with 100% my shoulder is no longer an issue and I continue to have no other symptoms. I have been going to a chiropractor for about 4 years. The chiropractor I was seeing before retired and I was fortunate enough to meet Dr. Steve. I was impressed with his passion and commitment to his patients. After my first visit I was more than satisfied with both Dr. Steve and Dr. Vanessa. They are very knowledgeable and passionate about helping me feel better and function at my best. I actually get excited to come to 100% to get my adjustments and look forward to every visit to the office. Thanks Dr. Steve and Dr. Vanessa, you both are great! -Keith K.
I went to 100% because I was having some back pain, shoulder pain and a little neck pain. I play ice hockey and it can be a little rough at times, so that I know contributed to the symptoms I was feeling. The results I have had at 100% have been amazing, since getting my regular adjustments I have absolutely no neck or back pain and my shoulder has felt drastically better. 100% was has been my first experience with chiropractic care, and I cannot be happier. The have proved to be professional and knowledgeable in their care while at the same time providing an inviting office experience. Best of all, I have experienced none of the nagging problems that I had prior to the start of my care in this office! -Dan W.
I honestly only started care because my wife decided she was going to start going and wanted me to try it with her. Before starting care I had occasional knee pain and some stiffness in my neck. I really loved the teaching aspect that Dr. Steve brought to my care. Learning everything that we did really opened my eyes to potential symptoms I had no idea were related to my spine and were areas that chiropractic care could help me with. I have seen improvements with my asthma, neck stiffness, performance during workouts and my general health. -Alex P.
I starting my care at 100% because I was getting headaches and had hip pain. Since I started to improve my spinal health, I no longer get headaches! I can tell such a difference in my ability to recover faster after working out, I am more aware of what my symptoms may be pointing to as a root cause in order to take steps to correct it. Without having headaches every day my life has improved greatly and I can enjoy my family. -Amanda P.
I came to 100% because I heard Dr. Steve speak to a group about how chiropractic care is for general health and wellness and not just a way to get rid of back pain. I was intrigued by what he said and decided to see if chiropractic was something that could help me stay healthy. I didn’t have any complaints when I initially came in, but now I have a new normal. It is so awesome to feel, I have noticed lots of improvements in my day to day, athletic performance and recovery. I am a fire fighter so my physical performance can mean life or death and now that I have experienced chiropractic, I will always get my spine checked from here on out! -Jeff D.
If it wasn’t for Dr. Steve, I have no clue what I would do or where I would be. Meaning, my everyday work as a personal banker would leave me near tears just about every single day because of the pain I was having. The constant twisting and standing was extremely hard on my body. Now under treatment at 100%, I feel that I am getting my life back and not letting my life pass me by. The pain no longer controls me, I control it (with DR. Steve’s help). -Chonda M.
I used to take pain medication every day for headaches or back pain. I am a dental hygienist and because of my job I get in some pretty uncomfortable positions throughout my day. I have been able to stop taking pain meds thanks to the care I have received at 100%. I also can’t say enough about the personal attention I get at the office. Any time I have an issue, my foot, hand, shoulder, neck or lower back, Dr. Steve will make sure everything is where it should be and actually listens to my concerns. He is able to fix any issues I have. I didn’t realize the pain I was living with until it was gone. I love Dr. Steve! -Alex E.
I have wanted to seek help for my back pain for years but I have always put it off. I finally came in to 100% after meeting Dr. Steve at a teacher appreciation day at my school after struggling through a week of painful immobility. I had been feeling paralyzed! I had sharp and nearly constant pain in my neck, shoulders and down to my hips. I frequently lost feeling in my hands or feet. I had trouble sleeping and could not turn my head at all. After some intense care I quickly began to see and feel the results. My spine, which was a mess, began to hold the correct curves and posture. Now after 24 visits I’m more relaxed and not constantly fighting pain. I can be on my feet comfortably all day and I can get through a full workout. The visits are always pleasant. My kids love coming with me and my son pretends to be a chiropractor all the time and give mommy “adjustments.” I’m so glad that I started coming and taking care of myself. I can’t imagine living life in pain again like I did for years. I’m never going back to that! Life is definitely better at 100%. -Caitlin R.
My name is Suzette and I have been with 100% Chiropractic for over a year. I love seeing the impact that chiropractic has on all of our practice members every day. It is exciting to see the results of letting one’s own body do what it was made to do! I look forward daily to meeting new patients and introducing them to chiropractic. I have seen great results with not only our practice members, but also for myself and my family!
Hi my name is Jalisa! I joined the 100% team in early April so you can say I’m the new kid on the block! I truly love being a component of a practice that strives to see people’s lives changed in all aspects for better. I am a peppy individual who enjoys nothing more than cheering others on to their own victories in life. I take joy in teaching those that come in more about what is going on in their body. When I see that “Aha!” look in their eyes I know they have started to fully understand why chiropractic care is essential to their health. My purpose and goal is to show you that you shouldn’t accept living life at less than 100%!!!
