YOUR CHIROPRACTOR IN WOODSTOCK
Dr. Nick Maassen
Dr. Nicholas Maassen believes in a holistic approach to maintaining balance, vitality, and peak health performance through regular chiropractic adjustments, optimum nutrition, daily exercise, supplementation, essential oils therapy, and eliminating toxins and stress. Dr. Nick’s philosophy when treating patients is that structure = function. When the bones and joints are misaligned, it creates added stress on the body that is often hard to overcome. This creates added stress on the muscles, tendons and ligaments that are attached to those bones and joints. By removing the misalignments, there is less nerve interference, and the body is able to heal itself. When your body’s structure is sound, your function will be optimal thus reducing injury, pain, and ultimately… disease.
My Personal Experience in Chiropractic Care
Dr. Nick was born and raised in Rock Valley, Iowa by his amazing parents alongside six other siblings. His journey in chiropractic started when his older sister had severe complications following a vaccination. After medical evaluation and treatment with medication the family was informed that there was nothing else that could be done, and the effects and damage would be permanent and most likely prevent her from having any more children. After listening to a local chiropractic talk about removing interference to the nervous system and helping the body heal and recover from an overload of toxins Dr. Nick’s family pursued a new type of treatment one that did not focus on the symptoms but one of focusing on strengthening the body and allowing it to heal. Now years later his sister is medication free, free of the symptoms and now has four children. This changed not just his sister’s life but the whole family as they continued to see the benefits of chiropractic transform their families, which eventually lead Dr. Nick to make the decision to move to Marietta, GA and pursue is Doctorate in Chiropractic at Life University.

Dr. Astrid P. Cabrera, D.C., B.S. | Associate Doctor
Dr. Astrid Cabrera was born and raised in Bayamon, Puerto Rico. After completing a Bachelor’s degree in Biology from the University of Puerto Rico, she moved to Atlanta, Georgia where she decided to study Chiropractic at Life University. Growing up, science and performing arts were a great part of her life. She learned that through Chiropractic you could help and heal others using natural routes. As a chiropractor, she combines science and art to remove all subluxations. Her goal is to guide her patients and teach them that good health is not just the absence of symptoms, but the absence of any disease. Since she is from Puerto Rico she knows both English and Spanish giving her the opportunity to help more people of the community.
Dr. Astrid is trained to give care to patients of all ages including pediatric patients and pregnant women since she holds a Webster technique certification. She is also currently working towards achieving the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) certification. The Webster technique is designed to help with the relaxation of the pelvic muscles in pregnant women, so the baby has space to get into a healthy delivery position instead of a breached position. This technique will help as well, with the back pain that many pregnant women suffer because of poor posture and/or their center of gravity shifts. Babies should get adjusted too! By adjusting babies, we remove any interference in their nervous system, avoiding future compensations.
How We Help Our Patients
Patients are often surprised at the number of ways that our chiropractic team at 100% Chiropractic in Woodstock can assist them in feeling and living better. Using the latest treatment methods and keeping abreast of new techniques, we make a personal investment in helping you to live “100%” and relieve pain. We are available to do so much more than help alleviate back and neck pain, although that is a big part of what we do. Did you know that chiropractic adjustments have been shown to improve the symptoms of many annoying conditions that keep you from experiencing the fully active life that you deserve? Regular chiropractic care addresses blockages in your nervous system that can be the cause of a myriad of issues, including:
- Neck, joint, shoulder, & back pain
- Sciatica pain
- Digestive problems
- Sleep issues
- Headaches and migraines
- Metabolic dysfunction
- Immune deficiencies
- Vaccine injury recovery
While sports injuries and accident-related injuries lead many to seek relief from our chiropractors in Woodstock, these patients are apt to continue with routine treatment. After seeing the many benefits that come from a genuinely whole-body approach to health and well-being, the previously skeptical often become 100% enthusiasts. The services that we offer at our office cater to the specific, individualized needs of our patients to relieve pain and help them live a happier, healthier life.
Prenatal and Pediatric Care: Prenatal chiropractic care can help soon to be moms have a more comfortable pregnancy and help her ready her body for the strain of childbirth. Also, we can employ a gentle technique to address common misalignments found in infants, toddlers, and young children.
Personal Injury (Auto Accident): Treating patients after they have experienced a physical trauma requires a particular kind of care. First and foremost, time is of the essence as soft tissue damage in and around your spine, if allowed to heal out of line, can cause chronic ongoing issues. Having the less obvious of spinal injuries assessed soon after an accident is imperative. Acute, and soft tissue injuries often get overlooked without the attention of a chiropractor. We have been uniquely trained to look for these subtle and potentially dangerous misalignments.
Corrective or Reconstructive Care: Many spinal subluxations do not arise from a traumatic injury or accidents. Over time, certain habits, such as posture, heavy lifting, and even workouts can cause recurring issues with your spine, and by extension your entire nervous system. We use corrective care to help bring back the natural curvature of your spine and return order to your nervous system. With a combination of adjustments, exercises, and massage therapy, patients often experience improvements in sleep quality, energy, mood, pain relief, and more.
Why 100% Chiropractic?
At 100% Chiropractic we can provide treatment to all family members, regardless of age or stage of life. A significant portion of our patients and their families engage in regular wellness care. We believe that wellness care, aimed at maintaining a healthy nervous system, through a combination of adjustments, exercises, massage, supplements and informative workshops, offers our patients optimal living. Other patients may only seek our help after they have had an accident or suffered from chronic pain for some time. In either case, the team will perform Discovery assessments on all newcomers and develop individualized treatment plans.

Lacey – Chiropractic Assistant
Hey there it’s nice to meet you! I came into 100% Chiropractic pretty new to the entire chiropractic experience and I am loving it, so far it has been nothing short of amazing! I am the mother to a beautiful 4-year old who keeps me busy while I am not in the office. I was born and raised in Georgia, am a HUGE animal lover, and I am really looking forward to getting to know you better and introduce you to the life-changing experience of chiropractic! Welcome.
Amera – Chiropractic Assistant
I was born and raised in Asheville, NC and just about two years ago I moved out here to Georgia. I realized I wanted to learn more about the better opportunities of a large city and to experience a grander part of life. In my free time I like to read, journal, dog sit, and eventually, I plan to get back into horseback riding. About two years ago I began experiencing migraines often and started to see a neurologist for help. I was prescribed medication, which was absolutely terrible and caused the worst side effects. I got involved with 100% Chiropractic and getting adjusted has gotten rid of my migraines almost completely—if I stay consistent with my adjustments. I love what chiropractic care can do for our bodies and I’m excited to see how it can change other people’s lives!
