Cumming Chiropractor for a Chiropractic Adjustment Appointment

Meet the Doctors

Dr. Colby Smith, D.C.
Dr. Sten Ekberg, D.C.

At Wellness For Life, we believe that each doctor and patient become a team for treating an individual's health issues. Our chiropractors all have similar ways of treating so switching doctors is very seamless. All of the doctors spend a lot of their time listening to understand your concerns, educating, and responding with the best treatment options specifically for you. 

We want our patients to be informed about what the root cause for illness is, because informed patients make better decisions about their health and well being. That is why we've included a video section on this website covering common topics associated with chiropractic care and a lot of other health issues. We also have seminars that cover all topics from pain to high blood pressure to diabetes and more. We offer a lot of different services besides chiropractic, so please check out our service and techniques page.

In this website you'll find information about Wellness For Life Chiropractic, including our location, map, directions, and hours. Please feel free to call us with any questions you have or to request an appointment. We hope you'll find our practice offers the accessibility and personal commitment you look for from a chiropractor.

​Dr. Sten Ekberg constantly stays on top of what is going on in health by constantly learning what the latest technologies and understand of health today. For example Dr. Sten Ekberg took over 85 hours of continuing education in 2015, where most chiropractors take only the minimum 20 hours of required continuing educational per year to keep their licence.

Dr. Sten Ekberg has been freeing people from pain in the clinic in Cumming, GA. As a Chiropractor with experience, Dr. Ekberg is committed to promoting optimal health and well being of patients. Dr. Ekberg believes that the body is an eco-system with a built-in tendency for homeostasis and health. An eco-system cannot be forced into "compliance" which explains why drugs are never a long-term solution. The body will heal itself if the interference is removed and the deficiency is corrected.

Dr. Ekberg was in the Army and is a former NCAA, div 1 champion and Olympic decathlete in track and field who has always been interested in finding better ways to do things. After his athletic career he has devoted the last 25+ years to finding out how to get closer to the potential of the body and mind. He draws on his vast experience in health and performance to help others enhance their health.

Dr. Ekberg uses a "whole person approach". This approach to wellness means looking for underlying causes of any disturbance or disruption (which may or may not be causing symptoms at the time) and make whatever interventions and lifestyle adjustments that would optimize the conditions for normal function. Using this unique approach, Dr. Ekberg is able to help you to accelerate and/or maintain your journey to good health. His mission is to enhance lives by teaching anyone who wants to learn what health really is and how you can take responsibility for the miraculous Mind-Body-Spirit that is YOU.
