Dr. Steven Johnson, DC

Dr. Steven Johnson has always loved sports and thought he would be working in the strength and conditioning industry to help athletes grow his entire life. It wasn’t until he met a chiropractor and got his first adjustment that he realized the incredible feeling of freedom just a simple adjustment had given him. He became curious as to how he can help others feel what he felt, so he dove into Chiropractic.

4 years later and a proud graduate of Life University ~cum laude~, Dr. Johnson moved to Birmingham to start practicing. After practicing in successful chiropractic clinics for 5 years, he came across an opportunity to buy his mentor’s practice — thus, Legacy Chiropractic and Wellness was born! Ever since, he’s been on a mission to grow and help others achieve the same feeling of freedom he felt.

Apart from work, Dr. Johnson is happily married with a radiant little daughter, constantly keeping him on his toes! Being a die hard Auburn fan, he can’t get enough of some good ol’ fashioned college football. Nevertheless, he loves to read, develop new ways to grow, and play golf!
