Chiropractor Concord NC Scott Saario Meet The Team
Chiropractic Physician & Clinic Director

Dr. Scott Saario

I consider it a great blessing and immense responsibility to serve Cabarrus County as a Chiropractic Physician. As the Clinic Director of ChiroCabarrus I have made it our mission to make this community a healthier and better place to live.

I was raised in Silverdale, WA which is a small city near Seattle.

Growing up in a close knit town helped me to realize how important it is to contribute and serve your community. After high school I relocated to Temple Terrace, FL where I attended a small Christian college for two years. After graduating with my Associate of Arts degree, I continued my education focusing on biology and received my Bachelor of Science degree from the University of the State of New York. Moved to help others, I pursued a career in health care and graduated Cum Laude from Palmer College of Chiropractic in 2009.

It is now my purpose and passion to serve as many suffering and unwell people as I can. It’s not an easy task, but it is our mission to change the physical, relational and spiritual health of our community through holistic medicine, health education, community service, philanthropic outreach and prayer.

ChiroCabarrus is determined to be a strong influence for positive change not only for our patients but for our entire community. The health of a community is a reflection of its citizens and it is important to me to do whatever it takes to make this a strong and healthy place to work and live.

My love of athletic competition has motivated me to accumulate extensive post graduate experience in the study of human movement science and biomechanical analytics. Specializing in sports biomechanics is a true passion of mine, not only to help athletes avoid injuries but in helping them to reach levels of performance that would otherwise be unattainable.

In my personal time, I love spending time with my wife Melissa and my three boys, Liam, Oliver and Griffin who make me realize how truly blessed I am. I also focus on teaching and serving in our local church and enjoy CrossFit competition and coaching.

Chiropractor Concord NC Dr. Gonzales Meet The Team
Chiropractic Physician

Dr. Gonzales

I grew up in upstate New York eventually making my way to Illinois where I was involved in weightlifting, football, and wrestling. Living such an active lifestyle, I became passionate about seeking opportunities that would support this while helping others meet their own goals. My education began at Florida for biology.

I then graduated summa cum laude from Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville with a bachelor's degree in Exercise Science. From there, I attended Logan College of Chiropractic in St. Louis obtaining a Doctorate of Chiropractic with honors.

I am passionate about making a pain-free day a reality for my patients and getting them back to what they love doing most. I do this by using a multimodal patient-centered approach that utilizes chiropractic manipulation, dry needling, rehabilitative exercises, sports performance, and nutritional advice.

With an extensive background in weight lifting, exercise, and performance, I am eager to work with athletes and those that need to remain active for their lifestyle. My background in health and wellness has helped me successfully treat neck and back complaints, headaches, disc-related injuries, sciatic issues, frozen shoulder, plantar fasciitis, and many other sports-related injuries.

As an avid outdoorsman, my hobbies include hunting, hiking, rock climbing, and water sports. When I'm not in the office or enjoying the great outdoors, I love to attend mens bible study, watch movies, listen to podcasts, and spend time with my beautiful wife Kaitlin, son Maximus, and dog Boomer. I'm excited to have the opportunity to provide high-quality care to Concord and the surrounding areas.

Chiropractic Concord NC Melissa Saario Meet The Team
Practice Manager

Melissa Saario

I was born and raised in the Midwest and grew up seeing and appreciating the benefits of chiropractic. With my late grandfather and father as chiropractors, I have been able to witness the amazing capabilities of the human body and its natural recuperative abilities. Following high school I studied in Tampa, FL where I met Scott at Florida College.

I continued my education at Daytona State College and completed my nursing degree. I have worked for several years in the Neuro-Intensive Care Unit with Carolinas Medical Center's main campus and for Novant Health staffing all the Intensive Care Units in three different locations. Throughout my nursing career I have seen the devastation of chronic disease due to a lack of health maintenance. Our desire to make Cabarrus County a healthier place motivated us to open this clinic and it is our mission to provide a place in this community for people to heal and pursue health. Outside of our practice, I home school my three boys and tutor a weekly homeschool co-op class. I love running and CrossFit. My faith in Jesus Christ is the basis for all my activities.

Certified Chiropractic Assistant


I am originally from the Midwest and moved here with my husband and now teenage daughter in 2008. I spent my professional career in advertising, but made the transition to health care in 2022.

Chiropractic Concord NC Heather
Certified Chiropractic Assistant


Moving from Northeast Ohio to Charlotte in 2016, with my husband and 2 children, was an exciting change for all of us. I spent my entire life in the cloudy and cold rust-belt, and am loving the warm sunny days and short winters we have found here in our new home. I have been enjoying the benefits of Chiropractic care for many years.

Even back in Ohio, I always found that I felt my best when visits to my Chiropractor were part of my routine. I never thought that I would get to be a part of it.

I had been coming to ChiroCabarrus for a couple of years in 2020 when I was in for an adjustment, dr. scott & melissa mentioned that they were looking for a chiropractic assistant for the office. They did not know that I was previously a medical assistant in Ohio, and I told them I would be interested in joining their team. They loved the idea too, and so I earned my NC chiropractic certifications, and I am loving being a part of the team at ChiroCabarrus who gets to help patients every day. There's just nothing better than being a part of helping someone feel better! One of the best things about working at ChiroCabarrus is how Scott and Melissa genuinely care for their patients and their employees. Their values are my values, and it's so refreshing to be so in sync. It's a perfect fit. These days I split time in the office as a chiropractic assistant, and also the office manager. The work is fast-paced, and I like that

In my spare time, we volunteer often at my local church. I also love riding my horse Topper, and doing some shows on the weekends. I have also started classes in martial arts, which is hard, but also fun!
