Chiropractic is a healthcare discipline that uses specific spinal manipulations to help the body heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery.
Dr. Johnson has been specially trained to examine his patients for spinal misalignments also known as subluxations. If he should find a subluxation he would use safe and effective chiropractic adjustments to restore your body and remove interference in your nervous system.
Chiropractic is extremely safe and effective. Dr. Johnson uses non-invasive, drug-free adjustments meaning that the risks associated with his approach are very low. Dr. Johnson assesses each patient individually before starting care to ensure their safety.
Chiropractic adjustments generally involve a high velocity, low amplitude thrust applied to a specific vertebra. However, Dr. Johnson has been highly trained in many different chiropractic techniques so he will apply the best adjustment style based on each individual patient.
As you can see in the chart, Dr. Johnson was required to complete a MINIMUM of 4,485 hours of education for his chiropractic college degree. This does not include any of the additional hundreds upon thousands of extra hours spent in specialized training, continuing education, adjustment technique intensives, etc. Chiropractors undergo intensive and extensive study in assessment, diagnosis and management of patients. They are also required to pass national exams and belong to regulating bodies where they reside and practice.
Once your care action plan has been completed, Dr. Johnson will reevaluate your health and progress. A wellness lifestyle plan of maintenance is usually the next step. It is important to maintain your health progress by regular visits and chiropractic adjustments. This will ensure your spine is in proper working order rather than waiting for problems to arise and pain to begin all over again.
Regular chiropractic adjustments, plenty of exercise, proper nutrition and plenty of rest will result in optimum health for you and your family.
