David A. Johnson“In my career, I have helped many professional athletes, and it’s been exciting to have the opportunity to help them get back on the field. But my greatest satisfaction comes from helping young athletes and ‘regular people’ who suffer from pain and injuries that have not been helped elsewhere. Knowing I’ve helped someone improve their health and return to their favorite activities is what brings me to the office every day.

“As a third-generation chiropractic physician and now a doctor of physical therapy, I’ve been surrounded by the power of hands-on care for most of my life. My uncle’s enthusiasm really encouraged me to help people recover from injuries and optimize their health in an atmosphere of encouragement and manual therapy. Building on my extensive knowledge is an ongoing passion... one that inspired me to realize the healing possibilities of integrating whole-body rehabilitative care years before others began to understand this powerful approach.”

Shaping the future of rehabilitative care

“Teaching chiropractic physicians and physical therapists continues to fuel my passion for chiropractic care. As a teacher, I’m able to make a positive impact on patients I’ll never even meet.
