In this holiday season it is important that we reflect back on the year we have had. I am Dr. David A. Johnson and I am the Director of Clinics at North Shore Spinal & Sports Rehabilitation. I believe I speak for all of us when I express my gratitude for the wonderful year we have had at North Shore Spinal & Sports Rehabilitation.
As a multidisciplinary clinic, where chiropractic physicians work side by side with physical therapists and massage therapists in harmony to help our patients, we have accomplished a lot in 2011. Not only have helped hundreds of people regain their health over this last year but we also expanded our staff to include more clinicians to better serve these patients. We have added new clerical staff. We also hired a new director of business development as well as a marketing associate to spread the good word about our clinics.
As the economy slowly crawls out of the recession our clinics have grown and prospered, a fact that I as the director am truly grateful for. I have been blessed with two great professions (chiropractic and physical therapy) which allow have allowed me to build a business which not only provides for 16 employees but has helped thousands of people over the years.
Yet as I celebrate the good things that have happened over this last year, I can’t help but think of the less fortunate who have not found work and can’t afford health care. My prayers go out to these people and as a provider of health care I will continue to try to help those who are financially strapped find ways to pay for services they so desperately need.
As a country we need to do better. With the Iraq war officially over and the war in Afghanistan winding down we need to help our veterans find work. We need to all pull together to help one another find work and share in the prosperity that still exists in this country. As an industry leader in the health care field, North Shore Spinal & Sports Rehabilitation will continue to support local businesses and look for opportunities to grow and add more people to the work force.
Let’s make 2012 better than 2011. Let’s make it the year that we as a country get back to the prosperity we all once had. Let’s recognize that we are all in this world together and we all need to help one another. Let’s live in peace on earth and good will to all mankind. God bless us all.

North Shore, Dr. J and the staff were great. I started out with a pinched cervical nerve which was causing extreme pain and numbness in my arm. Surgery had been ruled out by the neurosurgeon after an MRI. My physical recommended a regimen of physical therapy which I undertook with NorthShore in November. At that time I had consistent pain in the range of 8-9 out of 10. I had trouble sleeping, driving and performing most normal daily activities due to the constant pain. I have now been through two series of physical therapy sessions with North Shore over a couple of months and the pain and numbness are completely gone. Based on my experience I would highly recommend North Shore for physical therapy treatment and the staff is extremely friendly and helpful as a bonus! Jon HeintzelmanJonathan Heintzelman
All aspects of the rehab program were done with professionalism. Intake evaluation, exercise program, massage therapy and exit evaluation were all excellent and yielded excellent results for me. All of the staff are friendly and efficient. Dr. Johnson, Jeannette, Cyprian and Mary are friendly and make an otherwise difficult experience much more tolerable. I have gone to them on two occasions over the last several years for different injuries and, in both instances, my problems were resolved. I highly recommend them.Lee Eddy
I was a patient 6 years ago, with lower back pain and herniation. My PT was excellent and I was back to exercise and resolution of pain and herniation. Recently I have had hip pain and and tingling down my leg. My evaluation with DR Johnson was very thorough and spot on. The PT with Dre was incredible. I am now pain free with a resolution of the tingling as well. I will definitely return for any future problems that may arise!Barbara Bank
