By using hands-on techniques, such as gently massaging the muscle and loosening strained joints, Dr. Johnston can help to relax the body and bring it back to its baseline state.* A patient’s individual needs and circumstances will determine what type of care and treatment will be implemented. Through x-rays, scans, and other tests, we are able to determine the proper technique and osteopathic medicine for a patient. Dr. Johnston provides each of his patients with personalized care, high quality treatment, and relief from pain no matter what the condition.*
