Osteopathy is an excellent choice for individuals looking to maintain or restore a healthy life. Our prospective patients might be struggling with an illness, suffering pain from an accident or fall, or have lost strength or mobility; our practices are designed to help restore strength and bodily state.

With careful examination, Dr. Johnston is able to determine the proper technique and osteopathic medicine for a patient through x-rays, scans, and other traditional medical tests. As a patient of Osteopathic Wellness Center, you will receive personalized care, quality treatment, and relief from pain.
