Our board-certified and hospital trained Dr. Johnston offers non-invasive diagnoses and treatments for patients of Westport.

Our Osteopathic Clinic serving Westport, CT
At the Osteopathic Wellness Center, our goal is to provide natural, non-invasive treatments to our patients so that they can continue to live their lives free of pain and discomfort. Call us today to schedule an appointment for any injury or if you just simply want to start a balanced, healthy lifestyle.
We don’t believe in using prescription medicine or surgical procedures as treatment. We would rather care for the body with natural supplements and rehabilitation to avoid any ugly side effects. When you have surgery or take prescription medications, it’s like a Band-Aid; it covers up the underlying causes of pain. Dr. Johnston treats those underlying causes instead of covering them up as if they’re not really there.
To avoid any future injuries, we test the body for nutritional issues so that we can attack them and avoid future problems. We want our Westport patients to lead a healthy and happy lifestyle by using natural remedies. Give us a call today to set up an appointment!
We offer our Westport, CT patients:
Westport, CT Osteopathic Treatment for:
We understand that accidents happen all the time and the last thing you would want is to not have full mobility because of them. If you or a loved one has been in an accident, give us a call. At the Osteopathic Wellness Center, we specialize in accident trauma evaluation, diagnosis, and rehabilitation. Dr. Johnston and his team are dedicated to making sure that you regain strength and motion in your body. We will be with you every step of the way, from your first appointment to the rehabilitation stage to weekly or monthly checkups.
A specific technique that we use is myofascial release and lymphatic drainage, which reduces the pain and swelling as result of an injury. Our goal is to minimize scar tissue, pain, swelling, and stress, and maximize mobility and energy of our Westport patients that have suffered from an accident.*
Back Pain & Neck Pain
Back and neck pains are very serious and should be taken care of as soon as possible. These pains can come from several different places, such as long periods of stress, weight issues, heavy lifting, and more. We use specialized osteopathic techniques to treat these problems in a natural and calming way.
Since every patient is different, we would start by using x-rays, scans, and any other tests necessary to determine the exact problem and where it’s coming from. Then, we would use personalized techniques and osteopathic medicine to ensure that our Westport patients can go back to being themselves. Dr. Johnston and his team want their patients to leave the clinic feeling refreshed pain-free!*
Chronic Health Conditions: Lyme, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue…
Many patients that suffer from chronic health conditions like fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue might not know exactly how to treat those diseases. Luckily, Dr. Johnston and his team at the Osteopathic Wellness Center specialize in these and many other chronic health conditions. We understand that these conditions can be uncomfortable and can cause an imbalance in a person’s body, which is why we want to help you as much as we can.
We want each and every one of our Westport patients to live an amazing life full of health and happiness, so we use laboratory testing, scans, natural remedies, and more to lead our patients to that lifestyle.*
Concussions are commonly found in teenagers and adults primarily due to sports injuries. Suffering from several concussions without proper treatment could lead to serious health issues in the future. We want our Westport patients to avoid those long-term side effects so we use osteopathic manipulative treatment to reduce recovery time so you or your loved one can get back out on the field.*
Jaw Issues: Jaw Pain, TMJ, Sleep Apnea…
Jaw problems arise because of dental issues, clicking, blocked airways, and more. At the Osteopathic Wellness Center, we use Advanced Light Force (ALF) methods so that the body can heal on its own without any unnecessary prescription medications or surgeries.
In order to align the jaw and allow proper airflow, we use cranial osteopath and holistic dentistry to release those muscles and joints. If necessary, we will work with your dentist and/or orthodontist in order to get the best results.*
If you live in the Westport, CT area and are experiencing jaw issues and pain such as an overbite, underbite, grinding of the teeth, snoring, or experiencing other sleep-related issues, schedule an appointment with us.
Migraines & Headaches
It’s extremely important to find out the underlying causes of your migraines and headaches instead of taking an ibuprofen and waiting for it to go away. Whether your head pains are coming from stress, anxiety, family history, or any other reasons, Dr. Johnston and his team will figure out the best remedy for you.
He has years of experience and positive experiences with his patients and strives to make you a better you.
Our natural practices can also be applied to sports injuries ranging from ankle sprains to frozen shoulder meniscal problems. We know you love playing the game and we want to get you back out onto the field as quickly as possible.
