Our Osteopathic Clinic serving Wingdale, NY
The Osteopathic Wellness Center is committed to keeping our Wingdale patients at the center of all of our treatments. That means all of our techniques are designed to keep you feeling comfortable and safe at all times. Our osteopathic manipulative treatments are non-invasive and healthy alternatives to other methods, all with the same purpose of helping you achieve a healthy wellbeing.
One of our central techniques involves hands-on treatments, which are highly effective in caring for injuries to the body, as well as other illnesses. Surgeries and some pharmaceutical approaches to healing can result in undesired side effects and long recoveries. Instead, Dr. Johnston applies holistic care and natural supplements to encourage the body to heal on its own.
Through the use of nutritional tests, we are able to better understand the specific situation and condition for each of our Wingdale patients. Every person is unique, and we strive to make our treatments as tailored as possible. We believe everyone should be able to enjoy an active and healthy lifestyle, and our treatments are designed to give that back to you.*
