Meet Dr. Gary Johnson

Chiropractic wasn’t Dr. Gary Johnson’s first choice of careers. He started as a pre-med student at Oklahoma Christian University in Oklahoma City in 1989 and then continued on to the University of Kansas School of Pharmacy.

However, the traditional medical model of medication and surgery didn’t sit right with him. Passionate about providing patients with conservative, non-invasive and non-surgical options to optimize health, he made a career change and enrolled at Parker University in Dallas. There, he earned his Doctor of Chiropractic degree in 1998.

An Extensive Postgraduate Education

Providing patients with the best care possible is Dr. Johnson’s goal, and he continues to pursue advanced training and education in chiropractic adjusting techniques, adjunctive services and diagnostics, including:

  • Diversified Technique
  • Chiropractic BioPhysics®
  • Activator Methods®
  • Applied Kinesiology
  • Motion Palpation
  • Extremity Adjusting
  • Physiotherapy
  • Spinal Rehabilitation
  • Nutritional Supplementation
  • Gait and Spinal Curve Retraining
  • Myofascial Dysfunction and Trigger Point Therapy
  • Diagnostics including Orthopedics and Neurology, X-ray and Laboratory Analysis, Permanent Impairment Rating, Whiplash and Spinal Trauma

Providing Customized Care to Benefit You

Dr. Johnson tailors care to each patient’s specific needs and goals, using thorough diagnostics including X-rays to locate the underlying cause of the problem accurately. Employing various adjusting techniques and other healing modalities, he creates customized care plans and will collaborate with other medical providers when needed to ensure optimal results.

In addition to chiropractic adjustments, he may recommend spinal decompression therapy for disc issues or FDA-approved cold laser therapy for pain in the extremities.
