Chiropractic care is the cornerstone of our practice. Dr. Johnson is a graduate of Palmer College in Davenport and has been practicing for over 3 decades and in the same location since 1995. Like so many chiropractors, her motivation to choose this profession was relief from health conditions which medical intervention proved impotent but were resolved at the hands of a capable chiropractor. For all of her career Dr. Johnson has remained certified in the Activator method of chiropractic. The Activator method performs spinal adjustments with a low impact directed to specific sites of adjustment. The Activator method of adjusting is the gentlest form of adjustment with no twisting, popping or thrusting. It suits everyone but is especially beneficial in the treatment of young children, people who have chronic pain which flares after a typical adjustment, or anyone who cannot relax during a typical chiropractic adjustment.
Following on her own experience, from the beginnning of her career Dr. Johnson incorporated nutrition into her practice. She is certified by the Loomis Institute as a Digestive Health Specialist.
Therapeutic massage targets painful muscles to reduce pain and inflammation significantly, speeding up recovery from muscular injuries and providing relief for those who experience chronic muscular pain. Becky Troyer, LMT, has been with Doctor Johnson for over 25 years. Becky is certified in cranial sacral therapy. Lilian Rigby, LMT received her training in medical massage therapy, has been working at Chiropractic & Wellness Center three years, and has developed quite an enthusiastic following. Kriss Luckett-Ziesmer, LMT is the newest member of our team. Kriss is trained in prenatal and geriatric massage.
Cold Laser Therapy Treatment For Pain
Cold laser therapy treats pain and injury using infrared and red light. The technology is over 50 years old, widely used in Europe and Asia and is only now are its benefits becoming recognized and accepted in the United States. The mechanism of laser therapy is to improve cell function through an increase in ATP, the primary energy of cell. This enables the cells to heal, rebuild and replace faster. Cold laser therapy can speeds up the healing process of traumatic injury, athletic stress, has been shown to accelerate the knitting of broken bones, reduce the pain and loss of function associated with neuropathy and so much more. Chronic pain can be managed with laser therapy. The advantage of laser therapy as a treatment for chronic pain is it cannot cause addiction or other harmful side effects.
