Chiropractic Care Q & A

What is chiropractic care?

Chiropractic care is a noninvasive and nonpharmaceutical form of health care that focuses on your musculoskeletal and nervous systems, with primary emphasis on your spine. 

Your body’s nerves all congregate in your spine. Spinal misalignment, disc degeneration, and aging put pressure on the nerves and cause pain, inflammation, and illness. 

The team at Johnson Medical Center creates a custom plan for you that may include spinal manipulation, physical therapy, chiropractic massage, lifestyle modifications, laser therapy, and regenerative medicine therapy to restore balance and improve your ability to move freely.

What conditions does chiropractic care treat?

Rather than putting a Band-Aid® on your symptoms, Dr. Johnson, DC, uses a whole-body approach to determine and treat the underlying cause of your condition. Conditions that chiropractic care treats include:

  • Back, neck, and shoulder pain
  • Sciatica
  • Neuropathy
  • Headaches
  • Joint inflammation
  • Sports and automobile injuries
  • Muscle pain
  • Tendon strains
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Whiplash

Talk to the team at Johnson Medical Center about your health concerns, so they can partner with you to help your body heal itself.

What can I expect after a chiropractic adjustment?

You can expect to feel some immediate relief. Depending on your condition and what Dr. Johnson, DC, is treating, you may feel completely better after a single visit, or you may need several adjustments over the course of a few weeks. 

Each adjustment manipulates and shifts your bones and tissues to relieve pressure, reduce inflammation, and improve circulation. With your body back in alignment, your immune system is poised to fend off invaders, and your pain dissipates.

What is laser therapy?

One of the signature services at Johnson Medical Center is laser therapy to boost your circulation, which speeds up the healing process and reduces downtime. Dr. Johnson, DC, has studied and researched the field of laser therapy and has earned a credential to use it. 

He is proud to be the first doctor in Sarasota County to make the 30-watt Class IV therapeutic laser’s cutting-edge technology available to the community in order to:

  • Decrease inflammation
  • Minimize scar tissue formation
  • Speed up wound healing
  • Manage pain

Laser treatment is especially effective if you suffer from cervical pain, plantar fasciitis, hip pain, stress injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, bursitis, and arthritis.

In conjunction with laser therapy and chiropractic adjustments, Dr. Johnson, DC, also provides advanced physical medicine procedures including sedative stretching or manipulation under anesthesia (MUA), spinal flexion-distraction, active-assisted stretching, proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation, computerized spinal decompression, ultrasound therapy, interferential stimulation, and deep tissue massage, to name a few.
