Preventative Care Q&A
How can osteopathic medicine manage my stress?
Hands-on manipulation detects minor imbalances in the body’s fascia, joints and nerves. It promotes stress resiliency, enhanced relaxation and a more restful sleep by balancing the fight or flight nervous system.
How can osteopathic treatment ignite the internal healing process?
- By strengthening the body’s immune and endocrine systems
- Preventing injury by improving core posture and body mechanics
- By balancing and restoring the body’s natural state of vitality
- By normalizing lymphatic and blood circulation to remove cellular waste and bring in nutrients and oxygen
How often should I come for maintenance treatments?
The same way we tune-up our car and change the oil, our bodies function best with an osteopathic tune-up every 1-2 months. This allows irregular internal patterns to be worked out before they become chronic pain conditions.
How often should I do IV hydration therapy?
There are many different IV infusions available and the frequency of treatments are tailored to meet each patient’s unique needs. Some people incorporate infusions into their weekly routine, particularly if they are using it to heighten their immune system, increase their energy or prevent migraines.
What specialized lab tests are available?
We utilize the principles of integrative medicine, along with personalized laboratory tests. These may include looking at toxic metals, food allergies, hormone imbalances, and vitamin deficiencies. Results allow a clear understanding of the cause of the metabolic dysfunctions in your body and how Dr. Johnston can best treat them before they become chronic conditions.
