After consulting with hundreds of patients, I am seeing a scary pattern that I want to bring to your attention.Read More
From the Desk of Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC.....
Pain comes from all different sources—and that includes exercise. Sometimes you push it, for example if you go on a run and go longer than you ever have before. Sometimes you push it by adding weights to a routine, or even just doing something that’s new to you. Regardless, that pain can make movement and continuing your routine difficult. That’s why it’s helpful to find easy, inexpensive, accessible ways to make pain lessen more quickly. Enter the humble tennis ball.
A tennis ball is an excellent tool because it’s small and easy to use and a great way to get specifically at those trigger points—those sources of pain that might be holding tightness, for example. You can keep a tennis ball on hand anywhere, and in just a minute or two complete an exercise that opens up an area and lets you get on with life. What are those routines and how can you do them? This graphic explains it.Read More
Get to know mitochondria
Mitochondrial dysfunction refers to errors in the function of the specialized organelles (mitochondria) present in every cell of our body with the exception of red blood cells. Mitochondria are best known as the "power plants" of the cells and they make our energy molecule known as Adenosine Triphosphate or ATP, however their role in our body is much more complex than once thought. Without mitochondria we cease to exist, but when these specialized structures don't work right, our life can take a big turn for the worse!
The United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation further explains the complexities:Read More

Too Many People Are Hurting And I Want to Help
People dealing with chronic pain are everywhere. We are seeing both children and adults dealing with more and more headaches, back pain, neck pain, joint pain and pain syndromes. Chronic pain is defined as pain that persists longer than six months. Long term pain is often accompanied by other symptoms. These symptoms can include poor sleep, poor emotional control, depression, anxiety, fatigue and burnout.
It is important to not just cover up the symptoms of chronic pain. There is no doubt that drugs that reduce or relieve pain can help people deal with the pain. It is important not to rely on the drugs in the long term. There are major side effects with many of these medications. The CDC recently reported that deaths from prescription opioids have more than quadrupled since 1999. It is important for people to know a non-drug option exists for chronic pain.
If you have an autoimmune disease, you may already know it's important to avoid things that triggers flare-ups of your symptoms. While many autoimmune patients use an anti-inflammatory diet to avoid triggering foods, certain environmental chemicals can also cause flare ups.Read More
Exercise with Total Brain & Body O2
We offer exercise with enhanced air therapy (sometimes called exercise with oxygen therapy or EWOT) to enhance brain function and energy production. The system we use is called Total Brain & Body O2 Therapy, manufactured by Ergo-Flex Technologies, LLC.The basis of the protocol on Total Brain & Body O2 Therapy is to induce O2 deprivation and then once recognized by the software data, flood the body with O2 saturation and take advantage of the vasodilation/saturation by pushing it to as much tissue as possible via exercise (in this case our NordicTrack ® Commercial VR21 recumbent bike). Total Brain & Body O2 Therapy is designed to facilitate healing by super-saturating nearly all body tissues (especially brain, kidney, liver) plasma and lymph with very high levels of oxygen that permeates the tissues because of the exercise component.
Neuroplasticity Requires Oxygen
We can use Total Brain & Body O2 Therapy as a stand alone therapy or prior to neurofeedback training to increase oxygen levels in the brain. Total Brain & Body O2 Therapy is supplied via the Total Brain & Body O2 apparatus and is non invasive and painless. It can be combined with the Dr. Johnson’s neurofeedback therapy to provide faster and more synergistic results.
Total Brain & Body O2 Therapy ensures the maximum amount of oxygen reaches where it is needed the most; to damaged and inflamed tissues and allows them to return to normal aerobic metabolism. Total Brain & Body O2 starts a healing process where the process halted due to poor cellular healing capacity.
Oxygen is vital for every function of the body and brain. No matter what your present level of physical and mental health, you will benefit from flooding your cells with live giving oxygen.Read More
