As a teenager Dr. Johnson began having lower back pain that often became disabling. His parents took him to their pediatrician and to an orthopedist but nobody really knew what to do for him. In desperation they took him to a chiropractor. Dr. Johnson says, “Dr. Parlee had a great personality and told me he thought he could help.” After a few adjustments his pain disappeared. Occasionally the pain would reappear but Dr. Parlee always gave him relief.
“While at the University of California in Irvine I did some soul searching and decided I wanted to help people the way Dr. Parlee helped me.” Dr. Johnson attended the Southern California University of Health Sciences where he obtained his bachelors degree in Human Biology and a Doctorate of Chiropractic.
After finishing his internship he began a single doctor practice in Rancho Santa Margarita in November 1992. The original clinic, called Chiropractic Health Care of Rancho Santa Margarita was located at the top of Santa Margarita Parkway in the Albertson’s center. Dr. Johnson states “We started the practice with no patients and a lot of prayer.”
The practice grew from the early days until he outgrew the location on Plano Trabuco and eventually, setting up his practice in the very active business center of Plaza Empresa.
His practice also includes massage therapy to give patients a full range of health care services in one location.
