Dr. Karen Johnson, BSc, DC – Chiropractor
With more than 7 years of clinical experience working in Toronto and Vancouver, Dr. Karen Johnson has a depth of experience and knowledge working with a variety of conditions and injuries. Dr. Karen has special training in the Webster technique, which is a specific adjustment and soft-tissue treatment used to help facilitate mother’s pelvic alignment and nervous system functions while pregnant. This, in turn, balances pelvic muscles and ligaments, reduces torsion to the uterus and offers a greater potential for optimal fetal positioning.
Dr. Karen’s treatments are gentle and effective. She employs a diverse group of techniques such as soft tissue therapy, joint mobilization, spinal and extremity manipulation as well as exercise prescription to treat everyone from the elderly to children. Her goal is to find the root cause of the problem and/or dysfunction, instead of solely treating pain symptoms.
When she isn’t treating patients you’ll probably find her spending time outdoors with her husband and children, working out at CrossFit Empower, doing puzzles or cooking!
Dr. Karen graduated with honours from the University of Guelph followed by four years of study at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto. Dr. Karen has completed advanced study in Contemporary Medical Acupuncture from McMaster University.
Dr. Karen is an active member in good standing with the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association, British Columbia Chiropractic Association, Canadian Chiropractic Association and College of Chiropractors of British Columbia.
