Dr. Kerry Johnson – Founder

JSC - Savage
As a young chiropractic student, Dr. Kerry was facing fusion surgery because of debilitating lower back pain. Out of desperation, he visited an upper cervical doctor who’s practice was nearly an hour away.

The correction brought complete relief within one day!  When his good friend’s mother’s blood pressure reduced from 200/150 down to 150/100 within 15 minutes of her first correction, Dr. Kerry knew his life’s work would be NUCCA.   His commitment to mastering this state of the art method and his passion for delivering the very best and gentlest of care ensures your pathway to a better life.
