Saved My Life!

Before coming to see Dr. Aaron I had severe pain all over my body, including
migraines and I felt miserable.

I tried various medications for migraines and physiotherapy to try to gain
strength in my muscles, with no success.

Chiropractic care saved my life! My headaches are now minimal and it has
totally changed my outlook on life. It was important that someone cared!

I can now ride my 3 wheel trike and complete regular tasks much better than

Back to Training

Before starting Chiropractic care I had several problems, including shoulder pain, groin pain, and some minor low back pain. This made me stop my martial arts training.

Prior to trying Chiropractic care I had tried electric shock, massage therapy, and avoidance of difficult physical activities.

The Chiropractic care I received from Dr. Aaron helped to analyse my bone structure and I can now train without discomfort.

I recommend Chiropractic care for others all of the time

Absolutely Wonderful

The staff are absolutely wonderful… I was very nervous for my first adjustment… The staff made me feel very comfortable, reassuming me the entire time… Definitely a pleasant experience..after only two adjustments I am able to do things that once caused me discomfort….I look forward to going to my appointment now.

Doctor truly listens to your concerns

I appreciate the friendliness and accommodating staff and that the doctor takes time to listen to your concerns. It was not a quick in and out like my previous experience but I felt we were actually working towards a goal. Thank you!

I am now able to run without pain

I sought chiropractic care for hip pain, poor balance, and neck strain. Chiropractic treatments helped me with my range of motion, improved my balance, and decreased the pain that I had in my hips. I am now able to run without pain, I have great posture, and the increased range of motion in my neck helps with driving. I would recommend chiropractic care for others.


Chiropractic care improved my posture

I had previously tried physiotherapy to improve my posture and decided to try chiropractic instead. Chiropractic care improved my posture and straightened my spine out by a significant amount. I now appear to stand up straighter than before.

Along with receiving chiropractic treatment, I started losing a lot of weight, which seemed to help improve my posture. I would definitely recommend chiropractic care to anyone. A chiropractor can not only help get rid of neck and back pain, but they can also improve posture.


Chiropractic did more than prescriptions ever did!

For several months I had been suffering pain in my arthritic right hip. Various medical personnel had treated me with drugs, physiotherapy, and acupuncture, all of which little or at best short-term relief. I finally plucked up my courage and visited Johnston Chiropractic Associates where a complete set of x-rays was taken, showing arthritis in both the right hip and most of my spine. One day while doing an adjustment, Doctor Aaron asked me if I had sinus or asthma problems to which I answered “Yes and yes”. He then went on to say that he could help improve my condition. My thoughts: Sinus? Well, maybe. Asthma? No way! I’ve had that for 65 years. Of course I didn’t verbalize those thoughts.

At home a few weeks later I walked up 14 stairs, out to my car and got in. I paused for a minute because something felt strange. Then I realized that I wasn’t wheezing nor was I reaching for my inhaler as I usually had to. In fact, I hadn’t used it for at least 2 days and my normal usage was 2-4 times per day! It was then that Doctor Aaron’s comments and question came back to me. He was right. The adjustments he had done on my neck had improved my breathing.

That was two months ago. Since then, occasional adjustments have allowed me to enjoy easier breathing while doing everyday activities. I’m now looking forward to being able to go biking again with easier breathing and an improved hip. I’m amazed at how the health of the back affects all areas of the body!

Chiropractic care has taken away my pain!

After my second surgery, despite using orthotics, I was not walking very well. I could swim, but not play golf as well as before. I had low back pain which was causing me to bend forward, not sleep, and have headaches. Plus, I’d become really slow at doing anything! Even my gardening was minimal.I had tried physiotherapy and acupuncture, the only thing that made any difference was ‘rolfing’ (a heavier form of physical therapy). After having a total right knee replacement that treatment no longer worked as well. Chiropractic care has taken away the pain that I was experiencing. My energy level and physical appearance have greatly improved, as well as my disposition and concentration. I am back to swimming 2-3 times a week, I can walk round a 9 hole golf course and play with no problems. I have already gotten my seeds planted and am watching bulbs come up in my garden!

I would certainly recommend Chiropractic Care to everyone and wonder why it took me so long to come to it. Dr Aaron has the personality needed to make you want to do it and looks at the whole person, including diet and encourages you at all points.

A more balanced life

Prior to seeking chiropractic care I had multiple problems.  I had low back pain, hip bursitis, neck tension, headaches, and plantar fasciatis.  These problems affected all areas of my life.

I tried other methods of treatment such as seeking out multitude of health professionals.

Chiropractic care worked in combination with other more natural means to bring my body closer to a pain free state.

The lifestyle changes that I was able to make were steering towards a more balanced life.

I would absolutely recommend chiropractic care for others.


My lifestyle has improved

Some problems I was experiencing  prior to chiropractic care include; low back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, as well I experienced constipation, digestive problems(hernia), shortness of breath when using stairs or exercising, and I was not sleeping well due to neck and jaw pain.

Before trying Chiropractic, I tried physiotherapy, acupuncture, as well as Advil, Tylenol, Nexium, for my heartburn, and a puffer for my asthma. Since starting my chiropractic care my pain is gone in my low back, shoulders and neck.  I haven’t had any heartburn and my bowel movements are improved.

My lifestyle has improved a lot, I can now exercise and run on the treadmill for up to 30 minutes, where as before I could only go for about 2 minutes when pain would start.  I can now breathe!  This has given me more confidence in myself and I look in the mirror and I look and feel so much better.  I can walk up a flight of stairs and I am able to breathe without any shortness of breath.

Yes I would recommend Johnston Chiropractic to co-workers and family and friends.   I plan to continue my adjustments for as long as I need to on a regular basis.

My family doctor had recommended that I have a hysterectomy due to heavy bleeding, but I chose not to have the surgery and so far, since I have begun my Chiropractic treatments, I  have continued to improve and my monthly cycle seems to have decreased somewhat, I am so happy not to have surgery and for choosing an alternative treatment such as Chiropractic.

Severe low back pain

Prior to Chiropractic care I experienced severe low back pain and I am only 22!  I was unable to work or complete household chores and even missed some social activities.

Before coming to the Chiropractor I went to a massage therapist every two weeks for about 8 months and took yoga classes regularly, however, neither worked.  Some back pain medication helped but only temporarily. Since my Chiropractic care I am now much more mobile.  I can sit at work for longer than seven hours without pain and I do not miss out on any other activities since receiving the regular adjustments.

Would I recommend Chiropractic care for others?  Yes!


I can work without pain

One of the problems I experienced before chiropractic care was low back pain.  I work at a computer all day and the pain was so bad I was never able to get comfortable.  Standing or walking for long periods was also painful.  I could hardly stand up at the end of the day.

Before chiropractic I had not tried any other treatments.  I was actually already a patient at Johnston Chiropractic Associates, but I had not been keeping up with my regular adjustments.  So, I decided to revisit and get some help and get myself back on track.  I was x-rayed and evaluated and a plan was made to include traction with my adjustments for an intense 4 days per week schedule of care.

Almost immediately I was feeling relief.  After 3-4 months I was able to work without pain again.  I could do as much and more than before I came for adjustments.  I also attended Dr. Aaron’s Wellness Seminars.  They were very informative and I try to implement the suggestions to improve my health.  It is a slow process for me but I know that I have the support of all the staff.

I would recommend chiropractic care and I already do.


Herniated Disk

Prior to Chiropractic care I had lower back & right leg pain due to a herniated disc that affected every aspect of my life.  I couldn’t get comfortable at all whether it be at home or at work.  I was in a great deal of pain; consequently.  I was miserable!

I tried physiotherapy, acupuncture, and various pain relievers.  Chiropractic care helped me by giving me a small amount of relief at first, but with time I improved greatly to the point of being able to lead a normal life again.  Before my herniated disc I walked for exercise and stress relief, but with all of my pain I wasn’t able to enjoy it anymore.  Consequently, I tried swimming as a way to move my body and relieve the pressure on my back and leg.  I have been better now for 4 years, but I haven’t stopped swimming.

I would recommend Chiropractic care for others for both those who do not currently have any physical alignments as a way of helping to make sure they don’t develop any and for those people who are currently suffering.


Returned to lifting weights after chiropractic care!

Some of the problems I was experiencing before chiropractic care included; pain in my left hip, sinus issues and shoulder pain.  I lost sleep since I was only able to sleep on my right side.  This also made it difficult to walk and added pain when I was out on the ATV in the hip area.  I had to retire from arm wrestling due to arm & shoulder pain.

Other methods of treatment I tried previous to chiropractic included taking Advil when the pain became unbearable. Chiropractic has helped me by taking the pain out of my hip, sinuses are no longer a discomfort and my shoulder is a less painful area.  An added benefit was increased circulation, which made my feet warmer and my forearms and fingers no longer go numb when I am driving.  I am now able to walk, skip, run, etc. without any hip pain.  Returned to lifting weights and may return to arm wrestling, and playing recreational volleyball.

Would I recommend chiropractic care?  Yes, most definitely!!

Chiropractic helped me change all aspects of my life

In my employment there are varied activities throughout the day.  There are many days where sitting is a large portion of my day and at other times I am walking a lot, as well as doing lifting and lugging.  Then there are the household chores that need to be done. There are days where you find yourself feeling stiff, back aching a bit, neck and shoulders bothering you from excessive computer work or lifting; all of which likely contributed to the “final straw,” so to speak.

In a household cleaning moment I was moving a piece of furniture down a flight of stairs when I experienced a stabbing pain in my lower back, strong enough to sit me down.  Throughout the day this continued, such that standing became the only thing I could do relatively pain free.  I went outside to feed my dog and took the second stabbing pain in my lower back that literally brought me to my knees.  At this point I decided I needed to do something and my family had tried chiropractic care previously, so I thought this might be good to try.  I tried over-the-counter medicine, but really it only relieved the pain temporarily, it did not fix the issue.

Chiropractic care alleviated and eliminated the pain and discomfort I was feeling.  Above and beyond this, I have learned to change my thinking, eating, exercise habits, and the big one – reducing and managing my stress level.  The chiropractic care allowed me to return to doing the things I could before.  I also was able to reintroduce myself to an old acquaintance, exercise, something that easily got knocked off the “to do” list.  The care provided, as well as the knowledge imparted while care was taking place, was phenomenal.  I have learned to change my thinking, eating, exercise habits, and reducing and managing my stress (both physical and emotional).   You have passed on invaluable tools for continuing the process and the adjustments are the bonus in keeping me on track.  The seminars were great tools for learning, motivation and inspiration.

I would recommend Chiropractic care to others.  Johnston Chiropractic Associates made this an enjoyable journey from start to finish, from the initial call to setup an appointment to reaching the maintenance sessions.  The positive spirit and energy that everyone puts into it makes it worthwhile.  Coming in daily was a pleasure; they made everyone feel welcome, expressed genuine caring and concern for clients, took the time to answer any and all questions, and became the support that many of us need to make the necessary changes in our lives.  I have learned to change many things in my life from thinking and eating, to exercise habits and managing stress. They have passed on invaluable tools for continuing the process at home and throughout other life routines.



Before Chiropractic care, some problems I was experiencing included; low back and neck pain, as well as headaches.  They affected all aspects of my daily life.

Prior to Chiropractic I tried massage therapy as well as medical drugs to relieve my symptoms, but this did not help.  Through Chiropractic I was able to have relief for my headaches and it has made it possible to move without pain and discomfort.  I have now resumed my regular activities.

Would I recommend Chiropractic care for others?  Always do!


Digestive Issues and Sinus trouble

Some problems I was experiencing prior to Chiropractic Care include; neck pain, shoulder and digestive issues, as well as sinus troubles.  At times the issues I was experiencing were affecting my work.  I had tried physiotherapy and medical drugs before attempting chiropractic.

Chiropractic care has helped me to function better in everything.  Prior to my care, I had to slow down in different activities.

Would I recommend Chiropractic care for others?  Yes!

Paralyzing low back pain

Prior to starting my Chiropractic care I was having nearly paralyzing low back pain that prevented me from doing even the simplest of activities.  Before Chiropractic I tried mild drugs – Advil, etc.

Chiropractic care has helped, not only relieve my pain quickly, it enabled me to get back to my fully functional self without worrying about a relapse. Since my care I was able to get back to being an out-doorsy person, canoeing, hiking, camping, & fishing.  All the things I wasn’t able to do before being treated.

I would heartily recommend Chiropractic for anyone who suffers from bone, joint or nerve pain.

K. Stiles

Neck Pain

Before chiropractic care I was experiencing neck pain.  The neck pain interfered with sleep, as well as, my ability to work.  It also affected my recreational activities.

Before Chiropractic I did try physiotherapy but it didn’t help.  After starting my Chiropractic care I was finally able to sleep through the night and I no longer have neck pain.  As far as returning to my regular routine of previous activities, I am getting there.

Would I recommend chiropractic care for others?  I sure would.

A. King

Could not straighten up when standing

One major problem I experienced before chiropractic care was that I was not able to straighten up, I couldn’t even put my socks on.  Prior to chiropractic care I had not tried any other methods of treatment.

With the help of chiropractic care I can now walk, skate, exercise and do every day things.  It does not hurt to stand for long periods of time anymore.

Would I recommend chiropractic care for others?  Yes, it certainly worked for me.

K. Horrelt

My pain affected my whole life

Before starting Chiropractic care I was experiencing neck pain, this in turn effected my work, household chores, as well as recreational activities.

I had not previously tried any other treatment methods.  Chiropractic care has helped me to be almost completely pain free.

I would recommend Chiropractic care to others.

I can walk and run without pain

Lower back pain is what I was experiencing, it effected my work, recreational activities and I had a hard time sleeping.  I did try physiotherapy and pain killers before trying Chiropractic care.

Since chiropractic care, I can do everything again.  I can walk and run without any pain.  I have started back at the gym.  Everything is better.  I have had no problems doing all the things I was doing before and now I can do more!

I have recommended and will continue to recommend chiropractic care, this has been the best thing I ever did.


I could not climb the stairs without difficulty

Some of the problems I was experiencing before chiropractic care included; low back pain, neck pain, as well as headaches.  This in turn affected my ability to do everyday household chores and recreational activities.  I was a complete wreck, could not climb stairs without difficulty and I could only walk for short distances before pain began.

Before chiropractic I did try physiotherapy, as well as, acupuncture and medical drugs.

Thanks to chiropractic care I am a completely different person.  I now exercise 3-4 times a week.  I now walk 5-6 times a week and I can run up the stairs.  I have also changed my eating habits, so this combined with daily exercise, I have now lost 30 lbs.

I would definitely recommend chiropractic care for others.


I do not have to stop running!

Before starting Chiropractic care I was experiencing back pain which affected my recreational activities, such as running and also my household chores.

Prior to trying Chiropractic care I had tried Massage Therapy.

The Chiropractic care I received from Dr. Aaron relieved my back pain, changed my lifestyle and allowed me to continue running without back pain.  Unfortunately, I can now shovel with no back pain too…

I would recommend Chiropractic care for others and I am very pleased I DO NOT have to stop running.
