Our nurse practitioner can evaluate you for all your medical needs or refill your prescription. We strive to treat the whole patient and not just your symptoms. Blood work and allergy testing may be obtained for a whole picture of what is truly happening in your system. Supplements may be prescribed with medications to encourage your body to heal itself, instead of an endless cycle of drugs. Our nurse practitioner also does joint injections, IV therapies, comprehensive blood work, hormone and allergy testing.
Dr. Johnson has been a chiropractor since 2008. His approach is gentle yet firm. Patients who are “difficult to adjust” will find Dr. Johnson is a perfect fit. He works well with patients who haven’t been able to be adjusted before, or patients who just don’t like to be adjusted because they find it uncomfortable with previous chiropractors. Dr. Johnson adjusts, elderly to infants, petite to large and even has a number of other chiropractors as patients. He uses his own technique based on years of experience and listening to patient needs. Dr. Johnson treats patients based on needs and there are no long-term programs or up-front packages. Patients make their own appointments based on recommendations without the uncomfortable pushy approach you may have found in other offices.
Day in and day out we hear the same story from men and women. Why is it so hard to lose weight? As we age and stress takes a toll on our bodies, cortisol levels rise contributing to weight gain and a number of other health issues. We don’t take a single approach to weight loss. Blood work and hormone testing may be obtained in order to get a baseline of where to start. Supplements may be prescribed to get your body in balance. A number of different modalities may be used:
- Hormone balance
- Food allergy testing
- Rid the body of toxins (Invisa-RED therapy)
- Exercise/nutrition coaching
Massage and Rehab therapy
We take a full body approach when it comes to your care. Often times you will need exercise and stretching with your chiropractic care in order to prevent from re-injuring yourself. Not only will you receive chiropractic care, but other therapies as well. Stretching and exercise are important in getting the most out of your adjustment.

Platelet concentrates have been utilized in medicine for over two decades because of their ability to rapidly secrete autologous growth factors and ultimately speed wound healing. Initial attempts were first made using anticoagulants resulting in PRP. Later, protocols were developed with the aim of avoiding the use of anticoagulants because clotting is pivotal during the wound healing cascade. The resulting biomaterial is called PRF. Today, platelet concentrates have become incredibly relevant worldwide with their use spanning across nearly every field of regenerative medicine.
Tissue engineering requires three parameters:
A scaffold responsible to support tissue ingrowth.
Cells that may act to promote tissue regeneration
Growth factors that stimulate the overall wound healing events
Unlike the majority of biomaterials currently available on the market, PRF actually contains each of these three properties.
At Leading Edge Medical, PRF is used for:
Joint injections to stimulate healing from injury
Esthetics (Microneedling, dark circles, overall anti-aging)
The process for collecting PRF is simple. We first draw your blood and then spin it in a centrifuge. The blood is then separated into a plasma layer, rich in platelets and leukocytes, and a blood layer with the majority of red blood cells. The plasma layer is drawn out and then injected into the desired tissue by our on-staff nurse practitioner.
PRF is often preferred over stem cell due to its affordability and the appeal of it being autologous (from your own body).
Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cells are undifferentiated cells naturally found and produced in our bodies. Since stem cells are undifferentiated, they attach to any cells in the body that need repair. No other cell in the body has the innate ability to generate new cell types.
At Leading Edge Medical, we use Regen stem cells which specializes in using Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) which are sourced from donated umbilical cord blood, bone marrow or adipose fat tissue (whether it is from the patient or a donor); and we do not obtain stem cells from embryos.
Stem cells are directly injected into the affected area (e.g. knee, hip, shoulder), it will be carried out by our NP so you can rest assured that you are in good hands. The direct injection method ensures that there will be a high concentration of stem cells to repair the injured body part effectively.
A huge part of our overall health is eating the right foods at the right times. We offer nutritional coaching for clients wanting to lose weight or just wanting a more healthy lifestyle. Our coach will tell you exactly what to eat each week, taking out the hardest part of trying to lose weight. We can also do food allergy testing in conjunction.
Our NP or RN can deliver IV nutrition or just hydration. Oral supplements can sometimes only absorb in the body at 15-20%. IV delivers hydration and vitamins to immediately hydrate you and give you 100% absorption. We infuse cocktails of Antioxidants, vitamins and minerals to give your body the boost it needs to get you on track to better health.

Trigger Point Injections
A trigger point injection (TPI), is an injection of an anti-inflammatory that is given directly into the trigger point for pain management.
E-stim uses electrical pulses to target muscles or nerves.. E-stim therapy for muscle recovery sends signals to targeted muscles to make them contract.
invisa-RED uses a combination of specific frequencies from both red and infrared laser light energy. The combination of dual coherent frequencies enables the light energy to penetrate deep into fat generating a significant response in cellular functions and stimulation of the body’s natural metabolism
Regenerative Stem-Cell Therapy
Regenerative stem cell therapy, promotes the repair response of diseased, dysfunctional or injured tissue using stem cells or their derivatives. …
Spinal decompression is a type of traction therapy applied to the spine in an attempt to bring about benefits including: Creating a negative intradiscal pressure to promote retraction or repositioning of the herniated or bulging disc material.
