Dr. Josh Johnston is an expert in Cervical Acceleration / Deceleration Syndrome

Cervical Acceleration / Deceleration Syndrome or C.A.D.S. commonly known as whiplash can be one of the most uncomfortable of the soft tissue injuries. Many people experience this after a MVA or Motor Vehicle Accident, some findings show that C.A.D.S. can have lasting effects and may require multiple treatments to gain a good patient outcome.

Which Doctor Should I See?

As an injury biomechanist, the most important thing you can do if you have been in a crash and have symptoms, is to have an evaluation including a Human Risk Factor Analysis. The only question is which provider is the best for you to see first to help manage or “quarterback” your injuries and treatment. I have didactic training in accident reconstruction. The ideal doctor is one who has the time to accurately diagnose and document your injuries, has training in biomechanics and auto crash reconstruction, and has advanced post-graduate training from both chiropractic and medical schools, willing to work with any providers that you want to include in your care. The first 60 days after an injury are critical for you as it relates to treatment. What happens at the beginning determines what will happen to you at the end.

Dr Johnston and his staff are professional, knowlegable, friendly and make you feel at ease.

I had seen many doctors and specialists regarding my back problems. I  was not healing at the rate someone my age should heal. After 15 months of heavy treatment with chiros, doctors, specialists and physical therapists I was still in severe pain and “tip-toeing” around life. It affected every part of my life including my sleep & ability to sit at a desk at work. As an active & heath consious person, this injury wore on my professional life, personal life, emotional health and well – being.

I had a complicated problem which my prior doctors were not experienced in treating. I was advised by multiple doctors and health professionals that I should make an appt with a surgeon to solve my problem.

When I came to Vitality (15 months after the injury), they were eager to learn about my case and try several different tests on me before constructing a treatment plan. Every step of the treatment process was explained to me. The best part: within a few treatments I noticed something different was going on in my body. My pain was subsiding and I was able to feel like a human being again!

The DRX machine has been very helpful in my treatment and recovery. I was at my wit’s end. Vitality was my last resort before surgery. Thanks to Vitailty it looks like I will not need surgical intervention and I will be able to do the active things I loved to do before my injury.

I was referred to Vitality by a “friend of a friend.” I am so glad I was introduced to Vitality. This health center has drastically improved my well – being.

Dr. Josh is awesome!  I have been seeing him on and off for about 12 years.  I saw him first after some major surgery.  My back and neck were just a mess from being in a hospital bed for weeks at a time.  He got me feeling good in my upper back and neck area.  I had issues with my lower back and he couldn’t adjust me due to my surgical wounds and was very gentle with me.  After I healed up from that, I see Dr. Josh when I am stressed.  I carry it in my shoulders.  Usually one or two adjustments and he has me back in fine shape.  He doesn’t stretch out your treatments for weeks at a time like some chiropractors do.  His staff is nice and he is very easy to make an appointment with.  They are all very professional.  Many members of my family see him.  It’s hard to find a chiropractor you can trust your life to.  Let’s face it, not many people are comfortable getting their neck adjusted.  However, I can honestly say, I can feel safe letting Dr. Josh do my adjustments.  I would highly recommend seeing him for any chiropractic needs!!!!

Dr. Johnston has been my Chiropractor since he began his practice in Denver.  I have nothing but absolute praise for the treatment I have received from his office over the years. (Much to the dismay of my MD!) Their professionalism, courtesy and concern reflects Dr. Johnstons moral and ethicle values and his skill and knowledge are unsurpassed.  The absolute highest praise I can give is to say that I have taken, not just referred, but TAKEN, loved ones to him.
