What Is The Gregory Johnson Technique?
Houston Chiropractor Dr. Gregory Johnson is a Cum Laude 1981 Graduate of Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport Iowa the Fountainhead of Chiropractic. The Gregory Johnson Technique is a combination of Chiropractic techniques taught at Palmer i.e., Palmer Diversified, Thompson, Gonstead, extremity adjusting and his post-graduate studies in various techniques and the science behind them. Dr Johnson studied under Dr. Dan Murphy, a Doctor of Chiropractic who teaches Chiropractors around the world in the science, especially neuroscience, neurophysiology, neuropathophysiology, biomechanics, Biophysics, and kinetics of the human body. The Gregory Johnson Technique is a combination of all of the aforementioned techniques and science all put together for the complete whole body approach formulated by Dr. Gregory E. Johnson DC, which combines 40+ years of successful practice experience and thousands of post-graduate continuing education hours in Biomechanics, Biophysics, Neuroanatomy, Neurophysiology, and Neuropathophysiology.
The Gregory Johnson Technique utilizes the Cartesian Coordinate System (X, Y, Z-Axis) to evaluate and adjust the Biomechanical integrity of the human spine, pelvis, and extremities and does pre and post three-dimensional posture analysis as well as mirror image adjustments of the spine and extremities. All adjustments are done with a high velocity, low amplitude specific thrust to realign the joint into its most biomechanically relevant position/alignment to the adjacent bone/joint. The main objective of the Gregory Johnson Technique is to detect and then correct biomechanical improprieties, (Subluxations) of the spine and extremities freeing the human body of neurological and physiological interferences, (The Vertebral Subluxation Complex) of the spine. Dr Johnson also adjust the pelvis, and extremities and allow for maximum joint range of motion breaching the paraphysiological space moving the joint being adjusted to its maximum joint range of motion within the anatomical integrity of the ligaments responsible for that particular joint’s integrity, (Full Range of Motion). This whole body adjustment approach stimulates mechanoreceptors in the capsular ligaments if the paraphysiological space has been breached taking the joint to the anatomical integrity of the ligaments in each joint to send proprioceptive neurological afferent impulses from the joint/nerve to the spinal cord and then into the cerebellum, (Brain) eliciting and neurological response i.e. Efferent Signals throughout the body that communicate through a negative feedback loop resulting in better neurological function which normally results in a reduction of pain reception i.e. (Pain Gate).
