13 years ago I was in a tremendous amount of back pain while pregnant. Nothing was able to alleviate that pain. It was recommended that I see Dr. Johnston. I had no idea what osteopathy was nor how my life would transform. He is a gifted doctor who has successfully treated my entire family through the years. I highly recommend Dr. Dave!
