Partner, Dr. Gregory Johnston, B.H.K., B.Ed., D.C.

Dr. Greg Johnston graduated from Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in 1999 and has been practicing in St. Thomas since that time. Dr. Johnston has served as president for the London Chiropractic Society and is a member of both the Ontario Chiropractic Association (OCA) and the Canadian Chiropractic Association (CCA).  Previous to that, Dr. Johnston graduated from the University of Windsor with degrees in Human Kinetics and Education. He taught elementary school in the Sarnia area for three years before returning to school to train as a chiropractor.

Dr. Johnston’s practice revolves around the use of “diversified technique”. This is the primary technique taught at Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College. The great aspect of practicing this technique is that it allows for the integration of the best aspects of the various chiropractic techniques into an individualized treatment program for each patient. Dr. Johnston’s goal as a chiropractor is to elevate the quality of life of others through the optimization of health.
