Dr. Johnson has extensive experience in promoting health and fitness in populations of various ages and levels of athletic ability. Dr. Johnson earned her Master of Physical Therapy degree from Loma Linda University in 2000. While working as a PT in various settings, Dr. Johnson became interested in understanding the relation between musculoskeletal function as it relates to the prevention of chronic disease. Administering physical therapy to individuals who became injured at work perked her interest in prevention of work-related injuries. While employed by Spine & Sport based in San Diego, California she learned the EPIC protocol and worked closely with a multidisciplinary team of physicians, Chiropractors, and Exercise Physiologists that shared a common goal of returning injured individuals back to work stronger and better armed that their pre-injury level.
