Dr. Sarah Johnson - Las Vegas, Nevada

We've Got Your Back!

Dr. Sarah Johnson graduated from Palmer Chiropractic College in 2001.  She became a chiropractor after experiencing relief from chronic migraines.  She experienced 2-3 migraines weekly until she learned about NUCCA care, now she rarely has migraines, maybe once a year for the past 20 years.  This led her to learn more about the body and ultimately decided to go to Chiropractic school.

She has been practicing the upper cervical methods including NUCCA and Orthospinology since 2002.   She has participated in countless hours of specialized training in NUCCA and Orthospinology. Currently, she is enrolled in the 3-year program for Diplomate of Cranio Cervical Junction Procedures by the International Chiropractic Association (ICA) which leads to a greater understanding of the dysfunction and possible complications of spinal trauma and misalignment.

Upon graduation, Dr. Johnson worked with Dr. Michelle Nowakowski and together they established Spine Wellness Center in Las Vegas in 2002, continually learning the best methods and current research while helping people get well.

While attending Palmer Chiropractic College, Dr. Johnson was an active member of various organizations on campus. She participated in the NUCCA Student’s Club and worked in the community with America Reads Program.

Dr. Johnson continues to be involved with community and charitable activities. Professionally, she works with the ICA, NUCCA and Orthospinology organizations. She likes to be active physically- currently a member of the awesome local gym Raw Fitness.  She is driven to learn constantly, admires hard work and loves to become better at her chosen career.   Her and her husband love to try new food, travel and explore new wines.  They are often found cooking in the kitchen, experimenting with a new recipe or perfecting an old Carribean recipe.   They have 2 dynamic children and love to see the world through their eyes.

Dr. Johnson looks forward to meeting you!

Dr. Lisa Strickland - Las Vegas, Nevada

Meet Dr. Lisa Strickland, an Upper Cervical Chiropractor at Spine Wellness Center of Southern Nevada. In 1997 Dr. Strickland was a Licensed Massage Therapist, working with a chiropractor. After witnessing incredible changes in patients from week to week, Dr. Strickland moved forward in her career and went on to Palmer College of Chiropractic to become a chiropractor.

She has a Bachelor’s of Science degree from Excelsior College.

A 2003 graduate of Palmer College in Davenport, Iowa, Dr. Strickland does a gentle, non-invasive technique of Chiropractic called N.U.C.C.A. which stands for National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association. There is absolutely no popping, cracking or twisting of the head, neck, or spine. This correction of the spine is painless and safe.

Why the N.U.C.C.A technique?
"When I was 18 years old, I was in a car accident, in which my car was rearended. For treatment after the accident, I went to a chiropractor that I was referred to by a friend. This chiropractor adjusted the traditional way (with popping and cracking). I felt better, but I had to go 4 to 5 times a week for 3 weeks, after the 3 weeks it went down to 3 times a week. Over time, I was put on maintenance care, which meant I got checked once a month. I was never told, if I was having pain to come back sooner than a month. Even after a year of care I still suffered from low back pain, with not much relief.

Four years after the car accident, I started working as a massage therapist in a N.U.C.C.A. doctor's office. After my first N.U.C.C.A. adjustment, I have had little to no low back pain since.

What does Dr. Strickland look for in potential patients?
She looks for people with Body Imbalance which is a postural distortion such as unlevel shoulders, unlevel hips, and uneven leg lengths. When a body is in an imbalanced position it can cause pain, stress and tension that results in many negative health conditions.
