Meet Dr. Karl Johnson, DC, BCN, FIFHI, FICPA
Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson has been delivering exceptional patient care since his graduation with honors from Palmer College of Chiropractic in 1983. With an unwavering commitment to his profession, he established Advanced Chiropractic Care Center, PC, which is now known as Johnson Chiropractic Neurology & Nutrition, in May of that same year. Renowned for his expertise, Dr. Johnson has dedicated his practice to assisting individuals with chronic conditions that have not responded well to alternative treatments or who have yet to achieve their desired recovery outcomes using conventional methods.
Dr. Johnson is a highly knowledgeable and experienced practitioner, having graduated from the prestigious American Functional Neurology Institute. His dedication to further education is evident through his extensive postgraduate study in neurology, totaling over 400 hours. Furthermore, he has achieved board certification in neurofeedback from the Biofeedback Certification International Alliance. Dr. Johnson’s pursuit of excellence is also reflected in his fellowships with the Institute for Human Individuality and the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. His unwavering commitment to ongoing research and learning has earned him a well-deserved reputation among his patients as a doctor who goes the extra mile to uncover the underlying causes of health challenges.
Dr. Johnson firmly believes in taking a comprehensive approach to patient care, understanding that your illness does not define you. Instead, he acknowledges the numerous factors that contribute to your overall well-being. With a wealth of knowledge acquired from esteemed physicians and researchers in the fields of functional medicine and neurofeedback, Dr. Johnson is deeply passionate about offering drug-free solutions for optimal brain health. He has undergone specialized training in cutting-edge techniques like the Safe and Sound Protocol, Heart Math heart rate variability biofeedback, Interactive Metronome, and IM Home systems. Additionally, Dr. Johnson is board-certified in neurofeedback (BCIA BCN). At Michigan Brain Health, the primary focus is on maximizing brain function to improve daily performance. This is accomplished through brain-wave training, dietary interventions to regulate gut-mediated inflammation, and teaching individuals how to reduce their fight or flight response (CNS arousal dysregulations) through heart rate variability biofeedback and the Safe and Sound Protocol program.
Neurofeedback is a powerful tool he utilizes to optimize brain function. Grounded in basic learning theory, neurofeedback, also known as EEG biofeedback, trains the brain to enhance self-regulation and discover more efficient pathways for improved management and healing. While neurofeedback doesn’t directly treat conditions, it assists the nervous system in making adjustments to improve overall function.
Neurofeedback has been proven to have profound benefits in a wide range of conditions, providing significant improvements, remediation, and relief. By combining it with nutritional support to enhance body function, neurofeedback can even offer assistance in managing the effects of mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) and concussions. It’s important to keep in mind that EEG biofeedback is not a medical procedure and cannot be used to diagnose or treat mental or neurological disorders. Instead, its focus is on gradually and systematically increasing a person’s competence through coaching and biofeedback.
