Dr. Edward Johnson
I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself and give you some background information about my training and education. I hope it will answer some of your questions and stimulate others.
In 1978 I graduated from the University of Fresno with a Bachelor degree in Biology with Zoology minor. Following graduation from the University of Fresno, I attended Palmer College of Chiropractic, located in Davenport, Iowa. At Palmer College of Chiropractic I received the degree of Doctor of Chiropractic. In 1982 I received my license to practice in the state of Florida and set up practice in Valparaiso.
Over the next 14 years I received the following post graduate certifications;
1. 1992- I was the first Chiropractor in the county to receive certification in Rehabilitation from the Chiropractic Rehabilitation Association.
2. 1993- I became a Diplomat of the American Academy of Pain Management.
3. 1995- I received my second Certification in Chiropractic Rehabilitation.
Also in 1995 I became certified in Workers Compensation and Impairment Rating.
4. 1996- I was certified in Functional Capacity and Disability Evaluation by the National Association of Disability Evaluating Professionals.
5. In 2010- I received postgraduate training in Functional Medicine
6. In 2012- I Graduated from the University of Bridgeport with a Master Degree of Science in Human Nutrition.
From 1982-1998 I was in active practice and established two clinics in Niceville under the name of Chiropractic Associates. In 1998 I sold both of these clinics to further development another company that I had started. I quickly found that I was not happy with this direction in my life and realized that I sincerely missed the fulfillment I received from helping people with their health needs. As a consequence of this, I reopened a clinic in Niceville once again in 2004.
During this time away from practice I realized that I needed to further my education to enable me to help those patients who would not normally respond to standard Chiropractic care. To accomplish this I became National Board Certified in Acupuncture and received further post graduate training in Allergy Elimination and Advanced Nutritional Testing Procedures. I have observed over the years that patients who are nutritionally deficient were unable to maintain their adjustments causing them to require numerous treatments. We are able to reduce the number of treatments needed by offering a more complete program of wellness which enables the body to recover faster.
One of the more exciting aspects of my post graduating training has been the addition of Allergy Elimination to our treatment program. Many illnesses are caused by inflammatory reactions caused by allergies. For example, many people suffer from Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) as a result of a food allergy or sensitivity which has gone undiagnosed for years. Instead of treating the symptoms of these conditions, I prefer to treat the cause. It makes better sense to eliminate the cause of the irritation rather than try to cover it up with medication; this is the main premise of Functional Medicine. With the addition of N.A.E.T. treatments, we can reduce the bodies’ negative response to many allergens which can decrease or eliminate the inflammation which is responsible for the irritation to the bowels.
In short we are able to supply excellent Chiropractic care to solve the mechanical problems with the spine and other joint. We can answer the age old question, what vitamins should I take, by developing a personalized program of nutritional support. We can measure your relative fitness and help you establish a Nutritional Program to meet your individual health needs.

I had an ankle adjustment that floored me. Took care of a three-week burning ache in a minute. This is the second time in the last month that this Dr. has performed outstanding adjustments on me. I highly recommend him.
