  • Dr.
    Stuart Johnson

    Dr. Stuart Johnson was raised on a ranch near Buffalo, SD.  He completed his Bachelor's degree in Pre-Professional Biology at Dickinson State University. While there, he competed in football, track and was on the Dean's list for his academic accomplishments. He graduated from Northwestern Health Sciences University receiving his Doctorate of Chiropractic degree in 2007. While at NWHSU he was President of Motion Palpation Adjusting Technique Club. Dr. Johnson has done extra study in Gonstead Technique and takes x-rays of his patients, allowing him to deliver specific, chiropractic care. He also utilizes the Insight Nerve Scan technology to assess the nervous system function.

    Dr. Johnson was introduced to chiropractic care after back and neck injuries in high school and college football. He went to multiple chiropractic clinics and finally found one that looked at the big picture, the body as a whole. The human body was designed to be healthy and not sick. Through regular chiropractic adjustments, proper nutrition and daily activity we can achieve optimal wellness!

    There is 100% life in your brain and that life flows through your spine and nervous system. You should be checked by a chiropractor to make sure there is no interference to that system (subluxation), so you can express your full potential!

    Dr. Johnson is at the Sturgis and Buffalo Clinics.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Before receiving chiropractic care I was unable to walk one block without hip and low back pain. Now I am able to walk 2 miles without pain since manual manipulation and back exercises. The most special part of my experience with Dr. Johnson was understanding why I have back pain. If you want to live pain free, then see Dr. Johnson."
    Karen Whitewood, SD
  • "The pain in my hip and low back put me at a stop. I couldn't work at all. My back greatly improved with adjustments. Chiropractic care took my pain away. The doctor offered kindness, friendship, and understanding. Not to worry, you will be well taken care of."
    Aldon Whitewood, SD Retired mechanic
  • "Due to arthritis in my neck I was having difficulty moving my neck and could not function. I even found it very difficult to drive my car. Currently at this time I have full mobility and I am proud to say that I am pain free. Dr Gunderson and staff are the best! I prefer a real solution and not pain killers. I feel like a new person... I have more energy, good sleep and my mood has greatly improved. Thank you!"
