Dr.Glen Johanson is the only chiropractor in southern Alberta that utilizes TRT and TIC to care for patients.
Torque Release Technique (TRT), has been proven through research to be the most specific, scientific chiropractic technique in the world.
TRT is the first chiropractic technique of the new millennium and provides practice members of any age with the most gentle and reproducible chiropractic adjustments available.
TRT is a mixture of the ”best-of- the-best” systems of chiropractic assessment and care.
Published research shows TRT to be successful in reducing anxiety and depression, and improved measurements of well-being.
Tonal Integrative Correction (TIC) Chiropractic System is based upon chiropractic’s founder D.D. Palmer’s statement that “life is the expression of tone.” TIC was developed right here in Alberta by Dr. Jason Sabo within the largest family practice in Canada.
By bringing together neural, muscular and skeletal components, TIC restores the normal degree of nerve tension (tone) and expression for the maintenance of optimal body harmony and function.
TIC is about removing interference within the body, so that the power that made the body can heal the body. Many patients have reported improvement of symptoms to absolute remission with consistent neurological correction.
Over the past decade of hands on learning and application in a clinical setting, the TIC Chiropractic System has helped to clarify and improve the chiropractor’s ability to provide safe, gentle and specific care that has patients coming back for maintenance and referring their loved ones in, to begin their chiropractic journey.
Most people have assumptions about what chiropractic is, but what we do is very different.
We want you to experience a new way to obtain optimal health. Torque Release Technique and Tonal Integrative Correction entails no twisting, cracking or popping.
You will have confidence in getting your brand new baby, children, right through to grandma and grandpa adjusted for the most effective care available today. The correction is so specific we have had great results from the smallest person to the largest athlete. Through a series of neurological checks, Dr. Glen assesses when, where and what to adjust in order to get to the primary cause within the spine.
Dr. Glen, being a father of two young boys, has a passion for helping pregnant women and children.
Dr. Glen’s care is designed specifically to help moms be more comfortable throughout their pregnancy, as well as be perfectly aligned to assist in the best delivery possible. Research has proven chiropractic care can give your baby the best start by allowing for a healthier pregnancy, decreased labor time, less pain and smoother delivery.
When performing an adjustment on a child, a skilled and experienced chiropractor, like Dr. Johanson, need only use a minimal amount of force, analogous to the pressure used to check the skin of a ripe tomato, and can even be performed while the child is sleeping!
Chiropractic care seems to be a universal method of treatment used by all kinds of people. Since receiving frequent chiropractic care I have noticed an improvement in my posture, sleep, energy, and emotional balance. My advice to people I know is that chiropractic care is an essential part of a healthy lifestyle. Dr. Glen has been great and I would highly recommend him. Kyle D
Dr. Glen’s chiro care should be a requirement for prevention of conditions. Getting regular adjustments has made a world of difference. First the headaches went away, then my back has gotten much better and I continue with treatments to prevent these headaches and pain. It feels better to have an adjustment rather than to take pain medication to cover the symptom but never address the cause. You can gain better results with adjustments. Tina T
