River Hills Chiropractic provides sports medicine and more

River Hills Chiropractic in Lanesboro is a busy place – and the busiest person there is Dr. Kay Johnson, DC, CCSP. Not only can you find her in her clinic on 102 Sheridan Street West, you might also spot her on the sidelines of many a football and volleyball game, since she helps our local athletes get back in the game through her work in sports medicine. Johnson grew up in Rushford, Minn. and graduated from Rushford high school. She played basketball and ran track during these years, beginning a lifelong love of sports medicine which continues into her practice today.

Chiropractic medicine wasn’t her original plan – in fact, her major was biology with a pre-optometry focus while attaining her bachelor’s degree at UW Eau Claire. However, several of her pre-chiropractic friends got her interested in the field and invited her to joing them at a chiropractic school open house in Davenport. The rest, she says, “is history”. She reports coming back home that summer with an interest in the study, talking to a chiropractor in town, and in between her summer job, spending time at his clinic where she saw and talked to many people who benefitted from the care. She returned to school and changed her focus to pre-chiropractic.

She entered Palmer College of Chiropractic, Davenport Iowa, and recalls the “very intense” schooling during that time – “you go all day from 7:30 to at least 4, and usually there’s night labs and studying as well” she says “also, the average credit load is 32 credits a semester, instead of the 18 a semester at regular college”. Johnson didn’t just spend her days at a desk, however. She also went to India for two weeks to provide free care to the people there. She states this was very interesting and “one of the best parts of my time at Palmer”.

Her first job was with a clinic in Oshkosh, Wis. where she completed her internship. This, Johnson says, was an extremely busy clinic with five doctors and teo massage therapists. One and a half years later, she moved on to Eau Claire, where she worked for three and a half years at a smaller clinic. Here she enjoyed spending much more time one-on-one with her patients, as well as working with Regis High School athletes and coaches. Finally, she decided she wanted to get back to her home and family, and in 2004 opened her own practice in Lanesboro. Opening her own practice, she states, gives her the freedom to practice the way s .....
