Homegrown Hunter Johnson long believed Tulsa would be his forever home. Raised in Jenks and following in his father’s footsteps, he first studied dentistry at Oklahoma State. Then, a conversation with his uncle in Canada changed everything.
Hunter shared how he would prefer blazing a trail of his own in the medical field. His uncle suggested he consider chiropractics. That idea immediately appealed to him.
“I could see I’d be good at it,” Hunter says. “A chiropractor addresses the real problem, helping people by working together with them.”
Following through, he applied and was accepted to Cleveland Chiropractic College. Hunter never looked back.
“I like that chiropractors practice non-surgical, conservative care,” Hunter says. “Being aligned prevents injuries because your body can perform to the best of its possibilities.”
After graduation, he was eager to get his practice. But, where?
“The key was finding the right place,” he says. “I wanted to join a practice with lots of opportunity for future growth—in Tulsa.”
That Tulsa part was critical to Hunter because his fiancé, Diane, is a University of Tulsa nutritionist. Then there’s the fact that his whole family lives within ten minutes of each other in the Tulsa area.
A Google search of “Tulsa Chiropractors” led him to Tulsa Spine and Rehab. What he found was an opportunity to work in the kind of collaborative environment he’d hoped for.
“After visiting with Doctor Riley, I felt an immediate fit,” says Hunter. “Then, I kept crossing paths with people we knew in common—things just kept lining up. It was a God thing.”
“Hunter adds nicely to our team of integrated specialists,” says Doctor Sean Riley. “We’re delighted to welcome Doctor Johnson to the Tulsa Spine and Rehab team.”
