Dr. Howard Johnson
I grew up in Big Lake, Minnesota where I enjoyed hunting, swimming and boating with friends. I played football and ran track in High School. My family has a long history of service in the United States Military so after High School I enlisted in the Marine Corp where I served as a Basic Electronics instructor and then worked in the field in electronic repair for ground to air communications. I studied Martial arts and learned to scuba dive while stationed in Okinawa, Japan. I was physically beat up by that time and started treating for migraine and back pain with a Chiropractor while attending college in St. Cloud, Minnesota. The results of chiropractic care were very impressive, as I no longer needed to take medications for those issues. I decided that I wanted to help others the same way I had been helped. I graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in 1978. I met my wife, Rhonda, while attending Palmer college and we have been married 42 years. We have two daughters who gave us four wonderful grandchildren who constantly surprise us with their achievements and with the love they show us. I have worked with the local Chamber of Commerce and was in Rotary for many years, hosting several exchange students. I have assisted on both the State board, giving the Chiropractic license tests, as well as more than 20 years assisting with the National Chiropractic Board examinations. I have also been a consultant and a Director on a multi-state Chiropractic management corporation board for the past 19 years. My hobbies include yard work, working with my hands, hunting, traveling and getting together with friends from high school and the Marine Corps. Some of the most meaningful events in my life have been caring for my patients. My patients have influenced and shaped my practice greatly. I have, as of April 1st, 2019, joined Dr. Mychaela Harp who owns Power Within Chiropractic of Elk River. Power Within Chiropractic is in the same location as my previous office, only the name has changed.

Dr. Mikala’s love for sports and healthcare stemmed from an active upbringing in Minnesota where she played competitive soccer through college. Rehabilitating from a variety of injuries with athletic trainers, physical therapists, and chiropractors inspired her to pursue a career helping others in similar situations improve their health and wellness.
Outside the office, she enjoys spending time with her husband and dog, playing competitive soccer, traveling, hiking, and drinking coffee.
A visit with Dr. Mikala will consist of a thorough history and examination followed by a combination of chiropractic adjustments, soft tissue therapies, and rehabilitative exercises individually tailored to reach each patient’s goals.
