John H. Juhl, D.O.

“One of the things I really enjoy about practicing osteopathic medicine is that people usually go away feeling better.”

Dr Juhl is Board Certified in Family Practice and Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine, with an added Certificate of Competency from the Cranial Academy. He served his residency in Family Practice at St Peter’s Hospital in New Brunswick, New Jersey, after completing a rotating internship at St. Clare’s Hospital and Health Center in New York City. He received his degree in Osteopathy from UMDNJ School of Osteopathic Medicine, achieving honors in anatomy, biochemistry and behavioral science after graduating Summa Cum Laude in Chemistry from Hunter College in New York.

Dr. Juhl is a member of the American Osteopathic Association, The Cranial Academy, the American Academy of Osteopathy, Physicians for a National Health Care Plan, and Morningside Monthly Quaker Meeting.

He has presented numerous lectures and papers throughout the country on osteopathy and spinal dynamics, osteoporosis, the impact of helicobacter pylori on postmenopausal women, and vitamin D deficiency states. He has appeared as a guest on numerous broadcast, cable and radio shows, and served as editorial consultant/peer reviewer for the Federal Government’s Clinical Practice Guidelines on Low Back Pain, published in 1994.

Dr Juhl’s earlier background as a Liberal Arts major, with emphases on literature, philosophy and the performing arts, and his eight year career as a modern dancer were worlds apart from the study of medicine. Yet, he has managed to integrate those aspects into an ideology encompassing the whole person in body, mind and spirit. Dr Juhl’s dietary, nutritional, mental and physical exercise approaches provide a full complement to the practice’s broad range of osteopathic techniques. Over the last five years, an old but powerful technique for ligament reconstruction called Prolotherapy has been added to the armamentarium. Currently, assessment of autonomic nervous system balance through measurement of Heart Rate Variability is being explored. In the next five years, Neurobiofeedback will be introduced.

As quoted on “Alive and Wellness”, Dr Juhl stated, “One of the things I really enjoy about practicing osteopathic medicine is that people usually go away feeling better.” It is that level of kindness and caring which is so apparent in his approach to medicine and to life.
