Dr. Justin Klein
CEO / Chiropractor
Dr. Justin Klein is a Washington, DC native and life-long student of health, healing and human performance. As a young athlete, injuries led him to his own personal kinesthetic awareness. His desire to understand injury prevention led him to study physical fitness, nutrition, human structure and optimal function. He took a special interest in anatomy, physiology, and biology, and when he discovered that chiropractic was the art, science and philosophy of the nervous system, he never turned back. He graduated with a BS in Kinesiology from the University of Maryland, College Park in 2003 and finished cum laude from the University of Bridgeport, College of Chiropractic in 2008.
His experiences are unique, and have motivated him to become one of a handful of visionaries who strive to shift the paradigm of physical medicine. Dr. Klein continues to evolve through his study of Chiropractic BioPhysics, the chiropractic specialty of structural corrective care of the spine and human form. He is currently a Certified Basic CBP Practitioner, and is working towards his Advanced Certification in 2015.
Dr. Klein has worked with thousands of people, from Idaho to India, desk jockeys to linebackers, and from 2 days old to 101 years young. His experiences around the world have helped to create his philosophy of total health and wellness, and his dedication to change the way we think about human medicine has led to the creation of a culture of movement and structural awareness. He believes that we can improve our health by learning how our own bodies work, and if we focus on the positive (movement and love) vs the negative (pain and fear), our perspective of health and human performance can and will improve significantly. Education is the key at Got Your Back Total Health. In our culture we create a comfortable space to provide that education so that our patients can make healthy decisions for themselves and their loved ones.
