Dr. Justin Klein is a Washington, DC native and life-long student of health, healing and human performance. As a young athlete (baseball, soccer, wrestling), multiple concussions and ankle injuries led him to his own personal kinesthetic awareness. His desire to understand the nervous system and prevention of injury led him to study physical fitness, nutrition, human structure and optimal functional movement. He took a special interest in anatomy, physiology, and neurology, and when he realized that chiropractic was the art, science and philosophy of the nervous system, he never looked back. He graduated with a Bachelor's Degree 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 also an Instructor of Original Strength, a restorative movement system which engages one of the most powerful systems of our unique human brain, the vestibular system, which helps greatly to improve clinical outcomes.
Dr. Klein has worked with thousands of people all over the world, from desk jockeys to linebackers, and just hours after delivery to 101 years young. His experiences traveling 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. When 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.
Dr. Klein is an appointed Member of the DC Board of Chiropractic with the DC Department of Health, and he is also the President and Founder of the Got Your Back Foundation, 501(c)3.
