Hello I’m Dr Justin Henry
Meet Dr Justin Henry:
It is with excitement and thankfulness that I celebrate my 12-year anniversary in Chiropractic practice as well as the second anniversary of Back-to-Life Chiropractic under my care. I have worked in Queensburgh for 12 years and took over the Ballito practice in March 2020 from Dr de Beer and it has been a blessing! I have been welcomed by the Dolphin Coast community and have enjoyed working in this fast-growing town! I look forward to many years ahead (I am not emigrating!). I really enjoy my work and engaging with patients and so have a high regard for good bedside manner. My patients’ health is my priority and will always come first with careful treatment and management and referral to other health care professionals as necessary. I believe in holistic musculoskeletal care and not just joint manipulation and so my treatment is all rounded, hence addressing all relevant aspects of health.
A little about me…
I grew up in East London and after matriculating from Hudson Park High initially studied a year at Rhodes for a possible career in veterinary science. I soon realised my real passion was in treating people and was introduced to the world of Chiropractic through my father who had had successful treatments for his back. On acceptance into the Chiropractic programme I moved to Durban to begin my Chiropractic studies!
I am a family man and am married to my beautiful wife and we have a son. I am passionate about sport and exercise, and health in general. I love the beach, bush and berg and regularly enjoy surfing, hiking, game drives, tennis, braaing, and watching the Springboks play rugby – especially when they win! I love hanging out with people and being a part of my local community
As an avid sportsman and fan, I have a particular interest in treating sports injuries and seeing sportsmen and women excel through optimal health and fitness. I am delighted to announce that I have completed my internationally recognised sports Chiro course (FICS-ICSC). Treating sporting injuries has become commonplace in practice over the past 10 years and I have worked with many athletes as well as with the Queensburgh and Dolphins rugby sides. I prefer working in combination with other health professionals as a team to bring about the best overall result for the patient.
I would like to encourage you to continue training or to start to train ASAP as it will change your health and life forever, especially after this Covid slump. A warning though is to go back to training slowly if you have had Covid as many patients around the world have had serious side-effects because of an over-zealous return to training.
These side-effects have included long term health issues or even loss of life due to respiratory or cardiovascular issues. Please get in touch with me or another health care practitioner if you are unsure about when to return, and how soon to return to exercise.
I have continued to further my studies within the scope of paediatric Chiropractic and am enjoying treating new-borns and children – especially since my wife and I became parents. Thorough assessment and care of kids is paramount as a child’s bodily development is dependent on correct form and function. Children should be assessed from birth and monitored to ensure optimal movement, posture and development.
