Justin Youssef

Dr Justin Youssef

Chiropractor

Dr. Justin Youssef has always had a passion for the science of the human body and decided that a natural and conservative approach to a healthy body is one that made sense, and so decided to study Chiropractic.

Dr. Justin really understood the power of Chiropractic when he had a motorbike accident in his first year of studying and injured his hip. This is when Justin found his way to Chiropractic Solutions and was analysed and treated back to health, as well as mentored by our very own Dr. Neil Gomez.
