Meet Dr. Justin Tretera

Dr. Justin TreteraFor Dr. Tretera, the most rewarding aspect of being a chiropractor is empowering his patients. “I am really good at educating my patients on their injury, exactly what’s going on, and allowing them to understand it more to take control of their own health.”

Choosing the Chiropractic Path

During his freshman year at The Citadel, Dr. Tretera played football and struggled with low back pain. “I came across a chiropractor in the town who helped me with my lower back pain. And I knew that entering the healthcare field and becoming involved with sports medicine would be a passion of mine.”

In 2013, Dr. Tretera graduated with a B.S. in Exercise Science and attended Palmer Chiropractic College in Florida. He earned his Doctor of Chiropractic in 2017 and is licensed to practice in both Georgia and South Carolina.

Dr. Tretera loves focusing on the sports medicine side of chiropractic.

I truly believe that with chiropractic, we can help the body heal over time. By combining exercises and stretches with chiropractic, you can truly see the long-term benefits of what we do here at our office.

Ensuring Patients Feel Comfortable

One of the things that patients often notice about Dr. Tretera is his smile, which puts people at ease. “Many people don’t exactly know what they’re getting into when they come to a chiropractor, and I feel like I lighten the room—brighten the mood.” Dr. Tretera also explains everything step by step and ensures that patients understand exactly what’s happening.


The Power of Preventative Care

Dr. Tretera emphasizes that chiropractic care is preventive medicine and can help keep people healthy. “As far as the healthcare field, we recommend you come and see us first for any ailments, and we can take care of those before they get any more serious.”

Fun, Faith, and Family

Outside the practice, Dr. Tretera regularly hits the gym, which is his passion. He also loves playing video games and golfing. Growing up in a Christian household, he is strong in his morals and beliefs and attends church on Sundays at Connection Church in Statesboro.

I’ve had a really strong and supportive real family, and then the family I’ve created here has also supported me and all my endeavors.
