About Dr. Justin Ard


Dr. Justin

Dr. Justin started his journey as a chiropractor in his home town of Murray, KY. While playing college football, he actually coached a middle school basketball program for three years where he coached his chiropractor and mentors son. While his parents both work in the medical field, after seeing the miracles and health chiropractic care produced, he immediately felt called to join this mission.


He received a Pre-Med degree from Murray State University in 2006. During his undergrad years, Dr. Justin was a four year member of the Murray State football team where he earned first team all-conference honors and went on to play football professionally after college. After periods of time playing professional football, he then went on to pursue his dream of being a Chiropractor. He was accepted and attended one of the best chiropractic schools in the country at Life University in Marietta, GA. During his time in school, he was educated in the latest and most up to date techniques of the chiropractic profession. Working with many diverse groups including children, families, and pregnancy, he was able to learn and master many different techniques in order to take care of almost everyone that seeks chiropractic care. Due to his diverse sports background, Dr. Justin also takes care of many athletes who seek to improve their performance on the field as well as their health off the field.

Justin like anybody, Dr. Justin himself has overcome health problems of his own. At 6 feet 5 inches tall and playing offensive line in college, weighed about 320 pounds, while playing football after college, he gained some more muscle and weight played at 340 lbs. When he stopped playing football to go back to school to become a doctor, as someone who was only taught to eat like an offensive lineman and workout like an offensive lineman, sitting back in a classroom 40 to 50 hours a week allowed him to gain about 20 more pounds over 4 years (which is the average american). While he was receiving chiropractic care, a mentor taught him the principles of true health and optimal healing that he teaches today. Dr. Justin himself lost over 80 pounds in a 6 months period and is down 90 pounds total using the exact principles he is so dedicated to teaching.

Dr. Justin is not only a dedicated chiropractor, but first in his life is God and then his family. His wife Pilar, is a software engineer and also received her degree from Murray State University where they met. They have been happily married for since 2005 and have three children, Jackson, Tiago and Brianna. Family time is extremely important to Dr Justin. He and his family can commonly be seen out in the community enjoying activities like the zoo or fishing at the lake. He is also an avid outdoorsman as he spends a lot of time fishing, hunting, and camping with his family.
