Erika E. Henry, DC is a native of Michigan. She graduated from Siena Heights University, Adrian MI in 2007 with a Bachelors of Science in Biology. Afterwards, she moved to Atlanta to focus on her post-graduate education at Life University: a natural choice as she had been under chiropractic care since infancy. She received her Doctor of Chiropractic degree in 2011 from Life University, Marietta GA. With a passion for women’s health, her research on Infertility and Chiropractic was published in the Journal of Pediatric, Maternal & Family Health.
Through Dr. Erika’s professional journey, she has served all ages including infants through geriatrics for the management of a wide array of issues including headaches, neck pain, upper back pain, sciatica and of course maintenance or wellness care. She has been able to help others achieve their health goals through an optimal functioning nervous system and a well-adjusted spine, balancing the brain-body connection. Regular chiropractic adjustments given by Dr. Erika may include manual manipulation, Activator protocol and Webster Technique, all of which help to prevent pain and injury but also promote optimum health & wellness.
Dr. Erika has been practicing in Sandy Springs since 2012 and opened The Joint in Sandy Springs as the Clinic Director in March 2014. She is very excited to be delivering affordable chiropractic care by practicing at The Joint: Sandy Springs. With our convenient hours and friendly atmosphere, she looks forward to serving you and your family soon.
Dr. Erika’s favorite quote is one dating back to 400BC credited to Hippocrates “Look well to the spine for the cause of disease.”
Dr. Clyde Jean has been with The Joint Chiropractic family of local healthcare providers since 2015, and has been the local chiropractor at the Sandy Springs clinic location since 2018. A graduate of State University of New York at New Paltz, he received a bachelor’s degree in organismal and environmental biology before getting a doctorate of chiropractic from Life University.
“The best thing about being in the chiropractic field is sports enhancement,” Dr. Jean says. “The thing I love about this field is that it’s drug-free.”
Raised in California and New York, Dr. Jean has worked in Atlanta, Cumming, and Marietta prior to Sandy Springs.
When he has spare time away from his teacher-of-the-year wife and their son and daughter, Dr. Jean enjoys dirt biking, mountain biking, hiking, personal training, competition shooting, and playing lacrosse.
It was an incident on a bicycle that Dr. Jean discovered his calling. “I had a bad mountain biking accident and was in pretty rough shape,” he says. “My condition was going nowhere with traditional medicine. A chiropractor got me back to health and it changed my path from going to veterinarian school to chiropractic.”
For more than 30 years Dr. Jean has been involved in sports, ranging from personal and team trainer and chiropractor to coach to athlete. “I understand the mechanisms of injury along with the treatment and rehabilitative process,” he says. “That’s why I like working at the Sandy Springs location so much, because there are a lot of athletic patients who want to excel.”
In Case You Didn’t Know
Dr. Jean says the one thing he always has in his refrigerator is almond milk: “It’s versatile for shakes.”
If he could bring together any four characters from history to comprise his dream dinner party, Dr. Jean would have plenty to talk about. “I would invite legendary UCLA basketball coach John Wooden because he’s a master motivator,” he says. “Alexander Dumas is my favorite author, Anthony Hopkins is my favorite actor, and I’d like psychiatrist Sigmund Freud to pick his brain.”
The coolest thing that Dr. Jean has done, he says, is downhill mountain biking “because of the adrenaline rush.”
Dr. Kevin Wood became part of The Joint Chiropractic’s team of local healthcare providers in 2020 when he began serving residents in the Atlanta area, where he continues doing the work he finds so gratifying.
“The best thing about being a chiropractor is helping people,” he says. “I love seeing people improve their lives.”
Dr. Wood -- you can also call him Dr. Ryan -- is a product of Jackson, Tenn., and in addition to Atlanta he has worked previously in the Florida cities of Tampa, Fort Pierce, Fort Lauderdale, Miami, and West Palm Beach.
He and his wife have a son and daughter, as well as a toy Maltese named Lola who runs the household. In his spare time, Dr. Wood enjoys music, working out, and doing telemedicine consultations for clients that include surgeons and an attorney. He also has a license to practice law in Florida.
Before getting his doctorate of chiropractic from Life Chiropractic College, he attended Excelsior College, where he got a bachelor of science degree, and St. Thomas University School of Law in Miami.
“Having been born with foot issues, I was originally going to be an orthopedic surgeon, but I went to visit my brother at chiropractic school and found it intriguing,” Dr. Wood says. “I decided to go to chiropractic school instead. Because of my foot, I’ve basically been in healthcare in some form for my entire life.”
His role as healthcare provider has given him the opportunity to have a real impact on the lives of patients, including those who aren’t his own. One stands out while in consultation with a surgeon. “The most memorable was a lady who suffered in pain for 10 years and was depressed and crying and could not function,” he says. “On doing a review of her MRI to determine the need for surgery, I found two subtle disc protrusions that were indirectly causing spinal cord pressure. The day after surgery she was able to walk again. She got her life back, and she wrote me a letter that put me in tears just hearing this great news for her.”
In Case You Didn’t Know
Dr. Wood says eggs are the one thing he always keeps stocked in his refrigerator: “They’re a great source of protein and they’re needed for so many recipes.”
If he could bring together any four people from history for his ideal dinner party, Dr. Wood would send invitations to “Warren Buffett so I could pick his brain on investing, and Tony Robbins to pick his brain on motivation,” he says. “I would also include Presidents George Washington and Abraham Lincoln to pick their brains about courage and persistence.”
Dr. Wood credits his first college biology professor with giving him some valuable advice. “He told me, ‘Don’t worry about studying to just try to pass a test, learn the material so that you can recall it forever,’” he says. “There is a difference.”
