Dr Michael Henry is the founder and Clinical Director of TexStar Chiropractic. His mission is to help the Greater Austin community achieve a better quality of life by providing access to high quality, safe, and effective treatment options for serious musculoskeletal conditions.
Dr Henry grew up in Manchaca, TX, just south of Austin. He and his wife Allie are the proud parents of three amazing children. He loves spending his time with his family hiking the Greenbelt, hunting, golfing, camping, or doing just about anything outdoors.
He graduated from the pre-med program at The University of Texas with a Bachelors in Kinesiology. While attending UT, he explored many different healthcare specialties including emergency medicine, orthopedic surgery, and family medicine before finally finding chiropractic medicine. He fell in love with chiropractic’s hands-on approach to finding and treating the root cause of a patient’s condition without resorting to pharmaceuticals made to cover up symptoms or invasive surgeries which often have poor long-term outcomes.
In 2009, he graduated from Parker University in Dallas with a Doctorate of Chiropractic. While in chiropractic school Dr Henry served as president of the Student Texas Chiropractic Association and was awarded a student leadership scholarship. In his last year of school, he was selected to participate in a competitive Clinic Abroad Program where he was able to practice at a community hospital in an underserved area of Mexico City. Dr Henry returned to Texas to complete a two-year associateship in Fort Worth with a large, multi-doctor clinic before moving back to the Austin area in 2011 to found TexStar Chiropractic.
He stays up to date on the latest treatment approaches and has advanced training in functional neurology, myo-neural re-education, and physical rehab techniques with a specific focus on low back and knee conditions.
Since founding TexStar, Dr Henry has served as a Designated Doctor for the Texas Department of Insurance. He was awarded the Texas Chiropractic Association's Legislative Leadership Award for his work at the capital to protect Texas citizens’ ability to access quality chiropractic care. In 2014 Dr Henry was named Texas Young Chiropractor of the Year by the Texas Chiropractic Association. In 2017 he was asked by Governor Abbot’s office to join the Texas Board of Chiropractic Examiners and was elected Vice President of the TBCE in 2019.
*Our two visit guarantee refers to our office policy, that if for any reason you do not see noticeable improvement in either your pain, function, or range of motion within the first two demo treatment sessions we will not take you on as a patient or recommend any further care in our office. We estimate our success rate is around 90% within one visit, so it is very rare that we have a patient not see improvement by the end of their 2nd treatment.
*The initial start up fee fee is based on an exam charge of $115 plus one set of x-rays if necessary at $68. If you elect to use health insurance the portion you pay may be lower than advertised. A report of findings is included in this exam charge. If our doctors feel that you do not need x-rays or x-rays of more than one body area are necessary, your cost may be different than that advertised. The two trial treatment sessions are for diagnostic purposes only and are included as part of the exam fee, therefore they will not be billed as a separate service. The trial treatment sessions will consist of one or more treatment options that our doctors think you will respond best to, delivered on two separate days. These prices are subject to change. All state and federal insurance and health care regulations and laws will be followed at all times by our clinic and staff.
