Doctor of Align Wellness Center

About Dr. Gregg Gerstin

A life-changing experience led Gregg Gerstin to pursue a career in chiropractic care.

A native of Marietta, Georgia, Dr. Gerstin began to notice severe allergy symptoms during his freshman year at the University of Michigan. Unaccustomed to the climate of Ann Arbor, Gerstin experienced difficulty breathing and sinus congestion that got so bad that at times he could barely talk. Dr. Gerstin got a prescription for allergy medication that he relied upon to get through his freshman year.

That all changed the following year. Dr. Gerstin — then a sophomore athletic trainer for the Michigan track and field team — had forgotten to take his medication with him to a weekend-long track meet. By the end of the first day of the outdoor meet, he was absolutely miserable, so much so that the team’s coaches thought he had an illness that might spread to the athletes. The team chiropractor thought he could help, though.

“He told me that there was stress on my spine, on my nervous system, that was causing my body to overreact to the environment,” Gerstin recalls. “He said if I removed the stress, my body would respond to the environment, and I’d feel and work better.”

Figuring he didn’t have anything to lose, Dr. Gerstin took the team chiropractor up on the offer of care. Within a few weeks, Dr. Gerstin noticed his sinuses had cleared up; within two months, he stopped taking allergy medication altogether, and has never needed it since.

From that day on, Dr. Gerstin committed himself to understanding the science behind chiropractic care and why it works. He has dedicated his life to helping others experience improved quality of life. He is passionate about educating his community about how powerful the human body is, especially the connection between the brain and the rest of the body.

During his 15-plus years of practice, Dr. Gerstin has helped countless patients regain their quality of life through the use of chiropractic treatment methods. By treating interferences of the spine, he has helped patients achieve freedom from chronic pain, headaches, migraines, sleep disorders, tingling extremities and more.

“Being able to give people their lives back has been a refreshing energizer for me,” Dr. Gerstin says. “It keeps me passionate about I do.”

Dr. Gerstin serves on the board of the Northbrook Chamber of Commerce. He lives with his wife and two children in Highland Park.
