Dr. Herbert Gessler, DC

Dr. Gessler is local resident from the south hills of Pittsburgh, PA. He grew up in Venetia, and attended Peters Township High School. After graduation, he attended Washington and Jefferson College in Washington, PA, pursuing a degree in English literature and a minor in psychology. Upon graduation, he attended California University of Pennsylvania to finish up his pre med classes with the intent of becoming a ophthalmologist. After completing an internship at Mercy hospital in Pittsburgh, PA, he was accepted into an osteopathic program in Erie.

The summer before he left for school, he suffered from a severe ankle injury resulting in a brace and physical therapy. After completing the therapy walking was still difficult. He then sought out treatment from a chiropractor. After having the ankle adjusted, the pain was gone.

Dr Gessler then declined his acceptance to osteopathic school and applied to Palmer College of Chiropractic to pursue a career as a chiropractor.

Dr Gessler graduated cum laude from Palmer College of Chiropractic in 2008. He joined another practice after graduation where he practiced for 7 years. He then decided to leave the practice and open his own practice in the south hills of Pittsburgh in November of 2015.

Dr Gessler utilizes a variety of adjusting techniques including: diversified, gonsted and activator. He also utilizes techniques like stretching and muscle retraining to benefit the adjustments. He also practiced applied kinesiology (AK) and nueroemotional technique (NET) to better serve his patients.
