Meet the Doctor

Herbert Gessler is a PITTSBURGH chiropractor who serves PITTSBURGH and the surrounding communities in PA.

Dr. Herbert Gessler uses chiropractic care to improve the health and wellness in all areas of patient's lives, whether they are having problems with back pain or neck pain, or just want to start feeling better when they wake up in the morning. Dr. Gessler takes a "whole person" approach in chiropractic care, which means looking for the underlying causes of disease, discomfort, and pain, as opposed to just treating the symptoms. Many seemingly unrelated symptoms often arise from imbalances in the spinal column, and Dr. Gessler will be able to determine the root of the pain and create a personalized chiropractic and wellness plan to suit each patient's individual needs. Under the supervision and care of our caring and skilled chiropractor, patients report higher functioning in all areas of their lives.

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.
