Dr. Gregg Gerstin

Meet Dr. Gregg Gerstin

Dr. Gregg Gerstin is the lead chiropractor at Align Wellness Center, in Northbrook, Il. He has been providing chiropractic care for the north shore of Chicago-land for over 18 years and is Advanced Certified in Chiropractic Biophysics (CBP). He received his bachelor’s from the University of Michigan in kinesiology where he also worked with the athletic teams as a student athletic trainer.

His passion for helping spinal deformities and figuring out the blockage that prevent people from healing developing their health has caused him to become a Scolibrace provider, a true three-dimensional solution for spinal deformities for scoliosis, hyper-kyphosis, and advanced spinal issues. However, he prefers to help find this deformities early.

He works with patients from as young as one day old to as old as 99, helping them to remove the blockages in their health and achieve optimal health and wellness.

Welcome to Align Wellness Center, we want to be your Northbrook chiropractor. Our office helps patients with back pain, neck pain, headaches and sciatica each and every day. If you, or someone you love is suffering from one of these conditions, we can help!

We specialize in spinal rehabilitation, whiplash treatment and posture correction. Additionally, our cold laser provides relaxing and soothing treatments for tight and tender muscles. Our practice utilizes multiple chiropractic adjusting techniques, which gives us the ability to tailor our approach to your specific needs and concerns.

We provide rehabilitation services too, that’s where we build up the surrounding muscles in your spine to help support and maintain your spinal adjustments. Exercises strengthen and support weakened areas of the spine, and stretches release tight areas. By combining chiropractic adjustments and exercise therapy we get superior results. This synergy allows us to get results with tough neck and back pain.

Dr. Greg and his team have been working with me to get my back back into the correct posture so that I can avoid having to have any more back surgeries and can increase my quality of living and lessen the pain that I’ve lived with for so long.

I was desperate for relief. Upon entering Align, the mood and energy was different than anywhere I had been previously. Everyone was upbeat and friendly.

SoftWave FAQs

  • What results should I expect from SoftWave Therapy?

    If you are a candidate for treatment, SoftWave therapy can provide both immediate and long-lasting results. After one SoftWave session, patients typically experience a 20-50% reduction in pain and improvement in mobility, lasting from a few hours to several days. Some patients require multiple sessions before experiencing improvement.

    To determine if SoftWave is a suitable treatment for you, schedule a $69 New Patient Appointment, where you will receive one SoftWave treatment session, and the provider will assess whether further treatment is appropriate.

  • What is the SoftWave treatment process like?

    SoftWave is a fast and convenient non-invasive procedure that usually lasts 10-15 minutes, with no downtime required for recovery.

Most patients feel a gentle tapping or pulsing sensation, while some patients may experience mild pain or discomfort. The use of anesthesia or numbing agents is not necessary. Effective communication with the provider during treatment can help identify treatment hotspots and track progress.
