Dr. Gertner received his bachelors degree in biology from Hofstra University in Hempstead, NY before moving to Atlanta, GA to attend Life University. Before graduation, Dr.Gertner had a severe injury to his lower back. For more than a year he was adjusted using every traditional chiropractic procedure available but still suffered with severe pain. After almost giving up on a profession that he spent the last 4 years dedicating his life to, Dr. Gertner finally met a chiropractor who changed his life. The chiropractor specialized in an advanced spinal correction procedure developed by NUCCA (National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association). Immediately after the first visit, Dr. Gertner began to feel the amazing results of Upper Cervical care. His body began to “heal itself” and the relentless pain that had plagued him now quickly left his body.
Dr. Gertner spent the next two years mentoring from one of the best Upper Cervical doctors; learning in the same office that helped change his life. After two years, Dr. Gertner returned home to New York to open his own office. He currently is one of less than 300 NUCCA chiropractors worldwide.
