Dr. Michael Gergovich
At the age of 12, Dr. Mike suffered a back injury playing basketball with his friends. After countless trips to the doctor, his back pain never seemed to go away. Finally, his parents decided to take him to a Chiropractor. After his first adjustment, he could feel his pain already slowly fading away.
This was when Dr. Mike decided he wanted to become a Chiropractor. After graduating from LaSalle-Peru High School, Dr. Mike attended Illinois Valley Community College for his prerequisite courses. He majored in biology at Loyola University in Chicago before moving to Davenport, Iowa to attend the prestigious Palmer College of Chiropractic.
During his time at Palmer, Dr. Mike had the opportunity to study abroad in Vietnam and provide Chiropractic care to the local residents. He spent two weeks there getting to know these patients, learning about the culture and visiting the country.
Dr. Mike graduated with his Doctorate of Chiropractic in 2010 and interned back in Peru, Illinois. He moved to Naperville and served the southwest suburbs for four years before making the decision to move back home to the Illinois Valley and take over for Dr. William Judge at Judge Chiropractic Center.
The practice officially changed to Gergovich Family Chiropractic in December 2018.
