Dr. Gorlesky grew up in Savannah, Georgia enjoying its rich colonial history and unique culture. His college education was interrupted by four years of service in the US Army volunteering for two tours in South Vietnam and fourteen months in Germany. His time in Germany was to recover from the injuries he sustained during his first tour. After his second tour he returned stateside and while waiting in the airport heard the TV report that Armstrong had walked on the Moon. Returning to college and civilian life he went through six years of VA care that allowed his back to progressively deteriorate and was repeatedly given the recommendation for surgery. Just prior to graduation he was taken to a chiropractor for treatment by a classmate. He was blown away by the ability of the body to heal, if given the chance. After only a few weeks of chiropractic care he was “like new” again and enjoying life without limitations. He enrolled and was accepted at the Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa.

Dr. Jack Gorlesky, DC, has been treating patients since graduating from the Palmer College of Chiropractic with honors in 1978. In November of 1978, he founded Gorlesky Chiropractic Center in Wake Forest, NC now known as The Brain & Chronic Conditions Center.

Dr. Jack Gorlesky is a graduate of the American Functional Neurology Institute (AFNI) and is also certified in neurofeedback through the AFNI. He was certified in energetic acupuncture by the Acupuncture Society of America. He regularly attends post-graduate educational seminars on topics such as functional nutrition, functional medicine, and Carrick Institute for functional neurology. He loves treating neurological and metabolic imbalances that affect the body and create a multitude of health problems.

Dr. Gorlesky enjoys living an active lifestyle outdoors, as well as, pursuing a clean and healthy lifestyle with his partner Dr. Shelly Dranko. He likes spending time with his three sons and two grandsons when not traveling. << Read Less
