Meet Dr. Alex Cesal!

Dr. Cesal

Dr. Cesal attended Logan University in Chesterfield, Missouri where he earned his Doctor of Chiropractic degree in 2021. While at Logan, in addition to his core Chiropractic curriculum, he was part of the Rehab to Performance and Motion Palpation Clubs in an effort to best prepare himself to help his patients get healthy and stay healthy. Prior to entering Chiropractic School, he attended Central Michigan University and received a bachelor's degree in exercise science & kinesiology. While at CMU, Dr. Cesal was able to continue his lifelong passion for athletics and played club baseball for four years. (Fire up Chips!) 

Dr. Cesal is very family-oriented, which led him to his passion for Chiropractic and practicing in a family setting. His older brother was told after playing soccer that he would have pain in his ankle for years, which led his family to go to a chiropractor for a second opinion and to treat his ankle. After a few treatments, his older brother was back playing sports with no issues. Witnessing Chiropractic have such an impact on his family, he knew this was exactly the profession he wanted to be in. His passion is to give back to families, as the past chiropractor did for his family. This led Dr. Cesal to Grand Traverse Family Chiropractic, where he found a family-oriented practice excited to treat the whole community. 

Prior to joining Grand Traverse Family Chiropractic, Dr. Cesal worked at a family Chiropractic practice near St. Louis, Missouri and Scott Air Force Base in Illinois. He enjoyed giving back to those communities and providing care to the men and women who serve our Country. Before beginning his career in Chiropractic, Dr. Cesal worked in Hawaii, running and overseeing sports programs for local communities. This experience allowed him to serve many diverse people and populations through sports, further exemplifying his devotion to service, athletics, and healthy lifestyles. 

Dr. Cesal is excited to be back in his home state of Michigan and to get involved with the many activities Northern Michigan has to offer. He looks forward to serving Traverse City and the surrounding areas to the best of his ability and helping each patient live their life to the fullest!
