Dr. Aaron D. Tressler
Making Pittsburgh Healthy Podcast Host
Born and raised in Greensburg, PA, Dr. Tressler grew up as a lover of all things Pittsburgh! His love for the City of Champions extends beyond rooting for the Steelers on Sunday though. He envisions Pittsburgh to become the healthiest city in America and he won't stop fighting until we are!
Dr. Aaron D. Tressler's passion for natural health and healing extends back to childhood. Growing up, he suffered with chronic gastrointestinal issues, allergies and sinus problems. His struggles through sports injuries and back pain led him to his first chiropractic experience his senior year at Greensburg Salem High School. And then witnessing his father die from heart disease at age 50, he vowed to never allow this to happen to him and was determined to find an answer. Chiropractic care not only corrected his pain, but also his sickness, and he knew if it could change his life, it would also change the life of thousands of others.
After graduating from Greensburg Salem High School, he continued his education at Slippery Rock University in Health and Physical Education. A few years into teaching physical education, his passion for health grew and it was undeniable that his mission to change lives would be through chiropractic. As a Doctorate of Chiropractic graduate from Life University, Atlanta, GA in 1994, Dr. Tressler has spent the past 26+ years helping thousands of patients. Ranging from newborn to age 99, he specializes in not only reducing or eliminating their symptoms through chiropractic care, but also enhancing their overall quality of life through lifestyle changes such as diet, exercise, weight loss, and supplementation.
Dr. Tressler is the chiropractor and owner of In8Life, author of 5 health books, state representative for Chiropractic Fellowship of Pennsylvania, International Chiropractic Association member, Creator of IN8LIFE weight loss system, developer of The Chiropractic Authority coaching platform, and host of the Making Pittsburgh Healthy Podcast.
Living on a farm, east of Pittsburgh, with his wife, Gabrielle, Dr. Tressler enjoys an active and adventurous lifestyle consisting of competing in rugby, raising organic cows, sheep and chickens, and playing backyard sports with his 5 children and 3 grandchildren.
He was put to the test...
Continuing to play competitive rugby with 20-30 year olds, having an active farm, and exercising 5+ days per week, it's pretty obvious that he's quite active.
But…he's had to trust in this healing, having:
2 rotator cuff tears
Torn meniscus in right knee
Broken ribs (3 times)
Broken fingers, toes, sprains and strains
And the worst – Broken scapula at age 49
What he discovered through all of this was amazing. He healed up incredibly fast and it was because of the countless intentional choices he has been making for years to support his health!
Rotator Cuff Tears: healed in 2 weeks and was back to playing rugby
Scapula Fracture: in 2 ½ months, he ran a 5k race under 22 min, 5 months later, benched press 225 lbs, and played rugby in just 8 months. The doctors said it would take a year just to heal or even to do push-ups!!
We are created in God’s image and have amazing innate healing power to rejuvenate and repair for 80-120 years. It's up to us to utilize our resources to live the life we were intended.
