Dr. Alex Grubish, DC
Dr. Alex is a motivated Twin Cities native with a variety of interests. As a toddler, he earned the nickname of “Robo-baby” because of his active nature. This followed him into his youth through his participation in skateboarding and hockey. He played hockey for 14 years, and during this time sustained a low back injury at the age of 14 while playing for his high school league. It was this experience that introduced Dr. Alex to the life-changing effects of chiropractic care. For a month of being injured, he was unable to run, kick a ball, or even perform the simple task of bending over. After exhausting his options in traditional healthcare without finding any solutions, Dr. Alex received care from a chiropractor who got him back on the ice in two weeks. It was that formative experience that led him to pursue a career in the health sciences.
After high school, Dr. Alex went on to attend the University of Minnesota – Duluth, where he obtained his Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science. After graduation, Dr. Alex decided to join the United States Army Corps of Engineers before attending chiropractic school at Northwestern. After beginning his studies at Northwestern, Dr. Alex became the president of the Veteran’s Club on campus and played a considerable role in advocating quality care for student veterans. While attending Northwestern, Dr. Alex also completed his Master of Science in Exercise Science at Concordia University – St. Paul. Obtaining this gave way to Dr. Alex writing his thesis on utilizing Jiu-Jitsu to manage PTSD symptoms in veterans, and now is an active member in the sport.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, Dr. Alex changed his perspective from the traditional approach of sports chiropractic to that of The Wellness Way. He discovered that the Swiss Watch principles developed by founder Dr. Patrick Flynn made sense to him, and he admired the values of the organization. Soon after, Dr. Alex obtained an internship under Dr. Patrick at the main office in Green Bay, WI during his final trimester of chiropractic school. Dr. Alex has always been fascinated by the “why” behind the occurrence of every disease and what can be done to restore function. In the spring of 2022, Dr. Alex graduated from Northwestern Health Sciences University with honors. The different perspective that Dr. Alex has learned through the Wellness Way has changed his life. As a sergeant, he always reminds his soldiers of General George S. Patton’s famous words: “if everyone is thinking alike, then somebody isn’t thinking.”
