Dr. Brock Pluth became interested in Chiropractic Medicine through personal experience. He played most sports competitively growing up, but only played baseball and football throughout his high school years. He was an All-State selectee in baseball during the summer of 2012, and a member of the State Championship baseball team in 2013. He sustained knee, shoulder, and low back injuries at the end of his high school career. Chiropractic and physical therapy led to his recovery, and guided him in the direction to pursue a career in the chiropractic profession.

Dr. Pluth is passionate about treating and preventing injuries for patients of all ages to live a life of optimal health. Driving his practice are beliefs in the chiropractic approach, along with muscle and other soft tissue techniques. Dr. Pluth also uses the Graston Technique, trigger point release, and dynamic exercise therapy to improve a patient’s overall health and well-being.  

Dr. Pluth is a graduate of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree. To obtain his Doctorate of Chiropractic, he went on to Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa, the oldest and biggest chiropractic school in the world.

In his free time, Brock enjoys working out, golfing, and cheering on Chicago sports and his Illini. Dr. Pluth enjoys the nutrition and healthy eating habits that surround living a well-balanced life, and is knowledgeable in nutritional and diet counseling.
