We recently welcomed patients of his practice into our duncan chiropractic group family.

Dr. Carlini shares his story about why he became a chiropractic physician.

"I grew up in a downriver community of Detroit and after graduating from High School, my plan was to follow in the footsteps of my parents and become a school teacher.  I graduated from EMU with a degree in education and began teaching in Taylor Public Schools for five years.  Along with coaching a number of sports, I thought that my course in life was all set.  During that time, I started seeing a chiropractor for treatment of a chronic neck injury as a result of playing organized hockey since my youth. 

During that chiropractic treatment program, I came to realize that my chronic ear infections, that had been a part of my life for years, were gone.  It was at that time that I decided to change my path in life and become a chiropractor.”

Aside from being a highly experienced chiropractor, Dr. Carlini enjoys spending time with his family, including his wife and two daughters. He has raised two daughters in Brighton Schools who were both members of the highly competitive Brighton Pom Team and graduates of Brighton High School. He has been involved with his Church’s youth group for many years.  

Dr. Gary Carlini is dedicated to our patients and their pain relief. Call or contact us today to schedule your appointment.
