Welcome to Spine and Sports Chiropractic
What is OUR brand of chiropractic healthcare? Simple. We diagnose and treat musculoskeletal conditions of the spine and extremities. If it involves joints, muscles or tendons, it’s our domain. Neck and lower back pain, headaches, sciatica, disc problems and nerve entrapments, as well as sports related conditions such as shoulder rotator cuff pain, achilles tendinitis, and knee pain are some examples of what we address on a daily basis. With a Doctor of Chiropractic degree and a Chiropractic Sports Medicine degree, we are expert in two arenas: Spine and Sport Medicine.
A complete record of clinical findings and treatment plan is sent to the referring doctor and/or primary care physician. This way, referring doctors are informed about their patient’s condition and care.
As a spine care specialist, Dr. Gillman provides a careful medical history and thorough examination of the spine. Based on training and experience, and guided by current clinical literature, we effectively address spine problems, and know when it is appropriate (or not) to order X-rays or MRI, or to refer to other specialists such as a surgeon or physiatrist. We treat spine conditions with a combination of procedures including highly skilled joint manipulation and both hands-on and instrument-assisted soft tissue therapy. We also provide exercises and employ physiotherapy modalities (e.g. ultrasound or cold laser therapy) when appropriate. See our products/services tab to learn more.
Dr. Gillman is a Diplomate of the American Chiropractic Board of Sports Physicians (DACBSP®). This post graduate Chiropractic Sports Medicine degree is the industry’s benchmark. It comprises 300 course hours including radiology, orthopedics, neurology, emergency procedures, biomechanics, exercise training, nutrition, athletic taping, custom foot orthotics prescription, and a minimum of 100 field hours with sports teams and other sports venues. It also requires two written board exams, a challenging practical exam, and publishing a clinical journal article. The DACBSP® education assures athletes, coaches, and trainers that the doctor has met a high level of competency in diagnosis and treatment of sports injuries. In other words, if you are an athlete, you’re in the right place. Dr. Gillman has examined and treated countless athletes, at Olympic-level venues as well as here at home, from Ironman Triathletes, elite gymnasts, competitive CrossFitters to working weekday warriors.
