Experience

CEO at Gillman Chiropractic, PC (Opened in 1991; Incorporated 2011)
Dr. Gillman completed his Chiropractic Sports Medicine specialty degree in 2004 through the American Chiropractic Board of Sports Physicians. His practice utilizes modern, evidence-guided, patient-centered care for athletes and non-athletes with musculoskeletal conditions. Patients undergo a thorough physical examination of spine and extremities encompassing orthopedic and neurologic testing, functional movement, and strength assessment. He provides manual joint manipulation to the spine and/or extremities, advanced soft-tissue therapy procedures, and exercise training. Graston Technique, FAKTR, RockTape (kinesiologic tape) techniques, and deep-tissue/fascial manipulation are some of the methods regularly used. Lumbar spine decompression is available via hydraulic distraction tables. Both pre-fabricated and custom foot orthotic fabrication is available.
