Welcome To Our Practice
With a Doctor of Chiropractic degree and a Chiropractic Sports Medicine degree, we are expert in two arenas: Spine and Sport Medicine.
FOR PHYSICIANS AND PATIENTS: WHAT TO EXPECT
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, TMJ disorder, nerve entrapment, as well as sports-related conditions such as ankle sprains, achilles tendinitis, shoulder impingement and knee pain are some examples of what we address on a daily basis. We often confer, or "round table" care with other specialists on our patient's behalf, such as discussing MRI findings, or determining if a surgical consult is necessary.
As a spine care specialist, Dr. Gillman provides a careful medical history and thorough examination of the spine to effectively address spine problems, 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 will provide exercises and physiotherapy modalities (e.g. ultrasound or 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 paper in a clinical journal. DACBSP® 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 weekday warriors.
