Dr. Gorman was born and raised in the Poconos.  He grew up playing sports such as baseball, hockey, tennis, volleyball and bowling and used chiropractic care to keep him competitive on the field.  When not helping patients he may be found working out at the gym, riding his bicycle and spending time with his wife and kids.

How tissue work and chiropractic work together
For the purpose of this analogy, Imagine your muscle as a bungee cord. The bungee cord starts on one bone, and inserts onto another. Muscle contraction, is when the bungee cord is pulled tight and causes movement. If your muscles are chronically tight, it can cause chronic tension on the skeletal system. When Soft Tissue work is introduced, especially prior to a chiropractic adjustment the effects of both the soft tissue work and chiropractic work combined create a greater effect than one of those disciplines alone.
