Our approach

Because back pain is so common, numerous products promise prevention or relief. But there's no definitive evidence that special shoes, shoe inserts, back supports, specially designed furniture or stress management programs can help.


Our protocol has allowed us to successfully treat patients suffering with Back Pain in our office. Because conditions vary from person to person we cannot tell you if our protocol will help you until we perform a thorough exam and X rays at our facility.

I love the family atmosphere and I would recommend them to anyone, I actually have my mom coming here and feel it would be beneficial to anyone.

Success Stories

I have spondylosis and a herniated disc and multiple things going on in my back and with the treatments he's provided he's done a world of wonder in helping me do day to day activities such as bending and walking etc. I’ve noticed a big improvement.

I started seeing Dr. Gorman 2 months ago with very intense low back and hip pain. I have been getting adjustments and shockwave treatment and its taken me from everyday pain that was especially worse in the mornings and evenings to being able to resume my normal activities and my previous running schedule. My pain has been at a zero of the last month of the treatment and I feel amazing, Im feeling young again!

II've worked a desk job for many years that it is required for me to sit down for 9 hours a day, maybe longer. I've suffered from pain in my neck, back, hips and shoulders for many years. Modern Health has helped me get rid of that pain with, laser, adjusting and lifestyle recommendations. I thank them very much for that.

Dr. Gorman has helped me in so many different ways. I came in and I was having back issues and I had surgery about a year before starting. It was a less invasive surgery and I’m so thankful I came in because he has helped me with several things. One, I’m not taking pain medications anymore. When I walk around I feel more balanced. Also I’ve been able to get back in the gym and have started on weights, which I wasn’t able to do before. When you come here its a family atmosphere and I would recommend him to everyone. I even have my mom come here and feel it would be beneficial to you as well.

I’m a patient of Dr. Gorman. I wanted to say how much I’ve enjoyed being a patient of his and I originally came to him for lower back pain an neck pain and after a few treatments I walked out of there thinking that I hadn’t felt that good in a long time. I really like his adjusting technique, better than any Chiropractor I’ve been to in a long time. I have a lot of spine problems, my cervical and lumbar spine are both bad and Dr. Gorman has really made me feel a lot better. His office is in a nice area and is neat and clean. The staff know you when you come in and its all very modern and makes you feel at home. I definitely recommend Dr. Gorman an hope you consider trying him out for your needs.

Over the years I've had different health problems that I have seen Chiropractors in town for. It seemed like they could help a little but it would go back to the same after a day or two. It never seemed to progress past that. never getting totally better. I do a newspaper route and I have various problems from that. My neck gets very tight since I'm turning it a lot and with tossing the papers. I fell last year and hurt my knee and thumb. I've been getting charlie horses and I can't get to sleep. I tried to receive it and its never gone away, even with my previous Chiropractor working on it. Its been two weeks now that I have no problem with my thumb. I didn't know my hips were not aligned until I saw my x-rays were very crooked. My knee feels a lot better, almost totally better. I took a food sensitivity test and have cut out foods I shouldn't be eating that I didn't know about. I've cut those out and feel better all the time. I'm amazed at how much better I am, and my son too. He recommended I see Dr. Gorman. I think everyone here because everything has helped.

I've been coming to Dr. Gorman for 4 weeks now. I started to come with my husband who has had some back problems. I have a foot problem and my husband thought this would help me. Dr. Gormans techniques are interesting and I've noticed improvement. He has looked at alternative technologies to help me with inflammation. Modern Health is very professional and answer any questions I ask.

My name is Tim I’ve been coming here 3-4 weeks now, I started out with foot pain and lower back pain and Dr. Patrick has done a marvelous job for me. My foot pain was a 10/10 and is at a 2/10 today. My Back pain was 8-10/10 and is down to a 2/10. I like how he's upfront and explains what he's going to do before he does it and its been super. I’d recommend anyone who has any pain at all to come see him because he will definitely help you.

Hi I’ve been coming to Dr. Gorman for 6 months. I’ve never had this sensation of my back loosing up has he has been able to do for me with the  treatments and his adjustments have been beneficial for me and my well being. My back has been tied up in knots for years and Dr. Patrick has been able to loosen that up for me and I feel so much better because of it. Thank you.

A friend of mine referred me here. I came in and saw Dr. Gorman and a week later I was back for my first treatment and the difference was unbelievable. It was the first time in 2.5 years that I could step up into my truck without pain. Dr. Patrick told me this is a process and it’s been phenomenal so far. I’m excited to see the end result.

I came to Modern Health & Wellness with 5 ruptured discs and a knee that was bone on bone. A friend saw an ad in the paper and gave it to me so I decided to give it a try. Through spinal manipulation and cold laser my knee is 99% better. For the first time in 5 months I walked up a flight up steps without it hurting and my back is showing progress as well.

A friend told me to come to Modern Health for the headaches I was having daily as well as back pain and problems with my feet. Through my treatments I’ve gotten my feet fixed, my headaches have gone away, my back pain went away and I’ve got my mom and my wife coming to see the Doctor too. I would recommend Dr. Gorman he does a great job!
