Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care should be designed to fit an individual’s unique needs and provide comfortable care based on a patient’s individualized healthcare goals. Along with traditional adjusting techniques, there are many different techniques and therapies that Dr. Gorman can use to achieve patients’ goals and give them the most comfortable and appropriate care to help their body heal faster and allow them to get back to peak health and performance.

Dr. Gorman has been trained in the latest chiropractic adjusting techniques, which allows her to provide safe, comfortable care to each patient. Chiropractic care under a trained professional can even be used to prevent injuries and help you achieve total health and wellness.

Tool-Assisted Adjustments

Tool-assisted adjusting provides a more gentle approach to manipulating the spine.


Using an Arthrostim adjusting tool allows Dr. Gorman to more effectively treat patients with arthritis or osteoporosis, patients who don’t like the “popping/cracking” of a manual adjustment, or those patients whose muscles are very tense and sore.

Myofascial Release

Myofascial Release is a movement-based soft tissue technique that treats old and new injuries involving muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and nerves.


It is a technique that is highly effective in resolving overuse conditions such as back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, and tennis elbow.

Kinesio Tape can be seen on many athletes during sporting events such as the Olympics or NBA basketball games.

Therapeutic Exercises & Stretches

Dr. Gorman believes patients should be given the opportunity to take an active part in their healing.  At-home exercises and stretches are an important part of any treatment plan.


Dr. Gorman will assess which muscles are tight and weak, and give recommendations based on her findings.

Dr. Katy Gorman having a patient do decompression


Dr. Gorman’s Traverse City office offers both lumbar and cervical decompression therapy. Spinal decompression helps treat disc herniations or bulging that can cause radiating pain, such as sciatica. The goal is to create a negative pressure within the disc to pull back the herniation or bulge as well as bring in nutrients to the disc to increase healing.

Dr. Katy Gorman offering pregnancy care for women

Pregnancy Care

Dr. Gorman is certified in the Webster Technique to treat pregnant women. The Webster Technique is a safe and effective chiropractic analysis and adjustment for pregnant women that helps decrease the effect of sacral misalignment/SI dysfunction.  Pregnant moms are more susceptible to sacral and pelvic misalignments because of increased hormones (relaxin), weight gain, and changes in her posture, which is why I recommend chiropractic care throughout pregnancy.
