More About Dr. Gorman:

Dr. Gorman graduated from the University of Missouri-Columbia in 1993 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Physical Therapy. His clinical career has focused on orthopedic manual physical therapy. His post-graduate orthopedic manual physical therapy training includes five years of Residency, Fellowship, and Ph.D. training, all through the Ola Grimsby Institute.  

As his career has evolved, he has developed a passion for treating the TMJ patient.  Millions of Americans suffer from TMJ pain that affects their lives on a daily basis. He strongly feels this undertreated region deserves the same respect as a beloved knee or shoulder patient. 

Dr. Gorman previously owned a private practice PT company in St. Louis, MO, before selling to a national rehab provider in 2017. In 2020 he started iMove PT, a mobile physical therapy practice. He loved the mobile model so much that in 2022 he began to franchise the iMove PT brand. Currently, there are 3 iMove PT franchisees located in Kansas City, MO, Joplin, MO, and Tulsa, Oklahoma. His goal is to give PTs with an entrepreneurial spirit the ability to have their own business with the support of a proven mobile PT brand. 

For over 12 years, Dr. Gorman has been very involved with the American Physical Therapy Association Missouri Chapter, currently nearing the end of 6 years as Vice President of the Missouri Chapter. He is very involved with state legislation to protect and advance the practice of physical therapy in Missouri. In addition, he has had a PT expert witness practice for the last eight years. He is a true entrepreneur and looks to expand the field of physical therapy at every opportunity.  

Last but not least, Dr. Gorman and his amazing wife Sharon have four kids, aged 13 to 30 years old. During his free time, Dr. Gorman enjoys spending time with his family, golfing, and giving special TLC to his dogs, Cooper and Daisy. He is always looking for a good adventure and a great podcast!
