Gobbie Chiropractic is your total health and performance center. We offer an array of services to help you achieve your best health.
Adjustments are quick and painless and have been applied to patients for more than 150 years. Gently adjusting the position of the vertebrae, or the injured joint, restores the natural exchange of nerve impulses from the brain to the rest of the body. This technique can help begin the healing process by eliminating your pain.
Dr Gobbie combines his experience and knowledge of Physical Therapy, Chiropractic and Functional Movement Systems (FMS) Training into our Physical Rehabilitation program. Our program is a unique blend of Core Training and Functional Movement Systems (FMS) Training, which helps you build strength and stability to your injured area. Whether you were injured in a car accident or have an athletic injury, our goal is to help you heal as quick as possible so you can resume your daily activities pain free.

Sports Enhancement Training through Functional Movement Screens (FMS)
The Functional Movement Screen (FMS) is an exercise philosophy based on science, years of innovation and current research. It’s about getting back to the basic functional movements that can prevent injury and improve athletic performance through gaining strength, stability and mobility. By screening these simple patterns based on a grading system, we can identify functional limitations and asymmetries which can cause you to over compensate another part of your body causing injury. The scoring system can target and track your progress with corrective exercises that will restore mechanically sound movement patterns. Who can benefit from FMS? Golfers, football players, track and field athletes, swimmers, any athlete or weight lifter who wants to improve their performance and help reduce risk of injury. Professional football teams and golfers have used this system to enhance their athletic performance. Dr. Gobbie is one of seven in the Pittsburgh area to be certified in FMS training.

It may seem like an indulgence, but it’s proven that massage therapy is much more. Massage therapy has proven beneficial for many chronic conditions, including low back pain, arthritis, bursitis, fatigue, high blood pressure, diabetes, immunity suppression, infertility, ear infections, depression, and more. Massage Therapy also helps relieve the stress and tension of everyday living that can lead to disease and illness. We offer deep tissue, Swedish and reflexology.
Your diet plays a crucial role in your overall health. And when most days are hectic, it can be hard to eat the way our bodies need us too day-in and day-out. Nutritional supplements can help fill in the gaps where our diet falls short. Supplements can get rid of the toxins which we take in everyday from chemical food additives and replenish the minerals, fiber, protein and fatty acids that are stripped out of processed foods. We need all the nutrients in their proper amounts for optimum health and to help boost our immune system. When your diet is insufficient, nutrients needed to function optimally are best provided by high-quality supplements. After a long and careful search, we have chosen to carry nutritional supplements from Douglas Laboratories. They have been dedicated to providing the highest quality nutritional supplements since 1955. Gobbie Chiropractic carries a wide variety of dietary supplements ranging from fish oil and glucosamine to multi vitamins. We also offer supplements designed specifically for women, joints and muscles, strong bones, heart health and more. Make an appointment today with our nutritionist and develop a supplement regime that’s right for you.
