In this week’s episode of Healthspan Academy, I caught up with Dr. Ray Gorman, who is a physical therapist and entrepreneur. We chatted about pain management and the roles of the therapist, coach and athlete in rehabilitation. Ray gave some really insightful info on understanding pain vs soreness. We talked about how and when to prescribe rest and/or active recovery as well as the transition from rehabilitation to regular training.
Dr. Ray Gorman is a physical therapist from Nevada, who has spent the recent years of his career leading countless coaches and has worked on creating an education system on how to take effective measures toward getting athletes and everyday people out of pain and improve their performance and function.
Earning a bachelor’s degree in Community Health Science at the University of Nevada and a Doctorate of Physical Therapy degree at Touro University Nevada, Dr. Ray draws on his experience as a Physical Therapist where he’s worked in the typical day-to-day outpatient clinic and in Division 1 Sports. Over time, he began to understand that to feel true fulfillment it was time to grow. He scaled the impact he had on the world by helping the people who help people. His interests include outpatient orthopedic, inpatient rehabilitation, sports performance, strength and conditioning, athletic performance, and managerial and business management.
You can find more about his work on his website.
