The RxWellness Chiropractic model differs from other chiropractic clinics and therapy clinics. We believe in treating the whole patient so that they can obtain optimal functionality. Our comprehensive holistic treatment program incorporates chiropractic care and other natural therapies and techniques to treat patient pain. Dr. Sandra McGourty and her team guide patients through the process with ease. Our chiropractic program is centered around 3 Stages: Relief Care, Corrective Care, and Maintenance.
RxWellness believes in combining chiropractic care and natural therapies like massage therapy, because the two treatments complement each other. By relaxing a patient’s muscles through massage, chiropractic treatment and alignment becomes even more effective. Our approach is holistic and focuses on neuromuscular retraining to build strength and restore muscle.
In addition to massage therapy, Dr. McGourty specializes in Active Release Technique (ART). Active Release Technique treats soft tissue restrictions that may be responsible for chronic pain or mobility issues. It aims to break down scar tissue, which may be making movement either difficult or painful.
Dr. McGourty is also trained in the Graston Technique. Graston is a special technique also used to break up scar tissue restriction with the use of patented instruments to treat chronic injuries or surgical scars. Stainless steel instruments are used to mobilize soft tissue and promote faster healing in conditions that were once thought to be permanent or untreatable.

Massage therapy is an essential tool for decreasing muscle tension and pain, as well as preparing the tissues prior to a spinal adjustment.

Our expert massage therapists will specifically target areas where you feel pain and customize their massage techniques to bring you ultimate relaxation and release of muscular tightness.
We don’t mean to brag about our outstanding service and highly-skilled clinicians, but our former and current clients sure do! Read on to hear about some amazing patient results, and how our office does its best to ensure a pleasant experience at RxWellness Spine & Health.
I’ve been seeing Dr. McGourty for low back, neck, and shoulder pain for over 6 years. About a year ago I experienced debilitating back pain. Dr, McGourty sent me for an MRI and read the results for me. She knew I did not want surgery, so she walked me through techniques including stretches, physical therapy, stem, decompression, and adjustments. If it wasn’t for her expertise and care, I would still be in debilitating pain. I am so grateful to her for helping me get back to normal. And now I don't have to take pain medicine anymore! Not only is she a knowledgeable Chiropractor but she is caring and kind. My son would come into the office with me, she always took time to speak to him and give him snacks/candy, he just adores her. She’s amazing, HIGHLY recommend her!!
Dr. McGourty has taken care of me for over 3 years as I have needed multiple surgeries. (Knees, Shoulder, Back) She is always easy to talk to and shows she genuinely cares about her patients. Her care helped me manage my pain and regain strength and mobility, her explanations of what she saw, how she was going to treat it, and directions to her staff were excellent. She even advises you to see your specialist if she noticed something was wrong or no noticeable improvement is occurring. I highly recommend her if you are looking for a Physical Therapist or Chiropractor.
I am so elated to know that my daughter will continue to be seen by Dr. McGourty. Dr. McGourty is a very knowledgable doctor, and being that she was a former gymnast, made my daughter feel even more comfortable, because she was a gymnast too. Dr. McGourty has been able to fix all the issues that my daughter has encountered being a gymnast. From a sprained ankle, sprained wrist, hips being out of alignment, slight scoliosis, muscle issues and neck injury from running into a vault. Dr. McGourty has been her angel doctor. I have recommended all my gymnast/cheerleading friend's moms to her. I honestly don't know if I would have been able to continue in gymnastics and now cheerleading, if it weren't for Dr. McGourty's expertise!
First, I’d like to say that the office is clean, and the staff is extremely friendly and accommodating. With my ever-changing day to day schedule, they’ve been understanding and willing to accommodate. Dr. Sandra McGourty has helped me tremendously with the movement of my neck use Activate Release Technique. After just one visit I was experiencing 50% more movement than I’ve had in years. I highly recommend this location in Tyson’s, highly!
Dr. McGourty is a great chiropractic doctor! I have been seeing her for 2 years. I previously received her chiropractic care at another location, and when she told me she was leaving that practice I knew I had to follow. With some research I was able to locate her new employment and continue my treatments. In my opinion, your body is not something you toy with and once you’ve found a good doctor you should stick with them. In this case, I highly recommend you see Dr. McGourty. I personally couldn’t have just anybody making adjustments to my back and neck. Dr. McGourty is very personable, informative, and caring. She asks thorough questions to make sure she is giving you the best treatment possible. She definitely is a doctor you can trust to provide you excellent care.
Dr. Sandra McGourty is an EXCELLENT chiropractor. Earlier this year I was experiencing hip pain and was seen by Dr. McGourty. Not only did she adjust me to immediately help relieve some of my pain, she set up a treatment plan to help me gradually improve and feel much better. After about 2 months of seeing Dr. McGourty twice a week, I was able to graduate from her care and only have to do stretches at home on my own to prevent re-injury. The best thing about Dr. McGourty is the "oomph" in her adjustments! Don't be fooled by this little lady -- she is STRONG and will get you feeling right in no time!
Dr. Sandra McGourty is a wonderful doctor! I have experienced back pain, neck pain and low back pain for years. Many doctors in the past just tried to prescribe me medication, by Dr. McGourty was able to make me feel 100 times better using her Active Release Technique and treating me as a person. I also never felt like I was just another person to get in and out of the office as quickly as possible. She always took the time to make sure that she addressed all of my needs.
Alex D. Tremble
Dr. McGourty has really helped me manage my pain with her chiropractic expertise. I have arthritis in my knees affecting the way I walk this causes my hips and lower back to get out of alignment. I also used to get frequent leg cramps, but Dr Sandra solved that with the Active Release Technique. That treatment was the only thing that has ever helped me with excruciating leg cramps. But the most important thing about Sandra McGourty is her presence, she takes the time to really listen to her patients.

Dr. Sandra McGourty is hands down one of the top chiropractors I have seen. She is a constant professional, passionate about helping others and dedicated to ensuring you walk out feeling 100x better than when you walked in. I have suffered from neck pain, back pain and shoulder pain as a result of numerous injuries throughout the years; and recently an elbow injury to which Dr. McGourty's Active Release techniques helped me regain my strength. Every visit, Dr. McGourty would take her time to make sure each affected area was properly aligned so I could go about my daily routines pain free!
I started experiencing stiffness and immobility of my neck in 2018. After numerous diagnostic tests, the orthopedic surgeon determined that I have advanced arthritis and not a candidate for surgical intervention. As time passed, the stiffness and neck pain became more intense and affected all aspects of my daily life. Fortunately, in March 2019, I started seeing Dr. Sandra McGourty and through her chiropractic skill, I began to have increased mobility and decreased stiffness. Further, Dr. McGourty prescribed active physical therapy exercises to complete the therapeutic program. My chronic condition demands on-going chiropractic care to help manage the negative effects of arthritis and Dr. McGourty will provide that care to enhance my quality of life.
