Chiropractic Services


Dr. Ann Marie Gore

Back or neck pain? Get an adjustment by Dr. Ann Marie Gore, the Country Doc Wellness Center’s wonderful chiropractor. Dr. Gore also specializes in weight loss through special nutrition counseling and lipolaser body sculpting.

Dr. Anne Marie Gore grew up in Voluntown, CT. At the age of 22 she attended Eastern Connecticut State University. She excelled academically and graduated in 2001 Magna Cum Laude. While at Yale studying pre-law classes, Dr. Gore sustained a significant injury to her lower back, which required a very slow process of rehabilitation. Eager to seek relief, she began receiving chiropractic treatments in Old Saybrook, CT. “The relief from pain and transformative improvement in my health inspired me to attend Chiropractic School instead of law school.”

In 2011, Dr. Gore graduated from the University of Bridgeport College of Chiropractic and then received additional training under two Chiropractic Neurologists from 2010 to 2012. In November 2012, Dr. Gore opened Back to Health Chiropractic Center and looks forward to expanding and servicing our great community.

The Back to Health Chiropractic Center is a state-of-the-art healthcare facility that combines modern technology with proven chiropractic techniques. Our personal approach has one goal for every patient: lasting wellness that helps you live your best life! With this approach, you become a partner in your own healing, not only eliminating pain but restoring your overall quality of life.


Body by Gore also provides Lipolaser in conjunction with weight loss services for full body makeover and improved health.  We have a wonderful chiropractor, Dr. Gore, who also specializes in weight loss. She has assisted many of our patients with losing weight through diet, exercise and her lipolaser program.
