Meet The Doctors

Dr. Kory Spear, D.C. is a Chiropractor at Rockford Forest Plaza

I have been in private practice since my graduation from Palmer College of Chiropractic (Davenport, Iowa) in 1992. My journey has taken me to Wisconsin, Colorado, Florida, Illinois and even the US Virgin Islands. I have been in the Rockford area most of the last 15 years.

I was raised in Bettendorf, Iowa. I competed in gymnastics in high school and into college. I am a huge Iowa Hawkeyes fan and I try to annually attend a football game and wrestling meet. While at Palmer College I started to play rugby and continued for several years after.

In the Rockford area I have been very involved in the fitness world through my practice and CrossFit. I have co-owned a local CrossFit gym and still coach some CrossFit athletes. I also have competed in CrossFit locally and nationally.

While I have treated many professional athletes over the years, in a variety of sports, my practice focus has always been on lifetime family wellness care. I like to call it, “wellness care from birth to death.”

Outside of the office I am a proud husband to my wife Brandy, honored to be the father of my sons Brandin and Sawyer, and my step daughters Hailey and Madison. Brandy and I are also blessed to be grandparents to our granddaughters Alex and River.

When I am not in the office, Brandy and I workout nearly everyday. I am also a huge fan of high school and college wrestling, football, rugby and CrossFit. But nothing is more relaxing than watching a great movie.

I look forward to providing affordable and high quality chiropractic care to you all here at The Joint in Rockford.

Dr. Sean Gilmore, D.C. is a Chiropractor at Rockford Forest Plaza

My chiropractic education began when my father moved his family to Davenport, Ia to study chiropractic at Palmer College of Chiropractic in 1967, I was 3 years old. My earliest memories are afternoons spent in the student clinic, my dad practicing his setups and thrusts then sliding down the table as it rose to its upright position.

Dad passed in 2003 but his love of and devotion to chiropractic continues in my two sisters and me.

When I separated from the military I was in my mid-twenties, living in Italy, when I met an American couple who needed a crew member aboard their 48 foot sloop, Halcyon. This opened the door to a number of adventures at sea.

After Italy, I returned to the US and worked a number of jobs before going to live in Ireland where I worked as a mechanic, a delivery driver and a cemetery worker. It was while I was in Ireland that I decided to return to the US and, finally, further my education.

Back in the US, in St. Louis, Mo, I took undergraduate degrees in electronic engineering and engineering management before attending Logan College of Chiropractic where I earned a third undergraduate degree in human biology before earning my Doctor of Chiropractic in 2008.

With my diploma in hand, I took the certification exams in the United Kingdom and practiced with my older sister in Salt Coats, Scotland.

When my work visa expired, I returned to the US, to live with my younger sister in Crystal Lake, Il, and I am excited to be working at The Joint in Rockford and look forward to helping my patients attain, and maintain their health.
