Help the Body Heal Itself

Chris Goodrich, MD

Welcome to My Practice

I’m a physician with a passion for healing and optimizing the human body. I’ve built my practice to be everything I wish I could have had on my own healing journey. This means:

  • 1 hour long appointments

  • Consideration of the whole “medical toolbox” - not just medications

  • Support, empathy, and empowerment on the healing path

This is my passion project. I invite you to explore my site and what I have to offer. If you feel that I could be a good match to help you on your own healing journey please reach out.

Chronic PAin MAnagement

Chronic pain is so much more than an injured back or knee. It is a whole body issue that affects every facet of life for sufferers and their loved ones. If that weren’t enough, chronic pain is often accompanied by many other symptoms including depression, anxiety, fatigue, and weakness. It is a downward spiral that can be very difficult to get out of. My goal is to walk each patient out of this spiral and back to a functional life.

I treat from pain a whole-person perspective, without opiates or injections. I focus on lifestyle and mind-body treatments - an approach that is especially powerful for those who have struggled with finding relief from other modalities.

Body Optimization & Longevity

Health is more than treating disease. It is about prevention and achieving optimal function of the human body. Actually, these goals often go hand-in-hand because a healthy body feels good. I focus on the numerous techniques and modifications you can make to achieve this while also coaching you to become your own healer. I believe we each need to be our own physician as we know ourselves better than anyone else. I am excited to be your guide on the healing path.



Other Conditions

In addition to the conditions above, I also see patients for the following:

  • Mild Traumatic Brain Injury/Post-Concussion Syndrome

  • Sports Medicine/Nutrition

  • Developmental Disabilities - particularly caregivers for those suffering from disabilities


Individual appointments are 1 hour in duration. Weekday, evening, and weekend appointment slots are available.

Group sessions involve 6 sessions, 1-2 hours in length, with 6-12 participants. Currently I am focusing on groups for chronic pain management, but hope to add other conditions in the future. The group empowerment that comes from these sessions is extremely powerful and very important for the path towards healing.


Individual Appointment: $200/hr

Group Sessions: $150 for 6 sessions

Note: Group sessions are scheduled based on demand rather than on specific dates as I want the group membership to stay consistent through the 6 sessions. Please contact me for more information on upcoming groups.

Insurance: I am out-of-network for all insurers at this time.

In an effort to allow greater accessibility, I offer a certain percentage of visits per month on a donation basis. For more information please contact me below.


About Me

I’m a Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) specialist with a passionate interest in improving the overall function of the human body. Much of this comes from my own journey dealing with chronic medical conditions, including chronic pain.

This practice is the manifestation of my dream to treat patients well. I combine the best of what traditional medicine has to offer with many of the techniques that helped me the most, namely diet modifications, movement/exercise, and mind-body medicine techniques. I am also always reading and looking for new knowledge and techniques to add to my “medical toolbox”.

For those interested, I’ve listed my education background below.

  • B.S. in Biomedical Engineering at Pennsylvania State University

  • M.D. at University of Virginia School of Medicine

  • Internship in Internal Medicine at University of Maryland Midtown Campus

  • Residency in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Sinai Hospital of Baltimore (served as Chief Resident during final year)

    • Designed/implemented the first physician wellness program for the Sinai PM&R Department

  • Training in Mind-Body Medicine through the Center for Mind-Body Medicine
