Gainesville Chiropractor

Dr. Charles Tucker utilizes the Activator Technique for chiropractic treatment. Unlike manual manipulation methods, the activator technique relies on targeting a precise high-speed, low-displacement pulse only to the exact region necessary to perform the desired alignment. Using the device shown at the right, Dr. Tucker can pinpoint treatment to the exact source of your pain - eliminating the twisting, cracking and popping usually associated with chiropractic treatment.

At Tucker Chiropractic our multi-dimensional team concept provides you with a non-surgical approach to your pain or injury.

Tucker Chiropractic is committed to providing the highest quality services to help restore each patient to optimal health and well being. A completely individualized program will be designed utilizing the most advanced combination of diagnostics and treatment options available.

At Tucker Chiropractic our goals are to relieve pain while working to correct the cause of your condition and maintain your health, with you as an active participant. The most successful health program is devoted to both healing and restoration of complete function.

The Activator Technique

Chiropractic Sports Physician

As a Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician, I have worked at many athletic events and sites like the University of Florida and the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando. But my most favorite venue was in Atlanta as I was selected to treat athletes at the 1996 Summer Olympics. I had the opportunity and pleasure to treat athletes from all over the world affected by different conditions associated with the demands they were putting on their bodies. I was fortunate to treat Dan O'Brien, an American athlete who won the gold medal in the 1996 decathlon (and was featured on Wheaties).

Today’s athletes are pushed to their limits every day in practice, training and competition. Dr. Charles Tucker is proud to have participated in the 1996 Olympic Games in a healing role for so many of the world’s top athletic performers. But practicing in Gainesville, FL, has its similarities to being surrounded by ambitious achievers.

Chiropractic & Sports

With the multitude of student-athletes at the University of Florida, Santa Fe Community College, and the many middle schools and high schools in the region, Dr. Tucker has the privilege to continue his sports physician chiropractic care every day. And although we understand how hard student-athletes work to stay at their peak performance, we also recognize the efforts of those who enjoy recreational athletic activities, such as yoga, cycling, marathon running and participating in community sports teams. You don’t have to be an Olympic athlete to experience a sports injury or pain. When sports-related injuries occur, some try to work despite the pain while others may be left at a standstill. At Tucker Chiropractic in Gainesville, we work toward total body health. Through athletics, nutrition and chiropractic treatment, you can alleviate pain and be ready for the next game, match or mile.
