Chiropractic Treatment for Athletes

If you are serious about sports, you have probably lived by the philosophy, “No pain, no gain.” However, when sports injuries occur, they can put you on the sidelines and keep you from doing what you love. You need to enlist the aid of a chiropractor for sports injuries to help you get back to the sport that you love.

Dr. Tucker is a Gainesville chiropractor who can lead you on the path to recovery. As a certified chiropractic sports physician who was a health care provider for the 1996 Olympic games in Georgia, you can rest assured that his knowledge in sports medicine can benefit you.


When considering sports chiropractic, there are a variety of types of sports injuries that Dr. Tucker can effectively treat.

  • Any type of blow to the body can cause the spine to become misaligned. If you have received a blow to the spine, it can have a major impact on your mobility and flexibility, not to mention result in high levels of pain.
  • Muscle and tendon strains can also be corrected during chiropractic treatments.
  • Hamstring pulls, knee injuries, and tennis elbow can all be relieved with spinal adjustments that can strengthen joints and improve flexibility.
  • Lower back strain is extremely common in sports and can put you out of commission.

You need to turn to an expert in chiropractic in athletes. Dr. Tucker can provide you with the care you need to enjoy the sports activities that make your life fulfilling.


When you visit Dr. Tucker, an expert in sports chiropractic care who has been practicing for over 20 years, you can rest assured that you will be taking a step in the right direction to address your sports injuries. Your main goal is to treat your injury in order to offer you relief and take you a step closer to getting back into the athletic lifestyle that is a part of you. Dr. Tucker will perform a thorough and comprehensive evaluation of your injury using information from your team of physicians to identify your injury and the best course of action for treatment. When you are receiving adjustments, Dr. Tucker uses the Activator Method. Gone are the days when chiropractors only performed manual manipulations that were less precise and could be painful in the process. The Activator Method uses the latest in technology, delivering low-displacement pulses to the parts of the spine that will benefit from adjustment. The pulses are precise and delivered at a high speed, shifting the spine into the proper position. With each adjustment, you can feel relief and improve your body’s ability to heal.

Dr. Tucker can also give you advice about at-home care and exercises you can perform in order to speed up your recovery. With Dr. Tucker providing chiropractic for athletes and the team of professionals at Tucker Chiropractic you can put your sports injury behind you to get back to what you love to do.
