At Wellness Sport & Spine Chiropractic and Massage, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic care to each and every patient. We have included information below about the different chiropractic services offered in our Tallahassee chiropractic office, but please call us at 850-645-0612 if you have any questions!

Chiropractic Care

We provide advanced spinal correction and chiropractic adjustments utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques and therapies. We apply a sports medicine approach to care with the goal of restoring proper function to the human kinetic chain. Never in the history of chiropractic care have chiropractors been able to provide the level of help and expertise that is available today. Many of the newest chiropractic techniques are actually safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a chiropractor who cares about utilizing the most advanced chiropractic techniques, Dr. John Van Tassel has years of training, expertise and experience in helping patients get pain relief for back pain, neck pain, headaches, and other related conditions originating from the spine and extremities. Chiropractic care under a trained professional can even be used to prevent injuries and help you achieve total health or wellness.


Corrective Exercises

At Wellness Sport & Spine Chiropractic and Massage, we teach our patients how to perform special "blueprint" exercises which can help strengthen and correct the irregularities in their body which may be causing pain. Many of these corrective exercises can actually be performed in the comfort of your own home to help improve the effectiveness of your chiropractic care and spinal correction plan. In addition to skeletal dysfunction, you may be experiencing pain that is caused by muscles and connective tissues which are functioning improperly as well. Other types of pain such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches are caused by muscles and tissues that are being used incorrectly, causing injuries over time. In each case, targeted corrective exercises and stretches from our experienced chiropractor will help you feel good while also helping your body achieve balance and health.


Lifestyle Advice

Many of our patients come to see our chiropractor to address a specific pain symptom such as back pain, neck pain or headaches. While our chiropractor will address each patient's specific condition with chiropractic care, we often find it helpful to "coach" our patients towards achieving a healthier lifestyle. For example, there may be certain activities that you should avoid or do differently to prevent yourself from unintentionally aggravating your particular health challenges. The goal of including lifestyle advice with a chiropractic care plan is to help each and every patient achieve the fulfilling and happy lifestyle they deserve, one that is full of the activities that are enjoyed most. We recognize that every single one of our patients is a whole person, and we use our expertise to help them reach total health and wellness.


Massage Therapy

Massage therapy does more than make you feel good, it can actually help your body achieve balance and health. Massage therapy offers a treatment approach which actually relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our chiropractic office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is complimentary to their chiropractic care. Each massage therapy plan is tailored to meet the patient's unique pain condition or injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include the increase of blood circulation, a localized reduction in swelling and the relaxation of muscles. Massage has been known to relieve muscle pain and spasms, increase a patient's range of motion, while also aiding in a patient's recovery. 


Health & Wellness Recommendations and Referrals

What do nutrition, women's health, personal training and stress management have to do with chiropractic care? The goal of chiropractic care is to help patients achieve total health and balance with their body, and as part of that goal we may make specific recommendations regarding other services available in the FSU Health & Wellness Center.  The healthcare providers here will work together to provide each patient with structured program that is based on their individual needs. 


Athletic, Campus and Community Events

There is a saying that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Your health is no exception. Our experienced chiropractors are often asked to speak at various athletic, campus, and community events on topics regarding health and wellness.  We also provide chair massages and sports massages at events upon request.  Contact us today at 850-645-0612 to arrange an event for your upcoming athletic or organizational function.
