Sports Injuries: Our Specialty
A lot of doctors and chiropractors claim to "fix it all." Many times, they profess to be specialists in many things. They say they are the best wellness chiropractor, best sports doctor, the best nutritionists, etc. At Advanced Physical Medicine at Bell District, we make one claim: We strive to be the best sports injury specialists around.
There are many great choices for sports doctors in the area and we want to help you find the right fit. What makes us different from another "sports chiropractor?" The biggest difference is our training, which is solely based on how we can improve athletes' injuries, performance and rehab. Period. That's it. We are offered many courses and they might be great, but if they are not geared to help athletes, we pass right by. That's what makes us unique in this crowded market. We live by the phrase "Where Athletes Go to Get Better!"
Speaking of athletes, Advanced Physical Medicine at Bell District is full of them.
Dr. Tuggle is an avid athlete, conquering all types of training and races including marathons, bike races and even the Ironman. Dr. Tuggle loves to compete and is often seen participating in, volunteering for or supporting many athletic events in the central Texas region.
The rest of the staff enjoys a wide variety of athletic activities like running, triathlon, strength training, CrossFit, HIIT, hiking, tennis, and more.
So what can we fix? Lots of stuff! What do you have? We work on many different types of soft tissues issues like Plantar Fasciitis, knee pain, hamstring pain, tennis elbow, foot pain, tendonitis, hip pain, runner's knee, shoulder impingement and more. Since Dr. Tuggle and crew focus on soft tissue complaints, most of these injuries are no match for Advanced Physical Medicine at Bell District.
In the clinic we use excellent techniques including Active Release Treatment (ART), Graston Technique, Kinesio Taping, Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA which is related to FMS), Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT), Decompression Therapy (DTS) and lots of rehab and corrective exercises to help not only correct the problem, but to focus preventing it from coming back.
We are conveniently located in Cedar Park and are located close to Austin, Round Rock, Leander, Jonestown, Lago Vista and Lakeway. Even if you have to make a short commute we will do our best to make it worthwhile.
Still not sure? Ask around. We treat all levels of athletes, from young student athletes to adult weekend warriors. Dr. Tuggle has also treated many pro-level athletes, so if they can trust him, you can too. Being named The Best Chiropractor in Austin in 2013 and 2015 by Austin Fit Magazine, and one of the top three chiropractors in Austin in 2014, should also give you an idea of our capability. So now it's time to stop reading and book that appointment.
