Welcome to the home of Athletic & Family Chiropractic. Our clinicians provide better health through conservative non-drug, non-surgical sports chiropractic and massage. For thirty years we have been surprising patients with what we can accomplish with manual medicine, home exercise prescription and insight to the cause of complaints.

Welcome to Athletic & Family Chiropractic

Your Trusted Tallahassee Chiropractor

Obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular issues and other co-morbidities of the CoVid19 pandemic are lifestyle related. It is urgent that we all do what we know we need to: trim down, get fit, get strong. Our experience with world class athletes gives us the insight to guide you and treat (better yet, prevent) musculoskeletal and related complaints along the way.

Our Mission

While treating elite athletes is the key to our training and experience. It is providing the same concepts in care to non-athletes that fulfills our mission. Life is an athletic event. We are all athletes. Our providers aim to help everyday athletes meet their goals. Whether that is weekend golf, cleaning up the yard, wrangling a family while fighting to maintain a good level of fitness. Some of our memorable successes are patients with fitness/weight problems with associated musculoskeletal complaints like plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinitis, low back pain and, possibly, opioid dependence.

Doc Van Tassel is great. Ryan is working out the muscle kinks.

-Thoma M. | Tallahassee

The staff was pleasant and the Dr. quickly diagnosed my neck injury and corrected it. I would highly recommend this office.

-Jennifer J. | Tallahassee

As usual, staff was polite and helpful. Dr. Van Tassel was prompt and thorough in his adjustment process. I definitely feel better now.

I am always in a hurry, so it is great that Dr. Van Tassel as well as his massage therapists are always on schedule. The staff is friendly and helpful and I always get excellent treatment. Massage therapist Ryan is outstanding!
