ALEX TAPPLIN, DC, CSCS, CCSP


As a former All-American collegiate Track & Field athlete, I understand the importance of a complete and rapid return from pain and injury. I became interested early on in finding the most effective ways to overcome injury. 


An ankle injury that almost prevented me from finishing my high school athletic career inspired me to become a sports medicine specialist chiropractor.  A shoulder injury in college with excellent therapy from my strength coach and Athletic Trainers sparked me to look at injuries and pain through a broad lens and opened my eyes to soft tissue treatment as a key link to the treatment puzzle.  


I then had the opportunity to train under an elite sports medicine specialist and chiropractor.  Working with professional and Olympic athletes confirmed that a comprehensive, systematic approach is necessary to maximize results.  I have been using this approach in the Fox Cities for the last 9 years.  I continue to stay on top of the latest advances and clinical research from multiple disciplines to offer my patients the best possible outcomes. 


In my spare time, I volunteer as a Track & Field coach at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh. I live in Neenah with my wife and two daughters.  I enjoy training and competing in a variety of activities including, pole vaulting, kettlebell competitions, Olympic weightlifting, crossfit and triathlons.
