Meet The Doctor

Dr. Tuggle

Dr. John Tuggle | D.C.

Dr. Tuggle's journey into the healthcare field began in the 1990s after a life-altering experience at a theme park. Following an accident resulting in a sprain-strain injury, he discovered the healing potential of chiropractic care through a chance meeting with a chiropractor.

Intrigued by the relief he experienced during a trial of chiropractic treatment, Dr. John Tuggle, equipped with natural manual dexterity and a profound respect for the healing process, envisioned integrating these qualities into his future profession.

Initially holding a degree in theatrical arts from Austin Community College, Dr. Tuggle redirected his academic focus to the scientific realm, choosing Texas Chiropractic College, a longstanding institution established in 1908.

Graduating in 1999, he relocated to the Austin area in 2001, embarking on an active and impactful practice spanning over two decades, catering to patients across central Texas.

In his personal life, Dr. Tuggle is happily married to his wife, Andrea (Andi), and they are proud parents to three children: Chayseland, Cameron, and Kendall. Beyond his professional pursuits, Dr. Tuggle engages in various hobbies, including exercise, lake activities such as surfing and occasional slalom skiing, motorcycle riding, and flying airplanes.
