About Essential ChiroCare

AN INTEGRATIVE APPROACH

Pain doesn’t exist in a vacuum. Pain is a symptom, and the only way to really treat it is to pinpoint and address its root causes. Every person will experience and deal with pain differently, and it’s our mission to work with you to find the best solutions for addressing yours so that you can live a healthy, fulfilling, and uninhibited life.
About Essential ChiroCare

OUR GOAL

Since founding Essential ChiroCare over 20 years ago, our goal has been to bridge the gap between what attentive, effective chiropractic care should look like and what it actually is. Our team is dedicated to offering a wide array of treatment options and approaches in order to make sure you get the most from your care.

OUR VISION

Essential ChiroCare Tampa chiropractors Dr. Tan Tran and Dr. Thang Tran in 2001. Then and now, our vision has been to empower our patients to not only be free of pain, but to take control of lifestyle factors that are contributors to poor health.

OUR APPROACH

We accomplish this by offering an advanced health care approach that treats pain as a symptom, not as an affliction. We work with our patients to pinpoint and address the underlying causes of pain, maintain mobility, and promote lifestyles that are both happy and healthy.

It is my greatest reward when our efforts help our patients realize that there is hope beyond what they have known with conventional care. That they are empowered and we can give them the tools necessary to live their lives to the fullest.

We will do everything we can to make sure you get the right care that you need. If we can’t help you, we will make sure to find someone who can.”

“We will try to find the cause of your symptoms and not merely try to mask it.” “We will never do anything which cause you harm.” “We will work together to ensure that you stay healthy not just for today, but for a lifetime.

Outside of my professional life, my greatest gift is my family. I have two great kids named Miles and Ruby and a dog named Swayze. I am also very fortunate to be in practice with my brother for over 18 years!
