Whether you’re an accomplished athlete or a weekend warrior, we understand that injuries are inevitable. However, a large number of these injuries can be prevented with early detection of biomechanical alterations and correct education.
Many times, faulty movement patterns in the body can later lead to chronic overuse injuries that can sideline athletes for weeks.
The Chicago sports injury treatment doctors at Physicians Plus take pride in their understanding of sports biomechanics. Therefore, they take you through functional assessments to determine if there are any strength, alignment, or range of motion limitations, in order to address these concerns before they become a larger issue.
It’s this knowledge that the doctors use in order to design individualized treatment plans along with soft tissue therapy, education, and exercises that keep you injury free and in motion.
Performance care is designed to not only reduce the risk of common injuries from occurring and decrease recovery times, but to help increase your optimum sport performance.
At Physicians Plus, we work with many athletes who are involved in a variety of sports, such as: Triathlon, Running, Cycling, Swimming, Golf, Tennis, Weightlifting, Hockey, CrossFit, etc. Call our office to learn more about our Chicago sports injury treatment services.

Headaches are among the most common health issue, affecting people of all ages. Headaches and migraines can be difficult to manage, especially if you aren’t certain why they are happening. If you’re tired of forfeiting your productivity to pain, talk to a chiropractor about holistic headache management. Chiropractic maneuvers can be used on the neck and spine to reduce bodily tension and other issues that may be triggering your symptoms. Evidence suggests that chiropractic reduces migraine days, making them an essential part of your pain management strategy.

Every person has unique movement patterns that they may not even be aware of, along with their own personal health history.

We use various chiropractic techniques to relieve your symptoms, including the Graston Technique®, McKenzie Method® and Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization®, to name a few.
Soft tissue injuries happen when the muscles, tendons or ligaments experience a trauma. Something as simple as a sprain or overusing a certain muscle group can lead to pronounced pain and other symptoms. Whether your pain occurs suddenly or gradually over time, our team can help. At Physicians Plus, we use the Fascial Distortion Model™ to treat soft tissue injuries and accelerate healing. This approach utilizes a full-body strategy to improve your pain while encouraging tissue repair.
Physicians Plus is amazing! Dr. Paul and Dr. Tim are extremely knowledgeable and attentive - you always feel like they have your best interests at heart and care a great deal about your specific issue. I first started seeing Dr. Paul in 2013 due to back pain, but have also received assistance for hip and knee pain over the years. Most recently he helped me with lower back and hamstring tightness that was also causing knee pain, which was impacting my running. Over the course of several weeks, Dr. Paul got me back into running shape and I just completed...
"These guys are great! I had 11+ weeks of ulnar nerve pain (caused somewhere from carrying a newborn as well as getting hyperextended) when I finally went to see them. It got to the point where I was up multiple times a night because of pain. After 5 weeks of treatment Dr. Paul was able to alleviate the shooting nerve pain. He was able to work around my limited ability only to make it only ONCE a week as well as continue to participate in the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (3x a week) I just started. Dr. Paul was even able...
"I can't say enough great things about Physicians Plus. I have sent numerous people here and everyone has thanked me for the great referral. From everything to bad knees, sore back, immobile neck and years and years of ankle problems, Dr. Paul has been wonderful with all. I personally haven't seen Dr. Tim, but friends have and have reported that he is just as wonderful as his bro. They listen, explain exactly what they plan to do, work out a recovery and treatment plan, do everything they can to help those of us without insurance, and do it all with a...
Dr. Paul and Tim are both masters of their craft. I was in crisis mode with leg and hip pain and they saved me, both mentally and physically. They are great guys that genuinely care about you and take pride in doing their best work. You can trust them!
"Can't say enough good things about Physician Plus. I have seen Dr. Tim a few times off and on for a couple of years for knee, and most recently back issues. He is available, responsive, amiable, and most importantly, excellent in his doctoring skills. He "gets into" the muscle via ART and gets immediate results. I've seen more than a few chiropractors in my lifetime, and while I don't need Physician Plus consistently, they are the first place where I turn when faced with an issue with my active, ailing and aging body."
I highly recommend the therapeutic services of Dr. Paul and Tim Marando at Physicians Plus. I first began treatment following a bout of Piriformis Syndrome, which had left me sidelined from running for nearly two months; within a few weeks of treatment, I was back to running and able to resume marathon training. I have since returned for their assistance anytime I begin to feel an endurance sport related ache or pain. Their athletic backgrounds, work with active release therapy, and prescription of at-home strength building exercise are just what I need to remain competitive and pain free in both...
I have been seeing Dr. Paul for almost two years now. He puts you at ease and has helped me tremendously with my lower back pain. Everyone there is so incredibly sweet and friendly, they really make you feel comfortable. With everything going on with Covid-19, they gave us the option to do telehealth sessions which was a great option to continue treatment. It wasn't the same as going in, BUT it kept you working on therapy techniques to improve whatever ailment you are dealing with until they opened up again. I would recommend Physicians Plus to anyone!! :)
Dr. Paul and Dr. Tim are the best. I have been going to them for close to 9 years. Their understanding of sports injuries is second to none, and have kept me moving throughout long triathlon seasons putting me back together on more than one occasion. I can't recommend them enough!
If I could give Dr. Tim more stars and more referrals (I definitely send anyone I know who needs his services) I would. I've never felt this mobile in 15 years. The fact that he is so knowledgeable and my regimen + 'homework' evolves each week gives me reason to recommend him to anyone looking for rehabilitation and mobility work. His staff is utterly professional and they make sure my schedule works with mine.
Extremely fortunate to find Dr Tim. He is excellent at his trade and solved an injury I was having. He is patient, thorough, and to top it all, a great personality. Kelly at the front desk is welcoming and informative. A+ Team. Highly recommend their service.
