Chris Chapman, DO

Pediatric Sports Medicine Specialist

"As a pediatrician and sports medicine specialist, I take care to allow the body to heal itself in the least invasive way. Working with a young mostly healthy patient population, I emphasize healthy alternatives to surgery such as therapy and rehabilitation. I am comfortable working with sports related injuries such as strains, sprains and even simple fractures."

I am working on my ninth year in non-surgical orthopedics and sports medicine and have lots of experience caring for many of the great families in the surrounding areas.

I have 4 children of my own and pride myself on relating with and understanding a family's needs when it comes to injuries and prevention. I look forward to start the healing process in hopes of getting our young patients and athletes back to being active and healthy!"

Dr. Chapman is a sports enthusiast and is currently a Co-Director of a soccer club in the city of Chicago with over 30 travel teams. His children all compete in competitive athletics and he understands the desire to achieve excellence in a safe, healthy way.

Dr. Chapman's friendly, warm demeanor makes it all the more comfortable to have him assist his families return to their healthy active lifestyles.
