Why Therapeutic Massage?

Many practice members ask about the value of massage in combination with their chiropractic care. While chiropractic care  focuses on the relationship between the spine and its impact on the nervous system, massage focuses on the muscle  component. Both disciplines work together.

Retraining Your Spine

Long-standing spinal problems often accompany ingrained muscle patterns. Muscle spasms and scar tissue are often  involved. Complementing your chiropractic  care with massage therapy addresses these muscle and soft tissue problems.  This can help speed your recovery and enhance the retraining of your spine.

Chiropractic First

Massage therapy feels good. If you’re tempted to choose massage over your chiropractic care, keep in mind that your  nervous system—the focus of your chiropractic care—controls muscles. If you must choose one or the other, choose  chiropractic. Because as helpful as massage therapy can be, ultimately the integrity of your nervous system is more  important.

Tronger "T"

My career in the health field started at massage school in early 2013. The extensive 900hr program was demanding and covered all aspects of where you can take yourself in the field. From the beginning, I knew that working with patients alongside the brilliance of other healthcare providers was where I belong. Upon graduation, I was not satisfied with being just a regular massage therapist so I took my education further to be certified in neuromuscular therapy and active release therapy to provide better care for my patients by expanding my range of treatment to cover specific conditions such as carpal tunnel, tennis elbow, and early stages of frozen shoulder. Here at Riverwalk, my day starts early and I refuse to let it end until all the needs of my patients are met. - Tronger
