RiverPark Chiropractic To Re-open On Tuesday

Monday, December 9, 2013

Dr. William “Danny” Thompson announces the re-opening of RiverPark Chiropractic Center on Tuesday. He will reopen on Tuesday at his former location at 4922 Brainerd Road. 

Known by his patients as Dr. Danny, he took a year away from his private practice to learn in a multidisciplinary practice that incorporates traditional medicine with chiropractic techniques. This emerging field helps patients enjoy a quicker recovery time often without surgery or other medications. He is excited to bring this collaborative approach as well as new technologies back to his patients at RiverPark Chiropractic Center.

With advanced training in working with the knees, hips, feet and other extremities, Dr. Danny is well-known for providing treatment for the entire body. Taking this a step further, Dr. Danny, an avid cyclist, takes keen interest in sports injuries and provides both Low level laser therapy (LLLT) and Kinesio Taping to his patients. With three years’ experience as Team Chiropractor for Collegiate Football teams, he has had the opportunity of helping many athletes stay active.

Dr. Danny said, “Most individuals never think of Chiropractic Care for sports injuries. My approach is more natural in nature and can keep one more active and often away from painful, expensive surgeries.”

Dr. William “Danny” Thompson is accepting new patients at the Brainerd Road location.
