I would appreciate to take this opportunity to personally welcome you to RiverPark Chiropractic and Acupuncture website. This dynamic health center provides the Chattanooga area with modern, researched- based chiropractic, rehabilitative, nutritional care, and acupuncture. I have structured the clinic to promote a pro-active health care approach, so my patients can better understand their problem and take a responsible and active role in their quest for optimal health. I think that my clinic’s philosophy and approach can truly change the lives of those we serve.
Society’s level of education has risen dramatically in the blast decade. People are demanding more information about heir health than ever before. Knowledge is the foundation of a healthy lifestyle. An old saying goes, “knowledge is power”. I want you to have the power over your health and decisions you make regarding your health and the health of your family and friends. Your care may involve exercises, stretches, diet modifications. We encourage our patients to ask questions to clarify any uncertainty regarding their health or treatment. This approach allows our patients to actively participate in their course of treatment and usually means a faster healing time.
We are constantly keeping abreast with the latest, research-based information on patient treatment and protocols. This creates a Health facility that is rich and supportive for our patients and helps them reach their goals.
Remember that chiropractic and acupuncture are a great combo! I want to see it work for you
Yours in Health,
Dr. William Thompson, BS. DC. CFMP.
