At Felde Chiropractic, Dr. Ryan Felde and his staff of massage therapists work to realign backs and eliminate imbalance-related ailments. Through an individualized sequence of massage techniques and modalities, the muscle-kneading staff targets back pain, chronic tension, inflammation, and headaches. In addition to relieving stress and coaxing stubborn knots from delicate musculature, the specialists aim to improve circulation and increase the flow of nutrients to body tissues. After addressing specific issues, the therapists will help to soften tense muscles and increase mobility so that clients can approach daily tasks such as performing synchronized dance routines with a Slinky.
Doctor of Chiropractic Felde got his first look at the chiropractic profession when he was only 16 years old, and he never turned back. After incurring a back injury during a jet-ski accident, he sought alternatives to prescription drugs and surgery; his quest soon landed him in the office of a chiropractor, who helped him to recover fully and ignited his fascination with the field. Chiropractic therapy would continue to play an integral role in his life for years to come, helping him to keep up with the physical demands of collegiate rugby and finally leading him to pursue his own chiropractic doctorate.
Today, Dr. Felde owns his own practice, where he draws upon his wealth of personal experiences to help his clients to overcome pain with safe, noninvasive methods. Before each treatment, the doctor gathers a clear picture of his patient’s injuries through neurologic, orthopedic, and chiropractic evaluations. He then sets out to correct misalignments and knead the kinks out of vestigial tails with chiropractic adjustments, massages, and acupuncture treatments.
