Chiropractor Phillip Kriss D.C.

Chiropractor Maple Valley WA Phillip KrissDr. Kriss opened Kriss Chiropractic in 1983 and has been practicing chiropractic ever since. He has added physical therapy and massage to his clinic, and is great with sports injuries. He runs Kriss Chiropractic and is the head doctor here. His main jobs are to run the company, maintain profitability and reputation, and be a "grunt slave" as he calls it.

His favorite thing about his job is hearing the "thank you" he often gets after an adjustment. He loves helping the lives of others and helping them do what they want to do but couldn't do before.

Dr. Kriss is from West Allis, Wisconsin. He graduated from Nathan Hale High School in 1977. He attended the University of Wisconsin and graduated in 1979. He continued on to Palmer Chiropractic College and completed his degree there in 1982. He then worked for a few chiropractors in the Pacific Northwest area before opening his own clinic.

Dr. Kriss is married to Heidi. He has three daughters (Ashley, Tiffany, and Amy), one son (Terry), and a step-daugther (Sierra). He loves to swim, bike, run, race (he is a several time Ironman), do home improvement projects, and loves photography.

One fun fact about Dr. Kriss is that he was a girl scout!


Chiropractor Maple Valley WA Lorenzo EricksonDr. Erickson first experienced the value of chiropractic care after being hit by car while riding his bicycle to class while attending BYU. Although the ER said the injuries were "minor," they offered him little help beyond pain medication. He then went to the chiropractor where his wife had just begun working, and was impressed by the attention he was given and the relief from being adjusted.

After earning his Doctor of Chiropractic degree at Parker College of Chiropractic in Dallas, Texas he worked for several years in Lewisville, Texas. Dr Erickson's 3 children were born in Texas, adding to the growing 'Texan' problem.

He then moved to Shreveport, Louisiana. While he was there, he enjoyed boudin, etouffee, and exploring bayous in his canoe for 8 years; however, he did not enjoy the wide variety of stinging insects that inhabited Louisiana. He primarily worked with patients who had personal injuries or had been injured in car accidents. He also had the opportunity to provide care for many veterans, whose injuries were often serious and long lasting. Being able to treat a wide variety of acute, chronic, mild, and severe conditions afforded him great experience which has demonstrated the effectiveness of chiropractic on the body to heal and improve function.

Dr Erickson returned full circle to his home state of Washington to give his family the opportunity to enjoy the wide variety of beautiful outdoor scenery and activities that are only found here.

He greatly looks forward to serving his community here in western Washington!​

Chiropractic Maple Valley WA Tina Schroeder Massage TherapistTina received her training at the Cortiva Institute of Federal Way, where she graduated with honors. Having experienced the powerful effects of massage after suffering from a pinched sciatic nerve, Tina is passionate about using her skills to improve the quality of life for others who are suffering from an injury or chronic pain. She is able to incorporate a variety of massage techniques into her massage sessions. These include Deep Tissue work, Myofascial Release, Positional Release, Hydro Therapy, Trigger Point Therapy, Neuromuscular Re-Education, and a variety of active and passive stretching techniques.

Tina is known for her gentle and caring approach, believing that injury treatment massage is best done after the muscles are warmed up and the client is relaxed and comfortable. Careful communication throughout the process ensures that the client is in control of how deep the massage is, and aware of what’s happening at all times. Tina enjoys working as a team to find the source of your pain and help relieve the discomfort. She is always willing to provide education about home self-care to extend the benefits of massage and help prevent future injury.

Everyone can benefit from a massage! It can help to improve range of motion, correct postural imbalances, encourage blood circulation, facilitate lymphatic drainage, reduce muscle adhesion, break up scar tissue, release tension, and improve the condition of injured, tired and overused muscles. Aside from these physical benefits, massage releases endorphins which help to promote relaxation, provide stress relief, lessen depression and anxiety, and help overcome emotional blocks. Tina will work closely with you and the Chiropractor to develop the most effective treatment plan to help you reach your goals and improve your quality of life.
