Dr. Erika Maroon


Dr. Maroon was raised in Peoria, Illinois and eventually moved to Northwest Indiana to complete her undergraduate degree at Purdue University Northwest. Following the completion of her Bachelors degree, she moved to Davenport, Iowa and completed her doctorate at Palmer College of Chiropractic.

Personal Life

Dr. Maroon and her husband, Jeff, enjoy everything sports related. You may catch them on a weeknight playing slow pitch softball or ice hockey, depending on the season. They enjoy professional sports as well. It’s not uncommon for them to catch a Blackhawks game at the United Center or a Cubs game at Wrigley Field a few times a year. And no, Dr. Maroon is not a Cubs fan but Wrigley Field is her husband’s heaven on earth.

They have a 12 year old miniature Australian Shepherd named Koda who has a lot of energy and keeps them busy. Dr. Maroon enjoys taking Koda to the local dog parks and swimming at the dog friendly beaches.

They also enjoy visiting the local businesses and the community of Valparaiso. She has a huge heart and a passion for learning, teaching, and all things chiropractic.


Dr. Maroon’s goal in the next phase of her career is to educate members of the community about the safety and efficacy of chiropractic care. She strives to administer specific and direct plans to suit the individual needs of each patient.

She is a Webster Certified practitioner and finalized her certification program through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. The purpose of the certification course is to further her knowledge and skills in order to better serve pregnant mothers and the children of our community.

Dr. Maroon’s promise is to continue to advance her education in order to provide effective research based chiropractic care to the members of our community.

Dr. Porterfield is great! I came to him for treatment for injuries for a car accident and he has been super informative and makes sure I understand what he’s doing and why. I really appreciate his patience and kindness. Thank you!

If you are looking for a professional establishment that treats and cares for you like family, Porterfield Family Chiropractic is the answer. Dr. Porterfield is personable and an absolute pro at what he does. His staff that I have interacted with especially Rachele and Melissa, are phenomenal. I need to give them a shout out with scheduling and making Porterfield Family Chiropractic a great place to go for treatment. From the bottom of my heart (and entire back) thank you.

The staff here is so friendly and helped me from the moment I called looking for more information. My first appointment was spent discussing how I feel, where my issues were and symptoms I had been having…from that moment I knew that I had found the right place. They genuinely care about their patients and getting us to feel better.
