A properly functioning spine has the ability to fix many of the ailments that can tend to plague everyone at some point or another. The body is an amazing machine that is controlled by the brain via the spine. The body wants to function at its peak but the brain needs to be able to communicate flawlessly with the nervous system and if it cannot, the body sends out signals that we call symptoms.

As a Chiropractor, Dr. Porterfield’s specialty is to find the root cause of each symptom and to align the spine so the brain can once again talk to the nervous system to keep the body functioning at its best.

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.

I started seeing Dr. Porterfield during my second trimester of pregnancy. He helped me feel comfortable throughout my entire pregnancy – I didn’t have any of the back pains or “common” discomforts that I had while pregnant with my first. Honestly, it was a night & day difference. My labor was only 5 hours which I definitely attribute to being properly aligned. Dr. Porterfield is not only an awesome Chiropractor but also a great teacher who keeps you informed every step of the way. By far this was the best decision I made in terms of prenatal care.
