Dr. Ryan Porterfield has one motto: To recommend the best, give the best, and expect the best for each and every patient. He feels a responsibility to help people of all ages get to a stable and properly functioning spine so they can they live a life of wellness.
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, his 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.
Furthermore, he believes in maintaining the spine by being proactive so as to head symptoms off before they get to the point where they are sending a pain signal. Chiropractic along with good nutrition, adequate sleep, the right amount of water consumption, and exercise is a great start to helping your body function at its best possible level.
His mission is simple: To improve each patients quality of life.
