There are many chiropractors in the area, and you only have one back. Since your spine is a very important part of your body, you don't want to put it in the hands of just anyone. Then you should go to Porterfield Family Chiropractic in Valparaiso.
"What makes me stand out above others is that I do things a certain way," Dr. Ryan Porterfield said. "If I've never seen you before I will do a thorough examination and get as much information as I can before we start treatment. Next thing I like to do is go through and teach my clients about why they are feeling the way they are feeling...the other thing is that I'm a likable guy. You have to be nice and approachable and answer questions that your clients have. These things are important to them."
Dr. Porterfield isn't one to sugar-coat things. If he feels that there is an issue with a client's health he will say so. Then he will go over possible treatments and the costs so that there are no surprises.
"I feel that if you are as up front as possible it really makes a difference," Dr. Porterfield said. "It's more important to make them well than it is to worry about costs. And often my patients will get all of the information and realize that it's not that bad."
At Porterfield Chiropractic, all people are welcome. Cost is something to be considered so Dr. Porterfield and his staff try their best to work with each person who comes through the door to make sure that they get what they need at a price that they can afford. This means payment plans are initiated if needed and insurance companies are worked with.
"If it works for them it works for us," Dr. Porterfield said.
Education is also a very big thing at the clinic as well. Not only are things explained during appointments, on Wednesday nights Dr. Proterfield offers a class that's open to the public provides thorough and eye-opening information about health and wellness.
"The more that people understand what is happening with their bodies, the more willing they are to take care of problems that arise," Dr. Porterfield said. "And then the word spreads and more people are helped."
