    Personal Chiropractic Story:

    Dr. Porter decided to pursue his career in chiropractic after an accident at age 15 left him in severe pain. Traditional 'medical care' could not fix the problems. His first visit to a chiropractor, six months after his accident, completely eliminated his pain. This impressed him so much that he decided to become a chiropractor himself. He spends his life and career helping others through chiropractic care and nutrition.
