At Functional Chiropractic, our focus is to provide Huntsville the best Upper Cervical chiropractic care with the purpose of helping people with their overall health. Before attending chiropractic college, Dr. Porter was a personal fitness trainer, earning his certifications from the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM), the American Council on Exercise, and the National Council on Strength and Fitness. He is certified through NASM, not only as a personal trainer, but also as a Corrective Exercise Specialist and a Sports Performance Specialist.
When he was a strength and conditioning trainer and, now, as a chiropractor, Dr. Porter enjoys working with athletes and people who want to become more active, who desire to set goals for their own increased health, and who want to see those goals accomplished!
With his background in personal fitness training, Dr. Porter is comfortable with being his patients’ accountability partner for their health and fitness goals, whether that is weight loss, increased energy, new fitness habits, or running a Spartan Race!
Dr. Porter and his wife, Teri, train and do obstacle races and mud runs, such as the Spartan Race and Warrior Dash, throughout the year. They feel that the races’ challenges, both physical and mental, are great training for facing life’s challenges head-on and seeing yourself accomplish the goals you set for yourself! They partner their (usually) good fitness habits with (usually) good nutrition habits and supplements like Advocare’s 24 Day Challenge, Spark, and Meal Replacement Shakes.
Whether you are experiencing back pain, neck pain or other discomfort, or are an experienced athlete wanting to get to the next level, or are beginning your health journey, contact Functional Chiropractic to set up your new patient appointment and jump start your process to increased health and wellness!
