Plano Chiropractor | About HealthWorks

Delivering quality chiropractic and wellness care to the North Texas community since 2005.

Dr. Porterfield began practice in 2005 and Dr. Taylor began in 2006. Both doctors came together in their current practice, HealthWorks: A Family Wellness Center, in 2010. We actually started the combined center as a way to offer more to the community: our team is now able to work with more families who want vibrant health as part of their life, as well as provide our Radical Health Workshops, corrective chiropractic care, massage therapy, cooking coaching, wellness lifestyle coaching, nutritional counseling and creating wellness assessments.

Creating a Community of Health and Wellness

HealthWorks creates a community of health and wellness for our practice members. We believe that through education, leadership, and unsurpassed health care we give the families of our community the ability to reach their full potential and optimal health.

We encourage our patients to achieve the highest levels of health they can through educational opportunities (like this website, our Power Health Workshops, Revalescent Readers monthly book club and much more), we discover the secrets to longevity and optimal health throughout life.

Our desire is to see our practice members abandon the misconceptions about health often found in America today; “sickness care” or just waiting around for symptoms to start doesn’t make sense when our health is at stake. Instead, we promote the emerging “wellness care” model; health is created by our actions to promote wellness in our bodies.

Our office offers a type of Chiropractic called Corrective Care

We specialize in correcting the underlying problem, not just getting rid of symptoms for a little while, only for them to return again a few weeks or months later. We do this through a specialized form of chiropractic called Grostic Upper Cervical Specific technique, which looks specifically at Atlas or C1.

This C1 area has global effects in the body, including heart, lung, and postural control of the entire body. We commonly refer to C1 as the “main breaker switch” of the spine, similar to the main breaker switch in your fuse box at home. Once the underlying nerve stress is removed, it allows the body to flourish with health and we build from there with nutrition, exercise & movement, and positive mental outlook.

You’re the Boss!

In our office we have a saying that goes, “the patient is the boss.” What this means is that we believe that each person is responsible for his or her own health. Our job as doctors is not to “tell our patients what to do”, but rather to facilitate and advise our practice members toward their own health goals. We’re here to serve you, how can we help?

Call HealthWorks today!

Regardless of your health goals, our team is here for you. Our practice members are family, and you will feel that the moment you walk through the doors. Give our Plano chiropractic office a call to schedule an appointment so we can help you and your family! We’re excited to be a part of your Health Team!
