For the first episode, we want to introduce Dr. Portman better. He is the owner of Wards Corner Chiropractic. He has a Doctorate in Chiropractic and has multiple certifications, including his certification as a Chiropractic Sports Physician, which is where his passion for chiropractic care started.
He always played sports as a kid - so naturally, he was well acquainted with his local chiropractor. When he went to undergrad, he initially went for communications with a specialty in advertising. He quickly decided that his career path wasn't for him. After having a few conversations with people, he cared deeply about - he decided to transition into chiropractic.
It wasn't an easy transition, as he didn't have many science courses behind his belt. After taking science courses for a year, he moved to Missouri to become a Chiropractor.
Since then, he initially set up shop with another chiropractor; he moved to Saint Bernard, then eventually moved to Loveland, Ohio. He has been here since 2003 and has NO intention of moving ever again.
