Meet Dr. Nick

I want to pass on a letter from Dr. Nick whom you may or may not know is the new Chiropractor in the front office. Some of you have seen him in the gym working out and some of you have already seen him as patients. Here is a letter from him wanting to introduce himself to all of you.

“Hello CFFS Crew,

First I’d like to thank you for allowing me to join the CFFS community and practice in the front of the building.  I have had the pleasure of working with quite a few of you so far, and I’ve had the pleasure of doing my first seven wod’s in the past two weeks.  Good times.  I am enjoying them though, and can already see improvements in my fitness level.  I’ve also been showing many of my patients around the gym and have successfully converted one over from another local CrossFit gym.

Anyways, the point of this letter is just to introduce myself to you all and let you know a bit about me as a chiropractor.   Along with treating issues of the spine, my extensive training in extremity and soft tissue injuries has allowed me become a mainstay in the athletics industry.  I originally made a name for myself in California treating top level cyclists, triathletes, and marathoners.  I moved to Arizona a few years ago when given the opportunity to treat athletes at the Athletes’ Performance Institute in Phoenix.  Over the past three years, I’ve had the pleasure of treating many athletes such as Robert Griffin III, Jacoby Ellsbury, Matt Hasselbeck, and Brock Osweiler, to name a few.  Now I travel to the World Athletics Center daily in Phoenix to treat Olympic athletes who are taking advantage of Arizona’s great weather to train in.  I am currently working with athletes from nine different countries, including several gold medalists and world champions. 

I’m in the office for a couple of hours every morning before heading to Phoenix, and then back again in the afternoon.  Stop by and say hi if my door is open.  I’d like to meet any and all of you that I can.  I have enjoyed my first month at CFFS.  I look forward to being a part of the community for quite some time.

Nick Porterfield, D.C.”
