Anderson Chiropractic Team
Chad N. Anderson D.C. OWNER
Dr. Anderson was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio, where the majority of his family still resides today. He began his collegiate studies at The Ohio State University before transferring to The University of Cincinnati, where he earned a Bachelor of Science in Education degree with an emphasis in Exercise and Fitness. Dr. Anderson spent time as a strength and conditioning intern at Xavier University where he was responsible for supervising the weight room, maintaining the day-to-day operations of the facility, and developing and instructing strength and conditioning programs for the athletes. Eager to better himself and continue his education, Dr. Anderson moved to Florida to study chiropractic medicine at Palmer College of Chiropractic, Florida Campus. While at Palmer, hard work and dedication earned him a place on the Dean’s and President’s Lists before graduating with Cum Laude Honors.
During his time in Florida, Dr. Anderson met his wife, Erica, with whom he later moved to North Carolina. He teamed up with Miller Chiropractic Group and provided his services to patients throughout the eastern part of the state. Dr. Anderson treated patients in Rocky Mount, Edenton, Plymouth, Edgecombe, Tarboro, and Nashville; he was also asked to extend his services to patients at a sister office in Burlington.
In 2009 the Andersons decided to move to the quaint, yet fast growing, town of Holly Springs. The two of them along with their daughter, Alexandra, son, Alaric, and Jack Russell Terriers, Tanner and Porscha are thrilled to call this beautiful town their home. After sharing knowledge with patients across North Carolina, Dr. Anderson is now pleased to provide his expertise to the residents of Holly Springs and surrounding communities.
Alexander J. Portner D.C.
Dr. Portner grew up in Pennsylvania; his family moved frequently, but he spent most of his early childhood in the Bloomsburg area and his later childhood in the Harrisburg area. He met his wife, Elizabeth, while doing volunteer work at a summer camp near Hershey Park.
Dr. Portner became interested in chiropractic care at a young age. He was treated by a chiropractor for severe asthma as a child and was later given the opportunity to shadow a chiropractor. There he witnessed an older woman come into the office, hunched over, hardly able to walk even with the help of her son; after her adjustment, she left the office on her own two feet, walking next to her son who was holding her folded up walker. It was at that moment that Dr. Portner knew what he wanted to do with his life.
Dr. Portner graduated from New York Chiropractic College in April 2015 with honors. He quickly opened his own practice, “Portner Chiropractic” and continued teaching physiotherapy, chiropractic technique, and basic sciences at New York Chiropractic College. In August of 2016 he and his wife moved down to Raleigh, North Carolina to be closer to family. They are both excited to be setting down roots and eventually have a family in this wonderful city. In his free time, Dr. Portner enjoys playing board and games, as well as calm nights at home with a good movie, his wife, and their 2 cats.
