We have some very exciting news! We’re expanding our team here at Salida Sport and Spine.
Meet Dr. Alan Stoughton!
Originally from Crystal Lake, IL, about an hour north of Chicago, Dr. Stoughton graduated from Northwestern Health Science University with a Doctorate in Chiropractic in 2004. He returned to his hometown to practice for the next 9 years before moving to Colorado's Front Range in 2013 for the biking and climbing. Once here, he developed interests in backcountry skiing and whitewater rafting, and on the right day he has a hard time deciding which to do! In 2023 he moved to the Arkansas River Valley full time with his wife, Laurel, their two dogs, and cat to live a lifestyle that they find brings them more adventure, peace, and joy.
In practice, Dr. Stoughton likes to keep it simple by saying that "chiropractic is just making things work the way they're supposed to". A Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician, Dr. Stoughton uses chiropractic adjustments, dry needling, and therapeutic modalities to reduce pain, speed healing, and improve athletic performance in all patient populations.
In coming to work for Dr.s Paffenroth and Herndon, he believes that he is in a position from which he can help anyone walking through the doors of the office with a combination of experience, education, and empathy. His goals for his patients are to keep them as active as they'd like to be and living the highest quality of life possible.
Dr. Stoughton will be starting Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.
Stop by the office and say hi!
