Welcome to Portage Chiropractic!


Located in Portage, Cambria County, Pennsylvania, Portage Chiropractic has served the region with high-quality health care since 1999.  Portage Chiropractic’s Dr. James M. Herald has over 25 years of experience in successful treatment of all types of spinal and musculoskeletal conditions.

Patients from Portage, Cresson, Ebensburg, Johnstown, and Altoona regularly benefit from Dr. Herald's exclusive use of the low-force Activator Methods Chiropractic Technique.  The Activator Adjusting Instrument gives consistent, low-force, high speed chiropractic adjustments.  This approach allows Dr. Herald to avoid apprehension and discomfort sometimes associated with the manual “cracking and popping” techniques.

Over 50% of our new patients have never been to a chiropractor before.  Give Dr. Herald an opportunity to perform a detailed exam and x-rays and we will give you a comprehensive report that describes your problem, the care needed to correct the problem and the cost.  Only when you decide our care is right for you will we begin your chiropractic adjustments.  Give us a call at 814-736-9897; we look forward to seeing you!

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "My daughter was having pain in her neck shooting into her skull. After one visit to Dr. Herald, my daughter felt better and she convinced me to give him a try. I had constant burning in my neck with pain in my right arm. I was told to have surgery on my neck and shoulder but I never needed it. Dr. Herald is absolutely the best and the Activator Method is painless!"
    Missy and Donna, E.
  • "Living with daily migraines is hard with a full-time job and two active boys. Now I can go for months without a migraine and when I do get one, I go to see Dr. Herald and it goes away."
    Tina and sons, Portage
