Meet Chiro-Joel


Dr Joel Williford is a BIrmingham based Neurologic Chiropractor by way of Mobile, AL. His coastal beginnings on the sands of Mobile are humble, as he was born unto a school teacher, his mother, and a postman, his father, and they enjoyed easy-going weekends on the beach until they left their hometown when he seven-years young.

The Williford’s moved to South Carolina and took up residence in a small town called Adams Run, just 20 miles from the historic city of Charleston, SC. Dr. Williford learned the value of hard work and familial responsibilities at a young age, working alongside his grandfather and family as a sharecropper, from “sunup-sundown”. This built Doctor Williford’s strong work ethic and encouraged his desire to enter a prominent professional field.

After graduating from Baptist Hill High School in Hollywood, South Carolina, Dr, WIlliford was accepted at South Carolina State College, where his mother happened to be a professor of Education, and he studied business management. After undergrad, Dr. WIlliford took some time to determine his career path and ended up climbing the management ladder at the local restaurant he worked at throughout college. It was there where “Chiro Joel” injured his back, and met his interest in neurologic-based chiropractic care.  

At the age of 33-years-old, Dr. WIlliford enrolled at Life University of Chiropractic in Marietta, GA, earning his degree in chiropractic. Upon receiving his diploma, Dr. WIlliford moved to Birmingham to open his own practice in Irondale, called Eastwood Chiropractic in 1996. Since earning his degree, Dr. Williford has practiced in his hometown, Mobile, Montgomery, and Tuscaloosa. He has had several partner-practices, having worked alongside Dr. Sparks of Fairfield Accident and Injury Center, from 2006--2013, Dr Todd Sayers, of Accident and Injury Centers of Alabama,,from 2013--2014, until branching out on his own again in a Tuscaloosa based private practice called Alberta City chiropractic, from 2014-- 2017.

At last, Dr. WIlliford has permanently re-established his Birmingham roots as of July 2017, opening ‘Williford Chiropractic and Wellness in Birmingham, AL, where he focuses on brain-based wellness, and auto accident chiropractic care. Dr. WIlliford loves the robust and colorful culture and history of the Magic City and longs to become Birmingham’s premiere, neurologic-based chiropractor.
