In strengthening your immune system, we diminish the stress that body has to put energy into. Our adjustments and various treatments help increase white blood cell counts to begin relieving stress, freeing up the ability to attack other symptoms and pains.
We have been getting very favorable results on facial muscles and skin with our anti-aging acupuncture techniques. Women who received these treatments were very pleased with the results.
Chiropractic treatment boosts production of immune cells and also raises endorphins, helping combat anxiety and resulting symptoms. Chiropractic adjustments act as a natural "antidepressant."
Arthritis, Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis
In many cases the cause for these afflictions are unknown. Let us help develop a comprehensive treatment plan to reduce the progression of these conditions. Therapies include releasing blockages (subluxations) which can compromise your joints and changing to a diet that is anti-inflammatory.
Back Pain Relief
We offer gentle pain relief for spinal related pain. Nerves exiting between vertebrae can become impinged by arthritis, bone spurs, thinning discs, and misaligned bones, or stretched and strained ligaments from injuries and other causes. Chiropractic works safely to relieve pain without the potentially damaging effects of Steroids, NSAIDs, Salicylates and narcotic opiates.
An inflammation of tissues that lubricate the fascia, joints, bursitis responds well to ultrasound, deep tissue myofascial release PEMF, and diathermy and does not usually require drugs or surgery.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS)
This epidemic problem from keyboard and repetitive hand use and labor is primarily remedied with manipulation of the wrist and physiotherapy. Why have surgery when you don't have to? Try chiropractic first for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, many times it is misdiagnosed and it is coming from the neck area not the wrist area. Most of our CTS cases don't end up being referred for surgery.
Colds and Flu
Regular chiropractic treatments increase the response of the immune system and enhance white blood cell count, thereby preventing the onset of viral infections and stopping them earlier if they do occur.
Colic in Children
Some babies suffer from colic as a result of vaginal or c-section birth trauma that may have created spinal distortion. Chiropractic adjustments may be effective in treating those types of cases.
Disc Herniation, Disc Bulge, Blown Disc, Slipped Disc, Prolapsed Disc
Disc problems are one of our areas of expertise. We have saved dozens of patients from needing back or neck surgery with our natural disc decompressing techniques.

We can assist with the pain caused by these complicated cases found mostly in women. Fibromyalgia has trigger points causing multiple body aches. Chiropractic is part of a comprehensive approach to relieving this chronic condition. Adjustments, along with a special diet, help to relieve pain. At times, medications such as Guaifenesin may be prescribed by specialists.
Foot Issues, Over-Pronation (Flat Feet), Heel Spurs, Plantar Fasciitis
These conditions can be helped with taping, ultrasound, ice, heel massage, and custom or ready-made orthotic devices. Without balancing the feet, many spinal adjustments don't "hold" your spine in a corrected position.
We treat Migraine Headaches, Cluster Headaches, Muscle Tension Headaches, Sinus Headaches. Although causes and symptoms for headaches vary widely, there are several chiropractic treatments that can help. Most headaches are due to misalignment of the top three upper neck vertebrae, the occiput, atlas and axis.
Lower Back Pain/Spasms
This is our "Bread and Butter," we are lower back pain experts. By developing treatment plans customized to your diagnosis, we have rarely NOT helped a patient who is experiencing simple lower back pain. Finding the true underlying cause of your pain may prevent future reoccurrences.
Mid-Back and Rib Pain
These conditions often respond in just a few days, especially when they occur in young people. In older patients, the cause of mid-back pain can be complicated like osteoporosis, scoliosis, arthritis or subluxations. We'll diagnose the cause for the correct direction of treatment.
Nerve Impingement Syndrome
We can locate and relieve the single nerve that causes this painful malady, whether it be neck, mid or lower back.
Neck and Arm Pain
This is frequently caused from degenerating discs in the neck in persons as young as 35 years of age. We help these cases without the use of drugs or surgery. Spinal stenosis is often a cause of radiating arm pain.
Rotator Cuff Injuries/Shoulder Tendonitis
The shoulder can be complicated to treat. We are experts in these problems. Should you fail to get better with our natural approach, we can recommend the best orthopedic specialists in the area. There are special modalities, home and gym exercises and adjustments that can help.
Sciatica, Sciatic Neuralgia and Neck "Pinched Nerves"
Most pinched nerves are caused by misaligned bones of the spine. This is what we do BEST. Spinal adjustments decompress the sciatic nerve at the disc level and spinal nerves of the neck and give relief within hours to days. We reduce the bulging of herniated discs.
We analyze leg length to determine if this is the cause of your scoliosis. We X-Ray and give special treatment. Childhood scoliosis needs to be checked every six months. Make sure to have all your children checked by Dr.Budincich as they grow up.
Including sinusitis and rhinitis, respiratory problems often have a relationship with immune and nervous systems and may be alleviated without medication. Allergies to food, airflow channels or pollen may play a factor.
Sprains: Hip, Knee, Shoulder, Ankle and Elbow
Ligament tissue that is torn or stretched that may affect the swelling and pain in a joint. These may heal more slowly than a broken bone and may require taping or casting modalities or a rigid brace. The individual sprain must be evaluated to determine the course of treatment. Ice and ultrasound speed recovery.
Tennis Elbow (Medial and Lateral Epicondylitis)
This is a common malady among golfers, framers, painters, computer users and ladies with very large babies or purses – in addition to those who enjoy tennis. Whatever the cause, we can create an individualized therapy to take care of Tennis Elbow. Therapies include bracing, home care, soft tissue adjustments and modalities such as ultrasound and PEMF.
Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction (TMJ), "Jaw Joint"
We have special adjustments for the TMJ joint and some simple home care and recommendations. "Night Guards" or in-mouth braces may be required.
Auto crash injuries are particularly problematic and can become chronic particularly in the neck area. We treat these cases with great results: Quick pain relief and the correction of subluxation complexes that are caused by the massive G-forces that the neck and spine absorbed in the accident. We can cooperate with your legal representative in resolving both the medical and medial issues of your case resulting in faster recoveries, fewer trials, and less frustration. Dr. Budincich produced a DVD presentation of "Whiplash Injuries" and these are available at our office.
