Dr. Curtis Buddingh D.C., D.I.C.S

Dr. Buddingh has been practicing chiropractic for over 40 years. He is a world renowned lecturer, teacher, author, and inventor of The Chiropractic Belt™.

He has been teaching to the chiropractic and dental professions for many years in the art of Craniopathy and Sacro Occipital Technique. Dr. Buddingh personally studied under Dr. M.B. DeJarnette for 22 years, he was one of the “first twelve” chiropractors to be certified in S.O.T. and Craniopathy. Dr. Buddingh was awarded the Chiropractor of the Year in 1973, and received a Diplomat in Craniopathy in 1982. Dr. Buddingh has presented beginning and advanced S.O.T. and Cranial seminars nationally and internationally

After moving to the Coachella Valley in 2001, Dr. Buddingh has used his practice to research new procedures to help the senior community have a more active and productive pain free life. He has always preferred to have his patients experience a multi disciplinary approach, as it shortens their recovery time. Over the years he has developed many innovative procedures that are taught in S.O.T. and Craniopathy today. The Sphenomaxillary Cranial Procedure, the Vagus Nerve Release, and the First Rib Release are three of the most pivotal.
The vagus nerve is one of 12 cranial nerves. It extends from the brain stem to the abdomen, via various organs including the heart, esophagus and lungs. Also known as cranial nerve X, the vagus forms part of the involuntary nervous system and commands unconscious body procedures, such as keeping the heart rate constant and controlling food digestion. The vagus is the longest of all cranial nerves.

Patients with Movement Disorders, Degenerative Nerve Disease, TMJ, Learning Difficulties , and some forms and Autism often respond favorably to Cranial Manipulation. Cranial procedures promote vascularity and circulation to the Central Nervous System and other tissue.

He scientifically engineered, developed and patented The Chiropractic Belt™. The Chiropractic Belt™ promotes healing and alleviates pain while increasing the function of the pelvis. The pelvis is considered the foundation of the spine. The Chiropractic Belt™ stabilizes and normalizes the pelvis. With continued use hypertonic muscles in the back and legs relax, improving circulation while relieving pain in the back, knees, ankles, and feet. The Chiropractic Belt™ relieves pain, discomfort, and instability caused by ligament and other connective tissue sprain/strain of the lower back. It restores integrity and balance to the pelvis and sacroiliac joint. This allows the patient to experience an improvement in overall health and a greatly improved quality of life.
