Because it is so important for each person to bond with their Doctor so they can work as a team toward better health, there is no charge for the initial consultation. This consultation is a great, risk-free opportunity to see if we are a “good fit.”
What to expect at your first visit?
You are energetically and warmly welcomed. There’s a small amount of paperwork to be done. You meet Dr. Kudick, who listens to you about your health concerns, past history, and your health goals.
A complete 16-point exam is performed including:
- range of motion
- orthopedic tests
- neurological tests
- Chiropractic analysis for vertebral subluxation (nerve interference)
- X-rays if necessary
Our Chiropractic exams are thorough and detailed. We use The Surface Electro-Myography (SEMG) to characterize and quantify muscle imbalance along the spine. These imbalances are associated with nerve interference, also called vertebral subluxation. This information is used to determine your health status and to outline a treatment plan, to help you reach your health goals..
What to expect at your second visit?
You will get a thorough report of your exam findings, and get a complete explanation of how Chiropractic can help you reach your health goals. You can ask all the questions you like! Then to get you started on reaching your goals you will need your first health adjustment. Education is an extremely important part of the healing process. The more you understand about your health and the more you participate in your own care, the faster and better you heal. Our office offers suggestions and literature related to nutrition, exercise, stretches and ways to decrease stress that help you get healthier faster.

The Chiropractic Philosophy
Chiropractic is a health care profession which emphasizes the inherent recuperative power of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery.
Health comes from within, and Chiropractic works with the power within your body to create an abundance of health, vitality, and wellness. Chiropractors know how to examine your spine and care for your nervous system to improve your current state of health and to assist you in reaching your body’s full health potential.
What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic works by restoring your own inborn ability to be healthy. Directly and indirectly, your nervous system is the master controller of all aspects of your body. When spinal bones choke or chafe nearby nerves, vital communications between your brain and body are compromised. Signals can be distorted or exaggerated, resulting in nerve irritation. When nerve messages become weak and faint, your brain and body lose touch with each other, affecting your organs, tissues, and movement. This interference to your spine is called vertebral subluxation. The inability of your brain to control and regulate your body are more serious than headaches and back pain.
Why consider Chiropractic?
Why would a person who feels healthy go to a Doctor of Chiropractic? Simple – to stay healthy. The nervous system is the master controller of the body. When it has interference the body is moving away from health – even if there are no symptoms apparent yet. Removing that interference allows the body to move towards more optimum health and well being. After all, the quality of your life is determined by the quality of your health.
Chiropractic is for everyone who is interested in a better quality of health and life no matter where they are starting from newborns to seniors.
What sets Chiropractic Apart?
The goal of Chiropractic is to restore and maintain the integrity of your nervous system by correcting vertebral subluxation. The major difference between Chiropractic and traditional western medicine is that medical doctors generally concentrate on relieving the symptom rather than correcting the cause. Chiropractic addresses the cause of the problem, bringing the body back to its highest state of health without drugs or surgery.
There are two types of Chiropractic care. One deals with symptom relief only, and the second is corrective care that helps heal the cause of the problem. Corrective care also incorporates nutrition, exercise, sleep and stress habits – all of which add to or detract from your overall health quality.
Every person has a different body, health history, and lifestyle, so no one technique works on everyone every time. Kudick Chiropractic offers a multitude of techniques depending on the needs of each person. Get detailed answers to your questions at a complimentary consultation.

Why is it important to monitor the results?
Your chiropractor wants the best results for patients like yourself. He/she can easily monitor your changes through periodic progress exams. It has been proven that a very slight amount of pressure (the weight of a dime!) can disturb the communications of the Nervous System whether or not symptoms are present. How can the chiropractor measure the results after removing pressure? The advanced technology of the Insight Millennnium. This is vitally necessary to monitor how the spine is working. It is key to improving your health and well-being.
How will this test benefit me?
For years, a major concern of the public has been, “Why do I have to keep coming back when I’m pain-free?” or “How do I know if I’m getting the proper amount of adjustments?” Now you are able to actually see the changes, and it will be easier to understand the amount and type of care you are receiving. Because of this technology, your chiropractor can provide a “tailor-made” program to meet your specific health needs.

Who does Chiropractic help?
Potentially everyone – from babies to seniors, from the sick to the healthy – can benefit from Chiropractic care.
With children, significant spinal trauma can occur at birth. Later, the spills associated with being a kid – learning to walk, ride a bike, climb trees, sports – can cause spinal problems. These problems may not manifest themselves for years when they are more serious. Getting children checked for vertebral subluxation helps prevent potential problems later in life.
Adults, especially seniors, respond extremely well to Chiropractic care – a safe, non-drug approach to their health.
