Dr. Bud: Dr. Michael Budincich, more commonly known to his patients as "Dr. Bud," has been a thriving Doctor of Chiropractic for twenty years. Though, it was the hand of destiny that drafted the course of Budincichs life. His initial plan was to be a dentist and he pursued that goal with the help of a track and field scholarship at USC. Looking back Budincich says, "it was a life changing experience that altered my focus." During heavy training as a shot-putter, he suffered a back injury which seriously compromised his athletic career. Budincich committed himself to an intense program of traditional physical therapy for over one month with U.S.C. trainers to no avail. He became quite anxious, a significant competition was looming and his injury was still not healing. In desperation, Budincich sought the advice of his coach who then drove him to a chiropractor. The results Budincich experienced were amazing. After just three treatments he felt well enough to compete and placed third in shot put and discuss events the following weekend. A week later, Budincich who was just a freshman, beat a senior from UC Berkley in a PAC 8 Conference Duel breaking his lifetime best. The speed of his recovery and resulting athletic achievements have had a long lasting affect on Budincichs life. These extraordinary events motivated him to re- direct his focus from pursuing dentistry to becoming a chiropractor. Budincich says "if I had remained injured I would have probably lost my scholarship and subsequently never earned my degree."
In a demonstration of gratitude for his good fortune, Dr. Budincich has chosen to follow in the footsteps of the chiropractor who helped him while he was a competing athlete. Now, two decades later, Dr. Budincich provides free chiropractic exams and care to athletes at several schools and Universities including USC, Pasadena City College, Cresenta Valley High School, and Temple City High School. Budincich says, "this is the kind of profession that continues to inspire you because it works! And, it works without drugs." The ultimate recognition for Budincich is watching students who he has treated go on to become chiropractors.
Dr. Bud is married to Dr. Catherine Budincich, also a chiropractor. They have 2 young children, a son Nick, and daughter Andja Milena.
