Meet Our Team
Dr. Jon Budihas, D.C.
Dr. Jon Budihas is originally from the small, beach-side community of Ludington, Michigan. He attended Michigan State University where he graduated with a bachelor’s degree in interdisciplinary studies in social sciences. Upon graduation, Dr. Jon received his secondary teaching certification in civics, economics, and history, among others. While serving as a high school teacher in Michigan and North Carolina, Dr. Jon discovered that he had what he considered to be a different calling.
As a high school and college athlete, Dr. Jon suffered many injuries. It was recalling his previous experience with principled chiropractic that caused him to leave his former career as an educator to pursue a chiropractic degree from the largest and most respected chiropractic school in the world, Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa.
Dr. Jon has been blessed with the privilege of serving at some of the largest and most successful chiropractic practices in the country. While in school, he studied alongside one of the leading extremity adjusting experts in the world, in Bettendorf, Iowa. He completed over 300 additional hours of training, solely focused on the extremities of the body. This means that outside of the spine, he is able to help people with a variety of other health concerns in areas including the hips, knees, ankles, feet, shoulders, elbows, wrists, hands, and even the TMJ!
After completing his preceptorship in Golden, Colorado, he decided to settle in North Denver and continue to serve the greater Denver community. Dr. Jon has extensive training and experience with in family care, pediatrics, athletes, and overall wellness promotion. Dr. Jon’s passion is to educate and care for the people and families of greater Denver through neurologically-based chiropractic care so that each man, woman, and child can grow up living happy, healthy, unencumbered lives as was intended.
In his free time, Dr. Jon enjoys spending time with his family, working out, reading, and listening to podcasts.
Before moving to beautiful Colorado, Laura graduated from the University of Iowa with a bachelor’s degree in Health and Human Physiology. After graduation, she moved to Des Moines, Iowa and worked as an office manager for Des Moines Acupuncture Clinic. Here, Laura discovered her passion to help others gain control of their health. Growing up, Laura had never been to a chiropractor nor did she believe in chiropractic care. Although she had suffered from headaches, back pain, and allergies, she didn’t think chiropractic could help her. She also didn’t like the fact that someone would be cracking or twisting her neck and back. When Dr. Jon told her about the Torque Release Technique and how it doesn’t involve any cracking, twisting, or popping, she decided to give it a try and hasn’t looked back since. She has not had any pain and hasn’t had to take any pain medications since coming under principled chiropractic care! Laura is very excited to be here in Colorado and be a part of Cardinal Chiropractic! Her mission is to help serve and educate others, just as Dr. Jon has with her.
Katie moved to the beautiful state of Colorado from Arkansas and has enjoyed every minute of it! She loves to explore the trails and parks nearby with her dog, Piper. She is super excited to join the Cardinal Team because chiropractic care has impacted her life in such a positive way. From being on daily preventative medications for migraines and taking hundreds of milligrams of ibuprofen to cope with hip pain, she now is pain-free and no longer depends on any medications – all because of chiropractic care. She graduated with her Bachelor’s Degree in Communication Studies from Arkansas State University. She loves making connections with people and is blessed to get to do that every day at Cardinal. She is looking forward to meeting you and watching your journey to healing through specific, scientific chiropractic care!
