Duben Holistic Chiropractic Center 

Doctors Alan Duben and Lindsay Erickson use a combination of holistic therapies to help their patients reduce and control many symptoms. They aim to help patients understand what is causing their symptoms and find ways to address the issue in a holistic, natural manner. They understand that the three main influences on the body are structure, nutrition and emotions. The body's structure is sensitive to injury and will be thrown out of balance if an injury or illness occurs that creates inflammation and pain. One of the most effective tools is nutrition. By eliminating foods that increase inflammation and adding whole food supplements, a person can begin the healing process and give the body the nutrients it needs to heal. Emotion is also another key component in the healing process. Doctors Duben and Erickson can help patients uncover emotional imbalances that can hamper the healing process. | 805.494.1339
