Dr. Baird has been practicing the science and art of chiropractic since 1982 when he graduated from Logan College of Chiropractic. Dr. Baird has always had an interest in helping others, but his focus on Chiropractic as the means to fulfill that dream came following a personal health crisis of his own. After a couple years of being treated unsuccessfully through traditional allopathic medicine an unfortunate work injury caused him to seek the aid of a chiropractor for an explanation, and as they say the rest is history.
Although Dr. Baird practices general family alternative care, he most enjoys helping others suffering from chronic health issues; particularly diabetes, but also arthritis, high blood pressure and gastrointestinal conditions. Through lifestyle counseling, appropriate nutritional and dietary balancing he has improved multiple generations.
Following his graduation, Dr. Baird worked as an associate doctor for four years before settling in Edwardsville and beginning private practice. Throughout his practice Dr. Baird has always used the model of the old school family doctor to communicate and teach individuals and families about health and wellness. During this time he has also continued to advance his education to remain at the forefront of knowledge to best aid those who seek him out. Dr. Baird's office strives to create an enlightened and refreshing, healing environment while incorporating the latest state-of-the-art technology and information. Families and individuals search out Dr. Baird's practice for improved health and wellness in addition to his expertise in the principles of anti-aging.
Dr. Baird has become one of the leading health and wellness advocates and educators in Edwardsville since 1988. His belief that the strength of a community depends on the health of its residents spurs his contribution of countless hours to the education and promotion of health and wellness. As a volunteer doctor or the Foundation for Wellness Education, hundreds of area residents are educated annually on the healing power of the body and overall benefits of healthy lifestyle choices.
Dr. Baird is the proud parent of two daughters, Jennilee and Jessica. Dr. Baird is an empty-nester who enjoys catching up on his reading, working in the yard gardening or do-it-yourself home improvement projects when not in the office. The small town atmosphere of Edwardsville and Glen Carbon was the initial attraction for Dr. Baird. It reinforces his commitment to positively impact the health of the community through his desire to fill the role of the small-town 'family doctor.'
And of course Dr. Baird gets adjusted regularly!
