Dr Christopher Belics

Advanced Chiropractic Care

We aim to eliminate pain, but also make sure that the pain does not return in the future. Chiropractic care is more than just making the pain disappear. It is about learning, understanding and taking care of your body to improve your quality of life. As a chiropractor, I understand that, although my patients may be diagnosed with the same condition, they respond very differently to treatments. For this reason, we tailor a specific plan of action to meet your needs, goals and unique medical and physical condition.

What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is an overall way of looking at the human body. Piece by piece, the body is connected as a whole. A problem in the arm could stem from a neck problem that worked its way through the series of connections within the human body. Chiropractic is based on the idea that the body is self-sustaining and self-healing. The body is in essence completely controlled by the brain through its connection via the spinal cord and the vast networks of nerves that make up the body. When this system is not functioning at its peak, the overall performance of the human body is lacking.

In the chiropractic world, drugs and medicine are not utilized as a form of treating a patient. While supplementation and nutrition are almost always a part of the bigger picture, drugs and prescriptions can be viewed as band-aids to treat symptoms rather than going to the source and treating the real problem. Essentially, drugs may only be used in order to mask the underlying problem, but they don’t actually fix it.

While it's often perceived that the chiropractor is solely here to treat back and neck pain, this is simply a small piece of what the profession really is capable of handling. Chiropractors not only treat soft and hard tissue problems such as sciatica and joint pain, but are largely called on to deal with more significant issues. Some of these issues include fibromyalgia, allergies, insomnia, headaches and many more.

What can I expect on my visits?

Going to the Chiropractor is a new experience for many of us. Maybe we've heard through a friend or have done some research online. It's possible that you are just fed up with living in pain and it's time to do something about it. In either case, your first visit to the chiropractor will really be about getting to know the chiropractor and discussing your history, current condition and goals.

As with any doctor's visit, you'll start by finishing some new patient paperwork. Upon meeting with the doctor, you'll discuss your concerns and expectations as well as have the chance to ask any questions you may have. Dr. Belics will perform a physical examination and possibly take a few x-rays if deemed necessary. Once this is complete, we'll take a look at the overall results of our conversation and the exams. Together, we'll come up with a plan of action which will begin when you are completely satisfied and ready to move forward. Because time is a precious commodity in today’s world, Dr. Belics never wants to keep his patients waiting or waste time with them. The entire process and each visit is a smooth process that is explained in great detail each day.

Can Chiropractic help you?

Chiropractic is a form of healing that can help people from all walks of life. If you've ever been in a car accident, played a sport, fell down or just bumped into something too hard, it's very possible that you are not functioning at your best due to a misalignment within the skeletal system. Chiropractors have the ability and skill to remove these interruptions or misalignments and allow the body to perform as it was meant to perform. Allowing a chiropractor to get you back on track both chemically and structurally will bring your body back to the proper state it should be in to perform at its peak.

Your expectations

With all patients, everyone’s body responds to outside stimuli in different ways. Different spinal conditions respond differently to treatment, and also, each person with the same condition responds in a different manner. Dr. Belics is devoted to working to his full potential in order to alleviate pain and keep that pain away for good.
