Frequently Asked Questions
Does Chiropractic care hurt?
Dr. Belitz uses a techinque that is so gentle that it can be used with newborns. Dr. Belitz does not do the vigorous, more forcefull type of treatment most commonly associated wth chiropractic. There is no twisting or "cracking".
Are you going to take x-rays?
We do not take X-rays. If you had X-rays taken in the emergency room or by another doctor, please bring them with you to your appointment. While X-rays only a part of the story, they can be an important part of your exam. If you dont have X-rays, and we need X-rays in order to recommend a treatment plan for you, we refer you to an X-ray service.
I have been told I need surgery on my back, should I bother coming in?
Yes, our apporach is very unique and we have a specialized protocol that was developed specifically for people who are thinking abot back surgery. I realize that there are some people who get god results from surgery, but that is the minority of people who go that route. The biggest problem with surgery is that you can never undo what happens in the surgery. So if you come out of the surgery feeling worse than you did when you went in, there is little to nothing that can be done to correct it. Amost every medical doctor you talk to suggests that you try every other available option before you have surgery. This approach has been shown to be extremely effective and in the last 9 years since we started focusing on back surgery candidates, no one has gottn worse and the large majority of people end up not needing to go to surgery.
Why to people seem to keep going in for treatments to a chiropractor?
Chiropractic treatments help the body handle the effects of stress. This stress could be physical like in a car accident or falling down some stairs. Ths stress could be chemical like dealing with the efects of prescription drugs or the stress could be mental emotional. Once we get the body to a optimal state and get rid of the effects of the stress, you will find that you feel better and have more energy than you probably though you were capable of, however, most people do not lead stress free lives and when you have a stressful event, your body may need som help to stay at that optimum level of health that you have come to enjoy and expect.

I was just in an accident, is it safe for me to come in?
Not only is it safe, it is important that you get an assessment as soon as possible after an accident. If the accident caused problems in your nervous system, the healing ability of your body will not work very well. If we do find a problem, the technique that Dr. Belitz uses will open up the nerves in a very gentle way and your body will heal much faster and efficiently.
