With 42 years of experience, Dr. Nelson Vetanze has perfected the most effective hands-on chiropractic techniques that allow patients to recover quickly. “My specialty is advanced hands-on techniques promoting biomechanics,” Dr. Vetanze says. “I treat not only the spine, but also shoulders, ankles, feet, hands—the total body.” His methods attract sports professionals from all over the globe, including many NFL players, heavyweight boxing champion DaVarryl Williamson and UFC ultimate fighter Mike Nickels. His clients have also included celebrities such as Burt Reynolds, William Fichtner, Michael Irvin, Brian Bosworth and Nelly.

Dr. Vetanze emphasizes communication with patients, inviting them to help determine the best treatment approach. “Here it’s not big doctor, little patient,” he says. “Instead, we work together as a team.” Dr. Vetanze helps patients develop individualized recovery plans that often include nutritional counseling and referrals to other Omni practitioners such as massage therapists, physical therapists, trigger-point therapists, reiki master and acupuncturists. When necessary, he also refers patients to radiologists, internists, neurosurgeons, orthopedic surgeons and psychologists.

Dr. Steve Slava Belits

Doctor of Chiropractic

Dr. Steve Belits takes a gentle approach to chiropractic care. Recognizing that all patients have unique needs, he works with each client to design an ideal treatment plan.

Before performing an adjustment, he often incorporates core stabilization exercises, physical therapy interventions and strategies such as trigger-point therapy and Active Release Technique (ART) that relax the muscles and enable the body to adjust more easily.

After graduating in 2005 from the Logan College of Chiropractic in St. Louis, Missouri, Dr. Belits opted to specialize in occupational and preventive chiropractic care. He also works extensively with professional and amateur athletes and patients suffering from auto accident injuries.
