My experience as an Olympic athlete has given me a keen understanding of  the need for correct bio-mechanical function to reach peak performance. My education as a Doctor of Chiropractic, and my extensive post-graduate education in Sports Chiropractic, has given me the knowledge and skill set necessary to assess and deliver effective neuro-musculo-skeletal treatment for: Muscle integration technique changed my views on active care and how to take care of the body.  2018 was my toughest year of being a professional football player.  I suffered an injury in 2018 and I tried every possible method to get healthy. I got massages, I rehabbed, but with the muscle integration technique it turned on muscles that were turned off for years. I believe in taking care of the body and getting treatment but if your muscles are turned off it doesn’t matter the treatment you get, because it will only be a temporary fix. I believe in muscle integration technique because my massages last longer, my adjustments last longer and my body feels like I’m 18 again. I’m thankful for this technique and I’m especially thankful for the doctors that use it on me. I am excited for this upcoming season. “I have been a patient of Dr. Marco’s for almost 9 years. He is hands down the best Chiropractor I have ever worked with.  He is very attentive to every detail of my body. Dr. Marco continues to evolve his technique and practice as new information is made available in the sports performance world.  We worked very closely in route to me winning my first Olympic medal and I am always so grateful for his support and knowledge for keeping me at my best!” December 2018, I had my first Advanced Muscle Integration (AMIT) treatment. I was very nervous because I had one similar before and it did not go well. I got into a bad car accident August 24, 2016. The accident left me with three herniated disks in my neck and my front and back lobes of my brain were injured. It took almost a full year for my brain to heal. I did not do any rehab for my brain, I just let it rest and did not activate it at all because I would get headaches. I was able to come back and run; however, my brain was not connected to my body. There will times at practice I am running but do not feel my legs. I know I am moving but I do not feel it.  I would get injured and my brain would not register the pain. When I went to Dr. Marco, I immediately felt a difference. I went to practice that day and for the first time my brain and body was on the same page. I would tell my body to move my arms, keep your stride open and I did it without a struggle. This is the first time my body and brain were on the same page. My movement is much better. As an athlete, movement with less energy exerted is important. Now I am able to go to practice and run more efficient. “Working with Dr. Marco over the last couple years of my career has been important to my success and staying physically healthy. Dr. Marco is not just a great chiropractor, but a man with many skills that help athletes mentally and physically become better and stay injury free.” “Dr. Marco has been an invaluable resource to me since we started working together in 2006. His chiropractic expertise has been vital to my career and my success. Every week, my training was intense and it would take a toll on my body. Dr. Marco was always there to ensure that I would stay injury free and be ready to perform at my optimal level. While working with Dr. Marco, I became 2007 U.S. Champion in 400m and ran a personal best. He was also instrumental in my success in 2008, as I became a double Olympic Gold Medalist in the 400M hurdles and 4x400M Relay. Now that I’m a retired and have started coaching athletes, I send them to Dr. Marco. He is someone that I trust completely, whether it is helping an athlete to return to full training as soon as possible, analyzing biomechanical form, providing educational consultation for an accurate diagnosis or offering a preventative approach to proper stretching and recovery, Dr. Marco’s input is excellent.” “Dr Marco is one of the best chiropractors I have ever had the pleasure of working with! The 2010 USA Track and Field Outdoor Championships was the first time we worked together and the techniques he applied really got my hips and back in great shape! As a hurdler, that is invaluable! He played a key role in me winning that title.” “It wasn’t until I met Dr Marco that I fully understood the benefits of having regular chiropractic care. I wasted time and money on many different types of treatments to heal a chronic hamstring issue, but the problem was never fixed until I started working with Dr. Marco. I improved by leaps and bounds within weeks physically and mentally. My body continued to heal and allowed me to practice pain free.  It was a terrific feeling knowing my body was aligned and ready to perform at optimal levels. Dr. Marco’s extensive knowledge of sport and sports-related injuries is an added bonus.  As my coach and chiropractor, he was able to educate me on the proper running mechanics to avoid injury.” “I highly recommend Dr. Belizaire as a Chiropractor. He is an outstanding person of virtue and honor.  He has been instrumental in my rehab, recovery and successfully re-establishing myself as an elite athlete. Under his watchful eye I was able to qualify and participate in the 2008 Olympic Games. During that time period I’ve also qualified for the 2007 and 2009 World Championship teams en route to becoming the 2010 U.S. National Champion. As a former Olympic athlete and Faith guided practitioner, Dr. Belizaire has been able to connect with and understand the stresses and demands that my sport and body are required to respond to. I am currently and will always be a patient of Dr. Belizaire.” “I have had the pleasure of working with Dr. Marco on numerous occasions, in several continents around the world. He is definitely a person that I trust for both correction and maintenance when trying to optimize my body’s performance. He has the experience to know exactly what my body needs without me having to tell him. There have been times after long flights where I called on Dr. Marco to work on me.  After my session with him I was able to jump off of his table and execute perfect performances due to my body feeling perfectly aligned. It has truly been a blessing getting to know him and having the opportunity to utilize his services over the years.” “Without Dr. Marco I would have never been able to claim the title of Olympic long jump Bronze medalist. Many think that the only thing an athlete needs to do is train hard to be successful. This couldn’t be further from the truth. You must also prepare mentally, get plently of rest, fuel your body with good foods, and make sure your body is functioning at full capacity. This is where Dr. Marco comes into play. Simple daily tasks can throw your body out of whack such as: getting in and out of a car, lifting groceries, your sleeping positions,  etc.  Now imagine running from 130ft, jumping off one foot at full speed and landing into a pit of sand. I would constantly throw my body out of alignment and certain muscles would not fire. With the combination of Chiropractic and ART treatment, Dr. Marco would ensure that all muscles were firing and my nervous system was functioning properly so my body would be in full functioning capacity. Without a doubt I know that I would not have been able to achieve my childhood goal of becoming an Olympian without the expertise and skillful hands of Dr. Marco.” “In my opinion Dr. Marco Belizaire is one of the best chiropractors in the business.  His great listening skills, helpful advice, excellent care, and knowledge of the sport are truly remarkable.  When I coached Candice Hill to her record breaking 10.98 at age 16, Dr. Marco’s trusted hands kept her injury free. I highly recommend him to any athlete or an everyday person who wants to be and feel their best.  I feel truly blessed to have exceptional care for my athletes because of Dr. Marco. Thank you for being so accommodating and doing what you do day in and day out. May God continue to bless you and your family.  Endless thanks.  Cheers!”
