When I decided to open the Chiropractic Health Center of Bristol in 1983 I searched several towns in the area that were in need of chiropractic care. Bristol, CT was a small town compared to where I grew up (Brooklyn), but it was large enough to sustain a thriving practice. Since the surrounding towns of Burlington, Farmington, Plainville and Southington were so close, I felt many of the residents of those communities would find it convenient to come to a Bristol chiropractor for treatment.
My office is dedicated to the well-being of my patients. I am passionate about the care I give my patients, and I strive to teach my patients about wellness so they in turn can make a difference in the health of their entire family. I strive to implement “best practice” methods for each patient, and provide effective, evidence-based care. It’s not easy to change your lifestyle. If it was, everyone would be doing it; as a pilot and black belt in Kyokushin karate, I know the benefits of discipline and dedication. I can help you attain the discipline needed to make major changes in your life. Please allow me to be your wellness mentor and lifestyle coach. Listen to me explain my philosophy about health on a recent local radio show I was on in New Britain.
Of course the main reason people usually seek out chiropractic care is for pain. As someone who gets migraines and has been in a car accident, I believe I can uniquely sympathize with my patients who are in pain. As a chiropractor with over 35 years of experience I specialize in chiropractic treatment for neck pain, back pain, migraines & headaches, stress, insomnia and auto injuries. In addition, my experience in martial arts has given me experience with treating sports injuries and the opportunity to treat many patients with them. Also, because of my interest in optimal health, I’ve helped many patients with their nutritional and weight loss goals.
The goal for all of my patients is to provide them pain relief without medication and to correct the problem so it doesn’t return. Teaching my patients how to strengthen the injured area is paramount to the healing process. The ultimate goal is complete wellness. My training and experience provides me with the tools needed to teach my patients how to exercise injured areas without causing additional harm. Following your first treatment, we will email you a detailed explanation of your problem as well as a home stretching exercises.

There are a variety of musculoskeletal problems that are successfully treated with chiropractic care. Conditions seen in Bristol CT are the same as other cities; they are either acute, or chronic. An acute problem is one that is sudden and often severe in onset. A chronic condition is one that has usually been present for over 3 months. Whether you are in pain due to a recent problem, or have been in pain for months or years, you should be examined by a chiropractor with decades of experience. Dr Spitz has been treating patients in Bristol since 1983.

Modern medicine has changed a lot since I first became a chiropractor. Physicians now regularly refer patients to my office who are in need of chiropractic care. I will work with your physician to provide a team approach to your care so that if you need pain medication during our treatment they can provide that for you.
When you first come to our office, you’ll need to complete the typical paperwork you find in most doctors offices. What I hope you find that’s different is that we treat our patients like friends and family. My staff is pleasant, accommodating and helpful.
