“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.”

Angelo Taylor
2008 Olympic Double Gold Medalist
400M Hurdles, 4x400M Relay

“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.”

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.”

Chelsea Hammond
2008 Olympic Bronze Medalist
Long Jump

“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.”
