Testimonials

  • "I've made great progress! Everyone at Bel-Ray has been very supportive and helpful. I love having exercises I can do at home that will help keep the pain away. I would recommend Bel-Ray to anyone that has pain."
    Stina H.
  • "I struggled with lower back pain for months. Some days it was manageable, others I could barely walk but it was a pain and discomfort that I dealt with everyday. I hit a point of being done, frustrated with the pain and how it was affecting my life with my family. A friend referred me to Bel Ray Wellness. I've been a patient here for 6 weeks and the difference is unbelievable. I'm pan free on a daily basis and feel great. The treatment plan is simple and manageable. I'm most impressed with the quality of care given from the Dr's and staff, they truly invest in each patient, providing valuable in formation and attention to get you to a pain free lifestyle."
    Kimberly R.
  • "Friends recommended Bel-Ray to me when I was truly suffering sciatica nerve pain. After initial consultation the decision was made to commence treatment. Subsequent visits have eliminated the pain. Suggested exercises have been continued which I feel are very beneficial. Bel-Ray's staff is outstanding, friendly, helpful, accommodating, and knowledgeable. I would recommend Bel-Ray Wellness Center with no hesitation."

  • "I came in with a lot of pain in the left hip due to a pinched nerve. After 10 visits the pain has stopped. I was having trouble sitting and sleeping, taking pain medication every day but now ice packs is all I need. The staff was very helpful and friendly."
    Barbara T
  • "I fell and know I have made great progress with the treatments, stretches, and exercises that Dr. McCandless has given. I came in for an "angry" nerve in my left leg and with treatment - it's not as angry and not on my mind 24/7 as before. Lower back pain has improved as well. I'm back to biking and walking on a daily basis and it's absolutely great. The key for anyone is to stick with it and do those home exercises and stretches, don't skimp out on them. I would definitely recommend coming to Bel-Ray Wellness."
    Suzanne W.
  • "I have had a complete turn around, especially in my lower back. I went from barely getting up from a sitting or laying down position, because of the pain. Now I can get up freely without any pain at all. My upper back is also much better as well. Everyone here is very nice, and the chiropractor is very thorough and listens to what symptoms I have. I like the clicker approach instead of more hands on procedures."
    Wayne S.
