Meet The Doctor
Doctor of Chiropractic, Bachelor of Science, Certified Chiropractic Extremity Practitioner, Certified Chiropractic Animal Practitioner
With 49 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.
Outside of the office, Dr. Vetanze enjoys being with his family, which includes a wife, three children and two grandchildren.
