Richard Belli, D.C.

Dr. Belli at Spectrum Applied Kinesiology and Chiropractic has extensive training in treating functional disorders. They have a unique combination of training in functional neurology, functional medicine and professional-applied kinesiology that makes for a powerful toolkit for analyzing and treating functional disorders. Using this multi-pronged approach, Spectrum doctors not only strive to fix your problem as quickly as possible—but work to figure out the underlying cause or trigger and help you remove it so the problem does not return.

Dr. Belli at Spectrum takes the “patient-centered” (instead of the “disease-centered”) approach to discovering and treating your specific problem. In other words, the individual—not the disease—is the target of treatment. The Doctor at Spectrum view disease—not as an enemy with which to grapple—but as a manifestation of the breakdown of mechanisms that maintain control, resilience and balance. Dysfunction and disease are rarely organ-specific; they are an altered systemic physiological malfunction that requires an integrated model of therapeutic intervention.

Dr. Belli takes the whole-person approach. Your treatment is patient-centered and comprehensive. Your treatment plan is individualized and tailored for you in order to achieve the fastest and longest lasting results possible. They are committed to using the safest and least expensive treatment and testing methods possible to achieve maximum benefit.

Dr. Belli also uses a clinical protocol that includes neurological, biochemical and structural principles. These principals are firmly founded in extensive research and solidly grounded in extensive practical clinical experience

They will become your coach and partner in health by taking into consideration your diet, lifestyle, exercise habits, stress factors, genetic makeup and nutritional supplementation. This is a whole-person approach. And the doctor will strive to help you remove the triggers to your health issues, so they do not return.

With this in mind, the doctor and staff of Spectrum Applied Kinesiology and Chiropractic would be honored if you, your family and friends chose them for guidance through a long and prosperous life of robust health and vitality.

Services Treatment consists six parts that addresses the entire human system. The treatment system developed by Dr. Belli and taught around the world is referred to as the “Neurological Application of Applied Kinesiology” or NAAK. The NAAK system addresses the entire human system using concepts from Functional Neurology, Functional Medicine, Chiropractic, and Acupuncture.

First, Dr. Belli will go through a process to remove your subconscious memory of all recent and past injuries, this is done with a technique referred to as “Injury Recall”. Injury Recall Technique was developed by an Osteopath that resets the response of the Cerebellum of the brain to injury.

Next, Dr. Belli will proceed through a series of test related to immune system function, to determine if you have too much or not enough immune activity, or systemic inflammation. Once we have addressed the immune system Dr. Belli will look at metabolic function, which includes production of ATP for energy, liver detoxification, thyroid function, and others.

Once Dr. Belli has addressed issues with immune and metabolic function, he will address muscle patterns related to brain and central nervous system dysfunction. Corrections will be made, and exercises will be given to improve brain and nervous system function. At this point corrections include treating acupuncture point, and various reflexes.

Once the brain and central nervous system are functioning better Dr. Belli will address your motion segments (joints and vertebra), and whether they are sending the right messages to the brain. The process of normalizing joint function includes treating reflexes and manipulation where necessary.

Next, Dr. Belli will address pain inhibition pathways coming from the brain and joints, as well as how the brain itself perceives or feels pain. Pain is treated by addressing acupuncture points and reflexes.

And finally, Dr. Belli will address the state of your body chemistry by looking at various metabolic pathways, genetic variants, and methylation. Once this process has been done, lifestyle changes and diet will be discussed, and the appropriate nutritional supplements will be recommended.

They're always able to answer simple questions over the phone. They only make me schedule appointments if necessary. I love that they are always more than happy to answer my questions, and actually welcome questions. I've felt awkward at some other places I've visited when I've tried to ask a lot of questions, but not here. I'm always amazed at how considerate and concerned they are for my well-being. Their advice is always wonderful and completely unbiased. As soon as I walked through the door, I was immediately greeted by the friendly staff. They went out of their way to make me feel special and appreciated.
It was very easy to get an appointment. They have a very flexible schedule and get me in quickly every time. I was very comfortable during my adjustments. I felt no pain or discomfort at all. I was very impressed with how fast I started to feel better. He is the best kept secret in Sacramento. More people need to know just how good he is. I had sever depression and with in 48 hours after my first visit I really noticed a huge change. With in a week I felt like my happy self again.
