Opiods Feb 26th, 2021

I practice in Hamburg, NY, just outside of Buffalo.  In 2020, our county (Erie) had nearly twice as many opiate deaths as it had in 2019.  That is sad and tragic.  I cannot imagine the pain, suffering and loss that must exist behind those numbers and my heart goes out...

Lawyers Feb 15th, 2021

First of all, I'm not a lawyer and in no way can I offer any legal help.  Now that we've gotten that out of the way, let's get to the question at hand.  Do you need a lawyer if you've been involved in an accident before seeking care at my...

Injured And In Pain Feb 8th, 2021

The opiod epidemic has resulted in an unprecedented amount of suffering in our country.  Unfortunately, the problem is far from over and has perhaps been worsened due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  What are we as a society to do? First of all, some folks may need pain medication to deal...

Surgery Jan 24th, 2021

I often hear patients in the office who say that they would "never have surgery" on their spine.  While I certainly understand the sentiment behind those words, its also important to recognize the necessary and vital role that surgery plays in the arena of spine care.  In some cases surgery...

Maintenance Jan 21st, 2021

Have you ever heard that "once you start going to a chiropractor, you have to keep going"?  It always makes me wonder how anyone can believe that!  It doesn't make any sense when you stop to think about it.  The reality is that SOME people choose to keep going to...

To See Is To Know... Dec 21st, 2020

Our office offers a brand new, state-of-the-art x-ray suite.  Why?  Because I believe in the old truism that "to see is to know, and not to see is to guess".  Does that mean that everyone needs an x-ray?  Of course not.  X-rays are something that should be judiciously and appropriately...

Chiropractic First? Dec 16th, 2020

Should you see a chiropractor first after an injury or accident?  Do you need to see your primary care physician and get a referral?  These are two of the most common questions we hear from patients who have been injured in work related or automobile accidents.   First off, at Bell...

You've been in an accident. Now what? Dec 14th, 2020

It's not easy deciding which provider to see for your care.  This is especially challenging in cases of trauma, which often involves the medical-legal arena.  In cases of serious personal injury (including workers compensation and no fault accidents) it is imperative that you choose a provider who has the knowledge,...

End Game Dec 9th, 2020

You've heard it, right?  Once you start going to a chiropractor you have to keep going...forever!  Well, obviously that's not true.  You certainly do not need to go forever.  In fact, how long you choose to benefit from chiropractic care is entirely up to you.  The role of a chiropractor...

Doctor Nov 15th, 2020

Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Study Oct 9th, 2020

There is so much hype and hyperbole about non-surgical spinal decompression.  Some doctors suggest that it's all about having a special "magic machine".  Does that make sense to you?  It doesn't to me and that idea is decisively not supported by research.  However, some very good data does exist in...

Options Oct 4th, 2020
