P.S.  We now offer the Class 3B Thor Low Level Laser for photobiomodulation therapy (PBM).  This is the same equipment that is used in dozens of hospitals around the United States and throughout the world.  Be sure to ask me if YOU would benefit from PBM!  

 


All Together Now

I have always believed that no doctor can function alone on an "island".  In my mind, it takes a "village" to properly care for patients.  Early on in my trauma care practice, I sought out the best specialists in the fields of neurosurgery, pain management, radiology and others so that I had a team of doctors in place and ready to meet the needs of my patients.  I firmly believe that proper chiropractic spine care is essential in caring for a trauma patient, but I know that other specialists are often needed too.  Please know that if you are ever in a work accident, car accident, slip and fall, or other trauma that we are ready, willing and able to serve you, and to direct you to other professionals when that is needed.  We are here for you from the beginning to the end.  Questions?  Let us know!  We are here to serve YOU!  Until next time.....

New Day

Posted: November 29, 2018
By: Dr Bell

I recently attended a conference at Harvard Medical School that was sponsored by the Academy of Integrative Pain Management on the subject of nutritional management of pain.  It was a fascinating conference that emphasized new, drug-free approaches to pain management.  The multi-disciplinary attendees created a rich atmosphere of learning that all practioners could benefit from.  I'm proud to be part of a profession that has always offered drugless help for pain patients, and I'm also proud to be part of an organization that is open to many different aspects of pain management.  Until next time...

Pain

Posted: October 1, 2018
By: Dr. Bell

Have you ever suffered from severe neck or back pain?  If not, consider yourself lucky!  Most Americans have suffered from neck pain, back pain, headaches and a myriad of other painful conditions.  In fact, these issues account for among the most common reasons that Americans seek the help of a health care provider.  For more than twenty seven years, I've been helping people to get out of pain and regain lost health.  Recently, I have become trauma-certified and now have an enhanced direction in practice to help folks who have been involved in work and automobile accidents.  I have completed advanced coursework in MRI interpretation, electrodiagnosis performance and interpretation, accident reconstruction, case triage, and so much more as a portion of this advanced training.  When seeking the services of any doctor, its important to verify that the doctor is an expert in the treatment that you require.  If you have been in a work or automobile accident please call us today.  If I can't help you, I will find someone who can.  I have assembled a "team" of medical specialists who I refer patients to when it is required.  We are ready, willing AND qualified to serve you!  Until next time....

Injured And Stressed

Posted: September 27, 2018
By: Dr. Darren

Have you been injured in a motor vehicle accident?  Or perhaps a slip and fall or work related accident?  If you have, then you know what a stressful time it can be.  There can be so many questions and many more decisions to make.  Its important to not go at it alone.  Many people choose to retain a personal injury attorney which can be a wise decision in most cases.  That decision isn't my concern, however.  My area of focus is serving your spinal health care needs.  I have spent the last several years focused on caring for patients just like you!  I am trauma certified by Cleveland University School of Chiropractic in Kansas City, Missouri. I have take post-graduate studies in MRI from credentialed programs through The University of Buffalo Jacobs School of Medicine.  I have also taken post-graduate studies in electrodiagnostics from The CUNY College at Staten Island, as well as Palmer School of Chiropractic.  What does all of this mean to YOU?  It means that I have the knowledge and experience to care for injured patients!  In other words, if you have been in an accident, we are ready, willing AND qualified to help you!  Call us today.  Until next time....

A Simple Idea

Posted: September 13, 2018
By: Dr Darren

Chiropractic was founded on a simple idea.  The Power that made the body heals the body.  Chiropractors acknowledge the amazing inborn healing presence in the human body.  We understand that doctors, drugs, surgery, or chiropractic adjustments cannot heal the body.  Only the Power inside the body can heal it.  Chiropractic adjustments help the body to work better, and often help patients to live healthier and more comfortable lives.  Chiropractic does not replace medical care but it should be a part of everyone's health care team for the maintenance of the spine and nervous system.  Call us today and have YOUR spine checked!  We are here to serve YOU!......Until next time....

PS Our office will be closed next week from Thursday through Saturday (September 20th-22nd).  We will resume regular office hours on Monday, September 24th beginning at 6am.   I will be attending a post-graduate conference on electrodiagnosis in Fort Lauderdale, FL, sponsored by the City University of New York-Staten Island and Cloud EMG.  


Guesswork

Posted: September 6, 2018
By: Dr Darren

To see is to know and not to see is to guess?  Have you ever heard that one?  It's appropriate in the world of health care.  In many instances, imaging (x-ray, MRI, etc) can help to take the guesswork out of your health care, particularly as it involves the spine.  Does that mean that everyone needs an x-ray?  Or any other imaging?  Of course not.  That is up to the discretion and judgement of the doctor, and the patient's individual needs.  The point is, imaging can play a vital role in patient spinal health care.  We have digital x-ray onsite in our Hamburg, NY office for your convenience!  Until next time....

Work Injuries Explained

By: Dr Darren

Have you been injured at work?  Back pain?  Neck pain?  Maybe we can help!  For more than 25 years now, I have been caring for folks who have been injured at work and I can tell you that its truly harder to get the care that you need and deserve than it ever has been before.  That's the bad news.  New York state Workers Compensation can be a difficult system to navigate.  The good news is that we accept NYS Workers Compensation insurance AND a referral is generally not necessary.  Can chiropractic help you?  Let's explore that together.  Give us a call today!  We are here for you.  Until next time....

Did you know that the term doctor actually means "teacher"?  Yep, it's true.  I take that idea literally and to heart.  I consider it my responsibility to teach folks about health and their specific chiropractic health needs as I see them.  After that, it is the patient's decision as to how they will utilize the role of chiropractic in their personal health care choices.  I am not interested in convincing anyone of anything. My goal and promise is that I will tell you the truth to the best of my abilities, and present the facts exactly as I see them.  From there.....the choice is YOURS!  Until next time......
