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....

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....

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......

I Sure Hope Not!.....

Have you or a family member been involved in a motor vehicle accident?  I sure hope not!  But if you have, please know that we are here for you!  Our office accepts NYS No Fault (auto accident) Insurance and a referral is not necessary.  Even better, I am trauma certified by Cleveland University College of Chiropractic.  What that means to you is that I have taken hundreds of hours of courses on subjects like accident reconstruction, triage in trauma care, MRI interpretation, neurodiagnosis, and more.  So the bottom line is that we are ready, willing, and qualified to care for people who have been involved in accidents.  

Until next time....

The Chiropractic Role

Posted: August 8, 2018
By: Dr. Bell

What is the role of a Doctor of Chiropractic in the health care delivery system?  Have you ever wondered exactly what a chiropractor does?  Chiropractors are primary health care doctors who are experts in the conservative management of mechanical spine pain and dysfunction.  That means chiropractors are perfectly positioned to help with that nagging backache, but also acknowledges the role that chiropractic can play in helping to improve nerve function throughout the body.  Interested?  Why not give us a call?  We are here to serve YOU!

Surgery and Drugs

Posted: July 20, 2018
By: Dr. Bell

Surgery and drugs can be life-saving and a very necessary thing.  Personally, I wouldn't want to live in a world without them!  Would you?  However, many people who come to my office are looking to avoid the use of drugs and surgery, if at all possible.  We will do everything in our power to help them achieve that goal.  For well over 100 years now, chiropractors have been helping people to get out of pain and regain lost health and vitality, all without the use of drugs and surgery.  Can chiropractic help you?  Perhaps we can explore that together!  Call us.  We are here to serve YOU!  Until next time....

Hope

Posted: June 27, 2018
By: Dr Bell

Have you lost the hope that you can get better?  I sure "hope" not!  Many years ago, I heard it said that "where there is life, there is hope" and those words contain a simple truth.  The Power that made the body, heals the body.  It is truly the greatest "doctor" with an infinite healing capacity.  So we are wrong when we try to predict what it can do, especially when we attempt to limit it.  The human body has an almost incomprehensible healing ability.  Will every disease or condition heal?  Of course not.  But I have been a witness to events that seem like miracles in my practice, and I know that other doctors have too.  So keep hope and faith alive because you never know what the body's healing abilities are capable of.  We are here to serve you and help you in any way that we can.  Until next time....

Fear Of the Unknown

Posted: June 8, 2018
By: Dr Bell

Last weekend I did my first road cycling race.  I'm not telling you this to impress you (nothing about my performance at the race should impress anyone!).  Instead, I'm using it to illustrate the fear of the unknown.  I try to push myself to always be trying new things.  Last year I sustained a partial tear in my achilles tendon which effectively ended my running "career", so I was forced to try something new.  Cycling became my new obsession and I love it!   I had done a couple races before (cyclocross and gravel) but never did a true road race.  That ended on Sunday when I competed in our local Hamburg Road Race.  I suffered on the VERY hilly course but it was great fun too!  So what's my point in all of this?  Fear of the unknown!  I had plenty of that on race day and many folks feel a similar thing before they come to the chiropractor for the first time.  Please know if this is you, we will do everything in our power to make your experience a positive one.  Also, please express your concerns openly with me or my staff.  We are here to serve you, not to judge.  We hope to see you in the office soon as you push through fear and try something new.....like me.  Until next time.....

Dr. Darren
