Chiropractic Isn’t Just for Back Pain

If you were to visit Bell Family Chiropractic’s waiting room, you would learn that visiting patients come for a wide range of medical reasons, with back pain representing only a small percentage of those reasons. Patients visit Bell Family Chiropractic for help with sleep abnormalities, childhood ADHD, digestive issues, headaches, and a range of other health needs. In this interview with Dr. Ryan Bell, DC, you will learn just how Bell Family Chiropractic can help you and your family members discover a solution to many of today’s health issues.

EK: Tell our readers why stress is the root cause of many of our diseases and how chiropractic can help your patients that are experiencing these various health issues.

Ryan: Stress isn’t necessarily the root cause of our diseases, but rather our inability to adapt to it. Unfortunately, your body can’t be in a stressed state and a healing state at the same time. In our world today, our bodies experience a lot of stress. It is difficult for our body to be able to adapt to these stressors properly without the correct alignment, nutrition, and wellness care. This stress comes in many different shapes and sizes. It can be emotional stress, chemical stress (food we eat), or physical stress. As we begin to adjust our patients, they move from a stressed state to a healing state. They sleep better, digest food better, and some even have lower blood pressure. If you go to our website and click “Why Chiropractic” in the menu, you can get a much deeper explanation.

EK: Describe “adjustment” as it relates to your medical practice and just how your patients benefit from this procedure.

Ryan: The adjustment is what makes chiropractic so special. We are able to influence your central nervous system, which runs and regulates everything in your body. It tells your heart to beat and your lungs to breathe along with countless other things in your body. A large part of the nervous system is protected by your spine, and the nerves that run everything in your body shoot out from it. So a specific adjustment to your spine can be very powerful and help your entire body to start functioning properly.

EK: Not only is Bell Family Chiropractic family friendly, but nearly 50% of your patients are children. Is that unique?

Ryan: Not really! Once you understand that stress is the root cause of the majority of our diseases, then it makes sense. At a very early age, children experience physical and emotional stress in the birthing process and when learning to walk and falling. Additionally, school and worrying about upcoming tests and homework are mental stressors. The toxins and chemicals in the food they eat every day are chemical stressors. Children often respond to chiropractic care quicker than adults. You will also find your kids love coming to see us and often fight to be the first ones adjusted.

EK: Tell our readers about “Pulstar,” the state-of-the-art medical device used to adjust patients.

Ryan: The Pulstar is an awesome tool we use in our practice. It is super safe and specific. I have adjusted newborns with it, and they have remained asleep the entire time. It is connected to a computer and allows me to have complete control of how much force is used as it sends multiple impulses through the instrument. At all times, it is reading how the joint in your back is moving and lets me know when it is moving properly. We never have to worry about putting too much force into a joint, because the computer is guiding us. You can watch it in action at our website under the “Technique” link.


EK: What is the Zone Technique, and why is it unique?

Ryan: The Zone Technique is a form of healing designed to balance your brain and align your spine so your body can restore itself to maximum health. The human brain has six centers that form in the embryonic stage of development that are responsible for maintaining your health through your central nervous system. Stress causes these six centers to malfunction, and we can kind of reboot them to working properly. I am one of only two doctors in Tennessee who are trained and certified in the Zone Technique.

EK: Describe a typical new patient experience. What can a patient expect?


Ryan: We try to keep the new patient experience as simple as possible. When you come in, we have you fill out a page of paperwork and then we talk. We ask questions and hear your story and why you think chiropractic care might be for you. We make sure we can help you and then we adjust you. It takes 15-30 minutes for the entire visit. After that you just show up during our open adjusting hours and get adjusted. You don’t have to make another appointment.

EK: Tell our readers about your fee structure.


Ryan: Our fee structure is pretty simple. We have two tiers, individual and family. You can pay per visit or receive unlimited monthly chiropractic care. The monthly membership is what the majority of our patients choose, because they understand the importance of chiropractic care. The membership is $69 a month for individuals and $99 a month for families, with no setup fee or contracts!
