Honolulu Chiropractor | Dr. Gary Bell

In the times past it seems the Chiropractor was the doctor of last resort. Today there are millions of satisfied patients, that have come to realize that the Chiropractic Physician is the definitive specialist for disorders relating to the spine. Being a skeptical and scientific person myself, Chiropractic has both proven itself to me and all who have trusted in our clinical skills over the past 20 years that I’ve been in practice. Chiropractic is extremely cost effective and proven safer than drugs and surgery.

There is no such thing as normal pain!

As I contemplated a career in medicine, I had consulted with several practitioners. I was astounded at the general opinion that medical doctors I had met were not satisfied with their care or how “managed care” was turning most of their cases into “mangled care”.

I had a chance meeting with a Chiropractor in New York while on Vacation in 1985. Dr. Leo Belolianis was a Chiropractor in Long Beach, Long Island NY. I had asked Dr. Leo that I would like to be a “fly on the wall” in his office for a few days, he agreed. What I saw amazed me! His patients were the top piers in his community. His impressive list of patients included, the towns Mayor, fortune 500 CEO’s and professional athletes. And this was just on the first day of being in his office. Most of the patients accounts were the same, they came in for headaches, neck or back pain and walked out feeling normal again. All this was accomplished without drugs, surgery and costly rehabilitation.

My amazement turned to life altering change in career for me and a new outlook on our healthcare system. Thank you, Dr. Leo!

It’s a Chiropractor’s life for me

After graduating from Hawaii Loa College in 1984 with a Bachelors in Biology. My next challenge was finding a Chiropractic College close to Hawaii. I was in luck. Cleveland Chiropractic College was located just 2500 miles away in Downtown Los Angeles. Four years later National Board Examinations finished and with an enormous student loan debt, it was back to Honolulu in 1990. In 1995, I had completed a Diplomat Program in Chiropractic Neurology through the Los Angeles College of Chiropractic. I am still Board Eligible.

Four years of training to be a Chiropractic Physician is only the beginning

We take each patient on an individual basis. There are no cutting corners. Healthcare cannot be something that an insurance company dictates. The patient has to understand that they are ultimately responsible for their health and should respect basic healthcare rules. The body is susceptible to excess, whether it be food, repetitive movements, alcohol, mental stress or physical stress. All of this can lead to “dis-ease”.

There are times where you injure yourself and that’s where the Chiropractic Physician can surpass most other practitioners in both efficiency and patient satisfaction. There are just too many patients that have told me that when they saw their medical providers they were never touched in the area that hurts and were just given a prescription for the pain or swelling. When the pain persisted and the medication made them feel funny and their stomach queasy that they wanted a better experience.

On a Personal Note

I had been married for 18 years and have two lovely children. I am now Divorced and am settling into a new life. I can now see myself in both of my children. They are my pride and joy.

I have enjoyed just about every sport with a ball, including volleyball, baseball, tennis, golf, etc.

My passion in surfing has been present for past 30+ years. I had been addicted to surfing 20-30 foot waves on my jet ski in years past but had decided a few years back that it was time for the younger lads to charge’em. I currently enjoy surfing (2′-10′ Hawaiian), SUP, OC-1 (Ocean Canoe) hiking, fishing and doing just about anything with my children.

As you know, it’s hard being me. I preach from the podium of “Balance”. If you’ve lost your balance in life, things can go horribly wrong. Inherently, we all know what’s good to eat but it’s our choices that may come back to haunt us in the future, in the form of diabetes, obesity and ill health. Not achieving balance with exercise, work, sleep and stress can also lead to ill health. Unfortunately, bad things also happen. Injuries do occur and genetic pre-dispositions will come into play. All we can do is try and achieve balance. I have found that Chiropractic philosophies are all about balance, which leads to prevention and ultimately optimal health.

Choose your friends wisely. Choose your health practitioners with even greater scrutiny. Take nothing for granted. A good doctor listens to his patients and values their insight into what’s going on with their health. Don’t expect miracles although they do occur. Don’t think your pain will just go away. Headaches, dizziness, arm and leg pain are all signs of deeper problems.

I consider myself an excellent listener and hope I get the opportunity to meet you in person and discuss your specific health challenge. Give our office a call or email me with the link below.
