Opened on June 27th of 2007, Sell Chiropractic offers corrective spinal care often needed due to stress or trauma, as well as core strengthening, rehabilitation and exercise. Dr. Sell also performs regular adjustments for every joint in the body such as ankles, knees, wrists and shoulders.
The office even has a full line of supplements including high quality vitamins, antioxidants and pillows designed to improve back and neck conditions. Many patients with chronic low back or neck pain or arthritis partake in laser therapy, an FDA-approved treatment available at Sell Chiropractic. The laser emits light into the necessary regions of the body, not just numbing the pain but actually changing cells and tissues and helping the body to revitalize itself.
A patient in need of corrective care can expect a two-day orientation before any adjustments are done. First, a physical exam is performed, including standing x-rays if necessary, to determine if and where each individual’s misalignments are located. The sophisticated x-ray technology can pinpoint down to the millimeter the adjustment requirements for a person’s spine, preventing any guesswork.
Day two is used for Dr. Sell to sit with each person and discuss in detail his findings.
“Every single item is gone over and all questions are answered during this time.
I explain to my patients the period of care that will be needed to make sure all problems are properly fixed, rather than just temporarily patched,” Dr. Sell says.
Patients are placed on a corrective program based on their specific needs and are re-evaluated frequently to determine the amount of healing which has taken place. Gentle corrective spinal adjustments are primarily done by hand, but an instrument can be used to substitute human contact if preferred.
“My office is meant to be a personal, comfortable experience for every single patient,” Dr. Sell said.
Once their initial plan of care is complete, patients can opt to join the Wellness Program. This program avails a patient of a weekly wellness appointment with Dr. Sell over the course of a year.
“I recommend that people of all ages get adjusted for life.
By maintaining our body we can live our life with a much higher degree of quality. Many people wait until they have crippling pain, which can be prevented by receiving regular adjustments,” Dr. Sell said.
Patients, whether they need corrective work or simply desire an adjustment, typically set a regular schedule, and new patients can often find themselves in same-day appointments.
Sell Chiropractic is open Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 8:00am – noon and 3:00 – 6:30pm; Tuesdays from 3:00 – 6:30pm and Saturdays from 8:00 – 9:00am. Sell Chiropractic will also present a different free workshop every Tuesday from 6:30 – 7:00pm in 2014 targeting topics such as Nutrition, Chronic Fatigue, Allergies and Carpal Tunnel.
“We’re revolutionizing the way we look at our health,” Dr. Sell said. “People would be amazed at the effect a regular adjustment can have on their bodies and their minds.”
An Archbishop Ryan H.S. and Ursinus College graduate, Dr. Sell went on to graduate summa cum laude from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa, the school which founded Chiropractic. While at Palmer, Dr. Sell received a Presidential Scholar Award and participated in a mission trip to the Amazon with four faculty doctors and 30 students who provided free care to over 3,000 patients.
He is currently certified by the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners.
Sell Chiropractic is located at 229 Bustleton Pike between County Line and Street Roads in a professional center and can be reached at 215-942-2626.
