Meet The Doctors

Dr. Daniel Bell, D.C. is a Chiropractor, Clinic Director at Clifton Park

Dr. Daniel Bell became part of The Joint Chiropractic team in 2021 as an associate in the Cifton Park clinic location. He received his bachelor’s degree in biology in 1980 from Albany State University and his doctorate from New York Chiropractic College in 1984.

“I love to see chiropractic adjustments improve people’s quality of life by removing pain and increasing their joint motion,” Dr. Bell says. “The other thing I love about this field is educating people to take better care of themselves through exercise, better diet, and wellness through chiropractic care.”

Raised in Ballston Spa, N.Y., Dr. Bell practiced 23 years in Glens Falls, N.Y., before moving to practice Chiropractic in South Carolina in Charleston and Columbia for 13 years." As my kids became adults and moved back to New York and began to give us grandkids, It began to become obvious that we needed to move back to the area".

When he’s not working or spending time with his wife, Janet, or His three adult children, he enjoys jogging, skiing, and playing tennis, as well as reading Christian books and being fully engaged in college football, professional football, and Baseball (Yankees of course)

He and his wife Janet, who is retired from child care, have two cats and a dog, a papillon named Macy.

Dr. Bell became a believer in chiropractic while he was playing sports in his teens. “When I was 16 years old, I injured my neck playing football,” he says. “Following the injury, I started waking up with stiff necks and bad headaches. After my parents brought me to a chiropractor, both symptoms quickly improved. I knew then that’s what I wanted to do for people, relieve their pain!”

He couldn’t be happier being where he is at now, except for maybe the snow and cold weather!

“I love working at the Clifton Park Joint because the people we take care of our wonderful people who really care about their health and consistently get adjusted,” Dr. Bell says. “Many come in their workout clothes so I can see how much they care about their health.”

In Case You Didn’t Know

Dr. Bell says he always loves having one thing in particular in his refrigerator. “The one thing that I really can’t resist in my fridge is leftovers from the night before,” he says. “Everything tastes better the next day.”

If he was to share a meal with any famous foursome in history, he would choose a savior, a president, a baseball player, and an actor.

“I would have to invite Jesus because his life and death were the most pivotal events in history,” he says. “President John F. Kennedy because I really want to know more about this most fascinating president. Babe Ruth because was the best and most interesting baseball player of all time. And Mel Gibson because he’s a wild and crazy guy and people tell me I look a lot like him.”

He says the coolest thing he has ever done is take to the air. “I went up in a hot air balloon,” Dr. Bell says. “The flight was in the Adirondack Mountains of New York and it was at peak leaf season, so it was spectacular.”

Dr. Richard Schmidt, D.C. is a Chiropractor at Clifton Park

Dr. Richard L. Schmidt, Jr., DC, ART, is a Doctor of Chiropractic licensed by The New York State Office of Professions since 2000. He was in private practice in Walton, NY, for over twenty years before joining The Joint Chiropractic team in 2022. He graduated with honors from The State University of New York at Albany and Life University School of Chiropractic. While in Albany, he developed lifelong friendships that have drawn him back to the Clifton Park, NY area. In 2014 he began to study Active Release Techniques. Active Release is designed to quickly reduce pain and improve function by releasing restrictions and entrapments due to injury and overuse. Dr. Schmidt holds full body and advanced certifications in this technique and is a member of The ART Elite Provider Network.

With two decades of experience, Dr. Schmidt has successfully treated a wide range of conditions in patients of all ages. He primarily performs manual adjustments of the spine and extremities combined with Active Release Techniques to reach the best outcomes for his patients. He is also experienced in other adjusting techniques for patients that require a different approach. Dr. Schmidt evaluates the whole body for proper function and focuses on resolving the problems that cause pain and reduce performance.

Dr. Schmidt likes to spend his spare time with his wife and friends as part of the Norse Recreation Society. This group, also known as Norseland, gathers to re-create Viking times. In this group, Dr. Schmidt pursues his interests, including sword fighting, blacksmithing, leather working, woodworking, and weaving. His YouTube video on Viking Weaving Methods has over 5,000 views.

Dr. Lauren Van De Water, D.C. is a Chiropractor at Clifton Park

Dr. Lauren has been exposed to chiropractic care her entire life, but hadn’t considered it as a career until she entered college. At just twelve years old, Dr. Lauren’s sister became fairly ill and her quality of life was greatly diminished. At the recommendation of her local chiropractor and family friend, her sister began to receive regular adjustments. Needless to say, getting adjusted helped to restore her optimal health, and opened Dr. Lauren’s mind to an all new career path.

So, after completing her undergraduate degree, Dr. Lauren continued her education at New York Chiropractic College in Seneca Falls, NY, where she received her Doctorate in Chiropractic as well as a Master’s degree in Applied Clinical Nutrition. Having passions for both chiropractic and nutrition has allowed Dr. Lauren to provide her patient’s with the most well-rounded care she can offer them to help them achieve their desired health and wellness goals.

Dr. Lauren loves working with all patients, but also has a passion for working with pregnant women and pediatric patients. She believes that everybody can benefit from regular chiropractic care, and she receives weekly adjustments herself.

Dr. Lauren grew up in the small rural town of Cambridge, NY, where she still resides today along with her husband and two young sons. She loves swimming, taking her boys for walks and playing outside, and reading a good book when she gets the chance.

She looks forward to working with all of her patients to establish treatment plans that will best help them all to achieve their health and wellness goals.
