Dr. Kelly D. Arnold
“Like countless of other people, I found relief in Chiropractic after experiencing excruciating, low back pain that radiated into my left foot. I was working Road Construction at that time. I had gone to a few Chiropractors in the past who talked to me about “correcting the problem”, but quite frankly, I was just there for pain relief. However, because the pain started affecting other areas of my life, I ultimately chose corrective care. Shortly thereafter, I had my whole family under Care! – Dr. Arnold
A midwesterner, Dr. Arnold (commonly referred to by “Dr. Kelly” by his patients) received his Doctorate degree from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport Iowa. After graduating, he knew that he wanted to raise his family, set up his practice, and retire in the same community. So, after visiting and researching numerous places, he fell in love with Bellingham and immediately relocated his family to establish Barkley Chiropractic in 2005. After being in the same location for a little over 10 years, the Practice relocated to their current location at 1151 Ellis st. #104 and changed their name to New Life Chiropractic & Wellness to reflect their new direction – and the rest is history.
Dr. Arnold has been able to help patients decrease their pain & stress, reduce their dependence on medications, increase range of motion and improve their overall quality of life, so they can experience NEW LIFE. As a result, he has enjoys a deeper level of connection with his patients that provide him with a higher level of professional & personal fulfillment and it shows! Dr. Arnold loves going to work each day and enjoys getting to know his patients.
