Examining a patient’s X-rays helps Dr. Mitchell determine the best course of action for treating pain.

Examining a patient’s X-rays helps Dr. Mitchell determine the best course of action for treating pain.

Getting his patients out of pain as quickly as possible has been Dr. Joseph E. Mitchell’s goal since he began his chiropractic practice over 40 years ago.
    “If a patient comes in with pain, then our primary concern is alleviating the pain as quickly as possible,” says Dr. Mitchell. “We want to provide nonsurgical and nonmedical care so the patient has lasting relief and doesn’t require as much or any pain medication.”
    Dr. Mitchell’s career spans more than four decades, but he is still dedicated to learning more about chiropractic medicine and staying on top of new techniques and the rapidly changing field of healthcare. According to his wife, Beverly, who works in the office with him, “He doesn’t have a hobby like golf. He spends his spare time doing research and learning more about chiropractic care. All he does is study, study, study.”
    He likes to stay updated with all new procedures but also relies on the training he received in school. “I learned how to do a physical exam during my ­training. We could not rely on MRIs because there were none. I spent a lot of time learning ­differential diagnosis, which is what I think distinguishes my practice from others.”
    Although Dr. Mitchell is required to take several hours a year of continuing education to renew his license, he reads a lot and participates in Internet forums with chiropractic ­physicians from around the world. “We compare notes on interesting cases,” he says. “If one of us has an unusual case, we can post the X-rays and lab results with a description of the problem and get opinions from chiropractors all over the world. Of course, no patient names are mentioned.”
    Many patients who began seeking relief from back and neck pain when Dr. Mitchell first began to practice in Pryor will drive to Claremore to get ­treatments even today. He also has patients who began seeing him while they were children. Word-of-mouth referrals have patients driving from Vinita, Big Cabin, Henryetta, Sapulpa, Inola, Adair, Chouteau and Bristow to seek pain relief, according to Beverly.
    Respected by his peers in the community, area medical doctors also work cooperatively with Dr. Mitchell, referring patients in pain, especially ­related to car ­accidents. Dr. Mitchell explains that while he receives referrals from area ­doctors, “I don’t ­interfere with the treatment plan prescribed by the referring ­doctor. For ­example, if a patient is being treated for high blood pressure or diabetes, we don’t treat those things,” he adds. “I know that medical doctors are careful when they refer patients. They know about our reputation for helping patients get ­immediate relief from pain ­without drugs.”
    Staying on top of technology and changing techniques, Dr. Mitchell’s office offers two ­different kinds of spinal ­decompression. Flexion Distraction Traction is most effective for spondylolisthesis, he explains, but other conditions benefit from this method as well. “This method is so gentle that patients often fall asleep during treatment and we have to wake them up when it’s done.”
    The other spinal decompression DTS Triton traction system is FDA approved and has been clinically proven with a very high success rate for the pain and symptoms associated with ­herniated and/or bulging discs, even after failed back surgery. “Our treatment is based on ­painless, non-surgical, natural methods,” he says. Conditions most frequently treated in the clinic include herniated disc, degenerative discs, pinched nerve, neck injury and pain, back injury and pain, sciatic nerve pain, hip and leg pain, arm and shoulder pain, fibromyalgia, headache, (migraine, sinus, ­tension), carpal tunnel syndrome, whiplash and TMJ.
    “When the spine is correctly aligned,” says Dr. Mitchell, “patients don’t require as much, if any, pain medication. They are hospitalized less and stay ­healthier.”
