Mitchell’s Physiotherapy focus revolves on managing and treating the ever prevalent “desk jockeys”. This population constantly challenges their bodies behind a desk or computer for over 40 hours a week (which is way more than any athlete trains at the gym); in addition to staying active at the gym or playing their favourite recreational sports. Because of this, Mitchell focuses on priming their bodies to sustain long periods in sitting positions, and optimizes their postural mechanics to be able to transition from desk work to competitive play – without the risk of sprains or strains.
Mitchell’s philosophy to Physiotherapy spans further than the typical injury mentality. Given his passion for integrative practice, Mitchell’s goal is to understand how the site of pain is impacted by the entire body – rather than pinpointing a specific area of weakness. Within this perspective, he strives to optimize movement to help clients attain relief on a whole body level and fulfill their performance goals. Mitchell also uses activity-specific strengthening exercises, acupuncture and dry needling, and manual therapy techniques to ensure clients are able to reach their optimal performance ambitions. He further couples these techniques with training in Advanced Manual Therapy techniques, Functional Stability courses, soft tissue release, and Concussion training.
Mitchell is the founder and creator of The Movement Centre (www.TheMovementCentre.ca) – a website created to empower patients and users to better manage and treat their injuries to achieve their functional goals. This media platform allows patients to gain access to movement assessment videos, targeted exercises, as well as specialized video series to aid in empowering them to take their health and injury prevention in their own hands.
Outside of The Movement Centre, Mitchell also an interest in on-field sports coverage. Specifically, he has had the unique opportunity to take part in the 2015 Pan Am Games (as a member of the medical team) where he provided on-field injury management services to golf, softball, table tennis, and baseball athletes
