    Ronald D. Mitchell D.C., C.C.S.P.

    Dr. Mitchell was born into a military family stationed in Anchorage, Alaska. His family finally settled into a growing community in Neptune, New Jersey. It was in New Jersey that Dr. Mitchell, at 16 years of age, gained his first personal exposure to the tremendous recuperative and curative powers of chiropractic care. After sustaining a troubling back injury while playing contact sports during high school, his best friend Steve referred him to a local chiropractor for care. Following a short course of treatment, he was relieved of all signs and symptoms relating to his injury, and at that point in life, decided that a career as a chiropractor was his calling.

    Dr. Mitchell graduated from Life Chiropractic College-West, in San Lorenzo, California. Following graduation, he continued Post Graduate studies in the field of Sports Medicine, and became a Certified Chiropractic Sports Practitioner (CCSP). In the continuance of professional development, Dr. Mitchell is now preparing to take the nationally recognized Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist examination (CSCS). 

    Dr. Mitchell has also had the distinct privilege of serving as the team chiropractor for the San Francisco Giants Baseball Club. Working as part of a medical team that treated premiere athletes, Dr. Mitchell gained broad exposure and unique experiences offered by many of the most esteemed professionals in the fields of Athletic Training and Sports Medicine.

    In addition to providing chiropractic care to world-class athletes, Dr. Mitchell is also active in both the local and international communities. He extends his local support, by providing high school athletic programs with pre-participation physical examinations for their students. Internationally, Dr. Mitchell established two chiropractic clinics in Manila, Philippines. That has now expanded to four clincs. He continues to be actively involved in the treatment of patients, as well as the professional development of chiropractic throughout the Philippines.
