I went to Dr. Mitchell for the first time in 2009 because for about 3 months I had been dealing with a crippling case of frozen shoulder (also known as adhesive capsulitis) in both shoulders, and had been to multiple doctors and physical therapists for treatment, and my condition was worsening. My arms were locked down to my sides due to excessive scar tissue, which formed in the shoulder joints, and I was scheduled for surgery with an orthopedic surgeon to have the scar tissue removed to release the joints. Dr. Mitchell analyzed my condition and with great care and thought, proceeded to treat me. After the very first visit, he was able to relieve the majority of the pain. Something no other doctors were able to do. While continuing to see Dr. Mitchell, I also kept my scheduled surgical appointment and had the scar tissue surgically removed from my right shoulder. The recovery from the surgery was long and painful, and I was prescribed Dilaudid, by the surgeon. Dr. Mitchell continued to treat me. While recovering from the surgery, another surgery was planned for the left shoulder...but before I went in for that second surgery, Dr. Mitchell had managed to release the joint. I canceled the second surgery and continued to see Dr. Mitchell, who brought me back to full health in a very intelligent, careful, natural, and non-invasive way. He not only convinced me of his abilities, but everyone around me observing the process, including a family member who is a doctor of internal medicine, has been convinced, and swears by him. Need I say more? Dr. Gerald Mitchell is the best chiropractor in NYC.
