A Brief Overview of the Office
Dr. Russell Mionie feels passionate about his role as a Chiropractor and is dedicated to inspiring lifelong changes in the health and well-being of individuals and families in the Gainesville and North Georgia community in which he lives and serves. He graduated from Life University School of Chiropractic in 1992, receiving his Doctor of Chiropractic degree.
Dr. Mionie has served with the Gainesville Jaycees, working with community programs such as Gut Check for troubled teen boys, the Empty Stocking Fund, and continued support of the Red Cross through blood donation days at his office.
He is a member of the Georgia Chiropractic Association (GCA), the International Chiropractors Association (ICA), the Christian Chiropractors Association, and an active member of Browns Bridge Community Church. His advanced training within Pediatric Chiropractic has proven invaluable in his treatment of pregnant mothers, babies, and children.
Dr. Mionie feels very blessed to be able to take his passion for helping others via proven clinical methods and effectively restore the health and well-being of individuals without the use of medication or surgery. His philosophy is one that God has made our bodies in a way that most often they can be renewed and restored naturally, via scientifically based concepts and an approach that directly addresses the mechanics of your body and the way it was formed to function.
His commitment is to work with you in improving your quality of health and overall quality of life through exercise, nutrition, and an overall care plan unique to your body and lifestyle.
"From Him, the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work" Ephesians 4:16
Our treatment philosophy
At Lakeshore Chiropractic, a Family Chiropractic office was formed to treat Gainesville and other North Georgia residents; our commitment is to doing everything possible to achieve your optimum level of health. Some of the Chiropractic techniques that Dr. Mionie uses are Thompson, Diversified, Full-Spine, Activator, and the Gonstead technique. We have found that the majority of our patients' conditions improve dramatically with a two-stage treatment program.
Stage One - Pain Relief
By the time you feel the physical manifestations (headaches; back pain; neck pain; numbness; tingling; etc.) of what your body is experiencing, the condition causing these symptoms has typically advanced to a level that demands action not only to relieve these symptoms but to get to the root cause before the condition worsens.
Regardless of the reason you are experiencing these symptoms, the primary goal initially is to reduce and/or eliminate this discomfort. Being able to return to work, recreational and other activities critical to the quality of your everyday life is the result of the clinical treatment of the condition that is causing these symptoms.
Most of our patients begin to see results after their first adjustment. Our gentle yet effective adjustments help the alignment of the body and are gentle enough for babies and kids (they love us), yet able to restore function and movement for everyone from athletes to seniors.
Stage Two - Stabilization
Stabilization is designed to help maintain the proper position and motion of spinal bones. After a decrease in the severity of symptoms, treatment can become more active. Usually, this treatment will include "Therapeutic Exercises," which are designed to strengthen weakened and/or injured muscles.
Visit frequency is reduced, and you will be encouraged to supplement your care with stretching and exercises outside the office. These exercises are designed to continue your rehabilitation and decrease your need for active treatment.
Completion of Care
When maximum improvement is reached, most patients are released with lifestyle instructions that should reduce the likelihood of a reoccurrence of their symptoms.
