Chiropractor Jani Mikkonen

 

Professional ethos

I’m committed to a patient-centered care, clinical excellence and a lifelong learning. I’m clinically specialised on chronic (long term) and multifactorial neuromusculoskeletal patient cases.

Clinical work

Chiropractic neurology specialist care is an effective treatment for many types of neuromusculoskeletal conditions (conditions which affect the locomotor and nervous system). Most common complaints seen in the clinic are

  • Chronic headache or musculoskeletal pain (back, neck, extremity)
  • Dizziness and vertigo, balance problems
  • Functional breathing problems
  • Neurologic rehabilitation and musculoskeletal symptom treatment on different chronic diseases (Most commonly neurological or rheumatic conditions)

The main goals of treatment are decrease of symptoms, increased function of neuromusculoskeletal system and promotion of general health. The first office visit consists of thorough history, examination, plan of management and most commonly treatment (if there no other studies needed before tretment). Treatment can include manual therapy, acupuncture, neurologic rehabilitation, therapeutic exercise and lifestyle advice. The initial consultation takes forty minutes and subsequent treatment and rehabilitation appointments take twenty or forty minutes depending on individual needs.The clinic in the Helsinki city centre attracts patients from all corners of Finland.

Expertise and multidisciplinary collaboration

I’m a member and/or delegate of many national and international multidisciplinary expert panels, committees and associations. My academic background consist of Doctor of Chiropractic degrees (University of Glamorgan, 2003-2007) and clinical neurology specialist studies (Carrick Institute of Graduate Studies, 2013-2017), where I was granted Diplomate of American Chiropractic Neurology Board status.

Currently, I’m a PhD student of Clinical Medicine program at University of Eastern Finland, where I’m working at multidisciplinary research group. My main research interest is a pain modulation mechanisms of the central nervous system. So far, I have published over fifty articles in different health related publications. I’m have been interviewed on leading Finnish national newspapers on different aspects relating to neuromusculoskeletal diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation. I have an active collaborating network with medical doctors, dentists, physiotherapists and psychologists.

Warmly welcome to the clinic,
