Mitchell cuts ribbon at new downtown Niles facility

By By BEN RAYMOND LODE / Niles Daily Star
NILES -- Toby Mitchell, owner of Clear Choice Chiropractic and Holistic Wellness Center, recently opened his new business location in Niles.
On Monday, he showed the fruits of his labors to local business people, as well as city and state officials.
Following a ribbon-cutting ceremony outside his new building, which is located at 109 S. Third St., in downtown Niles, Mitchell, a chiropractor, took his guests on a guided tour of the new facility that has replaced his former business location at River Front Square.
Included in the tour was a peak into five different massage suites, all of which had their own unique features, and a look at state-of-the-art equipment Mitchell and his staff use in their treatment of patients.
Among the equipment was a machine called Vivatek, of which there are only three in Michigan and five in the Midwest, Mitchell said.
He said the machine is used to reduce disc pain and suffering as well as future disk deterioration.
While touring the facility, Mitchell also explained some of the treatments available at his new facility.
He may have surprised some when he said chiropractic healing can be used to treat more than just sore backs.
He explained how chiropractors can, among other things, treat children with ear pains by adjusting areas in the neck which relieves the pressure that causes pain.
Mitchell also showed his guests the new filing cabinet system that will be used to keep track of patients.
The filing system can carry 45,000 files and is the same system used by the University of Michigan.
Mitchell also explained why there are several wide screens TV's located in different rooms within the clinic.
The screens are part of the clinic's non-verbal education network and display information about causes and treatments for injuries and pains.
For Mitchell, who grew up in Niles and went to school here, the clinic is also a way of giving back to the community he grew up in.
He said when people get together and do things for the community makes it better for everyone. Mithcell also said he is pleased with the work being done in downtown Niles and the effort that is underway to bring people back to the downtown area.
Asked whether he ever considered building from scratch, Mitchell said it would be hard to find a place that would be suitable for a clinic his size in the downtown area.
And, he also doubted that the offset would have been that great.
Although the business may look complete, Mitchell said a few things remain to be done before it is 100 percent.
The second floor, which will be the location of a day spa, is also not finished.
The 7,000 square feet space the new business is located at makes it the largest of its kind in Michigan, Mitchell said.
Mitchell has closed down his business in Berrien Springs as more people are travelling to his new clinic.
Mitchell is also holding an open house at his business this Saturday, Oct 18, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
