Mitchell A. Cohn, D.O.


Physician


 

Dr. Cohn joined Born Clinic in April 2012. He received his undergraduate degree from the University of Michigan and his Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine degree from the University of Osteopathic Medicine and Health Sciences in in 1986.  Dr. Cohn went on to do a traditional osteopathic internship at the Community Health Center of Branch County, Coldwater, Michigan – a Michigan State University-affiliated program. He subsequently received post-graduate training in Family Medicine and Biomechanics/Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine through programs at Michigan State University.For much of his career, Dr. Cohn was in a solo private practice in general medicine with special interests in the field of Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine and the treatment of pain and neurological and musculoskeletal injury. He was also the founder and chief medical legal consultant for two legal medicine consulting firms, and is an award-winning author whose work has been published in professional journals.

In addition to traditional osteopathic medical training, Dr. Cohn has extensive knowledge and expertise in hands-on manipulative treatment and evaluation. His treatments are not limited to the typical ‘cracking’ techniques employed by many osteopathic doctors and chiropractors. His professional toolkit also includes a wide variety of soft treatment techniques including myofascial release, strain-counterstrain, and cranial/craniosacral techniques. He also places a great deal of emphasis on finding and treating the very subtle and often gradual changes in a person’s body which can lead to great pain and dysfunction, and emphasizes finding the root problem from which a person’s pain stems, rather than just treating the symptoms.

Dr. Cohn has experienced a great deal of success in treating patients with acute and chronic pain such as headaches, neck pain, upper and lower back pain, TMJ problems, musculoskeletal chest pain, chest-wall pain, post-surgical chest pain, failed-back syndrome (post-laminectomy or discectomy pain), and even structurally-induced neuropathic and radicular pain of the limbs.
