Community Health: Dr. Erik Mitchell, Valley Health Orthopaedics

19 September 2019


As part of our community health partnership with Valley Health, our conversation this month was with Dr. Erik Mitchell from Valley Health Orthopaedics in Front Royal.

Dr. Mitchell regularly treats “weekend warriors” who arrive in his office with sprains, strains, shin splints, and sometimes more serious injuries. He also treats injured student athletes who want nothing more than to get well so they can return to their sport. As a former outside linebacker on the University of New Hampshire’s NCAA Division I football team, Dr. Mitchell relates well to all of his patients whether he is caring for a student athlete or an active adult. We talked about all of these types of patients and how their injuries & care are sometimes very similar. We also learned some tips for staying active, avoiding injury & recovering properly.
