Atlas Orthogonal

 Dr. Mishko utilizes a light force method of adjusting the cervical spine; there is no twisting or popping of the neck. Many patients cannot believe an adjustment has actually taken place until they notice that their function has improved and their discomfort has been relieved. 

 Atlas Orthogonal is a gentle, effective and proven Chiropractic technique that does not utilize physical manipulation. 

Dr. John Mishko, DC is a chiropractor in Port Orchard, WA and University Place,WA. He has been practicing for 36 years. Dr. Mishko graduated from Palmer College Of Chiropractic West in 1982 and specializes in Atlas Orthogonal chiropractic.

Laser and Light therapy

Laser and Light Therapy is a painless, sterile, non-invasive, drug-free treatment which is used to treat a variety of pain syndromes, injuries, and fractures. Laser therapy can be used as a drug-less procedure for control of pain when conventional therapies have been ineffective or when the acceleration of healing from injuries is desired. It is known that Laser therapy can heal wounds and fractures up to 60% faster. 

What LLLT is used to treat?


Back Pain

Neck Pain


Carpal Tunnel Syndrome


Plantar Fasciitis / Heel Spurs

Migraine Headaches

Nerve Pain


Nerve Root Pain (i.e. sciatica)

Repetitive Stress Injuries


Non- Surgical Spinal Decompression

The spine is stretched and relaxed intermittently in a controlled manner in a nonsurgical spinal decompression. This process creates a negative intradiscal pressure.

Brain health is the gateway to producing optimal health for the entire body. Assessment is made of the brain and cellular health through blood biomarkers specifically, your Omega-3/Omega-6 ratio. The doctors at Brown Anesthesia and Pain Management work together with BrainSpan Labs, using the only FDA compliant fatty-acid spot blood test supported by over 130 peer-reviewed publications. 

The research generated on this subject (Omega-3/6 ratio) is so staggering that some scientists are referring to this ratio as “The Theory of Everything” when it comes to inflammation, disease, and cellular dysfunction of the brain and body. Conversely, when this ratio is brought back to its optimal level, healing of the brain and the body is dramatic. Proper Omega-3 levels will effect everything from depression, learning disabilities, and decrease overall body and brain inflammation. Keeping proper levels of Omega-3s is neuroprotective, effective in lowering the risk of Alzheimers, dementia and other neurodegenerative conditions. 

Unfortunately due to the abundance of Omega-6 oils in the American diet, the average American is testing out of balance 25:1. Leading scientists report that the brain cannot function optimally if that ratio is skewed more than 3:1. Another study done with US prisons, revealed that violent inmates are testing out of balance between 50:1 and 70:1 Restoring these levels to optimum through proper supplementation and dietary changes is part of the depression protocol here at Brown Anesthesia and Pain Management. 

Studies also indicate that regular exercise is required in order to achieve long-term results in allowing the body and brain to age gracefully and increase longevity of life and health. One of the greatest fears of Baby-Boomers, people entering their 5th and 6th decade of life, is neurodegenerative disorders, i.e. Alzheimers, dementia, Parkinson’s, etc. These BrainSpan Assessments allow the doctors at Brown Anesthesia and Pain Management to customize a treatment plan for each individual. Following the prescribed protocol will result in increasing the odds of truly experiencing the golden years as a senior and not ending up in a memory care facility unable to function or recognize their loved ones.
