Sciatica is a painful condition generally characterized by compression or dysfunction of the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve starts in the lower back and travels down into the back of the leg all the way into the foot. Many people find that living with sciatica can be incredibly difficult. It can be an extremely debilitating condition that can disrupt your everyday activities. Left unchecked, the nerve could become permanently damaged. So, if your sciatica has become a problem, it’s important to get it checked out from the team at Cornerstone Chiropractic.
The most tell-tale sign of sciatica is pain that goes from your lower back all the way down your legs. The pain can be dull and achy, or it can be piercing like a jolt of electricity.

For many people, the sciatic nerve is compressed either due to a vertebrae that has shifted or disc concerns such as degenerative disc disease.
After chiropractic treatment, patients may experience immediate relief or it can take a series of visits to completely eliminate sciatica pain.
It’s unlikely that sciatica will completely go away on its own. However, with consistent chiropractic treatments, sciatica is managed and often eliminated.
Dr. Mike is personable and listens to his patients. My primary interaction with him was with one of my wrestlers that was tryin to get back on the mat after numerous surgeries. He tried and tried and continued to have problems with his shoulder. He was sidelined for a good portion of his senior year. Dr. Mike started working with him a couples days a week. This last for for about 8 weeks. He was ultimately able to compete and placed 3rd in the state tournament. What is truly unique is that he had gone to numerous other experts and the results were always the same. It was different with Dr. mike and so were the results. This guy does it right and gets results! I strongly recommend him.
