Sciatica, which is also known as sciatic neuralgia, is a condition that causes pain in the lower back, down the back of the leg, and into the foot. It can make sitting and standing for long periods of time difficult and can lead to weakness, tingling, and numbness in the leg and foot. It will often come and go throughout a person's lifetime, causing periods of varying degrees of pain and discomfort. If left unchecked, sciatic pain will generally grow worse and the nerve can become permanently injured. There are a number of factors that can lead to sciatica such as:
Some people respond very quickly while others take more time to recover. It really depends on the condition of the disc or the joints that the chiropractor has to correct. In most cases, the longer the issue persists, the longer it will take to achieve correction. The great news is that it typically takes less time to fix an issue like this than it took to create it. Once the position of the spine and discs are improved, patients often report improvements to their overall health.

I'm so grateful to have found a chiropractor who not only excels in the activator method, but is also concerned about the well being of his patients. Dr. Pokorney takes steps to educate his patients and helps them live without pain in their day to day life. I'm so relaxed by the time I leave the office that I feel like I've spent the day at the spa.
I have never been a fan of the traditional twisting, pulling, popping. I have never heard of the activator method until I started getting treatment here at Pure Chiropractic. But man I love it. It has truly helped my health get back to normal. Honestly the best I have ever felt in years. Been dealing with a lot of pain in different areas and feel like a new person now. I will forever go to a chiropractor that uses the activator method. Thank you Dr P for all that you have done so far and all that you do in the future!!
I strongly recommend Pure Chiropractic. I have had back, neck and knee pain and mobility issues from various injuries ans work. Since seeing Dr. Pokorney I have so much more mobility and he has even relieved/corrected tons of issues I didn’t even realize. I feel better than I have in years and have been able to work a lot harder than before and still go home in little to no pain.
