Dr. Mike McCorkle
My treatment philosophy is rooted in my personal experiences. Growing up in West Chester, I participated in several sports and activities. A spinal fracture at age fourteen led me to my first experience with chiropractic, which was successful in fast tracking my recovery so I could return to sport.
I attended nearby Malvern Preparatory School where I was fortunate enough to receive treatment and education from one of the best High School Sports Medicine Departments in the country. Following my time at Malvern, I attended the University of New Haven to continue my passion of playing football. Several concussions later, I decided to put my health and future well-being first and transferred to West Chester University. After struggling with the side-effects of multiple career ending injuries, I developed my passion - understanding what makes the body work and how to improve my own quality of life. This passion led me to New York Chiropractic College, where I honed the skills needed to help those around me live happier, healthier, active lives.
One of my greatest learning experiences during my time at New York Chiropractic College, was the Veterans Affairs Medical Center Honors Program at the Buffalo Veteran Affairs Hospital. This program gave me the opportunity to provide our military veterans with comprehensive chiropractic services, managing complex cases including chronic pain, co-morbidities, polypharmacy, and post-traumatic stress disorder.
My time as an athlete initiated this passion in movement and functional training. Years of exercise, personal training, and rehabilitation has given me great appreciation for the importance of exercise as medicine. It is my personal goal to help each of my patients improve their current state of health whether that be an acute injury, chronic pain, or those who want to achieve their highest level of performance.
