Sciatica / Hip Pain
Sciatica Nerve Pain Results
“I would recommend anyone who is having acute to severe sciatic issues to visit Dr. Smith and his staff. When I first set an appointment with him I could barely sit, or bend over. I was actually in a lot of pain! He assured me that I was going to make huge progress by the end of the week. I was skeptical, but found myself feeling 80% better by the following week. My progress was amazing.” – Tiffany M.
“Before coming here I was unable to walk too far, go up and down stairs, vacuum and do yard work due to the pain in my back, hip, and front of my leg. I debated about back surgery but chose to come to Rocky Mountain Spine & Disc instead. Through their treatment and care, I am now able to do the things I was unable to do for the last year!” – Pat L.
” The day I walked into the office of Rocky Mountain Spine & Disc my life changed! I have been a hair stylist for more than 30 years. I came to this office to seek relief and hopefully help with my back and hip and knee from standing and working in my profession. I was looking for a way to do this without having to have surgery. What I found was a very friendly, professional, and unique office. If you are looking for a team of people that treat you like family (not just a client) that really cares about you as a person, has integrity, respect and professionalism you need to seek out this office. Thank you for giving me hope when I was hopeless, for working with me and showing me that there are doctors out there today that really do care and are concerned with health and way of life. Most of all for helping me get my way of life back! ” – Pamela P.
“I have been very pleased with the results of my treatments at Rocky Mountain Spine and Disc. I suffered from sciatica for a number of years, which made a number of activities I enjoy very difficult. Since I was skeptical, I first consulted a medical doctor specializing in back and spinal problems to seek treatment for my problem. This consultation informed me that I had two options: a series of spinal injections to provide temporary relief, or back surgery. Since neither of these procedures was acceptable to me, I decided to look elsewhere for relief. I decided to seek treatment with Dr. Smith for my back pain. The results achieved by Dr. Smith have been truly amazing to me. After only a few treatments, my lower back pain has decreased significantly. Subsequent treatments have further reduced lower back pain. On a scale of 1 to 10, my back pain has been reduced from an 8 (prior to seeing Dr. Smith) to a 2. As a result, I have been able to resume the activities which I previously had to discontinue.” – Gene Z.
"As I got up one morning with severe back pain and a severe ache down the front of my left thigh. I couldn’t stand or walk without severe pain. I had no idea what was happening. I couldn’t take any steps at all without a lot of pain. I had to use a cane to walk and if I went any distance at all, I had to use a wheel chair. I decided I had better go to my medical doctor. A Cat Scan was ordered and it showed I had a herniated disc between the 3rd and 4th lumbar vertebra. Pain medication did not relieve the pain. The doctor suggested an epidural injection (which only addresses the effect and doesn’t cure the cause), and the next thing would be surgery which I wanted to avoid. That would be the last resort! My wife, Irene saw an ad in the newspaper about Rocky Mountain Spine and Disc. We got on the computer to check out the website and decided to visit Dr. Irven.
After four weeks of treatment, I have thrown away the cane and wheel chair and I am PAIN FREE! -Al B.
I am very thankful for finding Rocky Mountain Spine and Disc. I was in so much pain, I could not walk and my balance was completely off. No other chiropractor or doctor could help me. My doctor referred me to RMSD. I did not want surgery and I was living on pain pills. Dr. Irven took x-rays of my back and hips. They found where the pain was coming from. Dr. Smith and his assistant did some adjustments and treatments. After the first treatment, I knew that I was going to get better. I had to use ice for a couple of treatments, but no pain pills. I was so glad to get off of them. I got my life back. Thank you RMSD. -Darlene W.
I have had a positive experience. I came here with severe sciatic pain. In less than three weeks, my pain is now gone. I haven’t felt better in a long time. Before, I couldn’t sit or stand for long periods of time. Dr. Irven is awesome, they really care about their patients. I would recommend them to anyone. Thank you very much – on the road to feeling better! -Charles M.
I have seen many doctors for low back pain and sacrum pain shooting down my legs. I could hardly move and it looked like surgery was my last option. I came to see RMSD through a friend. It was the best appointment I had made. To my surprise, within the past months of treatment and home therapy, I am enjoying my life once again. My pain levels are almost nil, which I have not experienced for almost 10 years. My body feels better, I am moving with ease, and my breathing has even gotten better.
I am so grateful to Dr. Smith and the staff at Rocky Mountain Spine & Disc. I can’t even explain it. Dr. Smith told me he could help and he really has done all of that and more. Thank you so much! -Kay S.

I first came here about four months ago. I could hardly walk. My lower back was in bad shape. Through her x-rays and knowledge of the spine, Dr. Irven found the issues and went straight to work. She had me back on my feet, after following her instructions, in no time. Dr. Irven knows her stuff. Thanks for all you have done for me! – Corey R.
I find I walk taller and low back does not hurt anymore. The other day I had a stranger notice how good my posture and stride was while I was out walking. I keep my shoulders back, and my head up now. I want to be healthy, so I am trying to do my part too. – Marlyn S.
I suffered from spinal stenosis for a number of years, resulting in lower back pain which made a number of activities I enjoy very difficult. Since I was skeptical of the value of chiropractic treatment, I first consulted a medical doctor specializing in back and spinal problems to seek treatment for my problem. This consultation informed me that I had two options: a series of spinal injections to provide temporary relief, or back surgery. Since neither of these procedures was acceptable to me, I decided to look elsewhere for relief. I decided to seek treatment with Dr. Smith for my back pain. The results I’ve achieved have been truly amazing to me. After only a few treatments, my pain has decreased significantly. On a scale of 1 to 10, my back pain has been reduced from an 8 (prior to seeing Dr. Smith) to a 2. As a result, I have been able to resume the activities which I previously had to discontinue. – Gene Z.
I decided to see Dr. Irven after my husband’s consultation. I liked her approach at finding the problems and how she would treat them. I have a herniated disc in my lower back that I refused to have surgery on, and I would have pain in my neck when I turned my head. Since beginning treatment with Dr. Irven I no longer have any pain in my lower back or neck! I have never been excited about going to the doctor until I met Dr. Irven. Her personality is awesome, and she has helped my husband and I so much. I can’t imagine ever going to another chiropractor. You rock, Dr. Irven! – Debbie T.
When I came in to RMSD, I had severe lower back pain that was interfering with daily tasks and overall outlook on life. After meeting with Dr. Irven for the first time, she lifted my hopes of recovery more than I could have ever imagined. Even more, she educated me so I knew exactly what was going on and set me on a path to recovery. I am now 100% confident in my recovery and am happier with myself. My pain has already decreased dramatically and my posture improved. Thanks to Dr. Irven I actually feel like a 20 year old again! I would highly recommend this place to everyone! It will be the best decision of your life! -Haley B.
When I first came to RMSD, I was in really bad shape. I couldn’t walk more than a few yards and couldn’t stand for more than a minute or two. I couldn’t sit straight or find any comfortable sleeping position. I was suffering from severe sciatic pain, alternating from the left side to the right, and my quality of life was very poor. I was greatly encouraged by Dr. Irven’s logical, data-driven approach, which focused on achievable goals and measurable results. With her recommendations and a thorough treatment plan, we worked together to achieve each of the goals we set, and far more. The results have been beyond expectations.
My quality of life has improved tremendously, and I am no longer in constant pain. I am excited to take on home projects again, and (most of all) look forward to heading out for my first round of golf in over two years. My deepest thanks to Dr. Irven and her incredible staff for restoring my ability to enjoy all that life has to offer! – Jeff T.
Many years ago I injured my lower back. For years I suffered frequent backaches, limited motion, and a tingling sensation. Just a few short months ago, I decided I was tired of living with all this discomfort and started Chiropractic care. The results have been LIFE CHANGING! All symptoms are gone! The benefits of more energy, greater mobility, and no more leg pain make each and every day of my life that much more rewarding. -Rich H.
I feel like I no longer have lower back pain & my neck & shoulders feel much better. Dr. Irven has been very kind and helpful. When I first came to Dr. Irven I couldn’t even turn my neck and I had lower back pain all the time. I feel like I have way better range of motion and can do yoga again! -Christina F.
I had suffered from sciatica and back pain for 4 years. After 3 doctors, several injections into my hip bone and 2 physical therapists, I walked into Rocky Mountain Spine and Disc. Not really knowing her, I wanted to try one more thing before I let the doctor do surgery. Three months after seeing Dr. Irven, my sciatica is gone, my back is 80% better and my neck is 90% better! I’ll never go to a physical therapist again…..this has been a miracle for me! You have helped me so much, I will refer you always! -Marsha D.
I recently started going to RMSD. I have always been a skeptic of chiropractic care and the benefits of it. As I have grown older, the pains I have put up with have increased. I decided to listen to my wife and make an appointment. After my evaluation, Dr. Irven and Dr. Smith recommended x-rays. After going over the x-rays they came up with a treatment plan. After several treatments I couldn’t believe the difference. My neck and back pain were significantly reduced and I feel better than I have in years! I can tell you that Dr’s Irven and Smith are very caring and devoted to the well-being of their patients. I have been told that I can be stubborn and I can tell you one thing, I think RMSD is great and they have made a believer out of me. -Ed V.
I have been seeing Chiropractors, even worked for one, over the past twenty years. I am enjoying reduced back pain, better sleep, weight loss and no more tingling down my arm. While these are things most Chiropractors can provide, Rocky Mountain Spine and Disc does more. The personal attention, extra care and concern for my overall health and wellness go beyond a basic adjustment. Not only are my neck and back getting better, but every function of my body is improving.
Thanks! -Kimberly P.
When I started seeing Dr. Irven I was in my last trimester of pregnancy and having severe pain in my lower back and right leg that was affecting my mobility and my ability to work. Since coming to RMSD, all of the nerve and muscle pain in my right leg has disappeared and my lower back pain is almost completely gone. I am able to look forward to the birth of my daughter with a lot less pain and a lot more joy! -Alexa E.
I came into RMSD with severe pain in my hip that radiated down my leg. I was unable to stand for more than a couple minutes without pain. I could not walk for more than 5 minutes without severe pain that required me to sit down several times during a short grocery shopping trip. When I was shown my x-rays and Dr. Irven explained the serious issues with my spine I was scared and did not hold out a lot of hope for my recovery. Throughout my treatment I have been showered with hope and optimism. I now see improvement in so many areas. And I have HOPE! Thank you! -Holly H.
I am a former athlete who was discouraged by what I was not able to do, physically, as I got older. Before I came to Rocky Mountain Spine & Disc, I was experiencing lower back pain on the right side. My legs were becoming knock-kneed and I knew that would NOT improve on its own! Even my walking gait had changed. Since knee replacement was last on my list, I sought an alternative. X-Rays at RMSD showed one leg shorter than the other, and that my spine was not straight. Consequently, my knees were taking the brunt of all this by compensating. My decision was made! I was amazed how much better my body worked after only the first week of treatment! My confidence in what I can do has grown, the back pain is gone and I haven’t had to wear my orthotics! Thank you, Dr. Smith for the TLC and for giving me what seems to be a new lease on my life! -Jen W.
I previously had back surgery 13 years ago for a herniated disc. Since that surgery, I had 2 more herniated discs, and was determined to not ever have back surgery again. I have a very physically active occupation and I thought I was going to have to quit working. I was very impressed with Dr. Irven and her staff from the very first appointment. They are very knowledgeable and extremely caring. They believe in treating the cause, not just the symptoms. After my first treatment, I was pain free for the first time in years! I wasn’t healed instantly, and knew it would be a process, but the relief from my pain was so encouraging. I am physically so much better off than when I started, and happy to say am still able to continue working. I truly believe in Dr. Irven’s care. Her treatments have healed more issues than just my back pain. She truly cares about my health & well-being.
I highly recommend trying Rocky Mountain Spine and Disc to anyone who is suffering any kind of spinal injury or pain first, before having surgery. -Lori S.
