Sciatica

Sciatica is a common type of pain that affects the sciatic nerve, a large nerve which extends from the lower back down the back of each leg.

Depending on the severity, pain can also be felt in the foot or toes. Sciatica typically affects only one side of the body. In most people, sitting makes the pain worse.

Sciatica is caused by irritation of the root(s) of the lower lumbar and lumbosacral spine.

Balanced Wellness Chiropractic has successfully treated hundreds of patients suffering from Sciatica pain. Avoid surgery and drugs. Call today to see if we can help.

Additional causes of sciatica include: 

  • Lumbar Spinal Stenosis

    Narrowing of the spinal canal in the lower back.

  • Degenerative Disc Disease

    The breakdown of discs between your vertebrae. Occurs after prolong subluxation.

  • Spondylolisthesis

    A condition in which one vertebra slips forward over another one  .

  • Pregnancy

    The sciatic nerve runs under your uterus to your legs. Pressure on the nerve caused by the developing baby.

Other things that may make your back pain worse include being overweight, not exercising regularly, wearing high heels, or sleeping on a mattress that is too soft. Seek immediate medical attention if you have progressive lower extremity weakness, numbness in the upper thighs, and/or loss of bladder or bowel control.

I know there is so much controversy between chiropractic and medical care, but if it were not for chiropractic I would still be in pain. A car accident left me with constant lower back pain. I tried everything from painkillers to preparing to have surgery. I heard stories from my friends who had surgery and to this day wish they never had it. So I decided to go to a chiropractor before the surgery and I am so thankful that I did. My back pains are gone and I am living my life to the fullest and pain free.

I highly recommend the electronic acupuncture from Balanced Wellness. I have wear and tear damage in my thumb joint and the acupunture treatments reduce the pain in the joint for several days. Love the acupuncture! You don't realize your back is out until you have it looked at...just that tense achy feeling in your back. HUGE difference after first treatment! Awesome clinic Drs. Schmidt!

I recently came in for new patient consultation. I wanted to compliment you on the clinic and your staff. Everyone was very helpful and the information you provided was very educational and helped me understand the source of my discomfort and pain.

Words can't even describe how pleased my husband and I are with Dr. Schmidt! I'm a former flight nurse and wore a flight helmet with night vision goggles on a regular basis and was in excruciating neck and back pain on a daily basis. I was very nervous about going to a chiropractor, and Dr. Schmidt picked up on my anxiety right away. He put my mind at ease and has turned me into a believer! I only have to go every two weeks now, but I look forward to my visits with him, as does my husband (who is being treated for lower back pain and was being treated for spinal decompression). Dr. Schmidt is literally second to none! When I was at a very stressful point in my life, he convinced me to try acupuncture for stress relief. I thought he was crazy, but I decided to give it a try. Holy cow, does it work!!! I also receive these treatments every two weeks, and I can always tell when I'm due for a treatment. Dr. Schmidt and his staff are the friendliest you'll meet anywhere and they all have the best sense of humor! They're all very good at putting patients at ease. I love going in every two weeks (almost makes me a little sad that I've "graduated" to that high of an interval)! Look no further, you've found your chiropractor acupuncturist right here!

I love this office! I'm so happy I found an acupuncturist of this caliber in Oklahoma City. At Balanced Wellness, the environment is beautiful and most importantly very clean. And Allison, Tanner and Dr. Schmidt are courteous and professional beyond words. After several months of acupuncture, I've started utilizing his chiropractic services and haven't felt this relaxed and pain free in years. I look forward to my visits every week and cannot praise this practice enough.

I'll admit I'm a bit hard-headed, and I was skeptical that using a chiropractor would impact my athletic ability in roller derby in a noticeable way. However, after the first month at Balanced Wellness I was all in. Dr. Schmidt not only helped correct alignment issues from desk work in my day job, but also significantly improved recovery time by making adjustments before and after my roller derby bouts as needed. Now, after using balanced Wellness all season, I'm a believer. Cutting recovery time has allowed me to focus on improving as a skater and contributing to my team without the distraction of joint pain. I highly recommend adding Balanced Wellness to every athlete's training routine!

Dirk Hooper

I can't recommend Balanced Wellness highly enough. Dr. Schmidt and the staff at Balanced Wellness are exceptionally professional and very nice. The office is clean and relaxing. I can personally attest to the exceptional results that I experienced through treatment. I've sent friends here, so I'm confident in this recommendation.

I cannot even begin to say how glad I am that I found Dr. Schmidt! I had surgery on my lower back several years back and have recently experienced a bulging disk. Dr. Schmidt has treated me for almost 4 weeks non-stop to get my lower back functioning properly. I am able to return to the gym and he has a plan for maintenance to help keep me out of the operating room! He's beyond excellent and I am grateful to have him as my doctor. The fact that the facilities are clean and the staff is friendly, is but a bonus! Thank you!!!
