We have been helping patients for the past 16 years and have performed over 25,000 spinal decompression treatments during this time, focusing on getting fast pain relief and keeping the pain away for good.
Decompression therapy has been proven successful and repeatable by many organizations including Johns Hopkins, Stanford Universities, Mayo clinic and many others. Designed to treat severe back and neck pain, disc bulges, disc herniations, sciatica, spinal stenosis, foraminal stenosis, degenerative disc disease. Spinal decompression focuses on treating the cause of the actual pain and not just the symptoms.
It is most common for patients with back and neck pain to have compression of their discs which is causing the pain. This is why many traditional treatments such as physical therapy, acupuncture, chiropractic adjustments, spinal injections and even surgery cannot help many of these patients and conditions. These treatments are focusing on muscles, joints and symptoms. The pain is coming however from the compressed disc and lack of spinal stability.
This is why we focus on these 2 keys.
1. NSSD, Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression. This treatment works by gently distracting the spinal vertebrae apart in a comfortable manner (most patients fall asleep during the treatment). This then allows the pressure to come off the disc which then takes the pressure off of the nerves that are causing the pain while the disc is then able to get water, oxygen and nutrients and begin healing just like a wound or a cut on the outside of our skin can do with proper healing. We are spinal decompression experts.
2. Spinal stability is a huge key and the most overlooked when dealing with back and neck pain. If we do not stabilize the spine, the history will repeat itself and the patient will end up in pain once again as their muscles are not strong enough to keep the pressure off the discs. We are experts at spinal stability.

"I came in with extreme back pain, resulting in days were it was difficult to get out of bed.  There were moments where I would be walking and then my back would lock up.  I thought it was something I have dealt with in the past but this last the entire month of July.  I finally dedicated myself to finding the long term solution.  

‘I came to Dr. Boelk unsure about the process, but after he identified exactly what my ailment was, I felt confident that this was the long term solution I was looking for. I instantly felt better and Dr. Boelk kept encouraging me to trust the process and understand it will take time to feel 100%.  I am now pain free and honestly feel stronger, even a little taller.   I highly recommend you visit Dr. Boelk." - Ming T.

Especially I appreciate his "very cautious and attentive " approach to the health: no unnecessary adjustment and procedures.

"Dr. Boelk & his staff are by far the BEST at spinal decompression. I walked into his office unable to sit to do my job, where I was having to lay each day & within a couple of weeks he helped me with being able to sit again. His attention to you & the way he will make you feel is unparalleled. First of all, he has suffered from some severe back issues, so his empathy is very high. Secondly, he is extremely caring & genuinely wants to help people. I've never worked with a doctor who has cared as much and made me feel like I was his only patient before. There would be 4 people there at the same time, and he still made me feel this way. I guess I just cannot thank him enough & cannot recommend him enough. He is an angel on earth. If you visit him, please listen to him & follow his instructions. He knows what's best for you. " - Erin T
