The most frustrating thing with having sciatica is the unrelenting pain that never gives you a moment of comfort and prevents you from getting proper rest, sleep and living your life fully. Exercise, work routines and family interactions are significantly affected when someone is suffering with the severe and intense pain of sciatica. Best sciatica solution in San Diego CA is here and available to you!
The unrelenting pain and lack of solutions received once you go to your family doctor and are prescribed pain medications, injections and physical therapy that yields no results becomes more and more frustrating and the feelings of desperation and hopelessness grow stronger than ever.
This is typically when your doctor may then tell you the only solution at that point is surgery. It is completely understandable that is when you begin feeling that is the only solution left.
Thus is exactly why our clinic exists and where we specialize in helping these conditions and save these patients form undergoing surgery. Although surgery can sometimes be helpful for immediate pain relief, the problem is the surgery never addresses the why behind th pain and the disc that was compressed and pushing against the sciatic nerve that was causing your pain is still compressed.
It is no longer pushing on the nerve because that part of the disc was cut off by the surgeon so that is why you feel better. But after 6-18 months because the compressed disc is still compressed and no able to receive water, oxygen or nutrients it continues to become dehydrated and lack the necessary nutrients to keep the tissue healthy.
The compression of the disc slowly causes another piece of the disc to push against the nerve and the same sciatica pain can then return. Now, there are certainly cases that because of the size of the disc that is compressed require surgery but there are several cases that surgery is unnecessary.
We utilize a different approach in our office and have been doing so for the past 16 years with over 25,000 treatments performed. NSSD or Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression aka Spinal Decompression is one of the key components of our sciatica pain relief protocols we utilize in the office.
Spinal Decompression works by creating a gentle distraction on the spinal bones (vertebrae) which reduces the pressure within the spinal disc and distracting the disc that was pushing on the the nerve causing the pain. The disc can then also gets its water, oxygen and nutrients and heal properly.
This treatment combined with teaching patients what activities to avoid and how to better move their bodies during their daily habits as well as proper spinal stabilization protocols is highly successful.
Research by Stanford University, Joins Hopkins and Mayo Clinic support and reveal that spinal decompression for disc pain is a highly successful treatment that can save patients form undergoing surgery.

"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.

"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
