We have been specializing in disc herniations for the past 16 years and with over 26,000 treatments we have learned a thing or 2 about how to best treat disc herniations and keep the pain away long-term.
There are 3 main keys when it comes to treating disc herniations and sadly most doctors who claim to be specialists or experts in treating disc herniations are unaware of these.
1. Modification - there needs to be an awareness of what is causing the pain and then that needs to be modified so it no longer occurs. For example how do you get in and out of the car, a chair, how do you pick something up off the floor, there are many modifications that need to be discussed.
2. Decompression - the vast majority of disc herniations are the result of spinal compression. Pressure on the spinal discs causing the disc to bulge or herniated out and then press upon the nerves and cause the pain. We utilize a treatment called NSSD - Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression. This is gentle and clinically researched to be highly effective for disc herniations studied by Johns Hopkins University, Stanford University and Mayo Clinic among others.
3. Core Stabilization - There needs to be a specific plan and protocol to get the person's back muscles to be able to support themselves without compressing the discs once again. Unfortunately the majority of the exercises aimed at strengthening the core and abdominals are clinically proven to worsen the back pain and actually can cause disc herniations in the first place.
NSSD or Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression is a gentle, computer aided treatment that works to decompress the spinal discs which then takes the pressure off the spinal nerves and allows the disc to once again receive water, oxygen and nutrients to help repair the disc and treat the cause of the problem rather than focusing on the symptoms only. The most important is we get you back to feeling good, exercising, working, family activities and enjoying life once again.

"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


"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.


"I highly recommend Dr.Boelk to everyone who has issues with their back and neck. After 2 months of treatment I am feeling a considerable difference. Dr. Boelk's skills and experience are incredible. Especially I appreciate his "very cautious and attentive " approach to the health: no unnecessary adjustment and procedures. I am very grateful to Dr.Boelk for his knowledgeable and professional treatment." - Olga M.
