1. They have tried many various treatments,pain medications, injections, physical therapy, acupuncture, acupressure, massage therapy, chiropractic adjustments and some even surgery and they are still in pain.
2. They have not tried any or just  1 or 2 treatments and they do not want to go through all the time , energy and expense and just want to get their back fixed asap.
Some people find us online by typing in something like Herniated Disc Specialists In San Diego CA. They are doing what they can to help themselves or someone they know. 
Herniated discs are caused from excessive compression of the spine. The jelly-like discs can then not withstand the extra pressure in the spine and the gel then pushes or "herniates" and this is very painful in many cases. The disc can then be pushing onto the nerves and your pain can be severe and unrelenting and a major disruption in your life.
You need to be your own advocate, no one is coming to save you, your doctor is typically not trained in how to handle this situation and unfortunately most doctors and therapists are also not properly trained to handle this. it is not their fault, they were never taught and there is. a HUGE need for doctors that know how to successfully treat and manage these conditions.
Most of our patients have already undergone many treatments that have not provided any lasting reign at all. Pain medications, spinal injections, physical therapy, acupuncture, acupressure, massage therapy, chiropractic adjustments and surgery for some as well.


The reason these treatments fail to provide relief is actually simple. it's so simple that for some reason it is overlooked. Pain from a disc herniation comes from disc compression. When a disc gets compressed, it means the bones in the spine have compressed down and essentially “squished” the spinal discs. The disc then presses upon the spinal nerves. The nerves then cause the pain.


Until the compression is addressed, pain will remain. The pain is typically not the issue and or reason why people come to see us to get relief  and avoid surgery. The reason they come to see us is how it is affecting their lives. Missed exercise, workouts, sports events, time with friends and family, lost intimacy, lost income from work and general loss of joy of life with the high levels of pain.

"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
