San Diego Disc Herniation Help



If you are searching for San Diego disc herniation help then either you or someone you know is having some severe pain and are not sure what to do and who to see than we might be able to help you depending on what you are hoping to have happen.


There are 2 main options when dealing with disc herniations:


  1. You can focus on doing whatever you can do lower the symptoms  such as pain medications, drugs, injections or surgery.
  2. You can look for alternative and non-invasive options such as physical therapy, massage therapy, acupuncture,e acupressure, dry needling or chiropractic adjustments.


Here is the problem, in many case, we have many patients who have tried some or many or all of the above treatment options and are still in severe  pain and suffering. The reason why many people are still in pain when it coms to the above treatments. They do not address the cause of the pain and are only focusing on the symptoms and getting any immediate pain relief they can. 


In order to resolve disc herniations, we need to get right to the source and cause of the pain. By getting to the source of the pain we can have both short and long term pain relief.


In our office we do not perform massage therapy, acupuncture, acupressure, chiropractic adjustments, spinal injections or prescribe pain medications or steroids.


Instead we get right to the source of the pain with something that will correct the cause of these conditions. What is the cause of the conditions? 


Disc compression which then causes the spinal discs to press upon the spinal nerves and then the pain is  felt. Once the pin settles in it can be extremely difficult to get rid of the pain Until the compression of the spinal discs is addressed then the pain will be felt and there will be no resolution of the problem. 


We utilize Something called NSSD, Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression. This is a treatment that is researched and proven highly effective by Stanford University. Johns Hopkins University, Duke Medical Center and Mayo Clinic among others. 


This treatment is relaxing, effective and works significantly well for sciatica. It works by creating gentle reassure within the spinal discs and actually distracting the discs apart and allowing water, oxygen and nutrients to get into the disc and allow the inflammation to get flushed out of the area to start receiving the pain. We are getting right to the source and cause of the pain with this treatment which iOS the compression of the spinal discs and resulting in pressure onto the sciatica and spinal nerves which then causes the pain. 


The technology we use on our machines is advanced and this treatment is very different firm traction or inversion tables. With the use of 3 computers on the machine with one of the computers monitoring the muscles in a positive feedback lop system 16 times per second to prevent the muscles form tryin to tightening up.

"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.


"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
