NSSD or Non-Surgical Spinal Decompresison i s a comfortable procedure aided by multiple computer guided systems as well as settings inputted and protocols developed by our clinic director and founder, Dr. Cassidy Boelk, DC. After suffering from a broken back, sciatica and multiple disc herniations, he has developed unique and leading edge protocols to resolve sciatica at its source and treat the cause of the pain rather than just treat symptoms only.
Sciatica is caused from the disc being ciompressed and the nerve then being aggravated as it is pushed upon from the disc which is out fo place or “bulged” or “herniated”. During this process the disc which has no direct blood supply and relies ion getting nutrition from changes in pressure gradients as well as the vertebral endplates can no longer get essential nutrients such as glucose and glycoaminoglycans or (GAGS).
Think of GAGS like little fingers that grab water molecules to help lubricate the tissues and prevent pain from occurring. When these are not able to be fed and or stimulated then pain levels can rise and this is another cause for the pain.
Suffice it to day , if the disc in your back are either compressed and or not moving properly then they do not get essential comments and this causes pain. We restore this proper motion to allow the disc to get its nutrients once again so that proper nutrition reaches the disc and we treat the problem directly at the source this way. This is why some refer to us as the San Diego Sciatica specialists.

"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
