Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression, NSSD gets right to the source and cause of th epipen with spinal stenosis. 
Most people suffering with pain caused from spinal stenosis is caused by a few conditions.
1. They have a bulging or herniated disk which is compressing the nerves and causing spinal stenosis.
2. They have degenerative disc disease and the disk has compressed so much that it is causing spinal stenosis
3. They have fractured their spine and there is a piece of bone pressing upon the nerves and causing stenosis.
There needs to be proper examination, x-rays and MRI performed in order to properly diagnose this condition.
Once properly diagnosed , if it is #1 or
#2 then we can help, if #3 then a spinal surgeon is who to see to inquire if surgery is necessary.
The majority of the time it is a compressed or herniated disc that is causing the pain. This disc pushes upon the spinal nerves and it can be in severe and debilitating pain. I am talking can't walk, work, exercise or do much at all other than lay down due to the pain. We specialize in helping this exact scenario.
Spinal decompression was developed by a team of engineers and is a calming, relaxing and very comfortable treatment. Most of our patients actually fall asleep on the decompression machines. The discs are decompressed and able to once again get water, oxygen and critical nutrients back which allows for proper healing of the discs and allows for proper flushing out of the inflammation that was adding to the pain. We then strengthen the spine through individualized and specific spinal stabilization protocols developed and designed by our clinic director and founder, Dr. Cassidy Boelk DC.
Our treatments we use are clinically proven highly effective and have been researched by Johns Hopkins University, Stanford University, Duke Medical Center and Mayo Clinic among others.
Rated the #1 Spinal Decompression office in San Diego for many reasons. Here is a quick guide to finding the best office when searching for Spinal Decompression:
1. Does the office specialize In Spinal Decompression or is it just one of many multiple treatments they offer? We have seen many patients come from other offices who said they are specialists and experts in spinal decompression but only treat 3 or 4 patients a day on decompression.
2. Is the doctor or staff actually getting the patients on the treatments? Spinal Decompression is a specialized skill and requires daily decision making and protocols vary from person to person, it is not a one size fits all approach. Many patients come from different offices and inform us they were getting decompression but it was done by the staff and many times they are in pain when on the tables. The treatments should not be painful but feel good.
3. Is the doctor Certified? There are many doctors who are utilizing spinal decompression who are not certified. It is best to see someone who took the time and learned the process and is certified.
4. Do they have a good reputation and reviews that report the doctor and office and staff are looking out for the patient and there is a common theme of the doctor caring and wanting the best for their patients?
5. Experience? How long has the office been utilizing spinal decompression? How many sessions have they performed? You want to see someone who has a lot of experience and knowledge in their field when looking for spinal decompression offices.

"I came in with extreme back pain, resulting in days where 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 lasts 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 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
