NSSD, Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression is a comfortable treatment that is computer aided and feels great. It works by gently creating separation between the spinal vertebrae 9 back bones) which allows for pressure to come off of the disc and the nerves. With sciatica, that would be the sciatic nerve which is producing the pain. Once the discs are being decompressed they are then once again able to get water, oxygen and nutrients to aid in healing and reduction of inflammation and pain.
With over 26,000 spinal decompression treatments performed over the past 17 years, our office is the largest provider of spinal decompression that we know of in San Diego as well as the state of California.
Most of our patients fall asleep or listen to podcasts or music while on the tables and it feels great. Followed up by specific spinal stabilization protocols developed by Dr. Cassidy Boelk, DC to help ensure the pain relief lasts.
3 keys for any complete sciatic nerve treatment protocol will consist of the following:
- Modification- there are numerous movements through the day that are aggravating your condition and any good doctor will discuss and set a plan to remedy this.
- Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression is extremely comfortable and takes the compression off the spinal discs which then allows the disc to come off the spinal nerves, mainly the sciatic nerve. At the same time the disc is now able to get water, oxygen and nutrients that are vital.
- Spinal Stabilization- if not addressed and the spinal and gluteal (butt) muscles are not strengthened the the pressure will once again be placed on the spinal discs which will once again cause the pain.
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.

"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.

"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
