Dr. Cassidy Boelk DC has been utilizing NSSD, Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression for the past 17 years. His office is the busiest spinal decompression office in the state of California that we know of. 
He personally oversees and performs every decompression visit in his office to ensure the best outcomes possible. He has personally received his own neck and back from multiple sports injuries including a broken back, disc herniation and sciatica. He has learned a tremendous amount during his own recovery and treatments and incorporates what he has learned daily with his current patients. There is a reason his office is voted the #1 Spinal Decompression Office in San Diego.
When it comes to treating sciatica, it is critical that we get to the cause of the pain and not just treat the symptoms only. This is why we have a very detailed intake that allows us to do just that, get to the cause of the pain, identify what it is and then see if we can help that individual with treatment. We are not perfect of course but we do have very high success rates with our patients and the treatments we perform have been researched and proven highly effective through Johns Hopkins University, Stanford University, Duke Medical Center and Mayo clinic among others.
Sciatica is one of our specialties and closely related to herniated discs, bulging discs, protruding discs, degenerative discs, spinal stenosis, foraminal stenosis. These are all a consequence of having significant disc compression which then pushes upon the spinal discs and the spinal nerves then get pinched or compressed and there you have your pain.
Therefore we need to absolutely address the spinal compression in order to solve the cause. NSSD or Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression is a gentle, relaxing and highly effective treatment we have been specializing and refining for the past 16 years. 


With over 26,000 treatments performed we are still going strong and thoroughly enjoy helping all of our patients get out of pain. No drugs, injections or surgery are performed in our office. We love the great stories of our patients getting out of pain and back to their lives, sports, jobs and activities. 


 He truly cares for all his patients and gives them the bets he can to get them out of pain and avoid spinal surgery. 


“My name is Lynn. I am from Alaska, and I just want to say it was totally worth taking a trip to go to the Spinal Decompression & Chiropractic Center of San Diego. I was having pain radiating down my legs, I couldn’t sleep, I could barely walk.


After treatment I am back to shoveling snow, teaching school, taking walks. So, I just want to thank Dr. Boelk and the clinic, you guys are wonderful, and you have created such a wonderful, friendly, kind and truly caring atmosphere. I highly encourage anybody that might be considering spinal decompression therapy, it really makes a difference.”

"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


"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
