Sciatica Experts In San Diego CA



When dealing with the pain, frustration and hopelessness of sciatica and the lack of relief with each failed treatment, there can be some fear that begins to set in which is completely natural. Most of our patients that come to see if we can help them have tried multiple treatments that did not help including the following:
-Pain Medications
-Muscle relaxants
-Oral steroids
-Physical Therapy
-Spinal injections
-Chiropractic Adjustments
-Massage Therapy
-Surgery for some
Some patients will report that they get some slight pain relief with a few of these treatments but unfortunately the pain relief does not last much more than a few hours to a few days if any. We have been successfully treating sciatica in San Diego for the past 16 years and are referred to by many as sciatica experts in San Diego CA.
Here is the challenge, all of these treatments although well meaning re only focused on the symptoms and not the cause of the pain. They are focusing on inflammation, muscles and joints. However with sciatica the pain is coming form compression of the spinal discs which then pushes the spinal discs into the sciatica nerve and therefore you have pain, now referred to as “sciatica”. Typically these patients report that they either had a sudden onset of leg , hip, back or glut, butt muscle pain after heavy exercise, prolonged sitting, yard work or prolonged bed rest or house cleaning or cooking. Others will feel the pain slowly increase for no reason they can necessarily think of. 
Over time, the spinal discs outer layer can weaken and in many case actually have a tear on the disc similar to a minor tar in a muscle from an injury. When this disc tears and there is compression onto the same disc, this is when it is highly likely that the disc will then “bulge” or “herniate” which causes the disc to push on the nerve and there you have your pain.
Therefore our solution will need to include booth decompressing the spine to pul the disc off of the nerve and then stabilize the spine so the pain does not return. Paired with learning how to better move your body day in and day out to reduce unwanted stress and pressure on the discs is the combination of solving the pain and treating the cause rather than only the symptoms.

"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.
