If you or a friend or loved one is suffering from sciatica then you know how it can dramatically impact your life, the pain is severe and can be unrelenting for sure. Many of our patients who used to suffer form sciatica and are back to their active lives send in patients just like them.
You may have come across this article while searching sciatica leg pain relief in San Diego CA. Sometimes sciatica can be only in the butt or gluteal muscles and other times it can run down into the hamstring, form t or side of the leg and other times it can run all the way down the entire leg. Most times sciatica will be down one leg only on some occasions it can be both legs. There are instances of patients having only calf pain or foot numbness and tingling as well.
With these type of symptoms, the cause is typically always the same. A spinal disc in the low back is compressed and the jelly like substance inside the disc pushes onto the nerve which then shoots the pain down the leg. This pain can be burning, stabbing, shooting, throbbing, aching, and prevent you form being able to exercise, work, get thru your daily activities and robs you of precious time with friends and family that you will never get back.
Every single week we get new patients who have tried multiple treatments such as physical therapy, injections, massage therapy, Acupuncture , chiropractic adjustments and some even surgery as well as multiple pain medications. Unfortunately all these treatments are focused on the symptoms only and do not focus on the cause fo the pain, which is the compression of the spinal disc.
Until there is pressure is received, any relief achieved form the above therapies will be temporary if any relief at all and many time the pain worsens as these treatments will irritate the nerves and disc and actually cause more compression.

"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.
