Sciatica Leg pain treatments in San Diego CA
Lost time with friends and family, lost workouts and sports activities, social events, intimacy and income from lack of productivity at work can be extremely frustrating. We have seen sciatica leg patients for the ast 16 years and have specialize in helping people just like you or the loved one you're doing research to get out of pain fast. We do not utilize drugs, injections, surgery or non-productive chiropractic adjustment over and over again. We have a very unique protocol that works very well and part of that treatment has been researched by Johns Hopkins University, Stanford University and Mayo clinic among others showing a very high success rate with treatment.
One of the components of our protocols is utilizing something called NSSD, Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression
. This is a very comfortable and effective treatment that treats the source of the pain with sciatica and sciatica leg pain which is the compressed disc pushing upon the nerve causing the painful sensation. Until the cause of the pain is addressed, the pain will not reduce and any reduction achieved will not last if not treated properly. Spinal stabilization is a necessary component to prevent the pain from returning.
For the past 16 years, we have performed over 26,000 spinal decompression sessions and are in constant learning mode to improve the outcomes and effectiveness of our protocols. Our clinic director and founder, Dr Cassidy Boelk DC
has personal experience after suffering from a broken back and multiple disc herniations as well as severe sciatica. He incorporates everything he has learned over the past 25 years on his patients to help them recover as fast as possible, and get back to enjoying life once again.
*Tips for Sciatica Leg pain:
1. Try walking some, even if it hurts, you are not going to damage your spine just by walking, 10-15 minutes can help to take some pressure off the disc and nerves.
2. Drink plenty of water - half your bodyweight in ounces.
3. Avoid prolonged sitting. Sitting for more than an hour at a time can be very compressive to the spine, rule of thumb, for every hour , try to be upright for 20 minutes of the hour.
*Please check with your doctor as this is not medical but general advice, some may vary depending on your condition.

"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.
