Our methods have been repeated thousands of patients over and have allowed patients to avoid undergoing surgical procedures and getting their lives back by undergoing our treatment protocols designed by our head doctor and clinic founder and director, Dr. Cassidy Boelk DC. He developed unique strategies and protocols after years of unproductive treatments, therapies and failed attempts to alleviate his painful sciatica caused from a disc herniation.
What he found was 3 key components that were missing with all the therapies he was being treated with. Through trial and error and many frustrating failures he has been able to solidify and discover what is th best and quickest pay way to get pain relief without surgery that really lasts.
The 3 key components all deserve a full book written about each but for here is a brief description of all three.
- Avoidance- Yes, avoidance. What activities or motions should be avoided on a daily basis that could be contributing to your painful condition? I can guarantee there are multiple ways in which I could help you improve how you move on a daily basis that would greatly reduce your pain. Now do I know this? Because I have lived it myself and have created a certain way to move that minimizes the painful stimulus that keeps getting triggered with certain movements.
- NSSD Therapy or Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression aka Spinal Decompression - This is a unique treatment researched by world renowned medical institutions such as Stanford University, Johns Hopkins University and Mayo Clinic. This treatment has reliably and highly successfully shown that patients with sciatica and disc herniations and bulges have received significant an d long lasting pain relief. This treatment is not traction and works very differently with unique and specific protocols for each patient, it is nit a one foot al approach.
- Spinal Stabilization- this is by far the most overlooked component of a proper and thorough sciatica pain relief program. Unfortunately far too many doctors and clinicians do not know enough about proper spinal biomechanics and movements to effectively teach their own patients and therefor the pain reduction received prior to spinal stabilization is often short lived.

"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.
"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
