Sciatica treatments in San Diego CA have been highly effective in our office for the past 16 years. We have performed over 25,000 treatments on disc pain patients during thsi time. Patients who are suffering from disc bulges, disc herniations and sever sciatica.
Sciatica is one of the most intense pains that a person can have and can put a complete hold on your life. There are no sports, workouts, social or intimate activities being done when a person is suffering from severe sciatica. It typically presents itself as burning, shooting, throbbing, searing, radiating, tingling and can also be numbness down one or both legs, into the gluteal (butt) muscles and sometimes aching, sharp or stabbing low back pain as well. It can often be brought upon by lifting a heavy item, doing yardwork or any activity that has the person bent over forward for a period of time. Others report moving a wrong way and then suddenly having the pain.
The reason the pain is there is due to the spinal disc being compressed and pushing the disc onto a nerve. The "sciatic" nerve which then causes "sciatica" = inflammation and irritation of the nerve.
The solution many times and thousands of times in our office with very high success rates is Spinal Decompression or NSSD - Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression. This is a computerized therapy that a patients lays down onto a table and receives a treatment by gentle distraction of the spinal vertebrae which decompresses and pulls the pressure off of the spinal discs and by turn stops the disc from pressing against the sciatic nerve and the pain is alleviated. During the treatment most patients fall asleep or watch a video on their phone. During the 20-30 minute treatment the disc is getting healed by receiving oxygen, water and nutrients back into the disc and flushing out the inflammation that is adding to the pain.
This procedure has been researched to be highly effective by Stanford University, Johns Hopkins University and Mayo clinic among others. Patients love the feeling of the treatment and the results even more!
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.

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.
Dr. Boelk has been a life saver. Have had constant lower back and sciatica pain for over 8 plus months, no pills helped and on track for multiple shots but with the treatment given I have found relief and down to zero pain. As a firefighter that relies on his body to help others and the results I have experienced it's totally worth looking into what Dr. Boelk can do for you.
