Many search for something like Spinal Decompression For Neck & Back Pain In San Diego CA and that is how we pop up, many also get referred in to see us from a co-worker, family member or friend.


Neck and back pain can arise from many different structures. Joints, ligaments, discs, muscles, tendons or a combination of all these as well. sources. For example, there are ligaments that hold bones to other bones that are non-elastic and very strong. When injured, the term “sprain” is applied. The muscle and/or its attachment (the tendon) can tear as well, which is called a “strain.” But, what is it that people refer to when they say, “…I slipped a disk in my neck!”?

The disks lay between the vertebrae in the front of the spine, and they are part of the primary support and shock absorbing system of our neck and back. There are 6 disks in the neck, 12 in the mid-back, and 5 in the low back for a total of 23. The disks in the lower back are big, like the vertebral bodies they sit between, and get progressively smaller as they go up the spine towards the head. When we bend our neck forwards, the disk compresses, and opens wider when we look up. It forms a wedge shape when we side bend left or right, and it twists when we rotate or turn the head.

These disc can over time get very worn and lead towards becoming "bulged" or "herniated" or "protruded" or "slipped", essentially all meaning the same thing. The jelly-like substance on the inside portion of the disc can leak out and compress spinal nerves and cause severe pain in the neck, back, down the arm or leg, referred to as sciatica. These are the conditions we specialize in treating with the use of NSSD or Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression.
NSSD, Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression is a highly effective, researched treatment proven successful by Johns Hopkins University, Stanford University and Mayo clinic among others. This gentle treatment slowly creates separation between the spinal vertebrae which takes the pressure off the intervertebral discs in the spine thus "decompressing" the compressed discs that are the actual cause of the pain in the first place.

"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.
