Treatments For Sciatica In San Diego CA

When looking and weighing out your options for treatments for sciatica in San Diego CA there are many choices and different types of treatments to consider. It depends on if you are trying to just get pain relief only or if you are interested in fixing the cause of your pain as well as achieving pain relief. Also to consider, do you want to utilize drugs, injections or surgery or use an alternative to these options. Here is one way to look at it.
1. Decide - do I want to avoid pain medications, injections or surgery or am I ok with those options and side effects?
2. Am I looking for only pain relief or both pain relief and fixing the reason my pain is present?
3. Is this issue very important to me to resolve or am I ok to continue living and feeling this way?
Answer those 3 questions to start and then you will have a better idea of which path to take. If you are ok with drugs, injections or surgery, then just cla your family medical doctor and they will guide you through those choices. If you want to avoid those options, then you may want to consider an alternative.
If you are only looking for pain relief then you can try acupuncture, massage, physical therapy, cupping, chiropractic adjustments and see if this gets you some relief.
If you are wanting to fix the reason the pain is present, you may want to consider NSSD or Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression. The reason is that sciatica is well known to be caused from disc compression pushing onto the sciatica nerves causing the painful, burning stabbing, throbbing back, butt and leg pain that can occur. Therefore if the cause is compression of the disc, then it makes sense to resolve the issue and keep the pain away. We would want to "decompress" the discs that are responsible for the pain.
This is why for the past 1 6years we have been specializing in Spinal Decompression and have performed over 26,000 treatments. Researched and proven highly effective by Johns Hopkins University, Stanford University and Mayo clinic among others. NSSD or Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression is a gentle and comfortable treatment that works very well.
NSSD or Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression is a relaxing, computer-aided treatment that helps patients get pain relief. it works by gently distracting the spinal vertebrae apart in a controlled manner and it is not painful when this is done. This then allows the pressure to come off the spinal discs that are pushing upon the nerve is responsible for the pain. During the treatment the spinal disc is then able to once again get water, oxygen and nutrients such as glucose to help heal the disc. Once the treatments yield substantial pain relief then we start the spinal stabilization process where we strengthen the spinal muscle to prevent a recurrence of the compression of the spinal discs once again.

"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.
