Dr. Nelson began
his medical career as an orthopedic surgeon, but after several
years, decided to concentrate on the treatment of chronic spinal
pathology using a fitness approach to treat thousands of patients.
As a founder and board member of Physicians Neck and Back Clinics (PNBC),
he has lectured around the world, conducted several research
studies, and published several articles in peer-reviewed medical
journals. These published
outcomes studies support the effectiveness of this "sports
medicine" approach and suggest it is generally the best
therapeutic modality for long term improvement of chronic disorders
of the spine.
