Dr. Nelson began
his medical career as a 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.
