What is NSD Therapy
Neck and back pain are the most common health disorders in the world today. Back pain is the leading cause of disability in those under the age of 45 while neck pain is spreading like a wildfire. Our modern lifestyle is impacting our health more than it ever did. The prolonged sitting (home, work & car) coupled with the poor head and neck postures we get into while texting is the leading cause of neck pain and back pain. Neck and back pain today are the crippling conditions affecting the young and old alike. Neck and back pain has many caused, but the pain resulting from a herniated or protruded spinal disc (Slipped disc or Slip Disc) is on the rise. Today, Herniated, protruded or prolapsed disc (Slip Disc or Slipped Disc) is at epidemic levels in which there is no immunity. Many procedures have come and gone, some helpful while others made things worse. The vast majority of treatments have neglected and often ignored the fact the human spine is a complex entity comprised of ligaments, muscles, discs and joints. Hence, their approach often failed to produce long lasting relief for those in pain. Due to the failures, some had to resort to invasive surgical procedures requiring cutting and throwing away important body parts on more than one occasion. The traditional physiotherapy and chiropractic treatments rendered for those with a slipped disc have proven ineffective.
As a result, the surgeons in most hospitals are busy performing surgical interventions on patients with disc herniations and protrusions (slipped disc or Slip Disc) It is clear that the current forms of invasive and non-invasive treatments have failed to provide long-term relief for those suffering from neck and back pain. It is time for a change. The doctors want it. The therapists need it, and the patients are demanding it. It was this need for change that ignited the passion of an expert team of doctors who understood the needs of patients and the shortfalls of current treatments. They related that degenerated discs, bulging discs, herniated discs, sciatica and posterior facet syndrome were dangerous conditions, taking months and even years to develop. According to this expert team of doctors, correcting such long-standing conditions require expert knowledge along with a state-of-the-art facility properly equipped for the task. Through years of research, they provided practical step-by-step recommendations and guidelines for proper examinations, evaluations, and therapeutic procedures. These step-by-step protocols are all incorporated into our non-surgical decompression therapy procedures better known as the NSD Therapy®. NSD Therapy® was specially created to assist physicians and healthcare providers in the non-surgical treatments of the spine. It includes evaluation, diagnostic and therapeutic procedures specific for the treatment of the neck and back. As a result, NSD Therapy® is the most comprehensive therapeutic protocol in the world today. NSD Therapy® is only available through certified NSD Therapy® centers. It consists of a combination of manual and physiotherapeutic modalities, specific to individual patient conditions and diagnoses. NSD Therapy™ is not a single form of therapy, but rather a series of specific treatments given to stabilize the spine as a whole through the following “five-prong approach”:
1. Spinal Muscles:
Making sure that the spinal muscles are free of damage (adhesions and scar tissue) and of proper strength. If muscle damage or weakness is detected, then a series of therapies, both manual and through physiotherapeutic devices, are delivered to bring about positive changes. Also, a specific strengthening program is prepared for each patient for his or her condition.
2. Spinal Ligaments:
NSD Therapy® considers ligament health through specific procedures geared towards repairing and strengthening. Similar to muscles, specific manual, physiotherapeutic and strengthening programs are prepared based on patient condition and needs.
3. Spinal Discs:
Spinal discs are one of the most complex and most important anatomical structures in the human body. Today, the vast majority of spinal disorders are associated with disc malfunctions. Therefore, treatment of the spinal disc is at the heart of the NSD Therapy®. The goal is on rejuvenation, repairing, stabilizing, strengthening and maintenance.

With NSD Therapy®, spinal joint alignments are carefully checked and stabilized. When spinal joint misalignments are detected, a collaborative team of chiropractors and physiotherapists will provide specialized care to improve joint alignment
