Is The NDS Method Right For You?

Our doctors and staff have been inundated with questions from both physicians and patients as to which cases the NDS method will best help. Obviously proper patient selection is essential for favorable outcomes. We will not treat patients we do not believe will benefit from this therapy. Below is a list of conditions the NDS method is known to help.

Disc Bulge

A medical condition affecting the spine, in which a slight outpouching of the disc is apparent without any significant herniation. The bulge in some cases can apply pressure to a nerve(s) causing back pain.

Disc Herniation

A medical condition affecting the spine, in which a tear in the outer fibrous ring of an intervertebral disc allows the soft, central portion to bulge out. In most cases pressure is applied to nerve(s) causing chronic back pain.


A symptom including pain that may be caused by general compression and/or irritation of one of five nerve roots that give rise to the sciatic nerve, or by compression or irritation of the sciatic nerve itself. The pain is felt in the lower back, buttock, and/or various parts of the leg and foot.

Spinal Stenosis

A condition wherein the spinal canal (the spaces through which the spinal cord runs) narrows and compresses the spinal cord, cauda equina, and/or sciatic nerve roots..

Degenerative Disc Disease

Any condition where the spinal discs are degenerating or degrading, often causing severe back pain.

Back Pain Facts

One-half of all working Americans admit to having back pain each year.

Back pain is one of the most common reasons for missed work. In fact, back pain is the second most common reason for visits to the doctor’s office, outnumbered only by upper-respiratory infections.

Most cases of back pain are mechanical or non-organic - meaning they are not caused by serious conditions, such as inflammatory arthritis, infection, fracture or cancer.

Americans spend at least $50 billion each year on back pain and that’s just for the more easily identified costs.

Experts estimate that as many as 80% of the population will experience a back problem at some time in our lives.

Question & Answer

  • Are there any side effects to the treatment?
    Most patients do not experience any side effects. Though, there have been some mild cases of muscle spasm for a short period of time.

  • Is there any risk to the patient during treatment?
    NO. the NDS method is totally safe and comfortable for all subjects. The system has emergency stop switches for both the patient and the operator. These switches (a requirement of the FDA) terminate the treatment immediately thereby avoiding any injuries.

  • My doctor said there is nothing more he can do for me and I just have to live with my pain. Could the NDS method help me?
    Every day new technologies are being developed to treat many health conditions and injuries. Years ago, knee surgery required the patient to be in a cast for months. Today the patient walks out the door right after surgery. Now, with the the NDS method, we are able to repair injured discs without the risks associated with surgical procedures.

  • Can I continue to work while I undergo treatment?
    You are allowed to perform regular daily activities providing they do not aggravate your existing condition. Repetitive forward bending, lifting, twisting, housecleaning and sitting for extended periods are to be avoided. If your job requires physical or repetitive activities, you should consider taking some time off work. Remember, surgery requires you to avoid physical activities for months and you are usually unable to work for weeks.
