Dr. Ron Nusbaum D.C., B.Sc.


Spinal Decompression Toronto. I have treated patients many thousands of times which enables me to answer questions about which conditions are most successfully treated by Spinal Decompression. I can answer any questions regarding the science and methodology of how Spinal Decompression works. I can speak about who is and who is not a good candidate for Spinal Decompression, and I can speak about alternative treatments for severe, chronic back pain and neck pain. I can also speak about the various conditions which respond to spinal decompression care as well as which conditions should not receive this care I cannot make specific diagnoses or specific treatment recommendations for a patient without first conducting a consultation and examination with them. There are general protocol guidelines that I can share. I cannot recommend any individual to make changes to their medications or current medical care (prescribed by another doctor). I cannot make specific comments about another doctor.

Experience in the area

Spinal Decompression Therapy Toronto. Patient care has inspired me to advance my knowledge and expertise. I am a Doctor of Chiropractic, treating back pain and neck pain since 1989. I am the founder and CEO of Back Clinics of Canada www.backclinicsofcanada.ca. I've been performing Spinal Decompression for several years, and have performed Spinal Decompression several thousand times.

What do you like about this subject?

I am fascinated about spinal decompression because of its unparalleled success and specifically because it is non-surgical in design and delivers maximum healing in a relatively short amount of time.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

I hope to continue to advance my expertise and knowledge base in Spinal Decompression and other emerging technoliges which show promise in the treatment of serious back and neck pain.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

Many patients who have had surgery for low back pain, and are still living with pain, may also be candidates for this care.
