"Is it a Disc?"   "Do I Need Surgery?"   "The MRI says...."

Research: "The medical model has failed in relieving chronic low back pain, suffering and disability (pain killers, bed rest, surgery)... the focus is now on restoring function."

Restoring function is Nevada Spine Institute's primary goal.


"I had not been able to work since February, 1996 because of the pain in my lower back which was also affecting my left leg by making it extremely weak, even to the point of collapsing without any notice...."

-Charles M. Stubbens

Research: "97% of back pain is mechanical in origin*... most patients don't have disc problems but the diagnosis is notorious because imaging studies dramatically overestimate the frequency..."

*Mechanical in origin means that there is a structural misalignment.

Nevada Spine Institute specializes in treating structural misalignments non-intrusively.

"I was using a walker and had been told by two neurologists and one neurosurgeon that I could not expect to get any better and probably would be in a wheelchair the rest of my life…"

-Charles M. Stubbens



Research: In only 15% of low back pain cases is a definitive medical diagnosis reached... surgery has been found to be helpful in only 1 out of 100 Low Back Pain cases...2 years after Lumbar Surgery, 68% of patients are disabled, they reported the back pain was worse, or that overall quality of life had diminished.

The Nevada Spine Institute, since 1992, has used NUCCA, a gentle, all-natural, pain relief treatment to help thousands of patients from 48 states and 20 countries get relief from Low Back Pain among many other health conditions.

NUCCA is:
-evidence based
-supported by published medical research
-has been featured prominently on national television
programs, such as "Today" and "Montel"
-boasts one of the highest levels of patient satisfaction in
healthcare today


The NUCCA Chiropractic Approach involves a gentle, subtle, precise movement of the 1st vertebra in the neck, the C1. This movement realigns the spine, balances the spinal column and the entire body and relieves stress on the brain stem, the fuse box of your body, thus allowing the body to resolve pain and better address health issues. Over two-thousand years ago, Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, stated: "Look to the spine for the cause of disease." In modern times, the NUCCA chiropractic approach does just that.

Dr. Robert Goodman, D.C. of Nevada Spine Institute invites you to reclaim your life from low back pain.

Second only to the common cold as the cause of lost days at work, Low Back Pain is also one of the most common reasons for doctor's office and hospital emergency room visits. Doctors will usually refer to back pain as being "acute" if it has been present for less than a month and "chronic" if it lasts for a longer period of time.

According to the British Medical Journal (April 1993) 373 patients with acute low back pain were followed for 10 years. In 90%, the pain returned. 70% had 3 or more occurrences. And according to the Journal of Manipulative Therapy (1995), 2/3's of people with acute low back pain can be expected to have some symptom every year.

Hundreds of Nevada Spine Institute’s patients have experienced relief from Low Back Pain because NUCCA addresses the cause of the pain by realigning the body to it’s original symmetry and allowing it’s weight to distribute equally.
