Our History

Founded in 1990, PNBC has treated over 140,000 patients and is different from other clinics that treat chronic spine pain. PNBC concentrates on improving strength and endurance and does not offer passive treatments such as manipulation, ultrasound, TENS, injection therapy, acupuncture, etc. While these treatments will often provide temporary relief, we along with many of the world's foremost authorities in spinal disease, believe that lasting improvement comes from spinal fitness. Our published researches support the effectiveness of this "sports medicine" approach and our physicians and physical therapists, guide this approach to obtain the best possible long term improvement.

There are other facilities that have tried to copy the PNBC treatment model.  Notice that those facilities often highlight published studies showing that surgery can be prevented or that superb outcomes have been obtained.  What they fail to tell you is that those studies were performed and published by PNBC. Getting a scientific article published in a peer reviewed medical journal is a difficult undertaking representing hundreds of hours of work and data collection. PNBC has taken the time to prove the superiority of its approach by publishing its outcomes and we invite all other facilities to do the same instead of implying that our outcomes are their own.  We have developed the protocols and proven their efficacy with over 140,000 patients.  No other facility comes close to this amount of experience.
