How does the Spine work?
Understanding how you got back pain, neck pain or slipped disc is necessary, but let’s go over some basic spine information. In other words, let’s see how the spine works. We have noticed that those with a better understanding of the spine tends to recover at a faster pace. Besides, having a better knowledge will help you identify those with poor knowledge and skills. In other words, we like to help you understand what is happening in your back so you can take better care of it. So, without further delay, let’s get started. How many bones are there in the spine? A human spine has 25 joints connecting with 33 individual bones and is basically, made up of 5 main segments:
- Cervical Spine: these vertebrae allows for neck motion and supports the skull
- Thoracic Spine: these spinal bones connect to the rib cage
- Lumbar Spine: the bones of the lumbar spine allows for mobility
- Sacrum: sacrum forms the foundation of the spine and is an attachment point for the iliac (pelvic bones)
- Coccyx: the smallest bones of spine functions as an attachment point for several muscles and ligaments.
What are the Functions of your spine?
- Bear our weight
- Protect the delicate nerves and spinal cord
- Allow for mobility
The base of the skull and the tailbone forms the opposing ends of the spine. The tailbone (sacrum) is a triangular bone that bears and distributes the weight onto the two pelvic bones. Discussions of the spine are incomplete without its supporting structure. In the spine, supporting structures enable the spine to perform the required tasks assigned. Hence, making the spine a unique and complex entity.
The following supporting structures define the function of the spine:
Together the three structures give support to the spine and allow it to work as designed. For the spine to perform at 100%, the supporting structures must also operate at 100%. However, our lifestyle has placed an exorbitant amount of stress on these specialized structures. These strains have led to laxity, weakness and even injury. As a result back pain, today has become a socioeconomic burden in the developed and developing countries. However, all this can change. When the function is interrupted, stresses placed can cause damage.
The most sensitive structure connected to your spine is the spinal disc. The spinal disc is a resilient structure. In fact, research has discovered it to be stronger that the vertebra.However, stresses placed on discs leads to a deficiency inflow of nutrients. So, with a decrease in the inward flow of nutrient: the disc starves. In other words, it gets damaged. If the nutritional requirements are not met, the spinal disc can herniate (slip disc or slipped disc) and rupture through.
A herniated/ruptured disc (slipped disc or slip disc) is a damaged spinal disc in which the fibers can pinch and irritate nerves; causing pain, weakness, and even paralysis. Unfortunately, few self-proclaimed experts are telling their patients that “there’s no such thing as slipped disc.” They are the unlearned and the poorly trained, so you should avoid them!
A slipped disc (layperson’s term for a herniated disc or protruded disc) is a condition diagnosed through an MRI.
Herniated discs are easily proven through imaging technology (MRI). Hence, it doesn’t make any difference when disbelieved by the uneducated few. To conclude, a slipped disc is a serious condition that needs appropriate care and attention. In our center, our clinical team takes pride in their skills, knowledge and know how. Our clinical team has reversed spinal disc conditions in numerous patients. Thousands with spondylosis, sciatica, neck pain and back pain have sought our help. We have proven the success of our methods through serial MRIs (pre and post therapy MRI). Our clinical teams succeed when others fail. Call us we can help.
NSD Therapy makes it easier to treat neck pain and back pain with an unprecedented level of success. So, if you suffer from neck pain or back pain, consider NSD Therapy before all else. However, as great as NSD Therapy is, prevention is better. An ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure. And when it comes to neck pain or back pain, it couldn’t be said better. Prevention is key to a healthy active life. So, in the subsequent section, we will go over what you can do to avoid neck pain and back pain in the first place.
PREVENT NECK PAIN AND BACK PAIN WITH BETTER POSTURE
What is a better posture? Your posture, good or bad, is a result of your lifestyle. In other words, your habits, pattern, and positions – the things you do every day that leads to muscle and ligament weakness.
Sitting is worst than SMOKING
The human body adapts to any environment. We are the most adaptable creatures on this planet. It is this adaptability that has led to so much neck and back problems today. If you look at your family, co-workers, and friends, you will notice differences in postures. Some have great postures, while most have poor postures. Sitting is said to be the number one reason why we have pain. Latest research from the United States of America is comparing the harmful effects of sitting to be as horrible as smoking. Therefore, we like to take this moment and remind everyone to limit sitting. Today, sitting is the new smoking.
Our modern lifestyles have us sitting all day long. This phenomenon of prolonged sitting started a few decades ago and had progressively worsened over time. Today, most of us sit all day long. We sit on the way to work, in our cars, at work, during breaks, on the way home. In essence, we sit from morning until bedtime! This cycle keeps repeating day-in-day-out! Those with jobs requiring sitting have a higher risk of back problems. So, if you sit at work, make sure not to sit toom much at home or when you are on your own time. Therefore, leading an active life is better for those that sit most of the day.
When did Sitting become a Problem?
Today, sitting is the new smoking. Our modern lifestyles have us sitting all day long. This phenomenon of prolonged sitting started a few decades ago, but it has progressively worsened over time. Today, most of us sit all day long. We sit on the way to work, in our cars, at work, during breaks, and on the way home. In essence, we sit from morning until bedtime! This cycle keeps repeating day-in-day-out! Those with jobs requiring sitting have a higher risk of back problems. So, if you sit at work, make sure not to sit too much at home or when you are on your own time. Therefore, leading an active life is better for those that sit most of the day.
By the time we hit our 30‘s, a majority of us have back pain.
Some have debilitating neck pain and back pain. The pain may become so dangerous that it leads to disability before their 45th birthday. Researchers in America have called BACK PAIN the leading cause of disability in those under the age of 45. Because of the increase in the number of neck pain and back pain cases we have deemed it necessary to highlit effective neck and back treatment options. Neck pain treatment and back pain treatment through NSD Therapy methods is better than any other form of care.
Our centers are not similar to others; we take the time to explain every aspect of an issue to our patients. Our goal is to get rid of your pain and keep it away. As much as we love our patients, we do not want to see them return time and again with the same complaint. Therefore, we will spend time here and with all patients to ensure that the activities you do are not harming you. NSD Therapy was launched to offer the best neck pain treatment and the best back pain treatment. NSD Therapy systems of care have enabled us to become the best treatment center for neck and back.
We have succeeded even with the severest form of back pain, including a slipped disc (slip disc). Sitting in poor postures can cause slipped disc. So, we plead with all to be mindful of their posture and to educate their family members on this important issue. Therefore, hear our plea and correct your posture before its too late!
Back pain, neck pain, and slipped disc is all too avoidable.
If you are one of the unlucky ones diagnosed with a slipped disc, we are here to help. We are Malaysia’s premiere neck and back pain treatment centers. Back pain is becoming more common among Malaysians, but it doesn’t have to be! We can help you recover from mild issues before they become a major health concern. The spinal disc is the most common cause of back pain today! A slipped disc is more common than you think! It starts when you were young, gradually worsening over time and it explodes with pain when you least expect it. The earlier we identify your problem, the easier it is to fix.
Fixing a slipped disc is not as easy as most think. It takes lots of efforts, knowledge, skills, and advanced technology. Before we talk about how and why NSD Therapy is your best option for a slipped disc, let’s go over the anatomy and function of your spinal disc.
Spinal Disc Anatomy
The disc is made up of three basic structures:
- Nucleus Pulposus
- Annulus Fibrosus
- Vertebral endplate
The Function of the Spinal Disc
As mentioned earlier the spinal disc’s function is to provide support and to allow for mobility. Two major molecular networks provide this mechanical function:
- Collagen Network: Formed mostly of collagen and makes up approximately 70% of the annulus and 20% of the nucleus. Gives the disc its strength and anchors it to the vertebral endplates.
- Aggrecan Network: A complex clusters of chondroitin, glucosamine ( a like ground substance needed for building and repair of cartilage) and proteoglycans (large protein molecules responsible for maintaining disc hydration.), which as a super sponge.
The simplest definition of Diurnal Changes is the fluctuation that occurs each day. Let’s break these words down for better understanding before we get to the nitty gritty of how your disc works. Diurnal mans “Daily” and I do believe we can skip the definition for changes. However, the words: “Diurnal Changes” takes on a distinct meaning when it relates to the spine. Diurnal changes of the spine specifically relate to the spinal discs. It refers to the daily changes occurring in a spinal disc. And these changes are that which causes a difference in a spinal disc’s height. In other words, the water content of the disc.
So, in this section, we will inform you on how a spinal disc obtains the fluids (nutrients) it needs. A thorough understanding of a spinal disc is necessary before repairs can be rendered. Many centers fail to realize this or have no idea how a spinal disc gets the nutrients it needs. Most noteworthy is how so many of the so-called professionals that treat spine disorder but yet, have failed to grasp this simple process. What is even more amazing is how they can stand in front their patient and attempt to convince them of their expertise in the field of spine and joint.
When you visit one our centers, you will be treated by an expert clinical team.
Particularly relevant is our clinical team’s ability to diagnose and render treatments that target your spine problems at its roots. Our teams of clinical Chiropractors in Malaysia has an in-depth understanding of how a spinal disc gets damaged. It is that knowledge that enables us to achieve results others can not. For example, our chiropractors have an in-depth understanding of the aggrecan molecule and how it impacts your spinal disc’s health. Aggrecans are specific molecules that give the spinal disc its tensile strength. An aggrecan attracts and holds water molecules. In fact, they can hold over 500 times their weight in water.
Their ability to maintain and attract large volumes of water is the reason why a spinal disc has a tremendous “hydrostatic pressure.” Published medical research has proven the Aggrecan molecule to be a super sponge. The Aggrecan‘s ability to hold and store fluids is so incredible that overnight a healthy spinal disc gets engorged with fluids. This has been clinically measured and studied for decades, and established scientific facts have linked this as the number one reason why we are measurably taller in the morning than at night. The phenomenon of “Diurnal Change” is ONLY present in the non-degenerated healthy spinal discs.
NSD Therapy was designed to mimic and induce this very process, and it is due to the induced imbibition that many have healed through NSD Therapy. Therefore, if you suffer from back or neck pain, visit us and start your NSD Therapy session today. NSD Therapy works because it increases blood flow and nutrient content to your damaged spinal disc.
Decreased Spinal Disc Nutrition Linked to Slipped Disc
Medical research has proven the intervertebral discs (spinal disc) to be the largest avascular structures in our body. An Avascular structure is one that has no direct blood supply. The vertebral end-plate along with all its associated structures and tissues provides the nutrient a spinal disc needs. A lack of the nutrients needed is the primary causative factor in a slipped disc.
The blood supplied nutrients to a spinal disc are brought in by the process of diffusion.
Spinal Disc Diffusion
The diffusion is the responsibility of the Aggrecan network. The Aggrecan network acts as super sponges and sucks the blood into the spinal disc. In an unhealthy spinal disc, this diffusion process is greatly diminished resulting in degenerative discs disease. Therefore, the number one reason for degenerative disc disease is a lack of blood supply and decreased nutrient availability. If your doctor does not address the cause of the degenerative disc disease, you may end up with a lifelong back pain of varying intensity. NSD Therapy’s goal is to help the spinal disc regenerate without surgery.
Treatments rendered with NSD Therapy are designed to increase the blood flow by assisting the process of diffusion. Our clinical teams influence the processes of diffusion through the RxDecom®. The RxDecom® is our therapeutic modality of choice for increasing blood flow to unhealthy or degenerated spinal discs
The Importance of Spinal Disc Degeneration
Spinal Disc Degeneration is the most common cause of back pain. If neglected it can lead to paralyzing neck or back pain. Research has demonstrated that spinal discs degenerate far earlier than do other musculoskeletal tissue. Findings of degeneration in the lumbar discs are seen as early as age group 11-16 years*. A recent published medical study related that 20% of kids between 9-11 years old have signs of disc degeneration. These are alarming statistics!
Dr. Yama Zafer (Doctor of Chiropractic) understood these problems. In his efforts to stabilize patients with neck and back pain, he discovered methods and systems of care that later were coined by him as NSD Therapy. BossN, Weissbach S, Rohrbach H, Weiler C, Spratt KF, Nerlich AG: Classification of age-related changes in lumbar intervertebral discs: 2002 Volvo Award in basic science. Spine 2002, 27:2631-2644
How is NSD Therapy administered?
NSD Therapy is a gentle and safe procedure.
NSD Therapy is a multifaceted, a multiprong system of non-operative spine care that targets neck pain and back pain with an unprecedented level of efficacy. Regardless of previous failures, you may have experienced at other centers; NSD Therapy can help. It is the safest and most effective form of spine care. So, rest assured that regardless of the type of procedure, all components of NSD Therapy are gentle, safe and free of discomfort or pain. You have nothing to lose, except the pain!
Proven Non-Surgical Slipped Disc Care
Researchers from all over the world agree that the most common cause of any spinal disc related malfunction is a disruption in the flow of nutrients to the avascular spinal disc.
This disruption has a cascading ill effect on the otherwise healthy spinal discs. Due to its location (deep within the spine), it has been nearly impossible to increase the flow of nutrients via traditional medical care. Well-that-is-until-now!
After years of research, our founder (Yama Zafer, D.C.) discovered unique methods and systems for those that suffered from severe neck or back pain as result of a slipped disc. Dr. Zafer (Doctor of Chiropractic) coined the term “NSD Therapy in 2009.
NSD Therapy has proven as an effective alternative to surgery for those in pain. Serial MRI films have shown the effectiveness of this sophisticated method of care. Serial MRIs are before and after therapy MRI examinations.
What are the Treatment Options for Neck or Back Pain?
In today‘s advanced society we have spent billions to cure a mechanical condition through chemical means. Harmful chemicals such as muscle relaxers, painkillers, anti-inflammatories, steroids and spinal injections. But, they have all failed. What is worse, it that for some these pills have created a host of illness that they would have suffered otherwise.
Important to note: Mechanical back pain has never killed anyone, but the cure has!!! Painkillers are not good at killing the pain. In fact, when it comes to a pinched nerve, a painkiller has little to no benefit. Therefore, instead of killing the pain, some painkillers have killed patients. In short, this insane and barbaric means of care needs to stop! Noteworthy point to mention: would they treat their families the same way they have treated their patients. Ironically not, as we have had many of them in our center.
In fact, our motto is to treat patients the same way would treat our parents, brothers, sisters and grandparents. We practice what we preach. And we treat each patient with utmost respect and with the best of our abilities. You can Bank On It!
Medications that were designed to help a patient have KILLED many!
Vioxx: The current estimates of the number of people killed outright by Vioxx ALONE is anywhere from 25,000 to 55,000. Based on Dr. David Graham’s studies, more than 61,000 people have died in the United States alone.
That‘s from just one of the drugs!
Surgery at the Mayo Clinic!
The following were once published statements are of the world renowned Mayo Clinic’s website:
- Surgery and other invasive procedures don‘t always work. Some people have good results; some show little change; some may even experience more pain.
- Procedures that block pain may not be permanent; you may need the procedure repeated.
- Spinal fusion removes some of the flexibility of your spine. This means re-learning how you move after surgery.
- Surgery involves recovery time, and it can have side effects; for example, some people experience later degeneration in the area adjacent to the spinal fusion surgery.
- Long-term outcomes are better with less invasive procedures and at less cost.
Since the dawn of time humanity has been in pursuit of the cure for neck and back pain. Many systems and inventions have come and gone. Some helpful while others made things worse. The best of these was traction. Crude forms of traction started some 2000 years ago by Persians and the Greeks. Over the years it has been modified and improved. However, the one thing that has stayed constant with traction is that they have failed to provide improvements for those that suffer from a slipped disc.
The modern day traction unit has provided some relief for certain types of spinal conditions. However, it is intolerable for individuals with acute and intense conditions. It is intolerable because the treatments given are through a general non-targeting pull. The pull takes seconds to perform through a sudden contraction of the spine via a single, or multiple stages pull. This sudden pull increases patient‘s physiological response (an uncontrollable subconscious activated protective tightening of muscles). Therefore, therapy rendered through a traction device is ineffective when it comes to neck and back issues resulting from degeneration or a slipped disc.
From a patient‘s standpoint, the pull is aggressive, raw and painful, leading to increasing muscular tension and eventual pain, the longer the therapy time, the more intense the physiological muscular response.
Additionally, it is hard to treat larger, obese patients who require more distractive tension. Practitioners are often reluctant to address patients with certain conditions such as bulging/herniated (slipped) discs, arthritis, and stenosis.
Each of us is unique, and each health condition is unique. These two facts could not be any truer as when it comes to the neck and back. This simple fact has been known for more than a millennium and yet ignored. Even if the doctor/therapist takes these facts into consideration, the modern day traction unit‘s inabilities and limitations prevent them from doing so.
What do the patients want?
Today‘s informed patient is more aware of trends and technology. For example, pain prescriptions are turned down. Consequently, they want more than an efficient alternative to drugs and surgery. Seems like, most wants change in how some hospitals or clinics are treating them. Most of all, today’s patient has unlimited access to information. As such, they have started to question the need for spine surgery. As a result, many are seeking non-surgical alternatives to painkiller or surgery.
Most noteworthy is that patients are now more aware of effective non-surgical options than their surgeons. Or is it that the doctors are aware, but yet too proud to refer out to a non-surgical environment. Of course, unless it is them that suffers or one of their family members. Ironically, we have treated a few such cases.
NSD Therapy system of neck and back treatments were launched to meet the needs of patients that want more than just symptom relief. Now, patients can have access to corrective care that fixes the problem at its roots. Chiropractic Specialty Center in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia was the First in Asia to have offered NSD Therapy. Our success in spine and joint has dramatically increased as a result of NSD Therapy systems.
Time For Change
With the rise in the socioeconomic burdens of back pain, failed surgeries and killer medications, society is asking for a change.
- The doctors want to change
- The Therapists need to better methods and systems
- Our economy needs it to change
- The patients are demanding a change for the better
New & Innovative Trend
True Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression therapy is the latest and most advanced form of non-surgical, non-invasive spinal treatment systems. Research from North America, Europe, and Asia cite and recommend the use of non-surgical spinal decompression therapy. Conditions such as degenerated discs, bulging discs, herniated disc, sciatica and posterior facet syndrome can benefit greatly from NSD Therapy. Research indicates an up to 86% success rate with decompression therapy. However, based on our review, NSD Therapy as performed by our team has a much higher success rate.
Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy better known as the NSD Therapy has a success rate of up to 95%.
Our methods and systems are unique and proprietary. We utilize specialized manual procedures along with specific Chiropractic Adjustments rendered through the best methods of Chiropractic Treatments that others do not do. The combination of these, coupled with the treatments we render using RxDecom®, Spinercise®, FD-300™ and other therapeutic devices are the reasons why our patients recover when we treat them. So, call us and experience the best neck pain treatment and back pain treatment in town.
According to medical research, advanced forms of decompression therapy creates an intermittent spinal disc separation of up to 7mm: a needed component for restoring hydration, retraction, and health of a damaged spinal disc. NSD Therapy accomplishes spinal disc separation (decompression) through the RxDecom.
NSD Therapy is not a single method of care; it is a multifaceted treatment program rendered by clinical physiotherapists and specialized chiropractors. Hence, it offers best of all worlds, Chiropractic, Physiotherapy, Retaliation, and Advanced Spinal Decompression. As a result, it is successful when surgery, medication or other forms of care fails. So, why are you living with the pain? Especially, when you can have NSD Therapy. For a center to offer NSD Therapy, they must have specialized training, skills, and advanced therapeutic devices. The most Important of the devices is the RxDecom®.
According to a published research:
Eighty-six percent of ruptured intervertebral disc (RID) patients achieved ‘good’ (50-89% improvement) to ‘excellent’ (90-100% improvement) results with decompression. Sciatica and back pain were relieved. Of the facet arthrosis patients, 75% obtained ‘good’ to ‘excellent’ results with decompression.

Another researcher published the following:
Serial MRI of 20 patients treated with the decompression table shows in our study up to 90% reduction of subligamentous nucleus herniation in 10 of 14. Some rehydration occurs detected by T2 and proton density signal increases. Torn annulus repair is seen in all.

Advantage Non-Surgical Decompression Treatments known as NSD Therapy is the world‘s most holistic system and method of spine care. It is the best neck pain treatment in Malaysia. And if you happen to suffer from back pain, rest assured that NSD therapy could heal your back as well. NSD Therapy offers the best back pain treatment.
Clinical Physiotherapists administer NSD Therapy through highly specialized and sophisticated therapy devices. RxDecom is the ONLY spinal decompression therapy device that meets the requirements for NSD Therapy. The RxDecom has revolutionary software and unique robotic capabilities that make it ideal for those that suffer from Slipped Discs. Spinal decompression therapy as rendered through NSD Therapy (RxDecom) is a safe, gentle and an effective alternative to any invasive or surgical procedure. Most noteworthy, it can help repair damage to your spinal disc even if nothing else has worked.
NSD Therapy was designed to produce a series of closed-loop monitored decompressive therapeutic waveforms that rehabilitate the spine; leading to repair, reversal of disc herniations (slipped disc), improved spinal health and proper juxtaposition of all soft tissues, bones, and spinal discs. Therefore, it is the ultimate and most advanced method of therapy for a spinal disc. In short, nothing is as good as NSD Therapy. So, why are you wasting time: start your NSD Therapy session today.
Why was this not done sooner!
Plainly put, it was not possible. Computer technology was not advanced enough to perform such tasks 20 years ago. Dr. Allan E Dyer, Former Deputy Minster of Health in Ontario, Canada through the College of Physicians and Surgeons published research that led to the development of Decompression Therapy. His works started soon after a failed back surgery in the mid-1980s. It was through modern scientific advancements in medicine and IT that made decompression therapy possible. This form of therapy was not possible to even conceive before the 1980s.
As a result of these technological advancements, RxDecom® is the most advanced form of decompression therapy in the world using the best and the latest technological advances of the new century.
The Spinal Disc
The vertebral discs can be described as soft yet tough pads that separate the bones of the spine (vertebrae) from one another. These highly specialized structures act as shock absorber, a ligament by holding the vertebrae of the spine together, and as a pivotal point allowing motion. NSD Therapy is the ONLY non-surgical method of care that requires combined clinical efforts from a team of Chiropractors and Physiotherapists.
Annular fibers are tightly bound and not in contact with the spinal nerve of the spinal cord. The spinal disc is thick, indicative of proper spinal disc hydration and nutrition.
Bulging DiscThe annular fibers have expanded and slightly loosened from one another, resulting in a swelling of the annular fibers towards the spinal nerves and spinal cord.
Spinal discs do not herniate as quickly as most assume. Some degenerative changes are necessary before it herniates. A herniated disc whose annular fibers have torn allows the nucleus to migrate.
Degenerated DiscA degenerated disc is a dehydrated spinal disc that has lost proper nutrient flow. They are thinner and significantly weaker than the healthy spinal disc.
Healing a Degenerated Spinal Disc with NSD Therapy
According to an article published by Drs. Urban & Roberts: “About 20% of people in their teens have spinal discs with mild signs of degeneration; degeneration increases steeply with age, particularly in males, so that around 10% of 50 years old spinal discs and 60% of 70 years old spinal discs have SEVERELY DEGENERATED SPINAL DISC (Degenerative Disc Disease)! NSD Therapy was created to heal and repair degenerated spinal discs, herniated discs, bulging discs, protruded and prolapsed discs (Forms of Slipped Disc) without surgery, injection or medication.
Spinal Disc Degeneration is the Number One reason why patients get a “Slipped Disc.” This is why our chiropractors and physiotherapists look to identify the root-cause of your back or neck pain. Unlike other centers, we take the time and study your condition before recommending any form of care. Our centers will ONLY accept your case when we are relatively certain that WE CAN HELP. Therefore, you have nothing to lose. We have a very high success rate when it comes to neck pain, back pain, sciatica, spondylosis and slipped disc. Thus, we can help, even if others have failed. What makes us unique and different is our focused care.
The focused care you get in one of our centers is the result of years of research. You can not get focused care unless your therapist or doctor understands the theories, principals, and modes of damage along with a firm understanding of treatment methods that are backed with advanced technology. These are the hallmarks of care you get in our center. You can count on it.
NSD Therapy Effects of Disc Degeneration
Far too many patients are misdiagnosed with muscle tension or muscle spasms. These injustices occur in chiropractic, medicine and physiotherapy centers, clinics and even hospital all over the world. Muscles have become the scapegoats for many that have limited knowledge. Muscles can cause imbalances, which ultimately leads to increased stress and an eventual slippage of discs, spondylosis, sciatica, neck pain and back pain. But muscles are rarely a cause of recurring neck or back pain.
So, if you suffer from a pain that reoccurs time and again, the chances are that it is more than just a muscle involvement. We take it on to ourselves to provide our chiropractors and physiotherapists with rigorous training and continuing educational programs to ensure that they have the latest information about spine, joint and sports injuries.
To hone their skills and sharpen their knowledge, each Chiropractic Specialty Center is required to provide their staff with continuous training that improves the skills they have mastered in addition to obtaining knowledge that is recent.
One area the we spend lots of time is the “Spinal Discs” and the “Effects of a Degenerated Spinal Disc”
Our founding Chiropractor (Dr. Yama Zafer) has made it mandatory for all our technical staff to be well informed when it comes to the SPINE. His understanding of spinal discs has led to improvements in methods of care we render. Research has shown us that spinal disc degeneration is the leading cause of debilitating neck or back pain. In fact, according to the most recently published studies, a spinal disc cannot herniate (slip) unless there are some degenerative processes present already within the disc. A degenerated disc is an unhealthy disc, which requires care. If disc degeneration is neglected, it will lead to disc protrusion/disc prolapse aka “SLIPPED DISC.”
Why do our chiropractors spend so much energy on a degenerated disc?
We focus on spinal discs and disc degeneration because they can have a cascading effect. Spinal disc degeneration is associated with sciatica, spondylosis and slipped disc. In fact, medical research has established disc degeneration a root-cause for herniated disc, sciatica, spinal stenosis, spondylosis and slipped disc. When loaded; a degenerated disc (spinal disc) loses height and fluid more rapidly causing increased stress on joints, which can lead to pain. The posterior (rear most) portions of the spinal disc will also lose height, leading to discogenic (spinal disc caused) pain.
The long-term effects of spinal disc degeneration can have a far reaching implication. Below we have included a brief list:
- Neck Pain
- Back Pain
- Thickening of the ligamentum flavum
- Disc bulge
- Disc herniation, “SLIPPED DISC.”
- Weakness, numbness, tingling or even paralysis in one or both extremities.
Ligamentum Flavum (aka the Yellow Ligament) is a strong ligament that runs bone to bone from the 2nd cervical vertebrae (possibly C1) to the tailbone interconnecting each segment of the spine to one below and the one above. Its location is of utmost importance since it is in the back portion of the spinal canal. The average thickness of this ligament in a healthy adult is 2.5-4.5mm. A thickness of 7mm or above is considered a hypertrophy (thickened).
Thickening of Ligamentum Flavum and NSD Therapy
The proper medical term is Hypertrophy of Ligamentum Flavum. Hypertrophy (overgrowth, thickening) can act as a mass that compresses the spinal cord producing back pain and even sciatic-like symptoms (when this thickening occurs in the lower back). It can happen at any age, but most often is seen in the middle-aged and elderly. If neglected it can thicken and produce unrelenting back pain. Hypertrophy of ligamentum flavum is the as result of injury and degenerative disc disease. Unfortunately, many chiropractors or physiotherapist are not familiar with the effects of a thickened Ligamentum flavum.
In our centers, we take it onto ourselves to educate and train each of our chiropractors and physiotherapists so that they can offer a holistic approach for back or neck pain patients. This is why our success rate is in the upper 95 percentile, even for those that have severe slipped discs. NSD Therapy is rendered through the expert and clinical efforts of our chiropractors and physiotherapists. The methods and systems of NSD Therapy are made possible through advanced technology: the RxDecom. NSD Therapy is our specialized method of spine care specific for a slipped disc, degenerated spinal disc and thickening of Ligamentum Flavum (hypertrophy of Ligamentum Flavum).
The only method of spine care that can fix and repair a slipped disc is NSD Therapy. If you have a slipped disc, do not opt for surgery. NSD Therapy is proven helpful even with the severest of slipped disc cases.
Disc Bulge and NSD Therapy
A disc bulge is a common condition that results when a spinal disc is damaged. Unfortunately, many doctors and therapists have this mistaken notion of thinking that a disc bulge is normal or expected. The one thing that we want everyone out there to know is that any issue or problem within a spinal disc is not normal and of course that includes spinal disc degenerations and disc bulge. Once a spinal disc degenerates it will buckle out. It buckles out because the fibers of the spinal disc lack the nutrients and the strength to hold firm under load.
Neglected or poorly treated spinal disc bulge will progress to a more serious condition: a Herniated or Protruded spinal disc. The layperson’s term for a herniated spinal disc is a “SLIPPED DISC.” A spinal disc that bulges is an unhealthy disc and treatments are needed before it progress and becomes a full-blown slipped disc. This is the main reason why the chiropractors and physiotherapists of Chiropractic Specialty Centers take time studying your MRI films to see the major and the minor signs of disc damage. We are Malaysia’s best non-surgical teams that offer effective holistic non-surgical care for spinal discs. In fact, none can come close to the successes we have achieved.
Prevalence of Lumbar Disc Bulge
A bulging disc is a common finding in almost all serious cases of back or neck pain. Once identified it must be treated. Neglect can easily lead to further damage. A pilot study of the prevalence of lumbar disc degeneration in elite athletes with lower back pain at the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games:
- 58% were found to have an element of disc displacement, most of which were disc bulges.
So, disc bulges are extremely common. As common as they are, it ONLY occurs when there are some levels of Disc Degeneration. NSD Therapy is the NON-OPERATIVE spine therapy that can fix a disc without surgery. Call a Chiropractic Specialty Center now and learn about the non-surgical option your surgeon doesn’t want you to know.
NSD Therapy and Herniated Disc AKA “SLIPPED DISC.”
Slipped disc, better known by its medical terms: bulging disc, herniated disc, protruded disc, prolapsed disc, extruded disc, is treatable non-surgically. Don’t let others pressure you towards a surgical intervention. Surgery should be your last option and as such should be performed when you have exhausted all effective means of non-surgical avenues. For the non-surgical treatments to work, they must be targeted and comprehensive. Getting therapy from a surgical center is not always the best option. There are many centers clinics and even hospitals who lack the skills, knowledge, technology and clinical non-surgical staff to offer effective non-surgical solutions.
We are the BEST Non-Surgical Slipped Disc Treatment Center in Malaysia
Surgical centers often concentrate on improving surgical procedures and rarely improve or implement non-surgical interventions. So, the next time your surgeon recommends physiotherapy or non-surgical treatments at their hospital, you may want to reconsider! For one thing, hospitals do not have Chiropractors on staff. Another key point is that the physiotherapists in a hospital setting are more like the “jack of all trades,” rather that one who specializes in the non-surgical slipped disc treatments. Also, hospitals lack non-surgical therapy systems such as the RxDecom. Instead of offering treatments of Advanced Spinal Decompression technologies, they utilize spinal traction. Traction has failed to produce results for slipped disc.

Most Common Age for Herniated Disc – According to Mayo Clinic

Necessity is the Mother of all Inventions

Neck and back pain were a horrific disorder that often led to paralysis and disability in otherwise young healthy adults. For decades; slipped disc, spondylosis, and sciatica patient told that a non-operative solution is impossible. In 2009, NSD Therapy proved them wrong.

Dr. Yama Zafer
Dr. Yama Zafer (Doctor of Chiropractic) is the founder of NSD Therapy. Yama Zafer, known to his patients as “Dr. Yama” is an American Chiropractor. His quest for a better alternative to back surgery started in 1987 when he was rendered immobile as result of an injury. His doctors and surgeons recommended surgery. Having not liked the option he obtained care from a chiropractor.
After completing his chiropractic education at Cleveland Chiropractic University in his hometown of Kansas City (USA), he opened several clinics there and practiced there for ten years. During those years he researched and developed what would become the NSD Therapy method of spinal care in 2009.
Like the Developer of Chiropractic, Dr. B.J. Palmer, before him, Dr. Yama knew that the body could heal faster and better with the use of technology. The problem was, all existing technology seemed to have design flaws:
- Traction machines that had no awareness of the changing needs of the patient
- Distraction tables that would treat the low back but do damage to the neck, just to name two significant problems
In 2006, Dr. Yama moved to Malaysia because of its favorable climate for manufacturing and because of its great selection of things to eat. He started TheraMod™ and perfected the RxDecom®, the FD-3000 and the Spinercise® spinal rehabilitation device.
The results were immediate and amazing attracting the attention of top spinal surgeons, hospitals, sports treatment centers and the media.
Patients cured of their problems without surgery wanted to open their centers to help others, and so the Chiropractic Specialty Center™ franchise was born. Expert Chiropractic, Clinical Physiotherapy and unique, cutting edge technology combined with a design made by Dr. Yama bringing health to Malaysia, Asia, and the world.
