Dr. Nelson is a physiatrist who specializes in the care of patients with spinal conditions. The SpineCare Program is a transdisciplinary program consisting of rehabilitation professionals, physiatrists, neurologists, spine surgeons, chiropractors and spine interventionalists.

I enjoy working with patients in a transdisciplinary clinic setting, incorporating medical treatment, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and chiropractic care as treatment options to maximize recovery from spine and musculoskeletal disorders.
