A Message from the Director
NLC Nonaka Lumbago Clinic offers medical treatment with a combined focus on the spinal conditions that cause low back pain.
By introducing advanced treatments from all over the world, we are able to expand the treatment options for patients suffering from back and other spinal diseases, and propose treatment solutions tailored to their symptoms and conditions.
Staying focused on diseases such as disc degeneration and disc herniation that cause spinal canal stenosis and back pain, we provide treatments that are less burdensome for elderly patients, for patients considering reoperation, and those seeking to return to society in a short period of time.

About our clinic's back pain treatment
Our clinic provides minimally invasive outpatient treatment options for various spinal disorders such as spinal canal stenosis, disc herniation etc., as an alternative to conventional surgical operations.
We offer only the safest intervertebral disc treatment methods available in Europe and the USA that have medical evidence and proven efficacy reported by the academic societies*. It took us two years and a lot of hard work to bring in the latest treatment methods used overseas, and we are confident that patients from Japan and other Asian countries will be satisfied by the outcome of the treatment at our clinic.
There are five treatment methods that we provide. You can find some useful information about these minimally invasive methods including their history, unique characteristics, indications, and brief comparisons with some conventional surgical methods listed below.
