Donald P Nebel Jr. DC, CCST, DAAMLP

Doctor of Chiropractic

Certified Chiropractic Spinal Trauma

Diplomate American Academy of Medical Legal Professionals

At the Accident and Injury Center, we treat many difficult cases that have not responded previously to treatment. We have been able to do so by maintaining our knowledge of the latest research and techniques in the field and by completing post graduate studies in chiropractic, case management, radiology, whiplash injuries, neurology, and acupressure. In our modern and friendly facility, we provide pain relief and post-traumatic spinal care available in an atmosphere that is both professional and educational.

It is our premise, at the Accident and Injury Center, that unless a patient’s spine is restored to its optimum and correctly-aligned position, long term results cannot be achieved. For this reason, the treatment procedures we use allow for this necessary spinal correction, not only resulting in pain relief to the patient but also providing the opportunity for long-term corrective results. This approach minimizes the chance of spinal and/or nerve problems returning.

In 1989, Donald P. Nebel Jr. DC, CCST, DAAMLP graduated from the prestigious Life Chiropractic College with a Doctor of Chiropractic degree. Since that time he has dedicated his life to relieving all types of neck pain, back pain, and headaches. He has continued his education with certification in spinal trauma (120 hour program) and additional training sponsored by most of the major chiropractic colleges. Recently, Dr. Nebel was awarded Diplomate status through the American Academy of Medical Legal Professionals. Presently, he is the only doctor in the Pittsburgh area with this Diplomate status.
