Dr. Yama has spent the last 20 years researching and implementing clinical and therapeutic procedures that enhance Chiropractic care as well as Physiotherapy treatments. His unyielding commitment to excellence in Chiropractic Care led to the development of NSD Therapy. Dr. Yama is the founder and developer of NSD Therapy®. In addition to NSD Therapy®, he is the inventor of the RxDecom®, Spinercise® and FD-3000 (a flexion/distraction modality).
Dr. Yama is an avid researcher with a particular interest in spine, joint and sports injuries.
He was motivated to become a Doctor of Chiropractic by his personal battle with intense back pain. He was a Pre-Med student when a work-related accident sent him to the hospital with debilitating lower back pain. There, the doctor recommended surgery. Not liking that option, he decided to research other, more non-invasive ways, in getting back to a more healthy life. In that investigation, he found chiropractic care. After completing his chiropractic care, he enrolled at the Cleveland Chiropractic University of Kansas City.
Dr. Yama graduated from Cleveland University in Kansas City in 1996. For the first 11 years, he was the clinic director of Zafer Chiropractic Health Clinic; a clinic that specialized in treatments of difficult and challenging cases. His skills and knowledge were the reason why many chiropractors, family physicians, orthopedic surgeons, and neurosurgeons referred patients to him.
His graduate, post graduate and continuing education studies include nutritional counseling, women‘s nutrition, sports injuries, acupuncture Chiropractic care and Physiotherapy treatments. Additionally, he has extensive training, research, and experience in the diagnosis and chiropractic treatment of spinal and mechanical disorders such as neck pain, back pain, disc disorders, knee injuries, shoulder injuries, foot problems, headaches, and migraines. He enjoys public speaking and has been invited to lecture throughout his hometown (Kansas City, USA) as well as the Klang Valley. Dr. Yama has conducted classes and training sessions for Chiropractors and Physiotherapists alike; Advocating Excellence in Chiropractic and Physiotherapy through Research.
Dr. Yama desires to make every aspect of chiropractic treatment more efficient. He has developed new procedures and revised several existing procedures to improve clinical outcomes. Dr. Yama moved to Malaysia in September 2006, to fulfill a lifelong goal of manufacturing new and innovative modalities for his profession. He lives in Klang Valley with his lovely wife and two children who are his biggest fans.
