About Dr. Handford

_MG_8023b Dan Handford final2Practice History
Dr. Dan Handford discovered while practicing general chiropractic that he was unable to serve patients with serious spinal disc problems. These patients would come to see him and the only option available was for him to recommend surgery or pain management. After struggling with how to treat these patients, he did extensive research and developed the NDS Methodâ„¢ to help patients avoid back surgery. He worked for another doctor in Greenville, SC for 4 years before opening up his own private practice in West Columbia, SC in June of 2011.

Dr. Handford truly has a God-given passion to help people avoid back surgery and is on a mission to keep people from literally losing their lives to disability because of the complications from spinal surgery.
