There are many ways to get involved with the National Spine Health Foundation, but the primary way is through the Spinal Champion® community. A Spinal Champion® is a person who has achieved an improved quality of life through spinal health care. We know that patients facing a debilitating back or neck condition can often feel lost, alone, and overwhelmed – but the road to recovery doesn’t have to be a lonely one. Our Spinal Champions® help others find strength, comfort, and peer-to-peer support in a community that understands. You can learn more about our Spinal Champion® community here.
