The Patient Journey serves as a unique patient education and advocacy initiative that aspires to prevent injuries, help patients achieve improved spinal health, strengthen provider-patient relationships, and reduce the uncertainty and anxiety experienced by those suffering from spinal injuries and disorders.
Each patient’s spine health experience is unique, and everyone deserves honest answers and unbiased support to navigate the treatment choices
that are right for them. That’s why we’ve created the Patient Journey, a set of resources to guide patients in spine health awareness and prevention as well as diagnosis, treatment, and recovery for conditions ranging from common to severe. Resources include:
Through the cooperation of our Medical & Scientific Board, we are able to apply an unmatched level of medical expertise to these issues, resulting in meaningful and accessible information that will help patients overcome their challenges and achieve improved spinal health.
Prevention: Behavior and lifestyle factors that help prevent back and neck pain.
Choosing a Specialist: Identify the best spine specialists for you.
Conditions: Learn more about your spinal health condition.
Non-Surgical Treatment: Available alternatives to surgical treatment.
Surgical Treatment: Surgical options available to alleviate back and neck pain.
Our Spinal Champion program provides relief from the emotional and physical challenges that spinal patients face. We are pioneering patient support initiatives that bring together spinal patients, allowing them to share their experiences, offer support, and find strength and comfort in others who are battling similar challenges.
Spinal Champion: A person who has achieved an improved quality of life through treatment for neck or back pain.
The moment you step foot into one of our Center of Excellence, their team will work collaboratively to support you in achieving the goal of becoming a Spinal Champion. Join the We’ve Got Your Back campaign and celebrate with others by participating in one of our events!
Share Your Story: We love to hear from our Spinal Champions – your stories will inspire, teach, and provide hope for others. No story is too small; each journey to recovery is equally powerful and helps build awareness and hope. Celebrate your success while inspiring others and share your story!
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 program brings together individuals who have achieved
improved quality of life through treatment for their neck or back pain to share their own
stories of hope and provide encouragement to other patients. Spinal Champions help others
find strength, comfort, and peer-to-peer support in a community that understands.
Our “Get Back to It” Podcast showcases these inspiring individuals and the steps they took to
heal. Do you have a Spinal Champion story of your own to share? We encourage you to be part
of our growing community and support others by sharing your experience.
