Patient Journey Project

The Patient Journey Project is 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.

We know this journey to spinal health is not one that can be made alone. Through the cooperation of our Advisory Board, Board of Directors, and Centers of Excellence, 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.
