is there no longer chat?

Where is "chat"? has it been disab.ed? or am I unable to see it on this computer?

    on Spine-Health due to numerous software problems.

    At this time, there is no plans for looking for another software company that can be integrated into the software that drives Spine-Health. Prior to these problems, the usage of CHAT for an 18 moth period of time was extremely low which helped justify the reason to disable it.

  • This is very disappointing news. It's been a while since I visited chat, but knowing it was there if I needed it was sort of comforting. I know of no other chat devoted to spine problems. Maybe if more people knew the chat was available they would have used it?
  • I believe the reason why chat was not accessed much is because of the spine health "upgrade" 18 months ago. There were many of us that had trouble with java. Chat was a very vital part of the spine health site and I for one miss it very much. Please bring it back, when you are in pain, it helps to be able to speak in real time to someone "who gets it". There were problems from the get go with the upgrade and it was never fixed.Up til that point there were many users that would pop in and out. I agree with the above poster, I have tried to find other spine sites and there aren't any that I can find. Please consider bringing it back. Thanks, m
