Who are we?

Our member community can be broken down into several categories

  • a) Just starting having spinal problems, pain and discomfort
    b) Are having their first surgery
    c) Problems after surgery
    d) Failed surgeries
    e) Total Success
For the most part, we hear about a through d. The ones that have total success have probably moved on. They sign up for Spine-Health, then go through whatever they need to go through, things are successful, they feel better and no longer need the site. I am very happy for those folks.

People tend to register for Spine-Health when they first start having spinal problems. They want to better understand the various conditions and treatments. Plus they find that besides having our member forums and details articles and videos, that our forums in many ways act as a support group. I've talked with many members regarding who they can talk to, is their a local group for discussions, etc. Some hospitals, rehabilitation centers and doctors have lists of various support groups. But attending those in person is not always easy for some folks.

Instead, having a virtual online community provides them with the best of everything. A resource center, a chance to hear from others and a support group that is so very helpful, but at the same time faceless.

Who are you?

We really dont want to be faceless. We want the understanding and compassion of other members. Here you can do that. In the almost 10 years that I have been with Spine-Health, I can tell you the hundreds of members that touched me and made an impression. Some of those folks still remain close to my heart, even if they are no longer active on Spine-Health.

I believe we have a special gift that is there for everyone I also believe we have the gift in getting to know so many others.
