Access to Spine Care Research

Access to spine care research

Knowledge is power! That’s why Spine IQ is gathering the data and research needed to help transform spinal care.

Our registries allow us to partner with practitioners from across the country to collect the information necessary to compare clinical and cost outcomes for patients with spine-related pain.

Studies focused on this data will enhance our understanding of how spine care impacts both physical and emotional functioning for a variety of musculoskeletal conditions.
