Hope in Recovery
Safeguarding Your Spine
We’re proud to have brought a fuller, more active life to nearly 10,000 individuals. Many of these people were initially told that their pain was either ‘imaginary’ or ‘permanent’ by traditional medical professionals. Some patients were informed that nothing could be done about their back problems. Others had previous surgeries that didn’t go as planned, or were proposed conventional or “Less Invasive Spinal Surgery” (LISS) that they found daunting. The Spinal Foundation is here to offer help in these challenging circumstances.
Long-term back issues are indeed challenging, both for patients and medical practitioners. The true sources of back pain aren’t always entirely understood, making treatment more complex. The Spinal Foundation was created to provide support and relief to individuals who, without our help, may have been left to cope with their pain and disability. This is critical given that the NHS spends about £480 million annually on back pain services, many of which haven’t proven effective.
Our aim at The Spinal Foundation is to keep treatment options open for our patients, even as their spine continues to degenerate. By doing so, we can take advantage of emerging surgical techniques, ensuring that our patients always have access to the latest, most effective treatments.
