WHAT IS SPINE 10 X 25?

“Recent studies have identified that spine-related impairment is the #1 cause of disability in the United States. That’s why the North American Spine Foundation has established Spine 10 x 25, an initiative that will lead to a 10% reduction in U.S. spine-related disability by the year 2025. Medical and non-medical stakeholders including providers, patients, researchers, corporate executives, economists, politicians and other thought leaders will support us as we work to address, and end, this most important public health issue.”
