Love being part of a community that makes me feel like I am not alone.
I am so grateful to have found SpineNation. Living with chronic back pain has been physically and emotionally debilitating. Hearing from other “pain warriors” gave me the confidence to move ahead with surgery. This is because SpineNation members share their stories and give advice and suggestions coming from a place of experience. I received suggestions for home equipment as well as post-surgery items to make life a little easier. Thank you for keeping the information flowing and maintaining this essential community.
Dealt with back pain the past 10 years. Finally getting back to activities that I love. SpineNation has helped me learn and connect with the right info I need to manage my issues.
