Everyone on this site is dealing with chronic pain of different sorts, as well as other diagnoses. Any day could be a bad day or a good day. Let's treat everyone with respect and kindness and assume that we are all doing our best but maybe having a bad day. No -isms will be tolerated!
If someone posts about their experiences and asks a question or seeks advice, by all means, offer it. But sometimes, we need to vent and commiserate. Please refrain from giving unsolicited advice or telling other members what they should do. Instead, respectfully offer some things that helped you along your journey.
Our mission is to support our community members by educating, supporting, and empowering them to live their best lives despite their spine issues. Please do not spam our feed or groups with promotions and links to products for profits or your company/practice. You can share products when someone asks for recommendations or advice.
Being part of groups on SpineNation requires mutual trust. Authentic, expressive discussions make groups tremendous but may also be sensitive and private. Don't share screenshots, speak about members in other forums, or share sensitive information about peers. What happens on SpineNation, stays on SpineNation.
