Helping Those Who May Otherwise Be Left To Suffer

In Place of Pain

The Spinal Foundation was established to help people who would have simply been left to cope with their pain and disability. This is especially important because the NHS currently spends about £480 million on services for back pain many of which are ineffective.


A History of Success

The Spinal Foundation has been developing and refining its techniques for over 20 years and has already successfully treated over 6,100 complex cases using laser "keyhole" surgery on patients who would otherwise have required a major intervention such as fusion surgery.
