  Research  
 
  There have never been more options for treating spine diseases. Many of the techniques and technologies are new. With multiple new and sometimes conflicting courses of treatment available, there is a pressing need to research the efficacy of the various options.

When is surgery warranted?

Which medications are most effective?

Which surgical technique is most effective?

How soon after an injury is it best to perform surgery?

These are just some of the questions that are currently debated in medicine.

Answering these questions, and many other similar questions regarding spine care, is the focus for the research activities of the National Spine Foundation. Through funding research fellowships, sponsoring IDE studies and holding educational forums for the presentation of new studies, the National Spine Foundation strives to advance our knowledge of the most effective treatments for treating spine pain.
