Patient Health

Patients with spine disorders suffer significantly reduced quality of life, and it is often difficult to determine the optimal course of treatment for an individual.  To advance the state of personalized spine disorder treatment and help improve patient health, the Spine Research Institute invests its time into three primary research initiatives: 

Impairment Quantification
Design reliable and repeatable measures that describe impairment severity and behavior.

Functional Diagnostics
Develop diagnostic tools that allow physicians to identify the cause of pain during natural dynamic motions.

Virtual Treatment Evaluation
Create a virtual platform that empowers physicians to assess the effects of different treatments before they are implemented.
