A new approach to spine care.

The Spine Institute for Quality® – or Spine IQ® – is a private, non-profit organization with the goal of transforming spine care.  We provide resources for doctors of chiropractic, primary care physicians, physical therapists, and other clinicians who wish to focus on non-invasive, non-drug treatments for spine-related disorders.  We also help patients make informed decisions by providing information about evidence-based treatment options and by providing a searchable database with access to doctors of chiropractic through the Spine IQ Quality Recognition Program. We believe that conservative approaches to spine-related disorders will help reduce the number of unnecessary surgeries and prescriptions, and we are committed to evaluating the effectiveness of this type of care by tracking clinical outcomes in real world clinical settings.
