A new approach to spine care.

The Spine Institute for Quality® – or Spine IQ® – is a private, non-profit organization transforming spine care.  We provide resources for chiropractors, physical therapists, osteopaths, and other clinicians who provide 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 of quality designated providers.  We believe that conservative approaches to spine-related disorders will help reduce the number of unnecessary surgeries and prescriptions, and we demonstrate the effectiveness of this type of care by tracking clinical outcomes.

Data-Driven Care

  • We enable spine care clinicians to measure the quality of care they provide through our one-of-a-kind Clinical Data Registry.
  • We track patient satisfaction in order to measure treatment outcomes.
  • We are paving the way for a spine care Quality Recognition Program that will recognize clinicians’ expertise and commitment to quality.


  • We are conducting rigorous research in order to stay at the cutting edge of spine care. We are funded by the National Institutes of Health, the National Center for Complementary and SpineIQAir Clinical Data Registry Health, and the Duke University Department of Orthopaedic Surgery.


  • We are working to improve the quality of spine care across the country by providing training materials that help clinicians meet performance standards, and ultimately help improve patient care.
