Since 2004, the nascent non-profit has helped spinal patients by including them in a global community, providing support in their problem-solving, and accelerating their path to wellness. We aspire to help patients research and consider the best solution for their spine dysfunction, whether device-based, biological, or naturopathic. Our success is measured by patients’ ability to return to work, recreation, and their freedom of movement. Our day-to-day operations are rooted in our commitment to consumer education, one-on-one patient care and grass-roots advocacy.
We understand that most people have never heard of biofilms, let alone their crucial role in chronic bacterial disease. And we know that bacterial biofilms have existed on this planet for eons and have always been part of nature. But for mankind, the “nature” of disease is changing. And the human community is finally learning how bacterial communities are working together to survive – and thrive – in human beings for long periods of time.
In an effort to help people grasp the breadth and depth of bacterial biofilms, and how they cause chronic bacterial diseases that affect tens of millions of Americans, we created an online community focused specifically on bacterial biofilms. Inquiring minds will find an interesting mix of articles, commentary and video interviews with experts. This is cutting-edge intelligence to help you get the 8th grade biology lesson you never had. You may also register and discuss any aspect of our film….on biofilms!
We launched our international discussion board in 2004 to help spine patients sort through the many complex issues involving spinal arthroplasty. We continue to be the largest, oldest and most specific online community focused on spine motion preservation. While the site has been visited by every country in the world that has Internet access, its evolving dialogue is moving towards the root causes of spinal diseases. Registration is free and patients find the community is well-informed, helpful and caring.
