Get Support

Chronic back, leg, and neck pain affects over 65 million Americans.

Chronic pain can make your life miserable, compromising relationships with friends and family. You know the importance of staying positive, but it’s tough given the relentless nature of the pain. Don’t give up! You’re not alone.

The Better Way Back® is a program built on the power of empathy. Our Patient Ambassadors are ready to help. These compassionate men and women are former back, leg, and neck pain sufferers who have undergone a spinal procedure. They have lived through similar pain and suffering that you’re experiencing and have emerged healthy and grateful. They have made themselves available as resources to listen intently, answer questions, and share their experience so you don’t have to suffer alone.

Our Patient Ambassadors are available to provide you with encouragement and emotional support,
both before and after surgery.

Patient Ambassadors

The Better Way Back® Patient Ambassadors know what it’s like to live with chronic back, leg, and neck pain.


Having undergone spine surgery, they know first-hand what you’re going through right now, and they’ve volunteered to share their stories and help with encouragement, answers to your questions, or just a kind heart and sympathetic ear.
