Who we are

The Better Way Back champions the journey back to healthy by sharing patient stories and information on spinal conditions and treatment options that can help empower patients to make educated decisions alongside their care team. Our recovered patients, called patient ambassadors, volunteer their time to share the modern, evolving story of life after back surgery.
