The Better Way Back® Program

Hope, Support and Information for Patients Considering Spine Surgery

The Better Way Back® program offers free patient education and support for those suffering from a spinal condition. Sponsored by NuVasive, Inc., a leader in minimally invasive, procedurally integrated spine solutions, it provides patients a safe space for compassionate discussion on all things spine, including chronic back, leg, and neck pain and surgical treatment options.

The Better Way Back champions the journey back to health. It provides comprehensive resources on conditions and treatments, as well as fosters a community exclusively for patients by patients. By connecting patients with others who have experienced similar challenges and recovered from spine surgery, The Better Way Back hopes to help demystify back pain. Recovered patients volunteer their time to share the modern, evolving story of life after back surgery.

Whether you are considering spine surgery, or you’ve recovered and are willing to share your story, join The Better Way Back’s nationwide community today. Visit, call 1.800.745.7099 or text “TBWB” to 858.360.8292.
