Spine Program

The goal of the Spine Program is to improve the health status for members with back and neck pain issues. We use a multi-disciplinary, population-based approach that promotes evidence-based diagnosis and treatment. Our goal is to manage health care costs, while helping you achieve optimal control of your disease.

Program interventions assist you in understanding neck and back pain, promoting self-management skills and facilitating a collaborative relationship that can reduce complications.
