JUPITER, Fla. - Oct. 14, 2015 /PRNewswire-iReach/ - The North American Spine Foundation is pleased to announce receipt of Visionary Level Sponsorship from Relax The Back. These funds will support the Spine Foundation's research in Adults & Elderly in conjunction with Dr. Jeff Wang and the Keck School of Medicine at USC. This research is supports the Spine 10x25 Initiative of reducing spine-related disability by 10% by the year 2025.

Recent studies have identified spine-related impairment as the most common cause of disability in the United States. Combining direct care, disability support, and employer costs brings the annual financial impact of spinal disorders to $250B, annually. Reducing spine-related disability must become a national priority. This is the vision and mission of the North American Spine Foundation (NASF). NASF will favorably impact patients and their families, providers, employers, third-party payers, disability insurance carriers, every taxpayer, and society in general.

"Relax The Back Corporate and Franchisees have a passion for helping people live free from back and neck pain and we are excited to have found a partner that shares that vision." Leanne Mattes, VP Marketing for Relax The Back

About the North American Spine Foundation

The vision of the Spine Foundation is to end spine-related disability. The mission of the Spine Foundation is to sponsor research, education, and advocacy to end spine-related disability.Spine-related impairment out paces diabetes, lung cancer, tuberculosis, preterm birth and malaria as the leading cause of suffering worldwide.Surprisingly, the rate of spine-related symptoms has not changed, but the degree of associated disability has steadily increased over the past decade and continues to rise. This is due to the fact that spine-related disability is not just a medical issue; rather, it stems from a combination of occupational, psychological, social and medical factors.By inspiring research that reveals innovative ways to prevent spine-related disability, through efforts to educate and build global awareness, and with a collective voice on policy issues, together, we will make a difference.
