Why the Spinefoundation?

Although medical scientists, physicians and many others have amassed an extensive body of KNOWLEDGE about the human spine and its functions, there is still a lot unknown about the healthy and diseased spine and about its physical strain.

Additionally, there is a large lack of KNOWLEDGE about the healthcare situation of the spine. How the population is generally affected, how specific professional or athletic categories and others are affected and in which extend, and how the different kinds of conservative treatment and surgeries really can help to get a good spine.     

Based on these reasons, the Büttner-Janz Spinefoundation promotes projects and activities which gain the target to get new, advanced and concentrated KNOWLEDGE about the healthy and diseased spine. Furthermore, the Büttner-Janz Spinefoundation promotes the structured and understandable presentation of such KNOWLEDGE.

The work of the foundation is destined to improve the health of the spine and the medical research about the spine.
