“I do not know many people who would risk life and limb to protect my family and me. Yet the men and women in blue: the police, sheriff, firemen and paramedics put themselves in harm’s way on a daily basis, protecting us and keeping our communities safe. Imagine our communities without them. The BacktheBlue program is a way for the Southern California Spine Institute, its doctors and employees to give back to those who give so much.”
– Ian Armstrong, M.D.
What We Do
The medical director of the Southern California Spine Institute, Dr. Ian Armstrong, has taken care of many of these community heroes over the past 15 years of practice in the Los Angeles area. Back and neck injuries are one of the most common injuries and causes of disability found in this group of public servants. Their fast-paced, sometimes hazardous careers often lead to spine problems. Many of these problems could be eliminated or reduced by early detection, proper spine-health education and a spine-directed exercise program.
Southern California Spine Institute’s BacktheBlue Program has been developed to come along side our men and women in blue and provide for them free medical spine evaluations and spine health counseling by one of our trained specialists. This is coupled with guidance in developing a spine-healthy lifestyle and, importantly, direction in developing an appropriate exercise regimen to optimize spine health. “The vast majority of acute and chronic spine problems can be eliminated by proper exercise, appropriate weight management and a back-healthy lifestyle.”
The SCSI BacktheBlue Program is a way that Southern California Spine Institute, its doctors and employees can give back to those who give so much.
