Patient and Clinician Guides to Managing Back and Neck Pain in the Time of COVID-19
This Guide should only be considered in situations where social isolation is required or where clinicians or patients have elected to reduce contact, due to COVID-19, to those who require urgent or emergency care. It is expected that patients and providers will continue regular care as soon as any restrictions are lifted.
This Guide is provided as a public education service. WSC assumes no responsibility for any legal issues that may arise. Note that the GSCI Classification and Care Pathway has not yet been scientifically validated.
This Guide was developed by a multidisciplinary panel of 28 spine care authorities and clinicians from 10 countries on 4 continents.
