The National Scoliosis Foundation (NSF) is a patient-led nonprofit organization dedicated since 1976 to helping children, parents, adults, and health-care providers to understand the complexities of spinal deformities such as scoliosis. Severe scoliosis impacts the quality of life, putting pressure on the heart, diminishing lung capacity, and limiting physical activity. Thankfully, through early detection and treatment advances, the worst effects of scoliosis may be prevented.
We are involved in all aspects of scoliosis support, whether the issue is early detection through screening programs, treatment methods, pain management, or patient care. Our focus is on promoting public awareness, providing reliable information, fostering ongoing research in the field, and educating and nurturing the community of those affected by scoliosis.
Full time assistance is available Monday through Thursday, 9:00am to 4:30pm EST, offering prompt personal responses via our toll-free number, 800-NSF-MYBACK (800-673-6922). Questions may also be faxed to 781-341-8333 or e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Our mailing address is 5 Cabot Place, Stoughton, MA 02072.
We also provide comprehensive education and support for patients and healthcare professionals through videos, books, brochures, local chapters, conferences, and postural screening training sessions.

Zimmer Biomet is not an affiliate of the National Scoliosis Foundation. However, we believe that our mission of improving patient lives and alleviating pain is accelerated when connecting patients to one another, allowing them to expand their knowledge of scoliosis and build a support network.
Therefore, we are proud to share these organizations which we believe promote the connectedness and education of patients with scoliosis.
