Thank you to the Michigan Association of Chiropractors for allowing us to join you at your meeting Sept 15th-17th!
Dr. Linda Holland, one of the MIBAC Associate Directors and our Program Corodinator, Alescia Toatley, were in attendance to represent the Michigan Back Collaborative! They truly enjoyed seeing the talented Chiropractors and meeting presenter, Dr. Alessandra Colon.
When you think of serious, disabling health conditions, you probably don't think about back pain. However, back pain is a common condition that up to 80% of people in the U.S. will experience in their lifetime. In fact, it is the leading cause of disability globally.

MIBAC is a Collaborative of first-contact clinicians working together using a multi-disciplinary approach to evidence-based care for back pain statewide.
It is our belief that by evaluating practice patterns, following emerging research, communicating more effectively with our patients by following a biopsychosocial approach, and sharing our knowledge throughout our great state, we can accomplish our goals.
The goals of MIBAC are to achieve more effective care patterns, better outcomes for patients, and increased satisfaction for clinicians and patients.
Dr. Dan Spencer is a passionate advocate for better care for back pain. He is our featured participant profile for August. For the full article, please see Events & Resources > Newsletters to view the August Newsletter.
MIBAC is funded by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan (BCBSM). Although they provide funding, the views and opinions of the collaborative do not express the views of BCBSM. We are grateful for their ongoing support.
