I became Vice President of DISCS because I know from personal experience how painful and debilitating back pain can be, as indeed do millions of others.
 

Current Projects

We are currently looking for £100,000 in order to fund more research into back pain.

DISCS works hard to raise funds to sponsor medical researchers and spinal surgeons
who are conducting research to into the fundamental causes of back pain,  and
working towards  developing new and innovative approaches to transform the
treatment of pack pain.  There is a growing need for this research, as
debilitating back pain can affect up to 80% of the UK population at some
point in their lives.

To find out what we have been up to and want to do in the future, look at our past and current projects.... but please bear with us with some of the language - backs are complex things and they have their own medical terms.

We welcome donations in all of its forms from sponsored sporting events, commercial sponsorship to wills and one off donations. Any gift, large or small, would be much appreciated. Please see our donate page.

Thank you.
