CBI Research

CBI Health Group has a dedicated research department, whose members analyse data collected at participating CBI clinics. Routine data collection from numerous clinics over the past several years has resulted in the largest spine care database in the country. CBI researchers investigating clinical hypotheses relating to the field of musculoskeletal rehabilitation use the available data for analysis in both prospective and retrospective studies. This has enabled CBI Health Group to present and publish a steady flow of clinical material.
