In the late 90s, co-founder, Stephanie Burke, partnered with her brother, Dr. Peter Ullrich to combine their medical and business backgrounds to launch Spine-health.com – a website designed to give patients straight-forward, truthful, and helpful information about their spine conditions. From there the company took off because of its unique ability to meet the demands of savvy patients researching their back pain on the web.

Sylvia Marten, President of Veritas Health, attributes Veritas Health’s success to:

    --  The quality of the content and helpful patient community at
    --  The large and rapidly growing ranks of back and neck pain sufferers, due
        to the increasingly aging population and lifestyle choices that can
        cause spine issues
    --  The rise of the empowered patient, as more and more patients and
        caregivers seek to better understand their spine symptoms and treatment

Marten comments, “We have worked hard to build a strong reputation as a respected source for back and neck pain information since 1999. Using a unique approach to patient education, Spine-health and more recently Arthritis-health have set themselves apart by developing content that is original, written and peer-reviewed by medical professionals, and has garnered numerous awards for health content excellence.”
