Welcome to the member website area of the American Academy of Spine Physicians (AASP). The Academy offers its members a variety of internet and website resources. These resources can be used to enhance professional recognition, to create strategic links to databases and to introduce professional services.
As part of the National Spinecare Public Awareness Initiative, the AASP offers a customized interactive website to its members. There is no charge for the development, setup and deployment of the website. For those members who already have an independent website, the AASP website can be linked to it via a Plugin logo and serve as a specialty online spine information center for the practice.
There is no cost for the basic website, although there is a cost for hosting the website and for special project development. The AASP website also contains the unique resources of the National Spinecare Awareness Campaign, including downloadable facts sheets, PowerPoint programs/slides, brochures and press releases. Members are encouraged to take advantage of available Plugins to expand the breadth and depth of information delivered through their professional website.
Features of the AASP Practice Website:
• Send eMail eblasts to patients
• Build Article Library
• Display patient testimonials
• Show directions to your office
• Display practice news
• Ability to link to Patient Information Center
• Refer a patient feature
• Affordable Price
• And much more....
I cannot sing the praises enough about my website you are hosting. The design is outstanding. I have received numerous compliments from my patients about it! Furthermore, we have had many new patients come in due to the information provided on the website.
I couldn't be happier with the service, ease and convenience of the site. My patients and I can communicate through the website on a regular basis. I have been able to set up an on-line store to offer products to my patient base and I have the convenience of updating information on the website myself any time I choose. Kevin, you have been outstanding with the service! Any time I have had a question, you have been immediately available to answer. You have provided me with the gracious service of dressing up my e-blasts by taking what would be a regular type written paragraph and making it look like a professional marketing statement.
I paid over $200.00 per month for a website that didn't provide half of the content and service that the AASP website does. I recommend that all physicians take a very hard look at this deal; I guarantee you won't find one as good anywhere else!
Yours in health,
Christopher Bennett, D.C.
AASP Member Testimonial - David Radford, D.C. - Solon, OH
I am truly enjoying the benefits of membership in the AASP. I appreciate the effort you made to move my website and revamp my web pages. The website is more professional now and the traffic from the site has turned into real patients calling for appointments, not just website visitors.
I am using the new educational brochure and the diagnosis check off list in my report of findings.
The patient's with Internet access are returning to site to find out more about their spine problems and the information available there has reduced the amount of time I need to spend explaining the various spinal disorders. I have encouraged several of my chiropractic and neurosurgical colleagues to join the AASP.
I think the potential for professional synergy is tremendous. It is a wonderful platform for both of our professions. We will grow closer together in this effort, the patients we serve will certainly benefit.
I truly believe AASP is more than a marketing tool; it is an area of common ground for both our patients and for professional education. Keep up the good work and thanks for all your help.

The online "Inform a Colleague" feature provides an invaluable time-saving service for keeping spinecare professionalsup-to-date, expanding the spinecare network, stimulating interdisciplinary referrals and for inviting colleagues to join the AASP.
