HOUSTON, Oct. 2, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Spine Pain Management, Inc. (OTCQB:SPIN), a technology-driven, medical service, device and healthcare solution company servicing the multi-billion dollar spine injury sector, through its Chairman/CEO Dr. William Donovan, MD is pleased to announce the nomination of Jeffery Cronk DC, JD, a nationally recognized expert in accident induced spine injuries, for election to the Board of Directors at the upcoming 2015 Annual Meeting of Stockholders. The 2015 Annual Meeting is scheduled for November 10, 2015.
Additionally, after three months of rigorous product safety testing of its patented proprietary Quad Video HALO™ (QVH), the Company has been notified that it passed the specific Immunity and Emission standards required by IEC 60601-1-2:2007. The Company has now filed all paper necessary for safety component approval and is not expecting any further required changes in the final QVH. Formal certification is expected shortly and will be announced upon receipt.
Dr. William Donovan, Chairman/CEO of Spine Pain Management stated, "Through both its legacy spine injury finance programs and QVH, SPIN has been attracting the attention of renowned spine treatment and legal industry experts such as Jeffrey Cronk. And in Dr. Cronk's case, so much so that he has agreed to join the Company's Board of Directors. Dr. Cronk has extensive experience treating spine injuries as a Doctor of Chiropractic. He also holds a law degree and has broad knowledge of personal injury law. Using this knowledge and experience, he has formed an educational group that has attracted a broad following of both medical and legal professionals as students. What caught my desire to nominate him to the SPIN board was his strong desire to advance transparency by holding doctors responsible for negligent care. As SPIN now moves into its growth phase, the addition of a pro-active specialist like Dr. Cronk to the SPIN team should vastly contribute to a rapid and successful roll-out of both our product lines."
Jeffrey Cronk, DC, JD- Became a Doctor of Chiropractic in 1988. In 2013 Dr. Cronk completed his Law Degree with a special emphasis on personal injury law. Dr. Cronk's main passion is in the area of Spinal Ligament Injuries and the importance of proper diagnosis and treatment.
Regarding doctors today, Dr. Cronk states: "We know the number one cause of pain and disability are spinal ligament injuries to the neck and lower back. These spinal ligament injuries commonly caused by auto, sports or work accidents cause major spinal misalignments and ensuing instabilities that are all too often missed by the doctors that are treating them. This of course leads to a delay in correct diagnosis and proper treatment, which can lead to a lifetime of unnecessary pain and suffering for the patient. This is no longer acceptable to those of us who are trying to do something about it. No patient with a spinal ligament injury should be treating with a doctor that does not fully understand how to objectively determine the severity and location of such a condition. To do so would put the patient at almost certain risk for long term problems. Today when a patient suffers as a result of this condition being missed, the treating doctor needs to be held accountable and explain to the world why the patient received improper or even negligent care."
In 2013 Dr. Cronk launched a first ever online provider training center dedicated to spinal ligament injuries. This site allows doctors of all types as well as their staff and allied professionals to watch educational content on these injuries, any time they please. Dr. Cronk's goal is to help others by replacing subjectivity with objectivity, moving from things that cannot be verified, to things that can be easily verified and to do away with vague personal opinions.
Currently, Dr. Cronk has more experience with Spinal Ligament Testing and CRMA (computerized radiographic mensuration analyses) procedures than perhaps anyone in the country. Through his high level affiliation with Spinal Kinetics, LLC—a company who is at the forefront of CRMA, the latest state of the art procedure for evaluation of spine injuries, and whose staff is licensed in 50 states—Dr. Cronk is in constant personal contact at both at the professional and student level in this rapidly growing movement.
