The Spine Research Institute of San Diego is a private research organization founded in 1984 by Arthur C. Croft, DC, MS, MPH. Since that time the institute has been actively engaged in the synthesis and dissemination of information relating to a wide range of injuries and conditions arising out of motor vehicle trauma, with a special focus on the most common forms of clinical conditions which impose the greatest public health burden today-a burden shared by private citizens, their health care providers, private insurers, automobile manufacturers, and state and local government.
