How to Stay Up to Date with Spine Care: 3 Articles, 2 Quotes, and 1 Question

I subscribe to a newsletter by James Clear, author of Atomic Habits, entitled “3-2-1 Thursday.” Mr. Clear includes 3 ideas, 2 quotes, and 1 question in a regular email newsletter.

I also have some Google alerts setup so that I can receive up to date information on back pain, spine intervention treatments, and other topics that I follow. I read journals particular to my space in Pain Medicine. But it is hard to keep up with the flow of information related to spine manipulation, exercise, surgical and nonsurgical medicine.

So I decided to follow the lead set by “3-2-1 Thursdays” and create a newsletter with 3 recent articles from different domains of spine care, 2 quotes, and 1 question. My hope is that this format will allow for interaction of a wide circle of specialists and will create a space to help keep us all more up to date.
