JSHP will stand at the interface between basic and clinical spinal research, and will feature timely and relevant research highlighting experimental, theoretical, and clinical aspects of spinal alignment, posture, anatomy, biomechanics, health conditions, imaging, assessment, treatment, and rehabilitation.

JSHP aims to publish high quality, peer-reviewed research and attract the best material in the fields of spinal alignment, posture, anatomy, biomechanics, health conditions, imaging, assessment, treatment, and rehabilitation.
