Dr. Stuart M. McGill is a professor of spine biomechanics at the University of Waterloo (Waterloo, ON, Canada). His advice is often sought by governments, corporations, legal experts and elite athletes and teams from around the world. Difficult back cases are regularly referred to him for consultation. Any product associated with this website has been tested in Dr. McGill's laboratory at the University of Waterloo, ON, Canada.
"Dr. McGill's research and investigations around 'low back pain sydromes' has helped me troubleshoot dysfunction in many of the athletes and fitness enthusiasts I see. I began following his work in 2004 during my Master's degree in Exercise Science and still use his methods today. As a Faculty member in the Department of Kinesiology at Langara College, I also share his findings with my students, even at the first year level, to help them better understand the impact of correct, or incorrect movement mechanics can have on spine health. Each term my students claim they feel "enlightened and empowered" by this knowledge and have tangible strategies they can use to stay healthy and strong."
