“I had low back problems affecting my ability to work and enjoy life. Then I found Stuart McGill and his book Back Mechanic. I was guided on things to do (and not do) and my pain is gone. Professor McGill just makes sense. And he backs it up with science not guess work. I’m giving him and his book Back Mechanic the highest recommendation.”
“Dr. Stuart McGill has performed more ground-breaking research than anyone else. His 350+ published studies on back pain and enhancing performance has revolutionized the fitness industry on how we train the core and create top level performance. His books and programs have been life changing for me, my athletes and anyone I share his information with. And it will be life changing for you as well!”
Before understanding Dr. McGill’s work, I thought my back injury meant the end of my lifting career. Since absorbing all of his knowledge and applying the lessons in this book to my daily life, my career has been restored. I am stronger than ever – and taking my back health to new heights.
We have implemented many of your methods and have seen our back injuries decline from roughly $40,000 per claim to $10,000 per claim. Our overall injuries have dropped from roughly $1.2 mil to $750,000.”
Thank you again
I am a physician. I have never read a more straightforward and lucid book (Back Mechanic) on back injuries and how to manage them than yours. Thanks for the wonderful work you have done that has helped so many people, me included.

From a pain management doctor:
Have reviewed your material…Excellent. Really. Thanks.
The present healthcare system (esp. back pain management) makes me sick. Backs are lined up by the “pain” specialists and epidural steroids slammed in with great remuneration and little benefit. It is also completely UNauditable.
I have always believed that eventually the public will get the message…if they only spent as much time on researching their health as they do when buying a used car then the world would be a better place. However patients (in pain or otherwise) are only thinking with their brainstem.
I just have to thank you for all your amazing resources. After not being able to stand without pain and having to stop all my training, I did exactly as you recommended. I bought the Back Mechanic book and read it/practiced all the recommendations during my December offseason and I am back in action with my XXX Training for the tournament this coming November. I have to say that your Ultimate Back Revision 2 DVD was also very beneficial to further reinforce the concepts and assuring that I was practicing all the exercises and tests with proper form. Once again thanks for sharing your knowledge and helping me continue to do and practice what I love!
