Welcome to

BackFitPro

This website provides evidence-based information and quality products that help to prevent and rehabilitate back pain. All back pain has a cause. Professor McGill dedicated 32 years to investigating how the spine works, the mechanisms of pain, and proven ways to eliminate pain and restore pain-free activity.

The key to pain-free activity is to assess the pain mechanism and employ a matched approach. Some pain sufferers can perform this themselves with guidance from the book Back Mechanic. Others are more challenging and benefit with clinical expertise from highly trained clinicians listed on the McGill Method Master Clinician page. Clinicians can also access Professor McGill’s latest books and videos that guide the assessment together with providing helpful information and rehabilitation approaches for pain-free activity and optimal back performance.

“As a physician myself there is no question in my mind that the McGill method should be the standard of care for all back pained patients.” ~ Read Our Latest Testimonials

Is sitting painful?

If sitting creates back discomfort, you have a highly sensitized back, or tissue damage, or both. Avoiding this pain trigger with a support when sitting will reduce the pain sensitivity.
