Is the McGill Method For You?

The McGill Method courses are designed for professionals who wish to enhance their mastery in dealing with back-pained clientele. These include advanced trainers, chiropractors, osteopaths, physical medicine specialists, physical therapists, athletic therapists, and others who work to reduce back pain. The McGill material provides an understanding of how the back works together with pathways to pain and dysfunction. Then delegates learn the clinical skills of assessment to converge on a precise understanding of the mechanism. Armed with this, the clinician then shows the client how to avoid the cause with movement and life hacks allowing the pain to desensitize. Ability is then restored with strategic development of mobility and stability that suits the individuals’ goals. This approach has been proven in thousands of top level athletes, through the spectrum to those struggling with back pain and who think their only remaining option is to have surgery. Following this approach 95% of those who have been told they need surgery avoid it. Those practitioners who go on to become certified in the McGill Method are referred patients and clients through the Backfitpro website.
The lectures by Prof McGill are content dense and highly consumable given the self-paced learning environment online. Embedded in the lectures are recorded hands-on skills development sessions with past delegates.

Interactive skills development workshops will be conducted in the future in small groups with Dr Ed Cambridge and Joel Proskewitz. Some of you will take this opportunity to synthesize your knowledge and skills and take the exam to become certified in the McGill Method.
