I’m not sure you remember me, I am the Oregon Spanish professor who came to see you last April for low back pain. . You might recall that I had told you that I was experiencing relief from a procedure (Relievant clinical trial) that ablated the basivertebral nerves in the vertebrae. I was unblinded yesterday […]

Hey Stu, I just wanted to take a moment and say thank you. When I met you at the workshop in XXXX a few years ago I was in agony and barely training at all.  I was hurt and depressed. Since meeting you, learning from you, applying what I have learned I have overcome by […]

I read the article in “T-Nation” re: your opinion of Crossfit. I appreciated your comment about how a back injury can be considered a “TUITION” into the school of proper spine mechanics! I had a good physical therapist who agreed with your ideas, & focused his exercises on spine stiffness. I try to respect the […]

Dr McGill, First off, I want to thank you for finding time in your busy schedule to see me. As I’m sure it will come as no surprise to you, I still feel compelled to mention that my appointment was far and away, both literally and figuratively, the most unique assessment I’ve ever had! The […]

Stu, I am doing remarkably better!  You were definitely right that my issues stem from postural weakness and poor movement habits.  I was great with my posture for the first several weeks and still constantly correct my old lazy habits.  The lumbair is amazing for me at work and I have recommended it to several […]

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 […]

On a personal note – I was diagnosed with a spondylolysis back in 2001 and was initially told I could never run, lift, play sports, etc – swimming and stretching was all I’d be able to do. I came across your articles and books – they taught me how to be strong, functional, and active. […]

Dr. McGill, I’ve had back problems since I was 12 years old. I threw the discus and shotput in high school and college and continued having back problems throughout my college career. I gave up the sport at 22 because the combination of track and graduate studies at XXX were too much. I continued to […]
