Sandra V. PT

Hello Dr. McGill, I just got home from the course you taught in XXX. Thank-you for teaching this weekend. The effort and discipline you put into knowledge translation is much appreciated. I had so many questions (cognitive dissonance) in my head on the drive home and I am glad I bought the DVD’s because I […]


Dr. McGill’s research and investigations around ‘low back pain syndromes’ 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 XXXX at […]


Hey Stu, I’m re-watching the DVDs of you and Gray, which Laree D sent me. I just wanted to tell you that the information you’ve provided here has been one of the absolute most valuable and comprehensive educational experiences I can remember. You really did an amazing job of discussing the evidence and its practical […]


Dr McGill, I am pleased and super happy to let you know that I have been pain free for quite some time now and my core is stronger than ever thanks to your simple prescription.  I am deadlifting (up to my previous max) and o-lifting again:)  I use the exercises you gave me with most of […]


Hi, I just was reading the article Spine Flexion Myths on the website. First, I want to say in addition to being an exercise physiologist, my clinical training was done in spinal cord injury recreational therapy. Quickly, I’ve found the approach to core training offered by Dr. McGill to be spot-on for those I work […]

Dr J Randhawa

I had a chronic back pain patient who came to me about 7 months ago with what was then debilitating back pain. He had seen every MD, Physio, Chiro ect under the sun and no one could “fix” him. He had been an avid golfer and wanted nothing more than to return to playing golf. […]

Hello Stu, Thanks for your prompt reply. Since I’m writing, I can let you know that I’m one more person who really values and appreciates the work you have been doing at Waterloo. I’m mostly retired now, but wish I’d had this updated science in my training and CE years ago. People still come to […]

Stu, Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to meet with us, especially considering our last minute changes. Your expertise and professionalism are inspiring. I learned a tremendous amount which will not only serve XXX, but the rest of my group and every other athlete henceforth.

Two years ago I was suffering of an extremely painful low back condition after years of discontinuous discomfort. A minor fall off my bike exacerbated the problem to the point that I could hardly move. Best doctors in town suggested a tough spine surgery as only solution with uncertain results. Searching for an alternative I […]

Hi Dr. McGill, XXXXXX… Thanks for your time. I know you are a busy man. Also, thank you for your time spent on research. You have changed the way we clinicians look at the spine and I’m grateful for that every single day when working with patients! Thanks again,

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 […]

Rob K. Canada

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 […]
