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 […]

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 […]

March 9th 2014 It was mid January 2013 when I was experiencing lower back pain shooting down my right leg and into my foot. I then attended several appointments with a chiropractor and massage therapist only to have the pain get worse. I then went to see two different physiotherapists for approximately four months two […]
