Testimonial for Daniele Barbieri

I met the ATLAS centre thanks to prof. McGill’s book “back mechanics” recommended me by a Physical Education teacher seven months ago. I immediately called Dr. Barbieri.

Testimonials for Lysander Jim

My wife and I both suffered lower back problems several years ago. We were treated symptomatically, but little real progress was made in understanding and treating the underlying cause of our problems.

After seeing Prof McGill my back has been excellent.  His advice, my continuing the Big 3 core exercises, and using the auto mechanic’s stool for my desk have brought about a profound change in my comfort and ability to resume the things I love to do, like hike, ski, and write for long hours.  Advice […]

D Duncan, Arizona, USA

I returned yesterday from a five day back packing trip in the Grand Canyon — 40 pound pack, from the rim to the river and back up (2000 meters) and many kilometers in between.  Last year at this time I could not walk 20 meters without stopping because of the pain.  I don’t believe in […]
