Several months ago I was getting a massage to address my chronic lower back pain and my therapist, who is very knowledgeable in back pain management said to me, ‘There’s a world renown back pain specialist here in Canada. His name is Dr. Stuart McGill and he’s with the University of Waterloo. Read some of […]


I get it now Dr. McGill. Super Stiffness! Spread the floor! Wow! XXXX and I worked yesterday for about and hour. I have been doing your stuff, but now I get the picture. We did the big three, one legged squats, farmer walk, pulled a rope with a small amount of weight on the end […]

Thank you so much for responding to my questions. I’m excited you are writing a book for the lay person. This is much needed and could help improve a lot of people’s lives that are filled with pain and leads many to pain drug addictions. Can you tell me when you expect to have your […]

Hi Stu I know you probably hear it all the time about how much the participants loved your course, but I thought I’d add to the stories. The clinic has been a buzz, so much so that Teresa booked 3 of us into a photographer and she took pictures of as many exercises we could […]
