BackForever works for 95% of members because most back and neck pain is the result of two causes: our behaviors (the way we sit, stand, move, and live) and the resulting breakdown in the body’s natural support system for the spine — the core. These behaviors are very similar across all Americans. Those with back pain tend to bend, twist, lift, sit, stand, work, and play in the same patterns — motions that degrade and damage their backs over time. BackForever teaches new ways to move and live based on what members tell us they do every day. Members begin the exercise portion of the program from a starting point unique to them, based on their own comfort level and our recommendations derived from the information in their self-assessments.
Once BackForever teaches you to give yourself instant, short-term relief, the real work begins — teaching you how to change behaviors to make that relief permanent. The process looks like this.
The path to a healthy back and neck starts and ends with you. No one can cure your pain for you. You have to do the hard work. This is the reason that back pain is such an epidemic in this and other countries, and why it is so poorly treated: we are used to modern, Western medicine fixing things for us. Make no mistake, modern medicine is remarkable at fixing many things. But for some conditions, a simple fix doesn’t work. Heart disease is one of those — you have to change your lifestyle and behavior to prevent or reverse heart disease. Back pain is similar.
Most of you have probably experienced blessed short-term relief from a shot, pill, chiropractic adjustment, or stretch given to you by a health care provider. But what happened after? For many of you, the pain came back. Those providers cannot change your behavior and habits for you. YOU are in charge of your recovery. That is why you can do this without physically seeing a doctor.
When I first started practice, my number one goal was to make my clients as self-sufficient as possible in as little time as possible. Over the years I became very adept at getting my clients to take care of themselves in almost no time. I quickly realized that education, not manual therapy or drugs, was the key to long-term success.
After a year or so in practice, I was able to see clients all over the world via Skype, teaching them how to relieve their own back pain and change their behaviors without ever physically meeting them. BackForever is the next evolution in this process. Through my years of experience and study of the latest research, I have developed the best system of teaching people to learn these concepts in the fastest, most efficient manner through videos and written instruction. The videos and instruction are here for you whenever you need them. Come back whenever you need to. Go at your own pace until you master it all, changing your behaviors and rebuilding your back and body for lifelong back pain relief. We strongly recommend you consult with a physician before beginning this program.
