Freqeuntly Asked Questions

Our tool is suitable for anyone over the age of 16 suffering from lower back pain and possibly associated leg pain. This program is NOT for upper back or neck pain. The programs are adaptable to all physical ability levels. Our tool is intended to treat a variety of mechanical back pain disorders, which encompasses the vast majority of back pain. However, there are some situations where the source of your back pain may need special or immediate medical attention. In these situations, our tool would NOT be recommended. We have included a special screening tool to make sure you’re in the right place and can proceed with confidence, however, this screening tool is NOT a replacement for a comprehensive medical assessment, and the only way to be sure you are safe to proceed is to be assessed by a qualified healthcare professional.  

While there is nothing stopping you from sharing this information with a friend or family member, your back pain program was designed for you, and although it may seem as though their back pain is the same, with the wrong advice you may end up hurting someone you care about. If you want to share your program to show the awesome tool you’ve received, go ahead! We appreciate the support, but we’d highly recommend you also share our link so the ones you care about can get the top-notch care their backs also deserve.

No, hands-on therapies such as mobilization, adjustment, and massage are not necessary to get rid of back pain. Research shows that exercise, education, and behavioral therapies, such as those provided in our programs, can be just as effective as hands-on therapies. This being said hands-on therapies provided by medical professionals are also a good treatment option and may be something you want to investigate further.

But be cautious, no one can cure your back pain for you. All good back pain treatments will require some effort on your part. While a relaxing massage may feel nice and can be beneficial, this is only temporary relief. If you want to treat your back pain at the source, it’s going to take some effort on your part. 

It is our goal to make the quality of care you expect to receive from an experienced back pain professional as accessible, efficient, and easy as possible.

While many “5-minute cures” can be found online, none have ever shown any reproducible potential. We wish we could tell you your back pain will go away overnight, but unfortunately, that is likely not the case. Most back pain cases resolve in 6 weeks or less, in some cases, back pain can last up to 12 weeks. In some rare cases, pain may last the better part of a year.

We truly believe that our programs provide the best possible tools to help you overcome your back pain as quickly as possible. So if you’re ready to commit to getting better, we are confident in your ability to get there.

To achieve the results you want our programs will require only about 10-20 minutes of your attention each day. If you think about all the time you’ve already spent in pain or consider the time you stand to lose in the future, these 10-20 minutes will feel like nothing.

Our programs do not rely on any expensive gadgets or gimmicks. While our focus is on the long term, temporary pain relief can be helpful in your day-to-day management. Accordingly, we may recommend some tools and strategies that have been shown to provide temporary pain relief. This being said none of our programs require any equipment you can’t likely find in your house already.

Exercise is a double-edged knife as it does have the potential to aggravate back pain, but it also stands to make huge improvements. This is where identifying the source of your pain and adjusting the parameters of your exercise accordingly becomes so critical. If you do the right exercises at the right intensity they will not aggravate your back. Some discomfort during exercise is normal, however, our tool takes the guesswork out and provides you with strategies and exercises that won’t leave you feeling worse. This is something you won’t get from a generic “Top 5 Exercises for Back Pain” youtube video. or blog post. 

Back pain is a complex condition with many social and physical contributing factors. So the short answer is no, we cannot guarantee that your back pain goes away completely with just our program and you may need additional help. However, in the vast majority of cases our programs should be all you need to get rid of pain and increase function.

If you are in the small percentage who do not respond to our programs send us a message and we will do our best to help you find your next step. Right now our programs are also completely free, so you have nothing to lose by trying but have so much to gain.
