Mend My Back Conditioning Program

Welcome to the Mend My Back Conditioning Program. ​​Four modules focusing on back mobility, back stability, flexibility, and strength.

​The Mend My Back Conditioning Program ​came to life ​after Ian went through back surgery. He was diagnosed with 5 herniated discs. ​When the idea of surgery was presented to him he turned it down at first. At the time it really felt like it was the only way out. In hind sight, we'll never know, but he's not sure he would have gone through with it. Since then, hundreds of Laura's clients have gone through the MMB programs.

Ian eventually realized ​what had become a very serious back problem was the accumulation of micro bad habits over the years and decades. Imagine ​catching an unpleasant cold. You heal from it, but not fully. You carry weaknesses with you over the years making you more vulnerable to more serious chronic conditions due to immune suppression. Few people worry about prevention, most of us ​go see ​a professional when problems are present to help resolve them. Let's try to avoid the suffering before​ the problem happens!

Today, functional ​movement testing has revealed weaknesses that, in hind sight, Ian ​did not realize he had. ​Few people take the time to see someone ​who is trained with the right movement science knowledge. Kinesiologists, athletic therapists, physiotherapists, ​some osteopaths and chiropractors have the expertise​ to validate and treat ​musculoskeletal issues.
