Our Essentials program is an overview and abbreviated version of our full conditioning program. You will find information on basic spinal anatomy, a summary of why we have back pain, along with a balance of our top 10 exercises targeting a more supple, stronger back. We will reveal three soothing foundational postures to try when dealing with intense discomfort. Learn how to move, stand and breathe better leading to a healthier, stronger back.
Targeted to anyone who has experienced back discomfort and those who wish to prevent back pain.

At Mend My Back we're not about volume and skimming the important stuff. We care about the quality of content we provide you. The Essentials program content offers you empowering tools to manage your well-being.
Mend My Back is not Bootcamp or Heavy weight lifting. Don't get us wrong we're not against any of those activities. We're passionate about focusing on little moves that give big gains. Like the 80/20 rule. They're the low hanging fruit.
If you develop a strong core and good movement habits it will help you navigate 80% of life's demanding situations that require you to bend over, sit, walk and run, push, pull and lift.
The movements we repeat many times per day, 365 days per year, for 20 years are the ones that can prematurely hurt your joints and back when done incorrectly. Learn to train right in the first place to later move on to greater things!
Most of us have better things to do than to spend tons of time in health care facilities. By taking good care of our body, we limit the amount of time and money spent visiting these facilities thereby freeing up our resources to pursue other projects and dreams.
The most comprehensive Mend My Back Program, (Conditioning program), costs less than 3 visits with most of your health care professionals.
