I have had serious neck stenosis issues for years and to put it simply: Jeremy James’s BackForever protocol has fixed me. A combination of neck and back strengthening exercises, patiently rolled out over time, has made the difference.

-Bob Hurst, NY, former Vice Chairman, Goldman Sachs

I am a mother of four and love to exercise and stay active. Surprisingly, a lot of my exercises and activities were contributing to my recurring back problems. Jeremy quickly identified and cut the harmful exercises out of my routine and introduced safe alternatives. He also investigated things I would never have thought of which ended up being contributors to my back problem, including my mattress and the way I rode my bike in spin class. Now following Jeremy’s rules, I am almost always completely pain free. When I do have the occasional mild flare-up, I know how to end it myself thanks to the knowledge I got from Jeremy’s careful teaching. I am more active than I was 10 years ago.

-Juliette Ferrell, Aspen, CO

When I found Jeremy, I was recovering from a herniated disc in my lower back and in quite a bit of pain. Through our work together and the expertise and exercises he has provided, I now have a daily maintenance program for my lower back that has kept me pain free and has me keeping an active lifestyle. I couldn’t recommend Jeremy any higher for anyone who is dealing with low back issues. Complete, comprehensive care second to none.

-Frank Newman, Kansas City, MO

DR. JAMES ANSWERS TWO IMPORTANT QUESTIONS:

HOW CAN ONE BACK PROGRAM WORK FOR EVERYONE?Isn't everyone's back pain unique?

There are major commonalities about how we move. Those with back pain tend to bend, twist, lift, sit, stand, work and play in the same harmful patterns, which damage and breakdown your spine’s natural support system: your core. The BackForever program works for over 80% of back and neck pain sufferers because most back and neck pain is a result of these everyday behaviors. BackForever teaches the correct ways to move for lifelong pain-free activity.

BackForever begins with self-assessments to determine the best starting exercises to achieve instant, short-term relief. Then, the real work begins. Learn how to change harmful behaviors for permanent relief.

HOW CAN STREAMED VIDEOS SUCCEED?Don't I need an in-person trainer?

YOU are in charge of your recovery. Through my years of experience as a director of one of the leading American back pain clinics working with hundreds of men and women and studying the latest research, I have developed a science-based, proven system that’s effective and efficient. Following our clear, simple instructions and demonstrations, you can change your behaviors and rebuild your back and body for lifelong back pain relief.

Plus, video presents a vast advantage: it’s here whenever you need it. Go at your own pace until you master techniques. Review whenever you need a refresher. There’s no magical pill, shot, chiropractic adjustment, or stretch to permanently eliminate back pain. You have to change your lifestyle and behaviors. BackForever puts you in control and out of pain.

Before beginning this or any program, we strongly recommend you consult with your physician.

  • THE PERFECT MONTH IN DETAIL

    • + -

      DAY ONE

      • Perform your self-assessment at home and immediately get started on the path to a pain-free back in under two hours.
      • Watch new member video and read written instruction to learn about the behaviors (posture, movements, work habits, sports) that cause, prolong, and/or exacerbate back and neck pain. Watch videos that show you the detailed movements related to the specific activities that are prolonging your back pain.
      • Learn pressure point techniques and stretches from detailed videos and illustrations to immediately relieve or lessen your back pain.
      • Learn the concept of neutral spine, how to find it, and how to use the core to support it while moving. Work along with the video tutorial at your own pace, in your own home.
      • Take a written and activity-based self-assessment to determine your appropriate starting point in the program, unique to your base level of strength and mobility.
    • + -

      WEEK ONE

      • Learn about your specific spine condition.
      • Learn what movements and habits are unique to your lifestyle and condition and should be avoided.. Combination of video and reading.
      • Begin basic exercises at your own unique starting point and perform them every day from now on. (These exercises take about 15 minutes a day and eventually become a daily routine that can be done anywhere, without equipment. These exercises have been clinically shown to maintain enough tone and endurance in the core muscles to support the spine in everyday life. Studies also show they must be done daily, or nearly daily, to maintain this base level of tone and endurance. Why? Because of most of our relatively sedentary Western lives.)
      • Watch videos and read articles about changing daily behaviors to avoid pain triggers: sitting, squatting, lifting, sleeping, sex.
    • + -

      WEEK TWO

      • Continue daily basic exercises for 15 minutes a day.
      • Continue trigger point work and stretching for 5 min.
      • Learn squat and split squat pattern to begin correctly getting up from a seated position and begin to lift correctly. Videos and written text/illustrations. Length of time spent depends on how quickly you decide you can go.
      • Start gluteal muscle track to build strength in the buttocks to help with lifting by watching videos and reading text. About 3 min each.
      • Continue any relevant condition-specific exercises.
      • Depending on how quickly you want to go, expect all tasks to take 30 minutes to one hour per day.
    • + -

      • If ready, take a progress quiz to determine whether to move to next level.
