“Golfers spend endless money on equipment, golf lessons and stupid gadgets. The best investment I ever made was the least costly: I’ve invested in a strong and healthy core with GolfForever to help my game. Since working with Dr. James, I’ve never felt better and I can play golf without even thinking about my back. I will continue using his techniques because I know it’s the right prescription for a healthy golf back — forever.”
“I am a 74-year-old male with osteopenia and stenosis of c-1 to c-5 (diagnosed by the Veterans Administration). My weight is 195 and my height is 6’ 4’’ and have always worked out and done some cardio (went to state in track in high school two years). Between 43 years as a banker, poor posture starting in high school and reading 3-4 hours a day beginning when I retired five years ago — my neck become stiff and even stiffer 4 years ago. The VA tried physical therapy and eventually sent me to the West Texas Rebab Center (a very well-respected rehab center) for help. They eventually told me that I would always have a stiff neck. I have never been one to take no as a dead end and I found you on the internet. I was a loyal follower of “Younger Next Year” and at one point almost attended the retreat in Aspen. I found your program and after reading all the orientation data — decided to work on the BackForever program due to the logic of the program and your connection with Chris Crowley and Henry Lodge. I am elated to report that after working on your program for ten weeks that my neck flexibility has improved dramatically and intend to keep up the pace and look forward to starting on GolfForever, as I now can move my neck to see the line to putt. I am forever in your debt and appreciate your work with neck and back issues.”
Dr. Jeremy James is the coauthor, along with Chris Crowley, of the much anticipated “The Younger Next Year Back Book.” He was pulled into the world of back pain care through his own experience with chronic, debilitating back pain as a young man. His passion for sports with high rates of injury such as skateboarding, surfing, snowboarding and mountain biking led to serious back pain early in life. His journey to healing himself culminated in the development of his unique 5-Step BackForever protocol that he has used to help hundreds of clients end their back and neck pain.
Dr. James is the founder and former director of the Aspen Club Back Institute in Aspen, Colorado. His clinic specialized in care for chronic back pain sufferers who have failed to get results through other means. He can count Olympic and professional athletes, Fortune 500 CEOs, and regular, hardworking people among his many success stories. Since then, Dr. James has compiled and digitized his protocol into the BackForever program so that people everywhere can get the same world-class care, instruction and education that have benefited his clients in his Aspen clinic.
He earned his undergraduate degree from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and his DC from the University of Western States in Portland, Oregon. He is also a Certified Strength and Condition Specialist through The National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA).
Dr. James operates a pro bono program for U.S. military veterans with back pain. He is proud to offer all veterans free access to BackForever.
He currently lives in Colorado with his wife and young son. He still enjoys snowboarding and mountain biking — free of pain.

Why would I pay for golf videos when I can just get them on Youtube® or other sites for free?
Two words: programming and expertise. GolfForever is a carefully constructed, structured program — not just a collection of exercise videos. Two experts in human biomechanics have taken their knowledge and applied it to the unique physics of golf, resulting in this comprehensive program. The key to building the ultimate golf body with a healthy spine and joints is a progressive program that starts with the fundamentals and builds slowly in a careful, methodical way. Bill Fabrocini and Dr. James first teach you to establish a strong core and powerful, mobile hips before working outward to establish strength and mobility everywhere you need it. The pros didn’t get where they are today by doing random sets of exercises or watching a few videos online. They have coaches who construct programs for them based on the unique requirements of golf and the latest scientific research. Now you can have the same structured training program that the pros get. We don’t attempt to teach you to swing, but we make sure you have the best version of the most important piece of equipment in a golfer’s bag: a strong body. All the golf lessons in the world don’t add up to much if you don’t have the best body to power your swing.
What could I possibly learn from GolfForever that a pro can’t teach me?
Dr. James and Bill Fabrocini don’t teach you to swing, putt or chip. They leave that to the professional golfers. What they do offer is expertise in the human body and in physical training. From their combined knowledge of the spine, joints and athletic training, these two biomechanic experts have developed the most comprehensive training program to enhance any instruction you’ve received from pro golfers. Having strength, mobility and endurance in the right places is just as important for a good swing and long playing life as any instructions taken from a golf pro. If you haven’t trained your body with this program, you’re only reaching half of your potential.
Regarding the back pain relief part of this program: How can one back pain program work for everyone? My back is unique — isn’t this just a cookie cutter program?
The BackForever program (included with your GolfForever membership) is able to work for 95% of candidates because most back and neck pain is the result of two causes: our everyday behaviors and the resulting breakdown in the body’s natural support system for the spine (your core). These behaviors — the way we sit, stand, move and live — are very similar across all Americans. Those with back pain tend to bend, twist, lift, sit, stand, work and play in the same harmful patterns, which 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. It is based on their own comfort level and our recommendations derived from the information in their self-assessments. First, BackForever shows you how to give yourself instant, short-term relief, Then, the real work begins and you’ll learn how to change your harmful behaviors to make that relief permanent. We teach you to:
Regarding the back pain relief part of this program: How can this possibly work without being in the same room as the doctor?
Like any activity or exercise program, we strongly recommend you consult with your physician before beginning this program to ensure you’re healthy enough to participate. But the path to a healthy back and neck truly starts and ends with you. No one can cure your pain for you. You have to do the work. That is why 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 by taking a pill or getting a shot. Don’t get us wrong, modern medicine is remarkable at fixing many things. But for some conditions, this approach just doesn’t work. Much like heart disease, back pain is a condition where there are no easy, long-lasting fixes. You have to change your lifestyle and the underlying behavior to prevent or reverse the damage that’s already been done. Most of you have probably experienced short-term relief from a shot, pill, chiropractic adjustment or stretch given to you by a healthcare provider. But what happened after that? For many, the pain just came back. Those providers cannot change your behavior and habits. You are in charge of your recovery. That’s why you can do this program without physically seeing a doctor. When Dr. James first started practice, his number one goal was to make his clients self-sufficient in as little time as possible. Over the years, he became very adept at getting his clients to take care of themselves in almost no time. He quickly realized that education — not manual therapy or drugs — was the key to long term success. After a year or so in practice, he 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 his years of experience and study of the latest research, Dr. James has 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 and review sections as often as you like. Go at your own pace until you master it all, changing your behaviors, and rebuilding your back and body for lifelong back pain relief.
Dr. Jeremy James and Chris Crowley have written a comprehensive guide to ending back pain based on Dr. James’ 5-step protocol in the highly anticipated “The Younger Next Year Back Book.”
The original “Younger Next Year” book — written by Chris and the late New York internist and Columbia University Medical Center professor, Henry S. Lodge M.D. — has sold over two million copies in 23 languages. Their basic premise: Behavioral change (especially exercise) can put off 70% of aging until close to the end of life, and completely eliminate 50% of major accidents and illnesses (such as heart disease, diabetes and most cancers). For many, the books have become nothing short of life-changers, and the series has developed a cult-like following for people over 40.
After doing a number of “Younger Next Year” retreats together, Dr. James approached Chris with the notion of doing a serious back book. Like The Younger Next Year series, Dr. James’ 5-Step BackForever protocol — with its 80% success rate — was also heavily behavior-based and life-changing for those fortunate enough to try it. The idea was to write a solid, science-based book on Dr. James’ protocol that Chris would help to make readable and motivational like the original “Younger Next Year” book.
Or, as Chris tells it, “Jeremy’s young and smart, and I’m old and funny. Together, we thought we could tell this very complex story in a way that is sound, but also readable and almost fun. We believe we can get you to tackle your back pain — the only way that’s really going to work — by changing your behavior and developing a serious, lifelong exercise habit. It might sound hard, but it’s way easier than living with back pain. The book spells out why it makes sense and exactly what to do.”
“THIS IS A GREAT BOOK FOR BACK PAIN SUFFERERS AND THEIR CAREGIVERS ALIKE.
THE GUIDANCE OFFERED WILL ALLOW THE AFFLICTED TO GET ON A PATH TO RECOVERY AND WELLNESS ... TO GET BACK TO WHAT THEY LOVE TO DO.”
