McGill Method Certified Back Pain Practitioner: Nicola Folino

Oakville's Only Certified McGill Method Provider for Back Pain 

"Too many patients believe that performing some exercises will take their pain away, and they simply add them to their daily routine.  This is a mistake.

THE FIRST AND MOST CRITICAL STAGE IS TO REMOVE THE CAUSE OF PAIN."

- Dr. Stuart McGill - Low Back Disorders: Evidence-Based Prevention & Rehabilitation

The McGill Method is a back pain assessment and treatment approach based on scientific evidence compiled during 40 years of research and experimentation at the University of Waterloo in Canada by Dr. Stuart McGill.  

The evidence supports three major caveats to resolving back pain:


1. All back pain has a cause, it isn't arbitrary
2. Removing the cause of pain is essential to recovery

3. "Core" muscular endurance is protective of future back troubles

"The patient must be fully invested in understanding the cause of their pain and practice strategies throughout the day to avoid their pain triggers.  Then they must commit to the exercise approaches that suit their conditions."  

- Dr. Stuart McGill - Low Back Disorders: Evidence Based Prevention and Rehabilitation
