A Health Coaching Program for Chronic Back Pain


Learn why your back hurts and what do.

Then, get back to your life


YES, I want a Healthy Back!

Never say "I Can’t"

One of the most difficult parts of having back pain is not participating in the activities you enjoy. When you learn how saying ‘no’ is actually contributing to your pain, and what you can do about it, you’ll return to participating in the activities you enjoy. Never say “I can’t” again.

Lasting relief

You’ve probably had many treatments for your back, and some provided relief – for a while. BACKCoach addresses the reasons your back hurts, leading to long-term relief, so you’ll feel like you’ve never had back pain.

Coach included

There’s a reason it’s called BACKCoach! While it’s great to learn what’s causing the pain, you will need to take action to see results. Utilizing effective behavior change principles, we guide you, step-by-step, through successfully applying the concepts.

YOU are in charge

BACKCoach is neither a treatment or ‘cookie-cutter’ program. You’ll learn each factor that is contributing to the pain, then you decide the best way to apply it into your life.

BACKCoach is…

Root cause.

Most approaches to back pain involve identifying a damaged part and trying to repair it. Unfortunately, the real, underlying cause of the pain is missed. By working at the root-cause level, you can achieve lasting relief.


If you only address one component, you’re missing a lot. By learning all of the reasons your back hurts, you can make the changes needed for complete relief.


It turns out, many of the reasons your back hurts relates to how you take care of yourself. So, an added benefit of relieving the pain is the many benefits of improved overall health.

I don’t even think about my back any more and am amazed by what I have learned.

I used to say ‘I can’t do that’ and now I simply decide when I am going to fit things into my schedule. I can now go back to being me. BACKCoach has been a wonderful journey and it has opened my mind to the possibilities. In the beginning, I wondered how my back could get better by talking on the phone with someone.

I learned that BACKCoach is a process that makes so much sense and step-by-step I applied the principles into my life and I now have no back pain at all!

“Very knowledgeable and enthusiastic”

Hi Mary!

I just wanted to say thank you so, so much for everything. I absolutely cannot believe that my back does not hurt any more – especially seeing how I was in so much pain when we first met.  You are awesome!

Thank you, thank you!

“I liked everything about this workshop”

Mary has made a significant difference in the way I approach back pain. I started working with Mary because of our mutual interest in posture as it relates to back pain.

During our first conversation, I discovered that Mary possesses a wealth of information both from her personal experience, her career as an ergonomist and her lifetime of research and that the postural component was just one of the contributing factors. Her knowledge and personal experience resonated with me and has allowed me to approach my own chronic pain in a different way. Activities such as swimming and golf which typically caused pain releasing protective factors and tension in my back muscles has allowed me to pursue my favorite activities with confidence.

I am grateful to have met Mary.

“Mary is very personable. She is warm and related very well with the audience.”

Hi Mary, I have been thinking of you recently, with such gratitude to you for curing my back pain. I am pain free and on the occasion that I start to feel a twinge, which is very rare, I correct my posture and forget about it and it is gone. I have been walking a lot this fall. It has been a beautiful one this year, sunny and warm with lots of gorgeous color. All the best to you. Thank you so much for what you did for me. Fondly, K

“Practical and applicable”

After several back injuries, over 10 years of chronic pain, and a lot of expensive, time-consuming and sometimes painful treatments from a variety of specialists, I was introduced to Mary Williams and her BACKCoach program by a work colleague. I was truly, truly amazed — within a few months, my pain disappeared!! I am now able to do things I thought were gone to me and actually feel good! Thank goodness I found this program because I really thought I was going to have to live with the pain forever and had about given up. The BACKCoach program taught me non-invasive, practical tools I did not know were available and set me on a course of recovery. I never realized that there was a way to live that would promote back health. I now look forward to doing things instead of making excuses as to why I cannot do them. Nor do I dread how my back will feel later. I’m thrilled — I feel like I’ve gotten my life back and then some! I highly recommend the BACKCoach program to anyone suffering from back pain. You won’t regret it!”
