After specializing in back pain as a biomechanist, ergonomist, trainer and program developer, and touring the country working with top professionals in all areas dealing with the study and treatment of backs, Mary hurt her own back in an automobile accident.
After 14 years of pain, she undertook an intense study to understand the true, underlying nature of back pain and recovery. What she learned in getting her health back was surprising, simple and is often completely overlooked.
Mary helps people with chronic back pain find relief from the pain and return to a life without limits through practical information, BACKCoaching, training, and ongoing support.
