Frequently Asked Questions

How do BACKCoach sessions work?

Once you’ve registered, you’ll complete intake forms to provide the background information required for us to proceed. This also helps us to make the very best use of our time together. We suggest that you have been medically screened and cleared for movement/exercise prior to beginning.

Next you’ll schedule a time for us to meet by phone; we typically meet three times per month but can work around your individual needs. Our first session with take approximately 75 minutes, as this is an extended intake session.

Subsequent sessions will be 40-55 minutes and include goal check-in and discussion of new BACKCoach material (I’ll send you written information prior to our session for your review.) You’ll then set goals goals for the upcoming week that serve to implement the new information, in addition to previous and any other desired goals. We’ll also periodically check in with your vision and 3-month goals to see if any adjustments need to be made as you progress.

How does this work if we don’t meet in person?

Very well, actually. Working by phone is very effective as well as convenient for your schedule. There are a couple of topics that we may supplement with video and/or webcam, and webcam sessions are always available upon request.

Is this a “canned” program?

Far from it. BACKCoach is based upon many years of training, experience and, learning from years of going through the standard approaches available to relieve back pain. BACKCoach was created because of the lack of a place to get this important and effective information. This is a program based on the root causes of back pain and the most effective methods to have a healthy back and return to a full, limitless life.

What kind of information is covered in the BACKCoach program?

BACKCoach’s approach is to help people to understand what really causes back pain and to take steps to reverse these factors. With BACKCoach, you will learn why the ‘triggering event’ (you may call this your injury or when you hurt your back) is no longer the source of your pain, how the cycle of pain is keeping you in pain and how to reverse this cycle, and what led to the pain in the first place and how to address each true contributing factor so that you can put the habits and actions in place in your life that work for you.

How do I get started?

Simply complete the registration form and Mary will email you to send you preliminary forms and to arrange your first session. It’s that simple! We work around your busy schedule to find a time that works best for you.

Will my information remain confidential?

Absolutely. In fact, part of the registration materials includes my confidentiality agreement to you. No information from any session, registration materials, or even that you are a client will be disclosed. BACKCoach sessions are a place to learn, discuss and plan, and confidentiality is of the utmost importance. Of course, many BACKCoach clients choose to provide testimonials, and that is an option that you will have at your complete discretion.
