Back Mechanic Author event posterFaculty, staff, students and the general public are invited to join Professor Stuart McGill on March 29, 2016 at the UW bookstore at 4 p.m. for a book signing and discussion of his new book, Back Mechanic.  

Based on 30 years of evidence, Back Mechanic guides the reader through a self-assessment to obtain a precise diagnosis of their specific pain triggers. Based on the assessment Back Mechanic then guides the reader through the steps to remove the cause, followed by a progressive program to build a foundation for pain-free activity. Rich illustrations enhance the implementation of this step by step method.

He has written more than 400 scientific publications that address lumbar function, low back injury mechanisms, investigation of tissue loading during rehabilitation programs, and the formulation of work-related injury avoidance strategies.
