After 25 years’ experience in helping people with back pain, I see the best results when we show people how to help themselves. I wanted to design online therapy that would be like having an expert on hand whenever people need it. And that’s exactly what this does. It also means we can reach more people than just those we can see in clinic. Digital health has truly arrived.

I’m an ex-professional dancer. I had years of treatment myself. And this inspired me to learn how to treat others. I have first-hand experience of the importance of self-management when it comes to back pain. One of the most important aspects of my work is showing people how to support themselves properly and I’m excited to make this widely available to more people.

Cutting-edge technology


Along with helping people in their day-to-day activities, Graeme and Toby also work with professional athletes and elite sportspeople.

Since 2014 this has included providing musculoskeletal care to a leading Formula 1 race team. Their experience of treating them both in person and supporting them remotely helped form the idea of how to extend remote, expert help to others.

So Graeme and Toby developed a programme where they could help many more people.

BackPain.Online was born.

Working with the latest cutting-edge technology, we take everything we do in clinic and bring it to you online – it is a digital, multi-discipline centre of excellence.
