Who Are We?

Spinal Experts You Can Trust

 

  • BackPain.online has been developed by real-world clinicians.
  • We have run a practice for 25 years, and continue to treat people in clinic every day.
  • We have helped more than 10,000 people cope with back pain.
  • We do this by showing them how to help themselves, and this approach led to the development of BackPain.online.

Graeme Rider

Co-Founder

After 25 years of helping people with back pain, Graeme has seen the best results when people know how to help themselves.

He wanted to design online therapy that would be like having an expert on hand whenever you need it.

And that’s exactly what BackPain.online does. Digital health has truly arrived.

Toby Pollard-Smith

Co-Founder

Toby is an ex-professional dancer. He had years of treatment for injuries, and this inspired him to help others.

Unsurprisingly, he has first-hand experience of the value of self-management.

An important aspect of his work is showing people how to support themselves and Toby is excited to make this widely available.

Using Technology to Help Back Pain Patients

 

Along with helping people in their day-to-day activities, Graeme and Toby also work with professional athleteselite sportspeople and performing artists.

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 technology, we take everything we do in clinic and bring it to you online – it's a digital centre of excellence.
