Very interesting. Thanks for posting this. Have you read his book, "Back Mechanic"?

Yes, I'm reading it now.

I have begun the program outlined in the book (as "prescribed" for my problem) :
* stopped doing my resistance training exercises that had a lot of twist to the spine
* stopped doing what McGill calls the "silly stretches"
* stopped doing the Scorpion stretch
* trying not to twist or flex the spine in daily activities
* trying to walk every day
* training the core w McGills "big 3"

I ordered the book and should get it next week. My lower back is acting up now. It is very frustrating and I've been dealing with it for most of my life. I watched some youtube videos on the big 3 and started to do them this morning. I hope that takes care of it. My goal is to definitely not have any back pain when I go to camp in February.
