Meet Brick!

 

We’d love for you to meet Brick – one of our very satisfied Backfit patients. Brick’s story is a testament to the power of an educated patient. Brick came into Backfit just 8 weeks ago with a problem in his lower back that was causing him a great deal of pain and keeping him from the activities he loves.

Backscore is a comprehensive assessment that will provide you with the ultimate report card for your spinal health. We analyze your clinical findings in combination with lifestyle factors that also impact your spinal health. This gives you a complete picture and a way to actually measure your health!
