Simon Sheridan

If I breathe out and push my abdominal muscles against the front and the back and hold it for 10 to 15 seconds I get a really good exercise.

By doing that daily over a 6 week period, I have found that the pinching feeling of sciatica that I had on my left side has remarkably gone down. I’m quite excited about the future I have now that I am feeling fully healed in body and mind.

Following a work related injury, Jarrod lived with regular pain and a rotated hip. Once he began working with the MacBac, his hips were back in place and the back pain completely eliminated.

The MacBac Remedial is two carefully designed contoured plates, that wrap about your lower trunk to provide your abdominals with genuine static contraction resistance.

This simple set of rigid plates enables you to exercise your abdominal muscles, independently. This means zero spinal motion.

The MacBac Remedial is a rigid exercise platform for the abdominals and core strength muscles that govern lower back stability. MACBAC exercising eliminates lower back pain because it activates and rejuvenates core strength muscles.

My name is Tom McKernan and I constructed the original MacBac Remedial to solve MY back problems and it worked.  I then showed my friends and again it worked by solving THEIR back problems.

Now I am showing it to YOU! Che. Hema thought it was so terrific he even composed a song!

The MacBac Remedial treats the cause to produce lower back pain relief.

The MacBac Remedial is unique, non -electrical, non invasive and is portable. It is a static contraction exercise device that physically supports your lower back, as you effectively exercise your abdominals.

Does building profound core strength gradients, with zero spinal and leg movement appeal to you? It should! Exit fragile hips and enter firm, self-support!

That’s MacBac remedial exercising, the supreme abdominal exerciser. Static contraction exercising that’s so simple. And it works!

Within two days of using the S.A.M. , the pain was almost gone.
