“Experts estimate that up to 80% of the population will experience back pain at some time in their lives.” -Neurologic Clinics Journal.

“Nearly 3 out of 5 truck drivers experience Musculoskeletal pain or discomfort while on the job, and most factors are “largely modifiable” -researchers at the University of Waterloo.

“Back pain and musculoskeletal injuries occur nearly four times more often among long-haul truck drivers than among other workers” -Bureau of Labor Statistics.

“A stretching approach focused on strengthening of the lower back and abdominals has been shown to drastically reduce the need for surgery and greatly reduces pain as a result. “

“I’ve been a victim of back pain for years. I was diagnosed with a hip impingement 5 years ago and was tossed around in the healthcare system in a cycle of physical therapy, MRI’s, doctor appointments, and muscle relaxers. I got no relief. I didn’t know where to turn. I finally decided to take matters into my own hands and researched movements that would help me get out of pain for good. All of these movements are things that helped me get out of pain and move freely again. Backed by science, research, and best practices in physical therapy settings, I know they can help you too.”-Matt Hancock (Functional Freedom Program creator, Certified Exercise Physiologist, and Driver Health and Fitness Coordinator).
