Backauthority's mission is to help you manage your back pain on your own, with natural methods, from home.
Leon Turetsky - Founder & CEO.
Certified Personal Trainer (NASM-CPT) And Professional Ballroom Dancer.
Role: Visionary, editor and content creator
Leon is a Professional Ballroom dancer and a long time back pain sufferer. Whilst traveling to dance competitions he found himself often treating his back pain on his own by doing regular stretching, exercising, using self massage tools and more. Leon found that often times he could achieve the same if not better results from treating his own back pain from his home (or hotel room) because he could focus on the precise spot he was having pain at.
"I created Backauthority.com to help others treat their own back pain from their homes using natural methods. By working together with chiropractors and other back specialists we hope to educate and empower the individual (you!) to take action on their own and find some relief".
