About YUR Back

The YUR Back exercise program, created by Dr. Christine Romani-Ruby combines therapeutic exercise, Pilates, and muscle balancing techniques to create a safe and effective work out for those recovering from low back pain.

Dr. Romani-Ruby incorporates exercises and movements from evidence based research that create a challenging work out without exacerbation of low back pain.

Strengthening the core, arms and legs, the YUR Back program also improves posture, can be done with or without equipment, and is even safe for those with osteoporosis or scoliosis.

  • I really enjoyed your presentation and all the various moves and exercises related to spinal stenosis relief and strengthening. I learned a lot and you're a great teacher. I love how you integrate your PT background with Pilates and body movement and muscle relationship to postural orientation. I'm excited to try some of exercises on even my regular clients.
