franchise relax the back

30 years ago, Virginia Rogers had a vision. Two years after the first Relax The Back location opened, she bought the store and began to transform the business into what it is today. What started as one retail store in a small house in Austin, TX has grown to 90+ stores across the United States and Canada.

After finding relief from chronic back pain with the help of Relax The Back products, Virginia wanted to share her knowledge to help others live pain-free. Since the early days of our first location, many franchisees have started as customers, like our first franchise owner, professional basketball player and former Antonio Spur, Coby Detrick, who found relief using our products and wanted to help others find the same relief.

Built on the McKenzie Method of neck and back pain, we truly believe in patients taking control of their spinal health through self-treatment. We pride ourselves in being more than a retail store but a place to provide solutions to your pain and discomforts. Through individualized attention, we pin-point specific pain relief needs to find the proper solution. At Relax The Back, we become a partner with our customers to help them find relief.

“With continuous follow up we make sure they are happy with the solutions and focus on other areas of their day that we can help with other products to continue their relief.” – Bob Duncan, Birmingham, AL

Often seen as an extension of care by physicians and physical therapists, our ties with the medical community have strengthened our ability to provide product solutions to improve our customers’ outcomes.

“’Go to Relax The Back and let them help you find a good chair.’ That’s it. We are trusted.” – April Vance, Nashville, TN

During the month of May, we are celebrating our franchise owners and their businesses who continue to help our communities live a pain-free lifestyle.

We are also celebrating #DreamSmallBiz during National Small Business Week.

National Small Business Week is a time to reflect and recognize thesmallbiz contributions of America’s small business owners and entrepreneurs. We are proud to be one of the many small businesses that are the heartbeat of our local neighborhoods!

Ending Spine-Related Disability with North American Spine Foundation

North American Spine FoundationWe are excited to announce our recent partnership with the North American Spine Foundation (NASF).

Recent studies have shown spine-related impairment is the leading cause of disability in the United States. Spine-related disabilities have a greater impact on American health than lung cancer, diabetes, and preterm birth.

Here are a few important facts regarding spinal disorders provided by NASF:

  • $28B = Annual cost to US Employers due to productivity losses for spine-related disability
  • 30% = The risk a 20 year old has of becoming disabled before the age of 65
  • 71% = Risk of eventually reaching poverty level, compared to peers, once a patient becomes disabled
  • 23% = The average amount of annual earnings lost for all disability claimants, even after subsidies

At Relax The Back we believe in patients taking control of their spinal health by stretching, strengthening, and supporting their spine throughout the day. Through our core values and product solutions, and the NASF’s mission to sponsor education, research, and advocacy in this field, we can work towards preventing functional decline and achieve a 10% reduction in spine-related disability in the U.S. by 2025.

Together we aim to emphasize restoring function, maintaining mobility despite a spinal disorder and associated symptomology, and preventing individual financial loss. With education and the proper ergonomics, consumers can become one step closer to achieving these goals.

Visit North American Spine Foundation for more information about their programs and initiatives. If you are suffering from spinal disorders and looking for relief, visit your local Relax The Back location to speak with one of our trained specialists who can help you find solutions. When it comes to relieving daily discomforts and improving home, office, and sleep comfort, we’ve got your back.

Relax The Back Celebrates 30 Years

30 years ago, in 1984, the first Relax The Back location opened in a small house in Austin, TX. What started as one retail store has grown into nearly 100 franchise locations across the United States and Canada. Built on physical therapist Robin McKenzie’s philosophy of back and neck self-care, Relax The Back believes in patients taking control of their spinal health by strengthening, stretching, and supporting the spine throughout the day.

In 1986, Virginia Rogers bought Relax The Back and began to transform the business into what it is today. As an avid traveler who experienced back pain daily, she did not want to let pain control her life. After using Relax The Back products, she found relief and took control of her chronic back pain. She wanted to share this knowledge to help others live pain-free. Many franchisees started as customers who found relief using our products and want to provide this relief to others.

Relax The Back began franchising in 1989, when professional basketball player and former Antonio Spur, Coby Dietrick, became the first franchise owner.  Being an NBA player, he experienced constant back pain due to his height and career in basketball. He too found relief and was transformed by the Relax The Back lifestyle.

One of first stores in Austin, TX was formerly a women’s boutique.

Today, a core value and top priority has been maintained since we first opened our doors – providing individualized attention to all of our customers in order to pin-point what their specific pain relief needs are and help them find the proper solutions. Our ties with the medical community have strengthened our ability to provide product solutions to improve our customers’ outcomes. Through proper ergonomics, neutral posture support, and education customers can find daily relief from pain and discomforts. 

To celebrate 30 years of providing ‘round the clock relief we are giving away 30 prizes over a 30-week period in our “30 for 30” Facebook Giveaway.

Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter for promotions and tips to relieve daily discomfort. Or visit your local Relax The Back store to speak with one of our trained specialists.

30 for 30 Facebook Giveaway

Since opening our first location 30 years ago, Relax The Back has become a leader in back and neck pain relief solutions. We owe much of our success to you, our loyal customers, for your insistence on quality, service, and integrity.
