Company Summary

The MECA Back Institute is an organization committed to empowering people with and without back pain to take control of their back health through sound bio-mechanics, education and appropriate strength training. The first MECA Back Institute product is the MECA Wedge. The MECA Wedge was initially designed for patients suffering from lower back pain, but proved to do more than just enhance back health by taking core strengthening to a new level.

    Dr. Jeff Anderson
    Founder and CEO

    Based on his strong foundation in biomechanics and 15 years of experience in physical medicine, Dr. Anderson knew that abdominal strengthening exercises, when done traditionally, came with a biomechanical penalty to the spine. Strengthening the abdominals without penalizing the spine, and educating the masses on how to care for their backs became a primary focus. As a result,The MECA Back Institute was founded and the MECA Wedge was developed.
