Back Pain Care Starts Here

  • Employees: 6


BackerNation is a digital health and wellness company developing innovative products and services to empower people with information, tools, and resources to overcome their back pain and spine conditions.

BackerNation was founded by Jay Resio, a Pittsburgh-based entrepreneur. He herniated the same disc four times, leading to four back surgeries with the most recent being an artificial disc replacement. He always says, “If it wasn't for my back issues, I would have never created BackerNation. And if it wasn’t for BackerNation, I would have never overcome my back pain and feel so good."

For Consumers and Patients
BackerNation equips consumers and patients with back and spine issues to become knowledgeable self-advocates to make informed decisions about their specific conditions and situation. We want consumers and patients to get the answers and treatments they need and deserve to lead productive, pain-free and enjoyable lives.

For Service Providers
BackerNation provides surgeons, doctors, chiropractors, physical therapists, massage therapists and all other service providers related to back and spine with innovative tools to connect with patients and share their expertise and knowledge.

BackerNation's ultimate goal is to improve patient outcomes, while decreasing health care costs.
