"We are very grateful to all of the clients that we have served and are thankful for the opportunity to improve their pain with our education and products," said Mark. "Also, we appreciate the strong relationships we have established with the medical community in Louisville and are able to be a continuum of their care," added Jen.

Today, Relax The Back has nearly 100 successful stores located across the US and Canada and helps countless customers live healthier and happier lives through the best products in ergonomic care.
