Tom Pfeiffer - NYC Back Pain Coach

I'm on a mission to help others get out of chronic pain because I've suffered from chronic pain and I know what it feels like.


Almost a decade sitting at an office job had driven me to serious back pain. I went to doctors and they diagnosed me with degenerative disc disease and said I could only 'slow the decline'.

I got myself out of pain with the help of my studies and certifications, and over the last decade I have thousands of hours training clients in-person to get out of pain.


If you haven't already, check out part 1 of my Back Pain Series "What's wrong with my back?" to help you learn about your body.


I've read hundreds of books about back pain and I've learned from other's experience, my own experience, and the experience from helping hundreds of people. I've learned from the top fitness professionals in the world.


I've dedicated my life to helping others get out of chronic pain and I use my personal journey and decade of experience to help clients overcome chronic pain by focusing their efforts on what matters most.

MRI Lumbar Image Bulging Disc

Spinal Stenosis, Bulging Disc, Scoliosis

At age 16 a doctor diagnosed me with spinal stenosis, a bulging disc, and scoliosis using MRI images.


In 3rd grade is when it first started to feel like I couldn't sit still in my chair because my back was hurting.

Degenerative Disc Disease

At age 21 a doctor diagnosed me with Degenerative Disc Disease  based on x-ray images.


He told me to “avoid lifting weights, running, and jumping, and hopefully it won’t get worse.” I avoided the things he told me and my back pain stayed about the same.

Each time I visited a doctor they used expensive images to diagnose my pain, but not once did they ask about my lifestyle, teach me good posture, review my movement, or provide a specific cause for my pain.

Chronic Back Pain Solution

I’ve since learned that chronic pain is almost always made worse by one particular motion, posture, or load that the individual unknowingly repeats over and over.

I help clients overcome chronic pain by performing a functional diagnosis of their chronic pain and then following a clear action plan to increase their awareness and empower them to live pain-free.

If you’re currently in pain, get a diagnosis from your doctor. Follow their recommendation, and if you still have pain, book a consultation to work with me directly. I help clients build muscle, lose fat, increase strength, and get more mobile while addressing the specific causes of chronic pain.
