Upright Health is dedicated to helping people eliminate the fear, anxiety, and physical limitations that come with chronic pain.
Our goal is to help people understand how the body works at its most fundamental level.
On our popular YouTube channel and blog, we make musculoskeletal research accessible and understandable. We explain the philosophies and faults of orthopedic surgeries so people can make better choices about aches, pains, and daily life. We lay out the foundations of functional training so you can achieve freedom in your body.
We strive to share all that we learn so that the whole world has the opportunity to move right and feel right.

His own battle with chronic pain from the age of 16 in his feet, knees, hips, back, shoulders, elbows, forearms, wrists, hands, and head gives him a uniquely thorough understanding of musculoskeletal pain, the ways in which it can undermine an entire life, and the mental and physical hurdles that keep people from getting out of it.
