The Back School

The Council on Professional Standards for Kinesiotherapy is pleased to announce pre-approved CEUs from The Back School. The Back School consists of Ergonomics experts who provide training, live workshops, onsite consulting and ergonomic products to employers, healthcare, safety, and wellness professionals for over 35 Years.

The Back School of Atlanta was founded by Stanley V. Paris, PH.D., P.T. and Ronald W. Porter, P.T., CEAS in 1980 as an outreach of the Atlanta Back Clinic. The business name was changed to “The Back School” in 2012 and is still located in Atlanta, Georgia with Ron Porter as its Director.

The founders initially formed The Back School to treat workers’ comp patients suffering from numerous musculoskeletal disorders. The Back School evolved into an ergonomics-focused company centered on back injury prevention in the ’80s (even before OSHA’s guidelines were developed) and over the past 35+ years has become renowned for conveying ergonomics expertise through online training courses, live workshops and onsite consulting engagements.
