In early 2000 Jesse Cannone was headed for surgery on his knee and one month before surgery a trainer did a compressive assessment on him like no other medical professional had done before. He indicated to Jesse that he had something called muscle imbalances and because of the imbalances the knee was not working properly.
So with some guidance and some specific corrective exercises his knee began to feel better and then healed itself. Jesse then wondered if that same principle could be applied to treating back pain and so he began to treat his personal training clients that way.
In 2003 Jesse asked Steve Hefferon to help him begin research. They then put their findings into a systematized process that could be put on DVD. And thus the first version of the system was created and released in January of 2004.
