Get my horse to rock back on his haunches

I have a horse who I'm working to get him off his forehand and back onto his haunches.
He's very heavily balanced on his forehand naturally, and has muscle wasting from being off for illness for months so he is very unwilling (mean often, but he's a temperamental horse) to rock back and move properly.
This makes him awkward while moving and definitely over fences, and makes it much more difficult for me to ride.
ANY SUGGESTIONS?~
That's a recent video-
Thank you!~

First, let me say I lost patience with the video and only watched most of the first 2 1/2 minutes. It was taking forever to load. What I saw was a horse who seemed fairly comfortable at the trot, when you let him relax a bit and lengthen. At the canter-nose was in the air, back hollow and ears pinned. My first impression was that he has back pain, and could benefit from a chiro. He just looked miserable.

He has a chiro. Appointment every two months
Its honestly more attitude then discomfort. (I realize every one says that)
