“Thank you Brian for giving me hope when I was at wits end.

I was a little skeptical at first after visiting numerous physios and doctors after so many years of acute lower back pain and general discomfort.

After about 4 weeks of tailored rehabilitation exercises I was starting to gain pain free movement and my confidence started to grow exponentially. I was really impressed with the results after a short period of time. I’ve continued working with Brian since and am and am back in the water surfing and playing sport. An absolute result.

His approach made me aware of my old flaws and bad habits but provided the understanding of my pain providing me the fundamentals for a healthy back however utilising the right tools and specific pain free tailored exercises to over engineer a stronger back.

There is no universal cause or cure for back pain therefore a cure that leads to success for me might be different for you, however, Brian’s focus and knowledge will help you find your own pain triggers and match them to the treatment that’s right for you.
I am now 100% confident that if I have a relapse or lower back flare up, I have the right tools and exercises to alleviate the pain in a matter of days.

Anybody with prolonged lower back pain issues should have some scans and take them along to Brian. He’s not a miracle worker but does have a unique approach to restore a pain free back. You’ll have to put in some hard work but you’ll be pleasantly surprised and reaping the rewards.

He’s a great guy to work with and patient but will push you when needed to get the best out of you. I would wholeheartedly recommend Brian to anybody with back pain issues.”

“The week I turned 40, my back showed me I was now ‘old’ and plunged me into immeasurable pain………

It had never given a twinge despite the best efforts racing & crashing motorbikes (road & enduro), lifting heavy things, jumping off everything, running, training, working hard & generally engaging in an active life. It scared me that my activities of choice may no longer be possible.

The scans showed some damage to the lower back & this was causing sciatica down one leg & seriously limiting movement.

I visited a number of Physio’s over a 2 year period & basically bought shares in Nurofen. The Physio & Nurofen would reduce the pain to a just bearable level, but it was always there. Competing in dirt bike events and general training were experiences in how much pain could be endured.

In December 2015, I saw an advert for Brian’s services & still being in regular pain, I got in contact.

Brian introduced me to a range of exercises & stretches that served to balance my body, strengthen the protective muscles, increase my flexibility, take pressure off the back & limit further damage.

Within a month, I had days with no pain. Within 2 months I was integrating the concepts into regular training & 5 months in, we’re starting to work on exercises to really strengthen the area. If that’s not impressive enough, my wife reckons she can now see abs!

I’m living with almost no back pain and cannot express what a difference this makes to everyday life. I can think more clearly, be active with my kids & able to ride, jump & lift with limited impact.

If you have back pain, Brian is an expert! You won’t regret it!”

“Having suffered back problems for the past four years I have visited numerous GP’s, Osteo’s and Physio’s all with limited to no success and plenty of $’s down the pan.

Coming back from a trip to Queenstown with my back having gone on the first day meaning that I missed out on all the activities that had been booked I was starting to think that this was just how it was going to be going forward. I had all but given up on camping, kayaking, cycling and all the outdoors fun stuff that made up the majority of my weekends.
I saw Brian’s advert on Facebook and thought I would give the free consultation a go.

He came across as highly knowledgeable in the area of back rehabilitation and for the first time someone was talking to me about a structured, individualized training plan targeted at my specific problem areas (L4/L5) as opposed to the one size fits all approach that I had heard so many times before.

On the first day I walked/hobbled in I was in a lot of pain. Having worked out the correct exercises it was a case of going through these on a weekly basis at Brian’s gym and then homework to do throughout the week. Within two weeks the pain had subsided dramatically and within four weeks I was pain free.

During the period of in-activity I had put on a fair bit of weight. Outside of the back rehab Brian also put together a nutrition plan for me which saw me lose 5 kilo’s in 4 weeks as well as a drop of 3% body fat. This was not a result of dieting but purely through changing eating habits.

All in all after eight weeks it is going very well. I am back on my bike twice a week and in the kayak again at weekends.

Brian will put a plan in place with regards to exercise and diet specifically targeted for your individual needs and then hold you accountable for your own efforts outside of your one on ones with him. It also helps that he is a good bloke with a great attitude to getting you back to where you need to be.”

“About 8 years ago while working in the tree industry, I had a run in with a 350kg log that came swinging from a tree we were removing. It narrowly missed my spine, (fracturing 5 Transverse process attached to the lower spine, Brian you can explain what they are to people if you like!!)

After the bruising went down a couple of months later I realised that I was in for one hell of a journey to try and get back into any sort of shape to lead a normal life.
I had always been active, Climbing trees, playing sport, swimming, you name it, I’ve tried it.

I got to a stage after a couple of years that I could somewhat function, but only for a short time, after any sort of strenuous exercise/activity I knew that the pain would be coming back, with a vengeance, so I gradually start making excuses for not training or not trying really, born out of frustration from thinking the pain was just going to return, so why bother.

I have seen all the usual suspects over the last few years, Osteo, Chiro, Physio, basically anything with an O , I’ve tried, and they would patch the pain for a week or two, before the next spasm, and few days/ weeks not being able to walk, afraid to bend down, sneeze, sleep to long in one position, the list goes on.

The pain was getting so bad recently that I basically missed my younger sister’s wedding, I could not stand up or even sit down without excruciating pain.
I have a 3 year old boy who I couldn’t pick up, and he would say to me ”is your back sore daddy, I will rub it for you” This had to stop!!!!!

So after seeing an ad for Brian Ellicott promising to fix my back pain, I thought why not, you’ve tried everything else!

Since starting with Brian 3 months ago, I am glad to say that I have had no spasms, no pain, he has identified my weaknesses and addressed them straight away. He is constantly educating me on the right and wrong way to exercise. I am now back training regularly without the fear of harm.

And the best part of all, is I can now pick my boy up and play like normal parents do.

I would highly recommend Brian to anyone who has back or any other injuries for that matter, where they are struggling to see the light at the end of the tunnel.”

“Over the last six years I’ve experienced a range of physical issues that began with pain at the front of my right hip, gradually migrated into pain in my lower left back and finally resulted in two instances of spinal misalignment.

Mundane tasks like brushing teeth, getting in and out of the car and sneezing became painful. I was finally referred for an MRI, which revealed two bulging discs. I then added an osteopath and a massage therapist to my treatment rotation.

Relief only lasted for one to three days after each appointment and I would have to cope with the pain until my next visit.

I became increasingly frustrated and was tired of getting vague, noncommittal answers when I asked whether my back problems would ever be fixed.

Deciding to take matters into my own hands, I started searching online for back rehabilitation methods, which then turned up Brian’s name as a local proponent of Dr. Stuart McGill’s techniques.

During the initial consultation with Brian, he gave me hope that with some hard work to retrain bad habits and strengthen the right muscles, I would be able to regain normal function.
Brian used my MRI results and feedback at every session to create a program for my specific issues. He was very supportive and I appreciated that he kept in contact by text and email between visits.

Over 12 weeks, with a steady program of building muscle strength and retraining my movement patterns (bending, sitting etc.) I was finally able to wake up pain-free. It is such a relief to be given the knowledge and tools to manage my back pain and regain control of my life.

If you are willing to make the investment in yourself and can commit to the work between sessions, then Brian has the skills to design a custom program that will get results for you!”
