About Brian

Having fun on side-bridges with Simon

A Specialist in Lower Back Pain and Injury Rehabilitation with over 17 years experience.

Brian is a big believer in the value of the work of Professor Stuart McGill (having used his approach to overcome his own crippling back injury in 2013) and also the work of Dr. Andrew Lock.

Brian became a certified Mcgill Practitioner in 2022, after 10 years of using Professor Stuart Mcgill’s research and principles.
With Dr. Andrew Lock in Brisbane, July 2022

He is a big believer in that the key to long-term success with back injuries is build a strong back and to keep as active as possible. The trick comes in knowing how to get it there, while methodically working through the acute stages of pain and injury.

Having rehabilitated his own severe back injury allowed Brian to learn first hand about what works, and what does not, for long term success.

Part of which is learning that success with a back injury relies on your overall approach and not just a handful of exercises.

We must take into account your pain triggers, daily movement patterns, occupation, exercise and training history to build a clear picture of how your back injury has been created.

By understanding the mechanics of your injury, we can build a foundation to return you to pain free movement and then build strength and performance on top.

What is the key to success with a back injury? “It depends…” as Professor McGill would say.
