Well done to Chris in Bonny Scotland. Chris is a keen hiker so my job was to help him rebuild strength to continue enjoying hiking through the highlands.
“In October 2020 I was at my wits end following a flare-up of an old lower back issue. I thought I was doing all the right things having been religiously doing exercises recommended by physios following back surgery 20 years ago. But nothing was helping and everything I did seemed to make matters worse. Driving the car, running, household tasks and any work involving lifting or twisting became a source of dread because of painful consequences.
I then discovered a video by Brian on YouTube in which he described precisely what I was going through. I signed up for a weekly one-to-one online session and at that moment I started to get my life back to normal. In small, incremental steps, week by week Brian got me functional again. Confidence returned and now, after about four months rehab I’m able to do all the things I used to plus a lot more.
Understanding what aggravators were the cause of my flare-ups and performing tailored daily workouts I’ve returned to productive living. Brian has in depth knowledge of back mechanics and understands what it’s like to go through the trauma of back injury because he’s been there himself. He doesn’t pretend there’s a quick fix – there’s no such thing – he gets to know your very specific back issues and tailors a rehab programme that suits you, adding and removing different exercises to the workout as you progress. I now know my back so much better and feel motivated to keep doing the right things, not letting old bad habits creep in.
I highly recommend Brian to anyone who wants to take back control of their lives. Without any exaggeration the experience has been positively life changing.
