Area of Expertise: Shoulder, Lower Back, Sporting Injuries
Elliott is an enthusiastic musculoskeletal physiotherapist who has an extensive background competing and coaching in elite sport and carries his passion for optimal performance and biomechanics into the treatment room.
He completed his Bachelor of Exercise and Sport Science and then went on to complete his Master of Physiotherapy, both at the University of Sydney. After training for years as a javelin thrower he was rewarded with several state and national titles and also the opportunity to represent Australia on several occasions.
His passion for physiotherapy however was originally sparked through injury when he underwent elbow reconstructive surgery in the hope of keeping his throwing career alive. He later came back to win the NSW title and narrowly missed out on qualifying for the Commonwealth Games. This among several other injuries has given Elliott a deeper empathy and understanding of clients and their recovery from injury.
He has a keen interest in musculoskeletal injuries of the shoulder and lower back and uses his knowledge and personal experience to provide a targeted rehabilitation approach which balances manual therapy with functional exercise to help his clients achieve optimal results.
Before joining the team at Sydney Physiotherapy Solutions, Elliott worked for years at a private practice in Sydney’s Western Suburbs where he honed his skills diagnosing and treating a wide variety of conditions and injuries. He also enjoyed 6 months of valuable experience working alongside the physiotherapy team at the Sydney Roosters and also works as a strength and conditioning coach at The Kings School.
If Elliott isn’t working he will probably be found at the beach, in the gym or out on the golf course trying to hit the perfect drive.
