Born in the big smoke of London, England, Elliott grew up playing Football (Soccer for all you Canadians) and tennis and it was his love of this and science that led him into the field of Physiotherapy. He completed his Bachelor of Science in Sports Science and Physiology at Leeds University in 2003 and his Masters of Science in Physiotherapy at the University of Northumbria in 2006. Elliott went on to carry out research in the prevention of hamstring injuries which was later published.

He has also run in-service training sessions for top English Premier League Football teams.

How do you take care of your body/prevent injuries/etc.?
When he is not throwing his kids around on the trampoline and shouting on football terraces, Elliott can be found running on his local streets, and is a keen recreational runner. He uses IMS needling on himself, and gets his colleagues to treat him with MAT to prevent injury.
