LT 099 | Dr. Stuart McGill & Brian Carroll – The Gift of Injury

Listen At »

“This week’s podcast features two return guests: Dr. Stuart McGill and Brian Carroll.

Dr. Stuart M. McGill is a professor emeritus of the University of Waterloo, where he was a professor for 32 years. His laboratory and experimental research clinic investigated issues related to the causal mechanisms of back pain, how to rehabilitate back-pained people and enhance both injury resilience and performance.

Brian Carroll is world class powerlifter with over a decade of elite class lifting under his belt. Coming back from a devastating back injury in 2012 that broke multiple bones and that most experts said he would never recover from, Brian returned to world class form and was able to establish a new world record for the squat at 1185 pounds all after his back injury.

This interview tells the story of Brian’s injury and his journey back to health and elite performance with the help of Dr. McGill.”
