2005 Elliott began to experience a continual ache and pain in his neck, after a number of sessions with a chiropractor there was no change, in fact he began to lose the sensations in his fingers and hands, within a couple of days he lost the feelings in his feet, after an MRI scan it was revealed that two of his discs were pressing on his spinal cord and within two days he was in hospital for a surgical procedure that involved slicing the front of his neck open and moving his vocal cords, to remove the two discs and replace them with a cage. There was a distinct possibility that had the operation not been successful he would have been left paralyzed. The consultant explained that Elliott should at best hope to be walking and carrying eventually shopping. The next day he discharged himself from the hospital explaining that hospitals were for sick people, he then spent three weeks walking back and forward from one end of the room to the other after one month he was walking one mile a day, within three months he was back training at the gym, and within one year he was bench pressing 140kg.
