Tom Russell - Next Gen Physio

Tom is one of Newcastle's youngest physiotherapy practice owners and brings an unrivaled passion and skill for physiotherapy. Tom is focused on long-term outcomes for his patients and although he works with all injured and in pain patients, he has a specific focus on athletes.

Tom grew up in Tamworth and moved to Newcastle at the age of 16 to attend Hunter Sports High School. Things didn’t quite work out for him due to a knee injury – hence the move into a physiotherapy career! 

Tom’s interest in assisting recovery from injury brought him to Yoga Body Works, where he developed a love for yoga and a belief in its effectiveness for rehabilitating physical injuries. Yoga Body Works run a weekly class at Tom’s practice, Next Gen Physio. 

Tom is excited about getting involved in Yoga Body Work’s Yoga Teacher Training and we are excited to have him. Having a yoga loving physiotherapist running the anatomy component of the course will give participants a much richer and in depth understanding of the physicality of yoga. He will start from the ground up, breaking the body down into sections and exploring their relationships and then applying this to how the body moves in yoga poses. Students will be given a deep understanding of how and why yoga works on the physical level.
