A Bit About Kelsey

Kelsey grew up living on the Central Coast where she lived for 25 years before moving to Newcastle in 2023. Kelsey always had a passion to work in Healthcare and developed an interest for Physiotherapy through the multiple sporting environments she was involved in. 

 

Sports & Hobbies

Kelsey currently plays Rugby League and played for Parramatta Eels in the 2023 NRLW. Kelsey enjoys playing Oztag and Touch Football in the offseason. Kelseys highest achievements and sporting highlights have been playing in the NRLW and Australian Oztag.

Sadly, over her sporting career, she has sustained many injuries ranging from multiple broken bones and two ACL Reconstructions. 

During Kelsey’s downtime you will find her reading a book (she even created a Next Gen Book Club chat with Sam, Caitlin and Gabby so they can all share their books), going to the beach or in the gym. 

 

Career

Kelsey graduated in 2021 from the University of Newcastle. Kelsey always had an interest in the private practice side of Physiotherapy. Kelsey worked in a private Physiotherapy clinic for 4 years while studying at University where she was a Receptionist and Sports Trainer for a local Soccer Club before transitioning into a Physiotherapist at that clinic once she graduated.

Over the 2 years as a Physiotherapist on the Central Coast, Kelsey gained a wide range of experience working with professional athletes through to your everyday patient. Kelsey worked as part of the NRLW Roosters Physiotherapy team for the 2021 season, Junior Central Coast Rooster pathways over the 2022-2023 season, as well as the local Rugby League team. 

Manual Therapy 

Kelsey has undertaken her Level 1 GEMt dry needling course, with plans to continue her education in this domain and undertake the following levels in the near future. Whilst there may be some areas of the body she can’t perform dry needling just yet, she is able to perform dry needling on the most commonly effected muscle groups.

Holistic

Kelsey’s approach to Physiotherapy is holistic in nature. Kelsey understands the physical aspect of an injury isn’t the only effect on the body, and sometimes a patient needs somebody to vent as well. You can rest assured that you will feel heard with Kelsey as your Physiotherapist.

Testing

Like all of our Physiotherapist’s at Next Gen, Kelsey often uses our Axit System from Strength by Numbers to gather specific strength numbers, and compare both your symmetry and see how your strength matches up with the expected ‘normative data’.

Imaging

As with all Physio’s at Next Gen Physio, Kelsey can refer you for most scans such as Xray, Ultrasound, MRI, though sometimes this is best done through a specialist for expert interpretation.

Absolutely incredible physio. The whole team are super friendly and highly experienced. My first appointment was with Michael who greeted me with a warm welcome and was incredibly helpful. Can’t recommend this physio enough to anyone looking for an appointment.

Tom Russell has been a go to physio both personally and for our patients for a decade. We love his open and honest advice and his expertise in managing injuries and recovery. The whole team is so friendly and our patients always have great feedback after visiting them. Tom and his practice manager, Gabby visited us in our clinic today to help our team better understand the services he is providing to our patients and what really works to get them feeling great as quickly as possible after surgery. Much appreciated!

I met Tom and Gabby during my first appointment here, both were fantastic! Tom has a great manner and had no trouble getting to the bottom of my injury. I'm a big fan of the app they use because it overcomes the problem of forgetting exercises or how to do them properly

I’ve been visiting Next-Gen Physio for a few years now. I’ve always found the team to be knowledgeable and genuinely caring no matter which physiotherapist or therapist you visit.

After suffering from back pain and muscle stiffness for a while due to a work related injury. I went in to see the guys at Next Gen and was referred to Adam for a remedial massage. After my first massage I immediately rebooked with him again, his knowledge about particular muscles and post massage exercises is great, and also how in-depth he goes with his massage definitely made me want to return again. I can’t recommend Next Gen Physio enough. Thanks guys!
