Physiotherapist

A Bit About Zac
The perfect mix of beach and country, born in Newcastle and bred in Singleton. Following subsequent sporting injuries and various hours spent in a Physio clinic, Zac decided to pursue a career in Physiotherapy himself.

 

Sports and Downtime
Whilst not actively involved in a sport now, Zac’s younger years were spent playing Rugby League, and as a result he developed a passion for maintaining a physically active and balanced lifestyle.

Unfortunately, Zac’s Rugby League endeavours were ceased after he suffered back-to-back ACL reconstructions at a young age and decided to prioritise both his physical and mental health.

Following a stint of entirely no sport, in 2019 Zac decided to start training for a Triathlon to fuel his competitive side. Unfortunately there was no claim to fame here, and is no competition for former colleague Dave.

During his downtime you will often find him out and about in Newcastle enjoying time with friends or family.

 

Physio

Study

Zac studied Physiotherapy at the University of Newcastle with his heart set on private practice. Interestingly, throughout his studies Zac had hopes to one day work for Next-Gen Physio and will admit he had no plan to work elsewhere.

Holistic

Zac’s approach to Physiotherapy is holistic in nature. Zac 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 Zac as your Physiotherapist.

Manual Therapy

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

Testing

Like all of our Physiotherapist’s at Next Gen, Zac 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, Zac 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!
