ABOUT OUR PEOPLE
Russ W Tolland - Senior Physio & Director
Russ graduated from the University of Queensland (2014) with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy. He started his physiotherapy career in the private sector working in aged care primarily caring for ex service people. He was then commissioned into the Australian Army in 2016 as a Lieutenant Physiotherapist Specialist Service Officer. This exposure to military life across the lifespan has empowered Russ with an understanding of the physical demands and the effects of this on the musculoskeletal system throughout life.
Throughout his service Russ has deployed within Australia and to Iraq, where he provided support to coalition forces as well as Australian Defence members including both US and Australian Special Forces. Throughout his army career he also provided physiotherapy support to the Australian Defence Force football, rugby league and volleyball teams.
Russ is interested in musculoskeletal and sports injuries, pre and post surgical prehab/rehab, spinal manipulation and the benefit of physiotherapy across the lifespan. On a personal level Russ enjoys gym, cycling and keeping active.
His further qualifications include advanced dry needling, massage (Cert IV), and myofascial cupping.
