Russell is experienced in orthopedics, manual therapy, sports specific therapy, and spine treatment. Russell believes that health is not just about exercising regularly and eating right, but that there is a mental, spiritual, and emotional component in addition to the physical. “To be truly healthy, you must be incorporating all four aspects of health.” One of Russell’s favorite quotes is to ‘Seek first to understand, then to be understood’.
He believes it is hard to help someone when you don’t understand their problem. “As a physical therapist, I will take the time to listen to my patients to fully understand their problem. I will dedicate every second I have with each patient to solve their problem. If I am unable to resolve their problem, I will make sure the patient is referred to a provider who can help them.”
In his spare time, Russell enjoys spending time with his wife and five children. He also enjoys cooking and especially grilling out.
