Your body and your mind work together. You are not separate parts — so pain can affect your whole life. At Brightside we believe in hope, and a relentless optimism. So you can return to your best self. When you’re in pain, it limits your life. It narrows and weaken the way you live. Is pain disrupting your sleep or stopping you exercising? Is it getting in the way of relationships? Is it limiting your ability to relax? 

We want to help expand your future. All you. All in.

We will treat you as a whole person so we can fully understand why you are in pain and get to the best solutions. Fast. We are relentlessly optimistic and we talk straight. No complicated language, no uncertainty, no hidden costs or programs. It’s upfront, clear and honest.

Welcome to our first Newcastle physio locations in Lambton & Broadmeadow!


An active body and mind keeps you healthier, longer. The Brightside ‘All In’ method geats you out of pain as soon as possibleand makes life bigger and less restricted than before.


We will give you a clear diagnosis. Listening first makes sure that we understand the whole person so we’re treating the right problem. 


We’re about getting you back into your life and not about the unnecessary cost. We’ll be transparent and tell you how long treatment should be and how many sessions you might need. 


Your body can heal quicker if your mind has a target. When we know the steps and the timeframe for gettng better, we can get our mental game committed to that plan to make a faster physical recovery. 

Get faster pain relief and forward momentum in the healing process, and you can more quickly go back to the life you enjoyed.

Listened to me rather than tell me what I needed. I ended up pleased and happy - with exercises rather than medication, which was what I wanted. Delighted and will return.

Tom at Brightside was so helpful, thorough and knowledgeable at my first appointment. The process was not rushed at all and I could see the genuine care he has for his clients and the trust he has in the profession. The exercises Tom gave me are working a treat!

Brightside Physio has absolutely wonderful, caring and support physiotherapists who take the time to provide the best care and treatment for every client. Each physiotherapist explains in detail what therapy they are providing and answers questions in easy to understand terms. I have being visiting Ben since he decided to return to Newcastle to live (and work) from the Big Smoke aka Sydney. Each visit results in pain relief and the ability to move as gracefully as possible.Kristen or James will stand in if Ben is not available. Brightside staff are a great team who work as a team for the benefit of each and every client. Definitely will continue to be utilising this AMAZING business.Keep up the great work Brightside Physio 🙏🏻

Kristen you are a super star. After seeing a lot of different people for my gut issues, it was suggested I go see a physio. I thought this was a long shot , but what the heck give it a go, what can I lose. Well Kristen has helped me very quickly and has excellent advise. Thank you so much, I am really grateful.

Ben is very thorough, attentive and uses a whole-person health approach. Taking the time to ask questions, in order to understand how I am being impacted by a physical concern, what is important to me in relation to movement, and what is necessary to move forward. Highly recommended.

James is amazing & so approachable! I can ask him any question, and he takes the time to answer in detail! He did a full pre assessment & is helping get me ready for a much needed knee replacement! He demonstrates the exercises & makes sure I’m doing them properly so they are easy to do at home! He easily swaps out exercises to ensure I’ll follow them at home!

Honestly, there’s no other Physio that has spent the time understanding the cause of the issue, before launching into treatment - like Ben. The rapport and trust built during that first appointment, is beyond comparison with any previous experience I have had over the years. 100% highly recommended!

I'm not one to normally post reviews but I've recently had two appointments with Ben and really like his hollistic approach to helping with my issues. His instructions and stretches are clear and achievable and he has a great sense of humour!!

James was extremely thorough during my initial consultation. His treatment of my sore bits was well targeted. I came away secure in the knowledge that he will make a big difference to my mobility.

I can highly recommend this physiotherapist! From the moment I was greeted by Bec at the front desk with her friendly smile, I felt comfortable. I have reinjured an old shoulder injury. Fortunately I have been under the care of James Youngberry, he has been wonderful. He’s very thorough, well informed & incredibly helpful. I’m so impressed with his knowledge, ability to explain things & encourage me. Thanks James, you’re an asset to Brightside.

OMG the one get your body fixed stop!Ben is the most wholistic physiotherapist I’ve seen in YEARS! He has helped me with a stiff back that I’ve been trying to fix with other physics for years AND after a recent ankle re-injury, got me back walking in speedy Gonzales time!Combine Ben’s physio with regular maintenance massage with incredible Emma (who also works with the Knights and Jets), and your body is a well oiled working machine!The teamwork of this organisation, their care for overall well-being is second to none!Do yourself a favour, and book in!Actually, no. Don’t. Because I want to be selfish and have them all to myself! 😀

The reason I went there first was that Ben was the son of a long time family friend!BUTThe reason I will keep going is that he is friendly, knowledgeable, prompt, skilful & engaged with my own issue (even to the point of addressing another physical limitation I had in order to help me better work on recovery for the current injury!)They let you know “We are working on this together”.I will be back.Thanks Ben

I suffer chronic pain from a sporting injury and have had two major surgeries. No other physio has been able to really help me with the recovery except Ben. He thinks outside the box with rehab and is always encouraging me to keep up my strength training. I highly recommend Ben!

I have been unable to go for walks (even 15 mins) without immense lower back pain. I have been seeing Ben for a few weeks now and I've started walking pain-free for the first time in a long time. Super grateful for his expertise, care and help. Highly recommend.Also, if you're in need of a really good remedial massage, definitely see Emma. I learnt that you don't have to be in immense pain during remedial massage to get the benefits and my leg swelling/pain is almost gone!

I contacted Ben at Brightside on Monday morning regarding experiencing pain in my right shoulder. I attended the practice at midday and Ben went to work sorting out the cause of the problem. After an hours consultation and treatment I felt confident that I had made the right decision. On Tuesday, I was certain as the shoulder pain had lessened considerably, and now on Wednesday my pain has almost gone. I know that with follow up treatments and advise from Ben, that the problem will not return.My sincere thanks to Ben and his staff.
