REAL MAN with Dr. Tommy John

R.E.A.L. Man Series

With Master Degrees in Health and Exercise Science from Furman University, Dr. Tommy John brings over 17 years of health experience to the table. At completion of  his studies Dr. Tommy played professional baseball for three years with teams such as the Schaumburg Flyers, Tyler Roughnecks and the LA Dodgers.  After his career was abruptly ended from a rare infection in his throwing shoulder, Dr. Tommy developed his own baseball performance company providing over 11,000 baseball training sessions for baseball enthusiasts from ages six to thirty. Additionally, he expanded his practice of personal training, sports performance training and rehabilitation of all types of soft tissue injuries.  Dr. Tommy was drawn to chiropractic because he realized there was a higher element missing from the healing, performance process and proper function of the human body in the innate intelligence and the nervous system: brain, brain stem and spinal cord.  That paramount observation led him to obtain his Doctor of Chiropractic Degree from Life University, (a 4-year program), in Marietta, Georgia, where he graduated Magna Cum Laude.  As the son of renowned Major League Baseball pitcher Tommy John who played in the Major Leagues for 26 seasons and was the first person to comeback in 1974 from the revolutionary surgery named the Tommy John Surgery, it is not surprising that Dr. Tommy developed a passion for proper healing and physical function as he witnessed firsthand the outcomes of injury, innovation and principled healing. The primary goal of Dr. Tommy John Performance and Healing Center is to provide entire families with integrative, individualized care plans and treatment to improve their quality of life by reducing physical and emotional pain from injury and aging and minimizing the use of pharmaceuticals or surgery.

20. From Tommy John Surgery to D1 Baseball Player w/ Chris Newell

On Q Performance Therapy Podcast

Season 2, Episode 1 Podcast #20 Welcome back! This week, Q kicks off season two with PTW Newtown Square athlete, Chris Newell. Chris grew up in Newtown Square and is currently a sophomore center fielder on the University of Virginia baseball team. In high school, he played baseball at Malvern Prep where he won three state championships. In 2019, he was named Pennsylvania’s Gatorade player of the year and an Under Armor all-American. During his first year at UVA, Chris was named as a second team all-American and one of the ACC’s best freshman. In this episode, Mike and Chris talk about Chris’s background in baseball, his elbow injury and Tommy John surgery, and the mindset he developed throughout his rehabilitation. They also touch on the psychology behind an injured athlete, Chris’s strength and conditioning training as a D1 college athlete, and coaching/mentorship.

At the time, Chris felt like baseball was all he had. Q says that is a psychological component that medical professionals and parents need to understand; for a young athlete, their sport is everything. 17:56 - Q asks how Chris’s injury affected him mentally, socially, and academically. Chris explains why tearing his UCL was actually the best thing to happen to him. 20:45 - “You hear it so much: it’s how you handle adversity. I saw it first hand with myself and I knew I had to come out of the situation better than I came into it, and that’s the mindset I had.” 21:21 - One of the main takeaways from his injury was to appreciate the little things in life. 22:30 - Q asks how his training program has developed over the years. Chris talks about working with Jordan Quinones (Trainer at PTW Newtown Square) since he was 12 and how it prepared him for college ball. 30:40 - Chris answers how his time in baseball has helped him physically and where he sees himself going in the future. 33:42 - Q asks about coaching techniques, motivation, and where Chris gets it from. 34:50 - “You’re going to hear so many different things from so many other people so, what I said about being a sponge, obviously respect them and hear what they have to say, but one thing I always tell myself is try and take at least one thing that [a coach] tells me and put it into myself” 36:43 - Chris discusses how he depends on his coaches, past and present. The number one thing he looks for in a coach - whether that be a baseball coach or strength performance coach - is a meaningful relationship. This is something Chris keeps in mind when he coaches little kids. CONTACT Instagram - @chris_newell Twitter - @c_newell20

Dr Tommy John

Evolve with Pete Evans

With the state of the world in 2020, we need more people to stand up for the truth and what they believe. One such person and someone who is imploring others to do this too, is Dr. Tommy John, an experienced chiropractic healer, and former professional baseball player. Dr. Tommy John joins us on the show today to walk about the beliefs, values, and needs that go into living a healthy life and he unpacks his particular philosophy to looking after the body and mind. Naturally, we talk about the fallacy of the current measures against the 'pandemic' and our guest underlines the dangers of mask-wearing and the kinds of fear that he comes up against constantly in his work and personal life. Dr. Tommy John recently made an important social media post, calling men to account for the fear with which they have responded to the so-called pandemic, challenging them to step into their responsibility and action as humans. We talk a lot about what holds people back from standing up for their truth, where this fear comes from, and the eight essential parts of health. Our guest shares his own story of a shoulder injury that ended his baseball career and how mistreated he was by the medical field in this instance. We also delve into the sad story of his brother's death and the part that medication played in that. Stay tuned for Dr. Tommy John's hilarious Matthew McConaughey impression towards the end of the show, you will not want to miss it!

Dr. Tommy owns and operates the Dr. Tommy John Performance and Healing Center in San Diego, California, where he provides individualized care plans, incorporating a truly holistic approach to health. In this episode, we discuss the fundamentals of what it means to become resilient at a time when it seems that the odds are against us.

Hey guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition, and I am delighted to welcome Dr. Tommy John to the podcast. Dr. Tommy, how are you mate? Tom 00:01:30 I'm doing very well. How are you? Stu    00:01:31 Yeah, really, really good. Really, really good. Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to dive into your area of expertise. I'm really looking forward to the conversation, but first up for all of our listeners that may not be familiar with you or your work, I would love it if you could just tell us a little bit about yourself, please. Tom   00:01:50 Yeah, so I call myself a performance and healing specialist. I'm more of a facilitator of sorts, where I have chiropractic in a background. I have training and rehab. But we put together the emotional health, meditation, spiritual, purpose, relationships, outdoor light exposure, nourishment, and movement and we bring it all together and all I'm trying to do in my facility, on my pages, and my social, when I interact with anybody is just to empower people to know that they're self-healing, self-regulating, everything they have is within them. And if they can just access that and almost get out of the way and let themselves be their best self, whatever I can do to help facilitate putting them in the best position possible to be able to adapt, survive and thrive in this life. That's my job. So if it's a career, it's passion, I've never worked a day in the last 20 years. For full interview and transcript: https://180nutrition.com.au/180-tv/dr-tommy-john-interview/
