Sam became a Physio to combine his interests in health, sport and the human body. In addition to common conditions like back and neck pain, shoulder pain, or headaches, Sam has expertise in sporting injuries, and he particularly enjoys assessing and treating knee injuries.
Sam’s long history playing soccer and long distance running showed him first-hand how important it is to address any niggles or injuries which may arise. Sam also has past and present experience in working with semi-professional and professional sporting athletes and teams to manage their injuries and prevent recurrences.
After completing his Bachelor of Physiotherapy in 2015, Sam returned to University for his Masters of Advanced Clinical Physiotherapy (Sports). This allowed him to continue improving his hands-on skills and his ability to problem solve, and as a result provide a clear and holistic plan of treatment for his patients.
He is a member of the Australian Physiotherapy Association, and life member of the Golden Key International Honour Society. He was awarded the Audrey Simpson Prize for overall highest academic achievement in Acute Care in the Bachelor of Physiotherapy.
In his time away from work, Sam is a lover of coffee, so much so he has done additional training to nail the basics to give him the best shot (excuse the pun) to produce the best cup possible! If you see him around the clinic and have a great coffee recommendation, be sure to let him know.
