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 comprehensive management plan for his patients.
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.
Sam is available at our Magill clinic during the week, and at our Malvern clinic on Saturdays. You can book in to see him at Magill by calling 08 7078 0303 or booking online here, or at Malvern by calling 08 8373 5655, or booking online here.
