Sam graduated from the University of West England Bristol in 2010. He has worked in both the NHS and private practice including independent sports injury clinics and bigger companies like BUPA. He has spent time working within Rugby and cricket where he had the opportunity to experience working with the England Women’s cricket team.
He has a specialist interest in the diagnosis and management of shoulder injuries, but his current practice sees him treat musculoskeletal injuries of all varieties. His case load is varied and, as such, he is experienced in treating everyone from runners and triathletes with training limiting injuries to corporate workers struggling with spinal complaints. To gain further knowledge and experience in this field, Sam is undertaking a MSc in Sports and Exercise Medicine at Queen Mary University London. This is an exciting opportunity that will see him gain experience both through being taught by experts in musculoskeletal medicine and going on placements with Chelsea FC, Sussex CCC and Harlequins RFC.
Sam’s philosophy to physiotherapy is to empower the patient. Taking time to discuss the nature and cause of the injury, and to reason how to recover and just as importantly how to prevent a recurrence of the injury. As well as belonging to the Chartered Society of Physiotherapists (CSP) and the Health & Care Professions Council, he is enrolled with the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Sports and Exercise Medicine (ACPSM) and The European Union for Shoulder and Elbow Rehabilitation (EUSSER). He is also certified in acupuncture and is a member of the British Medical Acupuncture Society (BMAS).
