Sam graduated with a MSc in physiotherapy from King’s College London, UK, after completing his BSc in Applied Sports Science at the University of Edinburgh. He has worked in a variety of settings including musculoskeletal, major trauma, amputees, orthopaedics and professional sport. He has completed several post-graduate courses including advanced running assessment, ACL rehabilitation and IMS/dry needling with Acupuncture Canada.
Having played competitive sport, Sam understands the importance of getting people back to the things they love. Following a thorough assessment, he utilizes a combination of hands-on/manual therapy, IMS/dry needling, targeted rehabilitation exercises and advanced strength and conditioning programming within his treatment sessions. He believes the mental and emotional impacts of an injury to be just as important as the physical. Sam’s approach is to keep people active in their sport or activity as much as possible while undergoing rehabilitation. Supporting others to achieve their goals is Sam’s motivation and is what attracted him to become a physiotherapist in the first place.
Sam enjoys treating a wide range of musculoskeletal and orthopedic conditions. He loves to treat sports injuries and has a special interest in running assessments as well as post-operative knee rehabilitation including ACL reconstruction.
Sam is originally from the UK and moved to Canada in early 2021. His sporting background is in rugby which he played at an elite level for over over ten years. When not in clinic, Sam enjoys CrossFit, skiing, golf and hiking with his wife and one-year-old son. He is looking forward to exploring more of British Columbia in the coming years.
