Sam holds a Masters in Physiotherapy from La Trobe University. He is also currently studying a postgraduate Masters degree in Strength & Conditioning to further his knowledge and expertise in exercise-based rehabilitation.
He is currently the Head Physiotherapist at Werribee Football Club (VFL), having previously worked as physiotherapist with the men’s and women’s senior teams at Geelong Supercats and as a trainer at Western Bulldogs/Footscray VFL.
Sam enjoys applying a hands-on treatment approach as a tool for pain relief. Further to this his studies and experiences have led him to develop an area of special interest in exercise-based rehabilitation and enjoys working together with patients to reach high-level rehabilitation goals.
Sam enjoys assessing and managing lower back and neck pain (including nerve related injuries), knee ligaments (including ACL injury), shoulder pain and tendon injuries.
Outside of work Sam enjoys participating in endurance sport, such as running, swimming and triathlon events. He enjoys getting out for a surf too but admits that he is probably better in the water than surfing on top of it.
