Samantha is from Cape Town, South Africa where, in 2017, she obtained a BSc. Physiotherapy from the University of Cape Town (coming first in her class for her dissertation) followed by a MSc. Sports and Exercise Physiotherapy (with distinction in the dissertation). Sam is an experienced, friendly physiotherapist who has worked in both public and private practices and started her own MSK practice in 2020 in Cape Town. Since moving to London in 2021 she has worked in private practice in South-West London treating a variety of patients with day-to-day injuries, sports injuries and pelvic health issues.

She is a qualified clinical Pilates instructor and has been running classes since 2019. Sam uses her Pilates and exercise physiology skills to perform biomechanical and sport-specific technical analysis on her patients as well as to create individualised rehabilitation and training programmes to guide patients back to optimal performance. Sam uses a combination of hands-on treatment, dry needling and rehabilitation exercises to treat most MSK injuries.

She has a varied and diverse professional background having worked with school, university and Olympic rowers, university and school level rugby teams, as well as provincial and school level hockey teams. For the last three years she has been treating runners, cyclists, golfers, tennis and rugby players and the general population presenting with day-to-day (non-sports) injuries. Sam also has experience with pre- and post-operative patients, particularly shoulder and foot patients.

In 2022 Sam obtained her Mummy MOT qualification and has been seeing more pre- and post-natal women with pelvic floor injuries. She is now expanding her knowledge to treat general pelvic health injuries as well as mens’ pelvic health issues.

Sam has always loved playing sport, last year she completed her first half-ironman and rowed for a local rowing club. This year she is focussing on triathlon, running a marathon, and playing tennis and netball.
