Sam graduated from Macquarie University in 2005 with a Masters in Chiropractic. Preceeding that he had also gained a Bachelor degree in Chiropractic Science in 2002 and an Advanced Diploma in Remedial Massage in 1999. Sam is also a member of FICS, the Federation of International Chiropractic Sports.

Having played elite level hockey from his early teens, Sam was a regular beneficiary of Osteopathy from the age of 13. His choice of career, and his extraordinary skill, allow him to understand and manage any of the many injuries sustained in sport.

Sam has always had a keen interest in injury prevention and general health. He utilises different techniques he has acquired over his years of practice to treat the whole body. These include soft tissue work, joint manipulation, dry needling to myofascial release techniques. This is always complemented with sound advice on stretching, rehabilitation, stabilisation and diet.

Sam still coaches elite level hockey, and barracks for those serial losers, Melbourne, which is indicative of his good heart, loyalty, and unfailingly optimistic outlook in the face of defeat.
