Sam believes that athletic therapy is an art as well as a science and that each person/condition/injury is unique and deserves individually oriented treatment. She practices using an evidence-based, patient centered approach to identify the source of pain, correct movement patterns and improve health for long term resolution of injuries. This is done through utilizing a variety of manual techniques and rehabilitative exercise. Sam is also a shift certified concussion rehab specialist providing baseline testing, physical testing, therapeutic strategies and return-to-play preparation. Her mission is to provide a high standard of care for all concussed individuals whether elite-level competitors, recreational athletes or your everyday lay person. This comprehensive injury management protocol is accessible to all children and adults in the community.
