Mr Sam Coombs

Mr Sam Coombs

Physiotherapist

As a senior physiotherapist I have extensive experience managing a wide range of musculoskeletal injuries with a special interest in low back pain, overuse injuries, the running athlete and running technique analysis. I work alongside my clients, enabling them to build a more resilient body, as well as increase their understanding around how to reduce risk of injury in the long term. As an endurance athlete myself, I partake in ultra-endurance distance running and cycling events, along with map sports and expeditions into the backcountry. It is for this reason that I understand the challenges of managing injuries while staying active and in training. I also have a good understanding of the mechanics of Olympic lifting, as well as martial arts. I enjoy the CrossFit gym and have experience fighting Muay Thai at a national level. Whether your goal is to resolve day-to-day pain or run 100km, I enjoy working alongside people of all ages and abilities. View details »
