Samuel enjoys helping people achieve their journey to health and spends a large part of his day treating neck pain, headaches, pelvic imbalances and disc-related lower back pain.
As an Osteopath, he naturally encompasses all human physiology for consideration in his diagnostic and treatment processes, from respiratory and gastric to cardiac and lymphatic systems.
Samuel’s key focus is on managing and reducing pain, along with improving joint, muscle and nerve function.
Samuel also uses firm Osteopathic techniques with appropriate force within the limits of your pain threshold and thus may implement, with your permission, the use of joint manipulation (“cracking”) when clinically indicated.
Consultation and treatment with Samuel is individually tailored to the patient and draws on his professional experience of over ten years in the healthcare industry and may include:
- Exercise/Stretching and Core Strength Prescription
- Joint Manipulation
- Myotherapy, Soft Tissue Release, Cranio-Sacral, Trigger Point, Muscle Energy Technique (MET), Proprioceptive
- Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF), Myofascial Release (MFR) and Balancing Ligamentous Tension (BLT).
- Medical support (advice, referrals, evidence based medicine, diagnostic imaging).
Please be advised that basic conditions can potentially be alleviated within two to four appointments while others of a more chronic, long-term nature may need extended care and time and periodic management. This will all be clearly discussed in your appointment and your questions and concerns answered.
In his spare time, Samuel enjoys exploring the roads less-travelled in our great country in his trusty 4×4.
