Meet Samuel (Director of Recuperate)
Samuel's passion began as an exercise specialist in 2012 moving into sports medicine where he worked with a large variety of elite sporting athletes. Years of clinical experience treating countless conditions has given him the ability to fully address his patient’s issues. He has been running his practice specializing in Musculoskeletal Therapy for a number of years and takes a holistic approach to assessing and treating every presenting issue thoroughly and effectively. Recently Samuel has returned from the World Table Tennis Championship where he was the Myotherapist for the Worlds best athletes, working with an array of different Olympians. Currently he has a Commonwealth Games swimmer and the Singapore Womens doubles table tennis team. A lot of the time when people present with issues and there is no direct mechanism of injury it can be brought back to the spine and its interaction on neurovascular and neuromuscular structures. Musculoskeletal Therapy is a comprehensive field of assessment and treatment which is more concerned with root causes to presenting issues. Samuel is also one of very few practitioners who uses non-invasive transcutaneous Vagus Nerve Stimulation, a modern medicine technique which sees him commonly treating depression, anxiety, neuroplasticity, inflammatory disorders, irregular heartbeats, memory, PTSD, reflux and much more. Samuel is also 1 of very few experts in his field to be trained in Photobiomodulation (PBMt), an exciting field of modern medicine which can regenerates tissue. This laser can also be used on the brain to treat various mood and traumatic brain injuries. Laser has a profound effect of pain and recovery time and is also being utilised by the USA olympic teams. Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy is also a very exciting field of musculoskeletal medicine which can restart the repair process, break calcification in tendons, restructure scar tissue and reduce cellulite significantly. Luckily this is available in Bondi, NSW and surrounding areas.
