Sam Stephens heads up the team here at Salisbury Sports Therapy & Performance.
Beginning with the official bits, Sam is registered and insured as a Sports Therapist with the Society of Sports Therapists, and holds associate memberships with the British Association of Sports and Exercise Sciences, The Physiological Society, The International Society of Biomechanics in Sport and The International Society of Biomechanics.
Sam’s academic journey has allowed her to develop strong research interests in sports biomechanics and human performance, but Sam brings a lot of special qualities that take her beyond her qualifications and make her truly outstanding as a Sports Therapist. Firstly, She fully understands and appreciates the life-changing benefits of effective Sports Therapy first hand. She was one of the first people to receive the pioneering Muscle Activation techniques whilst undergoing treatment for a knee injury sustained while training for a competitive triathlon season back in 2012. These days Sams passion for enhancing endurance performance has lead her to the realm of ultra events, where she has undertaken events such as the Jurassic Coast Challenge and Ironman Triathlon.
Her passion and commitment to helping those afflicted by injury as she was, is clear from the moment you meet her. Her empathy and enthusiasm, matched with her curiosity and appetite for learning make Sam a very welcome addition to the world of Sport Science in Salisbury. Whether you are a tri-athlete or struggling with simple every day movement, Sam will get you back on course for greatness.
