About us

Sam Durnian gained her BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy Degree from the University of Teesside and graduated in 1994. Subsequently she has worked in the NHS and then moved into private practice in 1996. Sam specialises in musculoskeletal physiotherapy and sports injuries and believes prevention of injury is better than cure. Consequently Sam believes in looking at each patient as a whole in order to provide fast effective treatment.

Sam has a special interest in treating lower back, pelvic girdle and shoulder pain. Pelvic girdle pain affects 1 in 5 pregnant women and often goes untreated. Pelvic pain can also affect many sporting and non-sporting individuals and can present itself as a range of symptoms such as low back pain, hip and groin pain, pelvis and sacroiliac joint pain.

Sam's interest in sports injuries developed through her own participation in a variety of sports ranging from county netball, national level dressage, club level squash and golf. Golf is Sam's own ongoing sport and she has even had experience of working with golfers of all ages-from working with CAP Junior Golfers (County Academy Program supported by England Golf) to enhance their Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) (2011-2014). Sam has also worked with golfers of all ages and all levels. Sam has worked closely with golf coaches that have a special interest in golf biomechanics and fitness.

Sam's golf biomechanics background was developed through the late Ramsay McMaster whose work remains an inspiration to many Health and Golf professionals to date.

Sam has trained in assessing running gait to determine whether altered biomechanics are a result of muscle imbalances. Sam feels that core rehabilitation is a vital area of focus for all runners and it is easier for runners to work on technique with their coaches using core activation drills.

Sam also has an interest in treating children (7 years and above) and up to and including the elderly in order to prevent injury from poor posture occurring from everyday normal activities. It is through her work on posture rehabilitation that Sam has trained in Pilates and now teaches this at all levels.

Sam is a member of the Acupuncture Association for Chartered Physiotherapists (AACP).
