MEET SAM PLAMER
With a wealth of knowledge in Sports Therapy and working with professional athletes, Sam has joined Fitness Rush to help individuals move, feel and live better through advanced physiotherapy and massage treatments. By learning proven techniques alongside the world’s best physiotherapists’, Sam understands how and why the body needs to move efficiently in order to maximise the comfort and freedom of his patients.
Utilising manual therapy techniques such as soft tissue massage, joint mobilisations and mobility techniques; alongside precise exercise prescription and correct implementation of these exercises.
I believe in a holistic approach, aiming to treat the individual rather than the injury. Injuries can be complex and multifaceted, and as such, I believe in an assessment and treatment approach that is tailored to each patient’s individual requirements, while also considering their own goals and lifestyle requirements.
By following a systematic approach that encompasses the patient’s full movement and functional range and a full history, of both the injury itself and the patient’s training schedules, I can confidently find the cause of the injury and provide the tools and support to help get you training pain free.
THIS IS SAM
I have always loved competitive sport, playing football from an early age, and competing in athletics since my teenage years. After picking up a couple of injuries, I gained a bit of insight into the medical world, leading me to choose a career in Sports Therapy.
As I’ve gained more experience in sport and exercise and developed my professional knowledge, I have grown to appreciate the benefits of exercise for both physical and mental health. For me there is no greater feeling than helping someone to return to the activities they love to do.

Since graduating as a Sports Therapist, the bulk of my professional experience has come from working in elite football, with spells at Luton Town, Colchester United and Peterborough United. In these roles, I have worked with players from 8 years old, all the way up to senior professionals, over the course of nearly a decade.
Alongside this I have also worked privately, setting up my mobile injury clinic. With this I have provided injury assessments and treatments to people from a huge variety of backgrounds, treating various sports injuries, work-related pains as well as remedial sports massage.
