After being raised in Christchurch, Sam van Rij spent four years in Dunedin studying Physiotherapy, graduating in 2012.
Since then, Sam has worked as a physio in a private practice in Invercargill and has now recently shifted back to Dunedin to become a valued member of the team at Gardens Physio.
Sam has completed the SPNZ Level 1 Sideline Management course and is a registered Dry Needling practitioner with PAANZ.
Sam says “I really enjoy my work here and am excited to help people achieve their goals and be pain free. My primary focus is manual therapy, having done courses in both Mulligan and McKenzie techniques.
If I’m not at work you can find me outside in the great outdoors, tramping, fishing or hunting”.
