Sam Morjaria brings two decades of experience to Park North Physical Therapy. Sam graduated from the University of Vermont in 1998 with his degree in Physical Therapy. He started his career at Beth Israel Hospital in outpatient sports medicine treating professional athletes, dancers, and stuntmen. His philosophy of physical healing is to treat the body as a whole instead of treating the point of pain and/or dysfunction.

He has advanced training in Myofascial Release, running biomechanics, Maitland mobilizations, strength and conditioning and is certified in Active Release Technique. Sam is also a certified golf fitness instructor by the Titleist Performance Institute.
Sam believes in treating the body as one unit to return to function and exercise. He implements an individualized treatment program to meet everyone’s specific goals and needs. He is a proponent of education about the body, so the knowledge can carry over into everyday life and movement. Originally from the Bay Area, California, Sam graduated with his Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Columbia University. He has had experience working with a wide variety of populations, including athletes, weight lifters, neurological injuries, and all types of orthopedic injuries.
