Dr. Sam Becourtney, PT, DPT, CSCS

Sam received his Doctorate of Physical Therapy from New York University. While working towards his doctorate, Sam became a certified strength and conditioning specialist and worked as a personal trainer both independently and at New York Sports Clubs within the New York/New Jersey area. As part of his DPT degree, Sam had very unique clinical experiences in a variety of settings, including his final two rotations at Force Physical Therapy and EXOS. These performance physical therapy clinics boast an emphasis on bridging the gap between rehab and performance. Through these experiences, he was fortunate to work with collegiate and professional athletes (specifically during preparation for the NFL combine), as well as active duty special ops military personnel who were injured in combat.  Sam customizes his treatment based on the patient standing in front of him, understanding that no two human beings will present exactly the same way. In addition to addressing local issues that correlate with a patient’s subjective complaints, Sam makes sure to look at the body in its entirety to identify the root cause of pain or dysfunction in the first place. Sam utilizes movement science and strength training where appropriate to foster a rehabilitation process that empowers patients to be active in order to achieve their highest potential. He believes that physical therapy should not abruptly end as soon as someone no longer experiences pain; rather, the goal should shift towards enhancing performance with an emphasis on proper form to minimize future injury risk. When not working, Sam enjoys staying active, watching professional sports, and traveling.

Cameron received his Doctor of Physical Therapy from New York University. While working towards his doctorate, Cameron was also involved in research at Lehman College’s Human Performance Lab, where he studied optimal resistance training dosage for strength and hypertrophy responses. Prior to becoming a physical therapist, Cameron was a strength and conditioning coach at UC San Diego, where he trained and coached athletes to win at both the state and national levels of competition. Cameron’s approach to treatment reflects his view that injury rehabilitation and athletic training lie on a continuum, and are governed by shared principles. He believes that the role of the therapist is to identify where the client is on this continuum, then guide them towards their goals through the best one on one care possible. His evaluations and treatments always follow an individualized and graded approach, and may include hands on care, resistance training, and motor re-training depending on the needs and goals of the client.
