Sam Philip, PT, MPT

Physical therapist

Physical therapist Sam Philip loves hearing his patients’ life stories and getting to know them on a personal level. To him, the patient is more than the knee or shoulder they are treating.

Sam received his master’s degree in physical therapy at Loma Linda University in Loma Linda, California. He was a board-certified orthopedic clinical specialist through the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties between 2006-2016 and carries on with those skills to help patients recover from injury. Within orthopedics, Sam helps patients through joint replacements, fracture rehabilitation, chronic pain conditions, work-related injuries, and balance rehabilitation. He usually combines hands-on therapy with exercise-based treatment in order to achieve each patient’s goals.

When he’s not at work, you might find Sam playing roller hockey or on the sidelines as a fan of the Portland Winterhawks hockey team. Otherwise, he might be taking to the road with his family to explore the Pacific Northwest or a national park.
