Exercise Physiologist

Meet Exercise Physiologist Claire Samanna

Claire joined the team at Tailored Health in May 2017. Since graduating in 2016, Claire worked with neurological patients for six months, before volunteering in Kenya for 2 months assisting in medical centres.

Claire used to be a keen netballer however stopped playing in her early 20’s due to persisting lower back and neck pain. Since then Claire felt stuck in her ability to exercise safely and found herself stopping all sports and all the things she loved to do. Claire felt overwhelmed by her situation, with simple tasks becoming more and more difficult and she thought she would never run again. After seeing an exercise physiologist and building pacing strategies and learning about the science behind pain, Claire has been able to get back to team sports, gym training, handstands, ocean swims, surfing and now competes in race walking. Claire has since competed at Nationals in 2021 in the 10,000 metre track race walk, racing against athletes competing in the Tokyo Olympics. This journey is the reason why Claire became an Exercise Physiologist and found an interest in pain science, leading to Claire’s passion for empowering others in chronic pain to get back moving and back to the activities they love to do.

In order to make a greater impact on healthcare, Claire has returned to Deakin University to complete an innovative honours project in Low Back Pain. Her project will determine how adherence to clinical guidelines impacts on the development of chronic low back pain. Outcomes from this study have the potential to shape the future of how low back pain is managed in the emergency department.

Claire’s passion for empowering others in chronic pain to get back moving and back to the activities they love to do.
