Physiotherapy is an occupation in the health service, which assists people to restore and improve their over-all well-being following pain, disability, or injury.
As Chartered Physiotherapists, we are university educated and regulated by the Irish Society of Chartered Physiotherapists. This is your guarantee that we have been trained to the highest academic and professional standards and that we continue to keep abreast of emerging trends and developments in medicine through a programme of Continuous Professional Development.
We are trained in exercise physiology and movement science, making us ideally placed to prescribe exercise programmes, in addition to “hands-on” techniques, to help alleviate pain and improve movement, to get you better faster.
