With almost 20 years’ experience in sports Physiotherapy, half of them spent at the highest professional level, Simon Harland is one of Ireland’s most respected and highly regarded sports Physiotherapy specialists.

His work with Arsenal FC, the Ireland and Ulster Rugby Teams, Irish Athletics, Sailing and Cricket, as well as his role at the Sports Institute of Northern Ireland, tells its own story of a practitioner at the very top of his game. He has travelled the world with teams and has wide ranging experience in all facets of integrated delivery to performance athletes.

Simon has been privileged to work with some of the world’s most respected sports medicine practitioners and allied sports professionals. This has helped broaden not only his Physiotherapy knowledge and repertoire in assessment, treatment, rehabilitation and prehabilitation, but also his overall understanding of comprehensive athlete care. He considers himself a manual clinician and is as comfortable in the clinic as he is in the gym, observing and correcting movement dysfunction, or on the pitch returning athletes to fitness.

Simon is also a frequent guest speaker, lecturer and contributor, as his commitment to continuous professional development means he is always at the forefront of current thinking and future developments within the field.

Simon has a genuine commitment and passion for Sports Medicine. He works with private individuals and teams, is a respected researcher and is a consultant specialist for many leading sports brands including Nike.
