Comprehensive Management of the Injured Sportsperson
Assessment – Neuro-musculo-skeletal diagnosis/impression where possible. If onward referral is needed to aid in diagnosis, we can deliver rapid access to scans such as X-ray, MRI, US or CT. We can also refer you to many of the best Specialists at home or further afield.
NB An accurate diagnosis is often not possible without the aid of radiological investigations and often these can’t necessarily give us the exact answers we’re looking for.
Treatment – Best practice, and where possible evidence-based treatment eg. manual therapy, dry needling, taping/strapping, soft tissue/fascial techniques, Sarah Key approach etc.
Rehabilitation – Comprehensive and specific rehabilitation plans tailored to your sporting requirements, be it post-surgical, to the final stages of return to play.

"Simon is a fantastic Physio who helped me out massively while in Ulster Rugby and with the Irish 7s team. He especially helped me when I had ongoing trouble with my adductors and was always willing and able to help no matter how small the problem seemed."
