Back Pain Specialist Profile:
From an early age I developed a passion in injury management. My first significant injury occurred at age 15 when I tore my hamstring at a county football training session. Due to inadequate rehabilitation I ended up with significant ongoing pain that developed into chronic back pain. I ended up having to quit sport for a significant period as a result.
After visiting several physiotherapists & a chiropractor, I had personal experience of the frustration of not getting the answers I needed. This experience changed my life and fuelled my future passion for back pain and injury management.
I have been treating back pain since 2001 and have extensive experience working in some of the top pain clinics in Ireland. My passion & lifetime commitment to helping others who are suffering with back pain is based on my own personal experience & frustration in seeking help for the condition.
Knee, Shoulder & Joint Pain:
Having successfully eradicated my own chronic knee & shoulder pain, I understand how these conditions can be particularly responsive to appropriate treatment. My own experience has resulted in a special passion & clinical interest in both areas.
I have kept playing several sports despite a chronic knee cartilage injury due to repetitive trauma. I continue to read extensively to keep on top of the latest research in this field so that I can help patients get back to normal activity as soon as possible.

A Decade in Education
1) B.Sc. Physiotherapy, Trinity College, Dublin. Member Irish Society of Chartered Physiotherapists.
This course developed my understanding of injury rehabilitation and exercise prescription. All ISCP members undergo a minimum of 4 years undergraduate training. This course helped me to develop an excellent understanding of post-surgical rehabilitation and movement analysis.
2) B.Sc. Chiropractic from Cardiff University.
Chiropractors undergo 4-5 years of university training and Swedish research has concluded that a Chiropractors education is the equivalent of Swedish medical training.
This course was extremely in-depth and helped provide a deep understanding of physiology (an understanding of how the human body functions) and holistic healthcare.
3) Dip. Sports Injury Therapy
This degree course accelerated my development of hands-on treatment & manual technique skills.
Over the course of my education I have performed extensive research on the drivers of low back pain and the correlation between exercise rehabilitation & lifestyle factors on low back pain.
I was one of the speakers at the tenth annual scientific conference at the Royal College of Surgeons.

If you are feeling frustrated with an injury due to a lack of response to treatment then contact us today.
Physiotherapy is very effective with musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs). In one study reported on the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy website, 80 per cent of people who had physiotherapy for their MSD were able to carry on working and did not have to go off sick.
One of the largest scientific analysis of low back pain called ‘The Manga Report’ reported that spinal manipulation such as utilised by a chiropractor was more effective than alternative treatments for back pain treatment. It also found that manipulation was also safer than other medical interventions utilised.
