Ross Allen: Naas Physio Clinic Director & Back Pain Specialist
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 leg pain. With time, this evolved into chronic back pain, which led to me having to take a considerable time out from sport.
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 2002 and have extensive experience working in some of the countries top physiotherapy clinics.
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.
This experience has shaped my evolution as a physiotherapist and has helped me immensely in understanding patients needs when considering how best to manage your pain.

My Personal Journey:
Due to chronic overload of the cartilage of my right knee, I ended up with significant pain when running & squatting. At one stage, it got to the point where walking was painful. I could feel the swelling at the back of the knee and it took from the enjoyment of exercise. The severity of the pain led me to seek a surgical assessment in Tallaght in 2012. It was suggested that I undergo surgery a month later. After giving it deep thought and reviewing the knee research, I realised that this was not the best route to take. I refocused my efforts on physiotherapy based rehabilitation, determined to avoid an invasive intervention that may not be helpful.
Thankfully, it is now at a point where I can play sport most days of the week at a high intensity without any major issues. It is actually better now than it was 10 years ago. This experience has opened my eyes to the rehabilitation methods & mindset required for chronic, stubborn pain.
Knee pain is naturally prone to fluctuations. Often it appears impossible to identify what is aggravating pain and what makes it better. Developing an understanding of the mechanism of pain creates reassurance and the clarity required to successfully rehabilitate the knee
Knee Pain Interview by Naas Physio on KFM.
Clinically, I specialise in treating the conditions that I have experienced myself. Personal experience helps to develop a far greater understanding of an injury and nuances of rehabilitation. Over the years I have suffered from various shoulder injuries, including a broken collarbone after landing on the shoulder from a tackle. From this, I have developed a personal interest in shoulder rehabilitation. The shoulder joint is known for its complexity. Because it is so mobile and has an abundance of supporting structures including muscles and ligaments, it is more prone to injury. Having successfully eradicated my own shoulder pain, I understand how this condition can be particularly responsive to appropriate physiotherapy treatment. If you need advice on your own injury, then call us today and we would be glad to help you on the road to recovery.

A Decade in Education:
Member of Irish Society of Chartered Physiotherapists
The physiotherapy course developed my understanding of injury management through exercise prescription & movement analysis.
I.S.C.P. registered Chartered Physiotherapists have undergone 4 years of education and as a result are entitles to attain society membership
This Chiropractic degree was extremely in-depth and provided an excellent understanding of physiology and holistic healthcare.
Swedish University research has shown that as a result of the quality of 4-5 years of University training undertaken by Doctors of Chiropractic is the equivalent of Swedish medical training.
This degree course developed my hands-on treatment and manual therapy skills. This was very beneficial as this component of treatment is sometimes lacking in other courses.
