Ross Allen Profile: Physio Clinic Director & Back Pain Specialist
My own interest in injury rehabilitation came about through a significant injury which I suffered while training at a county football training session at the age of 15. I tore my hamstring while kicking the football. Little did I know at the time that this would turn in to a recurring injury that would eventually give rise to low back pain also.

I sought treatment from local practitioners including several physiotherapists & a chiropractor. Eventually after missing an entire season I made it back successfully. This experience helped me in developing my passion for physiotherapy and for helping others who may be going through a similar experience.
I first started treating back pain and injuries in 2002 and since then my practice has evolved significantly & is reflected in the amalgamation of knowledge across a range of therapies and approaches utilised at Newbridge Physio Clinic.

Swedish University research examined the quality of education undergone by Chiropractors and demonstrated that the quality of 4-5 years of University training undertaken by Doctors of Chiropractic is the equivalent of Swedish medical training.

Read About Knee Pain Treatment at Naas & Newbridge Physio Clinic
After developing knee pain almost ten years ago after developing cartilage damage in my right knee, I had an MRI scan and follow-up consultation with an orthopaedic surgeon. Based on this, I was advised to undergo knee surgery. After reviewing the evidence, I decided that I would continue to apply a physiotherapy rehabilitation programme. Gradually, the knee improved to the point where I can play sport and train 5-6 days per week with minimal pain or swelling. This experience thought me the value of tailored rehabilitation in knee injury rehabilitation and also the importance of being consistent and having clear targets in order to achieve pain relief goals, especially when a condition is more chronic in nature.
Shoulder Pain Treatment at the Physio Clinic Having had issues with shoulder injuries, including rotator cuff tendon injuries and a broken clavicle, I have developed an appreciation of the nuances of shoulder rehabilitation. My personal experience has given rise to a clinical interest in shoulder rehabilitation. Because the shoulder is naturally very mobile this can create a degree of instability and can predispose to injury. If your looking to find a solution to your shoulder pain then call us today and we will help set you on the road to recovery.
