What attracted me to this field of physical therapy and osteopathy is that I played sports much of my life, both GAA and soccer. While I love team sports, there is always the fact that injuries occur, whether it is sprained ankles, pulled muscles or ligament injuries. Two things have developed my understanding of the mechanics of injury recovery. They are: learning to heal from my injuries and working with patients in their journey towards injury recovery and prevention. It has been an incredibly rewarding journey. Each facet of osteopathy I have studied has given me new insights into the body’s ability to recover and heal from injury. So, patient treatments are aimed to restore the normal function and stability of the body’s joints and tissues in order to help the body heal itself. In working with each patient techniques are chosen based on the their individual needs and the symptoms they have reported. Home exercises may also be prescribed to accompany the treatment plan.
