You can be confident that we’ve got the expertise to help you with any type of muscle, articulation, bone or nerve problem.

We welcome new patients of all ages and levels of fitness!
Our chartered physiotherapists can help you recover from chronic conditions, surgery and all kinds of physical injuries – whether related to sports or not! Usually, treatment will be given at the first appointment, along with some advice and education.
We offer a €60 first consultation to all new patients.
Your physio consultation will take approximately 50 minutes.
Loose fitting clothes are fine. We’ll ask you to perform a series of range of movement tests so it’s best not to feel too constricted! Your physio will need to see the affected body part so it would be best to bring a pair of shorts if it’s a lower back, hip, knee, ankle, or foot problem and to bring a tank top or T-shirt if it’s a neck, upper back, shoulder or arm problem.
Symptoms and conditions we treat regularly:
- Physical Injury
- Sports Injury
- Sprains and Strains
- Chronic Pain
- Muscle Tension
Upon arrival, you will complete a simple health questionnaire that will allow the physiotherapist to know your associated conditions and your medical history. The assessment will begin with a discussion of the condition’s history and a subjective assessment. It consists of a series of questions that will help better understand your situation, your expectations and your complaints. Your physiotherapist may also ask you a few extra questions about any past medical history.
Your physiotherapist will then do a thorough physical assessment which can involve various physical tests, including the assessment of walking, posture, strength, range of movement, joint stiffness and more. We will evaluate the integrity of all the relevant tissues.
After this initial physical examination, we’ll be able to put all the findings together to make a diagnosis, develop a treatment plan and guide you on the best way to overcome your injury or pain.

Cork Physio Massage
We provide Deep Tissue massage and Sports massage
Sports massage earns its name from targeting injuries that are specific to sports, whereas Deep Tissue Massage is a less specific term for a massage technique that more specifically focused on relieving chronic muscle tension, reducing pain and treating overuse injuries.
Whilst some of the strokes are the same as in classic massage, the pace tends to be slower and pressure is applied more strongly, concentrating on problem areas. Your physiotherapist may use their forearms, elbows, fingertips and knuckles as well as their hands in order to break-up adhesions, which are bands of rigid tissue that can cause inflammation and restrict movement and circulation in the muscles.
Deep tissue massage and sports massage work to realign the different layers of tissue, treating the tendons, ligaments and fascia (the protective layer of tissues which surrounds the bones, joints and muscles) as well as the muscles to release tension, provide pain relief and reduce the risk of physical injury.
Our physios can avail of a vast range of treatment options, ensuring experienced and comprehensive care focused on your goals.
