This was incredibly effective and the pain was much easier by the next day

4.5 50 Ultrasound Therapy

I contacted Paul with Achilles tendonitis, experiencing tenderness of the heel and stiffness in the back of the leg making walking very difficult and painful. I had sprained my ankle 3 months earlier and walking since then had been difficult. An X-ray showed no break.

He arranged a speedy appointment after a few WhatsApp exchanges.

He advised dry needle treatment and some ultra sound afterwards. This was incredibly effective and the pain was much easier by the next day. He followed up the treatment with a suggestion for extra stretching exercises for the foot and ankle, also brilliant and effective.

I live a couple of hours away from the clinic but the treatment was well worth the journey.
I found Paul online and checked out his credentials. He was very professional and had a nice approachable manner. My treatment cost €60 for the session. Great result.

Hi Gillian I had wondered how u we’re getting on. It was a pleasure to be able to help u with your injury - delighted with the outcome and hopefully u won’t need to be trekking up to see me in the foreseeable future. All the best to ye both. Regards Paul.

What I appreciated most, were the therapist hands-on approach and his honesty

5 50 Physiotherapist Consultation

I had a rugby injury and chose this clinic because Paul had quite good reviews as well as a background in rugby. I had a number of sessions with him and the results speak for themselves. What I appreciated most, were Paul’s hands-on approach and his honesty. He let me know up front that if he could not fix the problem in the first two sessions, that I’d have to get an MRI or see a doctor. I’m so impressed that I’ve already recommended a few of my friends.

My initial impressions were good. I filled out a questionnaire in the waiting room before we began. Had four sessions of around 45 minutes each. I wasn’t given any medication, just some exercises to do at home. During the were, Paul was very practical and he helped me do some rehabilitation exercises. Unlike some other physios I’ve encountered, he didn’t expect me to do all the work on my own. This was great.

I will definitely be returning in the future

5 50 Deep Tissue Massage • Paid: €60

Went to Paul for a full body deep tissue massage after a few months of heavy training. The treatment included dry needling, cupping and deep tissue massage to tight muscles. He explained everything he was doing and let me know some problem areas that would require extra stretching. Got great relief from the treatment and found it very informative. 10/10 would recommend and will return in the future.

I'm happy with my experience here

4.5 50 Sports Massage

I chose this clinic as it was local to me and the first clinic that appeared when searching WhatClinic. The clinic itself was fine. The sports massage treatment I received was good value and what I expected to pay.

It was only a one time appointment and I'm happy with my experience here.

Thank you who ever you are glad I was able to help. I appreciate you taking the time to post a review, Regards Paul

Job Title:
  Practice Therapist
Biography:

Hi my name is Paul im a NeuroMuscular Physical Therapist (NMT) with added qualifications in spinal adjustment, deeptissue/sports massage, Dry needling, electrotherapy, Chines cupping Kenesio tapping, taping and strapping (matches events etc) 

Im fully insured and a member of the ANMPT.

 

 

How we are different is that you get a combination of treatment's so as an example somebody with a neck back pelvic issue can get electrotherapy/dry needling, deeptissue massage and finally be spinally adjusted thats 3 treatments in one, most physio's dont adjust and most chiro's dont do any bodywork. as well as other treatments like chinese cupping etc.. 

 

I treat people mostly at my clinic but also do work for sports clubs, match day strapping, rubouts, treatment during and post games/events etc.

I played senior rugby for Highfield for a decade and you name the injury ive had it and treated it.

Half of my clients dont have sports injuries so i get alot of work related (manual workers/sitting in front of laptop) or any of the day to day aches strains or sprains or just a relaxing deeptissue massage!
