Sports Injuries are our speciality at Clonmel Physiotherapy & Sports Injury Clinic! Our Chartered Physiotherapists have additional masters degrees in sports physiotherapy/medicine and you can be confident that you will receive the most up to date treatment and management.
People who participate in sport never like to be injured and are always the most keen to be back in action. Our goal is to have you back on the pitch, running that extra mile, jumping the last hurdle or swinging that golf club in the shortest, safest time as possible. We feel that correct and early diagnosis of sports injuries is the cornerstone for effective treatment and this is where we excel from our years of diagnostic training.
Sports injuries can be acute in nature following a traumatc injury, or overuse and become chronic over a period of time due to incorrect training or underlying biomechanical abnormalities.

I attended Clonmel Physio Clinic with sharp pain around my kneecap when running that had been present for 4 months. Fran Mulcahy assessed me and diagnosed it as runners knee. She treated it twice with manual therapy and advised me in an exercise program including foam rolling. I haven’t looked back since and ran the Dublin City marathon in 2013. Thanks Fran
