- Orthoapedic Surgery: muscle, ligament, bone, joint, cartilage repairs, joint replacements and reconstructions
- Spinal & Neurological Surgery: spinal fusions, stabilisations and disc repairs
Our Chartered Physiotherapists work closely with Consultant Surgeons to devise rehabilitation programs to ensure your optimal recovery. We regularly attend courses that keep us updated on modern surgical techniques and procedures.
We rehabilitate athletes from the acute stage of injury, through recovery, to sports specific strengthening to return to play. We work closely with strength and conditioning coaches to progress athletes through the different stages of rehabilitation in a safe, controlled and progressive manner. We advise in weight training, cardiovascular fitness, plyometrics, Pilates and core stability, and sports specific exercises.
Rehabilitation is always indicated if injuries reoccur or pain lingers for longer than expected. Research has shown that the core muscles work slower and less effectively when a person experiences back pain. The core refers to the section of your body surrounded by abdominal muscles, pelvis, lower back and diaphragm. The core muscles help maintain good posture and prevent injury to the spine. Hence, if back pain is treated manually and pain settles, there is a high risk of reoccurrence if the core muscles are not strengthened and stimulated to work effectively again.
The good news is that our Chartered Physiotherapists are not only specialists in Manual Therapy but also highly trained in core strength training as well!
Pilates are effective exercises that we use to rehabilitate a wide variety of conditions. Pilates exercises range from gentle exercises for osteoperosis and arthritis to high performance exercises for elite athletes. Clinical Pilates are Pilates exercises, modified by a Chartered Physiotherapist for an individual injury and used as part of a rehabilitation program. Elizabeth Mulcahy and Frances Mulcahy have special interests in pilates and are qualified Pilates instructors.
