We moved to 16 Chapel Lane, Swords – [this is directly opposite the church gates], in 2007 having started on Main Street . The clinic is now on ground level for easier access and we have free parking on site for patients.
Our approach to physiotherapy is distinguished by placing an emphasis on the cause of the problem, not just the management of its symptoms.Through comprehensive assessment and examination we will tailor an individualized treatment plan for the patient. We will set goals to enable the patient to return to work, sport and hobbies as soon as possible.
We have a clinical commitment to highly skilled care including orthopaedic manual therapy such as joint mobilizations and soft tissue techniques, specific therapeutic exercises and patient education.
