I am a Chartered Physiotherapist based in Cratloe, Co Clare. I specialise in the area of Women’s Health since 2006 and have experience treating a wide range of musculo-skeletal and pelvic floor conditions in both the female and male population. I treat individuals with sport injuries, Pelvic Girdle Dysfunction, Sacro-iliac joint issues, Neck Pain, Low Back Pain, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Coccyx Pain, Pelvic Organ Prolapse, Diastasis Recti Abdominis and any Pelvic Floor Dysfunction such as Urinary/Faecal Incontinence, pain after delivery and Dyspareunia.
As an APPI trained PIlates Instructor I teach classes as well as integrating Pilates movements into exercise programs for my clients. I completed a Masters in Western Medical Acupuncture in 2014 and use Dry Needling as an adjunct to other treatment techniques. I have conducted literature reviews on a wide variety of Women’s Health conditions to keep up to date with all the latest research in area of Women’s Health.
I qualified as a Chartered Physiotherapist in 1997 and have been a member of the Irish Society of Chartered Physiotherapists since. I am registered with Coru. Having worked in many different hospital and clinic settings I have gained experience in treating a wide variety of specialties in the adult and paediatric populations, such as Respiratory, Neurology, Musculoskeletal, Cystic Fibrosis, Paediatrics, Care of the Elderly, Orthopaedics and Women’s Health. As well as working in the acute setting of hospitals I have worked in Private Practice settings, firstly in other practices in the evenings and later in my own practice since 2013.
I am passionate about women’s health and have been lucky to work in the area of Women’s Health while I was having my own family. I had my four bumps and babies in the hospital where I worked and have had the priviledge to have met thousands of pregnant and postnatal women along the way, as well as work with some amazing professionals in the Limerick University Maternity hospital. I moved into private practice to allow a more flexible working week and found that it also allowed me to expand my practice.
Please be in touch with any queries; I have experience with all areas of women’s health and am happy to refer onwards if there is extra specialised help you need at any point.
