sports physiotherapy

No matter what level athlete or fitness enthusiast you are, sports medicine can help you recover from an athletic injury and learn how to prevent the injury from happening again. We offer diagnostics, physical therapy and a team of talented sports medicine professionals to help you get back in the game as quickly and safely as possible, whether you’re an adult, teen, or child.

Our sports physiotherapists are trained to develop strength and conditioning,flexibility programs and have sport specific manual therapy skills.

We have extensive experience in treating children and teens with sports injuries and conditions of the shoulder, elbow, hand, hip, knee, ankle, and foot. We strive to use the most conservative, non-invasive treatments when possible.

Whether you are professional athlete, a competitive player, or someone who enjoys athletics recreationally, your goal is a full return to performance with minimal risk of re-injury. Our sports rehab clinicians will perform a full physical examination of your biomechanical alignment, joints, ligaments, muscles/tendons, and nerves, to determine the precise diagnosis and extent of damage.

They will also take a thorough history to identify any potential training errors, which are common. Treatment options include Graston technique (utilized by Michael Phelps!), Shockwave Therapy (for chronic recurrent problems), athletic taping and neuromuscular stimulation for “slow-to-fire” muscles. A sport-specific strengthening and stretching plan is necessary to prevent recurrence of the injury. You will return to your sport stronger, more confident, and better equipped than ever!

I was suffering from chronic lower back pain for months. I attended Michael at physiologic in smithfield and found him very helpful and friendly. I got an MRI within one week and he explained my condition in plain english. Michael showed me how to manage my back pain at home and it is now a distant memory. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
I was treated by Niamh at physiologic in Lucan after my ACL reconstruction. I found Niamh very helpful and knowledgeable. I was also surprised to see the full Gym setup in the clinic so I could do my rehab in the clinic , it really helped speed up my recovery.
I attended Michael from physiologic at his Maynooth clinic for ongoing tension headaches. pain killers just didn’t work anymore. Michael treated me with some Dry-Needling and after 3 treatments my headaches were gone. He also showed me some exercises to do to prevent them coming back. Fantastic service, great staff.
