Dun Laoghaire Physical Therapy Clinic – natural pain relief

Visit our Dun Laoghaire physical therapy clinic for treatment and rehabilitation for a variety of injuries. Our friendly Dun Laoghaire based physical therapy team take a hands-on approach to assessing your injury and work with patients for a practical plan for recovery.

As physical therapy is very much hands-on. A hands-on approach means the physical therapist can get full access to the problem area to accurately assess and test the muscles and joints – the foundations for creating a successful treatment plan.  Physical therapists are the specialists in the field when it comes to musculosketal health. Our comprehensive training and continuous professional development distinguishes us from other forms of mainstream and alternative therapists.

Is physical therapy the same as physiotherapy?

The distinction must be made between physical therapy and physiotherapy. In most countries they have the same meaning. In Ireland they are two very different modalities, the very same way as an osteopath’s treatment is different to a chiropractor’s treatment. No tools such as ultrasound, traction devices, laser or dry-needling are used in any of our treatments. The physical therapists ability to carefully palpate the soft tissue, assess posture and perform a range of muscle and joint testing are the foundations for the treatment plan. All appointments include a wide range of highly skilled, hands-on techniques to help solve the client’s condition or injury.

Physical therapy can include a vast range of techniques, including:

  • Swedish Massage
  • Trigger point therapy
  • Deep tissue massage
  • Myofascial release
  • Postural correction
  • Sports massage
  • Muscle energy techniques
  • Stretching and strengthening techniques
  • Injury Rehabilitation
  •  

    Is this your first visit to a physical therapist?

    If you have never had a physical therapy treatment before or have been left disappointed or disillusioned by other forms of therapy then you are in for a treat! The beauty of physical therapy as an alternative treatment is that it can be completely customised to each individual.

  • Chronic headaches and migraines
  • High blood pressure
  • Tendonitis
  • Digestive problems
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Anxiety attacks

 

How can physical therapy help me?

On a physical level, the advantages of physical therapy are endless. Promoting lymphatic drainage, eliminating harmful toxins to releasing connective tissue tension will simply leave you feeling better to continue your activities of daily living. Physical therapy not only provides pain and stress relief but may also boost emotional health.

Techniques range from gentle releases of the soft tissues, i.e. muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia, stretching of joints to retain normal ranges of motion and in some cases deeper soft tissue work to reduce stubborn adhesion’s and inflammation in the muscles and fascia.
