Physical Therapy in Ireland is a hands on approach using palpatory skills for the safe and effective treatment of joint, muscle and peripheral neural problems, making it the ideal choice not only for athletes but for all populations from the office worker to the homemaker.
It involves a combination of manual techniques including deep massage, joint mobilisations, MET stretching and excellent up to date Rehab program's which are applied in accordance with current health principles.
These manual techniques allow the therapist to identify and treat joint and soft tissue problems (muscles, ligaments, tendons, fascia and peripheral nerves) effectively. Each treatment is uniquely suited to the specific needs of the individual and the aim of each treatment is to deal with the underlying or causative factors rather than just with the pain alone.
