At Ballsbridge Physiotherapy Clinic, we are Chartered Physiotherapist who treat a wide range of injuries and conditions. Our approach to treatment is to make a detailed assessment of your symptoms and following diagnosis, plan a treatment programme which could include manual therapy, exercise and strengthening programmes (core stability) and electrotherapy (ultrasound, laser, interfential, muscle stimulation and biofeedback).
At our clinic we adhere to the ISCP’s guidelines for treating children. This means that children under the age of 18 need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian to physiotherapy appointments.
All major health insurers reimburse for physiotherapy treatment without referral from a doctor or consultant. Additional reimbursement is also available from the Revenue Commissioners by completing a MED 1 form. However, this requires a referral from a family doctor or consultant. Both Aileen MaGuire and Sarah Brady are accredited physiotherapists for the Irish Life Health Back-Up programme. Check with Irish Life Health to see if this direct payment option is available to you or contact us here to speak with one of our consultants.

The improved function is accomplished by controlling motion, providing support through stabilizing gait, reducing pain through transferring load to another area, correcting flexible deformities, and preventing progression of fixed deformities.
