Posture and Foot Assessment / Full Body Checkup

Much like a GP checkup or a dental checkup a physio checkup is useful for making sure you are physically in good shape without any areas of weakness or tight musculature etc.
It is particularly useful for athletes or people about to embark on a more serious training schedule such as a marathon or triathlon etc.
Finding potential problem areas and then working on strenghtening and stretching in that particular area will help prevent injuries cropping up later during your training. It will save you money and time in the long run and as we all know so well: An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!
Posture Assessment: price from €40
Posture & Foot Assessment: price from €80

“I found it great having someone I could trust looking after my exercise program – I felt so confident exercising, knowing that everything I was doing was going to be good for me."

Manual Therapy
Mobilisation / Manipulation of joints which have become stiff and sore. 
“I knew something was wrong when I could not look over my shoulder while reversing my car.  I just sort of put up with it for a while – after that first visit I realized how close I was coming to hitting my neighbours car!”

Soft Tissue Techniques
Massage, Myofacial release, PNF Stretching can be used to increase the flexibility of muscles that could not be otherwise stretched.

Taping and Bracing
Taping and prescription of braces are used to take the strain off sore or swollen joints and give them a chance to heal up. 
“I never would have expected that tape to work so well on my stiff knee – the very next day I woke up the best I’ve felt for years!”

Dry Needling
The use of acupuncture needles to deactivate  and resolve myofacial trigger points.  Trigger points are small areas of tension and tightness in the muscles which won’t relax even after stretching.  “I don’t know how those needles work, but after I saw you that ITB pain cleared up no problem.”

Exercise therapy or Rehabilitation
Exercise can be used to manage a whole host of problems – From that niggling calf injury, sore back to arthritic knee.  The key point to exercise therapy is that it is a progressive approach designed to use your muscles to take the load off your sore or recovering body. 

Prehabilitative exercises are used to teach you how to “turn on” certain muscle groups – such as the rotator cuff which supports your shoulder, deep abdominal muscles which stabilize your low back or Hip muscles which hold your pelvis level while you run. These exercises are often used in conjunction with some hands on therapy or a flexibility program.

Your Irishfit physio can also use exercise therapy to help “take you to that next level”. Strength, Endurance, Fitness and Flexibility are key to gaining control of your injury   Exercise here may include Yoga, Piliates or resistive programs.  We have the experience and knowledge to develop the right program for you.
