After many years’ experience I have developed a precise approach to diagnosis and treatment. The first step to solve any problem is to understand it. In a consultation I listen to how you feel and how a problem is affecting your life. A full assessment then leads to an understanding of the problem, combining my extensive experience with your knowledge of the problem. It is empowering to understand what is going on when a diagnosis is explained really well. A specific treatment plan is then explained to suit you. The aim is to help the body to heal itself and for you to feel well and be able to do the activities you enjoy.
In planning treatments in-clinic your safety is the absolute priority. COVID-19 safety protocols have been in place since reopening in June. I am receiving ongoing updates from the ISCP and HSE.
We are working in a new way. We are scheduling carefully so that contact with other clients is avoided. I have the appropriate PPE, a social distancing plan and rigorous hygiene protocols, all of which we are explaining to each client. All surfaces are fully sterilised between each client. Facemasks are worn at all times, and I wear a faceshield also for certain treatments. I am planning your care to the highest standards.
I used to welcome people dropping in to the clinic with enquiries, but unfortunately this is not now possible. Clinic visits can now be by appointment only. All clients are screened prior to appointments to make sure their visit can proceed.
Enquiries are still welcome, now by phone, email or the contact form on this website. We look forward to helping you.
My current plan - 20 October 2020 update:
The clinic is open by appointment only. In-clinic treatments can continue at all 5 stages of the Government's National Framework for Living With COVID-19. Physiotherapy is an essential service so you are permitted to travel to your Physiotherapy appointment, even if this is outside your 5km as it is an essential journey. The appropriate safety protocols are well established and carefully observed. Each person's individual health and the current level of risk is balanced to assess whether an in-clinic visit is advised.
For those who are limiting their contact I have found video telehealth is a very successful way guiding people to improvement.
At all levels of COVID restriction safety precautions continue, and we are still being guided to minimise the time in-clinic contact. Therefore for those aspects of assessment and treatment that can be done by telehealth I am using video as a part of the plan where possible.
Where a new problem needs to be assessed it is likely that the initial assessment and plan can be done by video. I can then give you the information needed to make an informed choice as to whether you wish have in-clinic treatment or stay with telehealth.
Just email or phone to make an appointment or enquiry.
Video Consultations are now an essential and useful part of clinical practice.
In spite of the appropriate precautions and my cautious approach to reopening many people may prefer video consultation over coming into a clinic over the coming months and I will support this fully.
Others may choose to stay with Video for the convenience. It has been enjoyable to have consultations with clients from locations only made possible by video - Madrid, Cork, Wicklow ...and even the southside of Dublin!
We are all adapting quickly to the Coronavirus. The unpredictability week to week means that in-clinic treatments, even when planned, may be subject to short notice change. I will continue to update information and assist clients through the challenges of this time.
I had a video consultation with Mark for a new wrist problem for which I had been unable to see my GP about. Mark guided me through an in-depth assessment of my issue, and was as thorough and knowledgable as ever...
Mark is a fantastic physiotherapist. I pulled a neck muscle in the morning and even though he was booked up for weeks, he heard how much pain I was in and fit me in during the lunch hour....
Excellent Physiotherapist and acupuncturist in Stoneybatter. Mark is very knowledgeable, and always provides great advice on exercises after his sessions...
My family and i have been going to Mark for years. I have been to other physios for sport injuries over the years but in my experiennce, i haven't come across a physiotherapist as knowledgeable...
