Hello my name is Paul MacDonald and I am the owner of Cork Sports Injury Clinic in Cork city. I am a fully insured and qualified member of the Association of Neuromuscular Physical Therapists (ANMPT). I also have qualifications in deep tissue, sports massage, dry needling, ultrasound and Joint Mobilization under Michael Monaghan (Osteopath).
I played senior rugby with Highfield Rugby Club for many years. During this time I had many injuries and by working with physios, osteopaths and chiropractors I developed a deep interest in sport injury rehabilitation. After my time on the pitch I became a coach. This included all ages from U16 to the senior team and coaching has given me great insights into rehabilitation. Being a Physical Therapist also allows me to work with individuals from Triathlon, Athletics and GAA. I perform Physio duties at events such as triathlons and athletic events. Match day Physio includes pre-match strapping and injury treatment on pitch during matches and post game treatments.
My studies include the National Training Centre (NTC) Cork, an academic partner of the University of Chester, as well as studying under the directorship of Mr John Sharkey BSc, NMT, MSc., an anatomist and exercise physiologist. John is a member of the Olympic Council of Ireland’s medical and science team.
Physio treatments are also for people who are just looking to de-stress or are out of balance. If you are suffering from chronic pain and want help to relieve the symptoms of back pain, neck pain or any injury then I can help with a combination of Physio ie Deep Tissue Massage, Dry needling, Joint Mobilization and cupping. These treatments can be done all together or separately as required.
If you would like more information or book a Physio appointment call today at 087-742 7654.
