About Our Staff

  • Core qualifications

    All our therapists are Chartered Physiotherapists. This is a fundamental requirement for all therapists working in the Shannonside Clinic.

  • Professional memberships

    As Chartered Physiotherapists we are all members of the Irish Society of Chartered Physiotherapists, and the World Confederation for Physical Therapy.

    In addition we hold memberships of the following professional organisations:

    • Manipulative Association of Chartered Physiotherapists
    • The Irish Society of Orthopaedic Medicine
    • Chartered Physiotherapists in Manipulative Therapy
    • Chartered Physiotherapists in Sports Medicine
    • Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (UK)

How we strive to be the best

  • Continuing Education. All Chartered Physiotherapists are required to complete a significant number of hours yearly in ongoing professional education. This can be divided between formal full time courses, reading of medical literature, attending informal inservices and involvement in professional activities such as sitting on committees or volunteering at sports events. Members of the Irish Society of Chartered Physiotherapists must demonstrate that they have complied with this requirement before they are permitted to renew their annual membership. Here in the Shannonside Clinic we are very pro active in the area of continuing education. We have weekly inservices where we work on either group or individual research into and presentation of topics of clinical interest. Our current areas of interest are Anterior Cruciate Ligament rehabilitation, and the use of Nintendo WII Fit in treating balance and strength dysfunction.
  • Case Conference. We firmly believe in the value of mentoring and brainstorming. We hold weekly case conferences where we discuss clinical cases of particular interest or complexity. In this way more senior staff can share the benefit of their experience, more recently qualified staff can add the benefit of recent developments in research, and everyone can benefit from a fresh approach. see
  • Followup and referral. The Shannonside Clinic has a well established network of medial professionals that provide further services for our clients. This ranges from neurosurgeons to GPs, with a wide range of specialisms in between.
