At DUBLIN.PHYSIO we specialise in treating individuals with sports injuries, ranging from the occasional runner to inter-county GAA players to Olympic athletes. We are committed to providing each individual patient with a thorough assessment, an accurate diagnosis of their injury and a progressive rehabilitation programme until the patient has fully returned to their sport. We have direct access to some of the leading sports medicine doctors in the country so if you require a medical review or surgical opinion at any stage of your rehabilitation this can be facilitated through our clinic.
