Physical Therapist based in Cork City, Clonakilty and Skibbereen

My name is Meadbh O'Leary and since qualifying as a physical therapist in 2010, I have worked and gained invaluable experience in some of the busiest physical therapy clinics in the country. I have also worked with a number of GAA teams, worked at several marathons and triathlons, and have treated many runners during this time. I currently work in Cork and Skibbereen and hope to also have a base in Clonakilty set up in the coming weeks.

I have had great experience and success in treating some of the most common injuries experienced by long and short distance runners, i.e. Runner's knee, Chondromalacia Patella, Tendinitis, Shin Splints, Muscle Strains, Plantar Fasciitis, IT band syndrome, etc.

-    Dry Needling / Biomedical Acupuncture
-    Sports Injury Therapy
-    Primal Reflex Release Technique
