At Harrigan Physiotherapy and Sports Injury Clinic we pride ourselves on our professionalism and clinical excellence. We treat patients that present to our clinic with injuries that are relatively new (acute) or perhaps something that has persisted for a longer period of time (chronic). These issues vary greatly as the human body, in particular the musculoskeletal system, is a complex and intricate series of joints, muscles, nerves and connective tissue.
For various reasons, these structures can become injured, resulting in increased pain and reduced functionality. We aim to assess your complaint in a timely manner and make recommendations regarding treatment and injury management that will put you on course to resolving your issue.
We employ a modern and scientific approach in order to best establish the source of your symptoms and then, with your informed agreement, we will implement a treatment plan with a view to resolving your injury as quickly as possible. We regularly work with patients, General Practitioners or Consultant Specialists in order to improve treatment outcomes and patient satisfaction.
Why We’re So Good?
With a variety of treatment modalities available at the clinic, we are well-equipped for a multi-modal approach to treatment. Our services include dry needling, shockwave therapy, and functional rehabilitation, to name but a few.
Each injury and each patient are different! With our patient-orientated approach to assessment and treatment, we not only examine the presenting issue, but also the patient as a whole.
Our team have worked across a broad range of work environments, from hospital-based settings, private clinics, and professional sport, our team has the experience to manage a multitude of injuries.
