About Us

The IFSC Physiotherapy & Sports Injury Clinic established in 2007, is located in the heart of The IFSC Dublin 1, in The Custom House Square Medical Centre, providing easy access to people working and living around the IFSC and Dublin city centre. We previously operated our clinic in The Clarion Hotel IFSC.

Our team of Physiotherapists specialise in the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal pain and injuries including ligaments, muscles, tendons, bones, joints and nerves.

We offer direct contact with our Physiotherapists and our patients are rest assured that they can receive treatment from the same therapist at every visit.

Aoife and Simon are both Chartered Physiotherapists and CORU registered, the state regulator of health and social care professionals in Ireland. State registered Physiotherapists have to meet very high professional standards including continued professional development, commitment to data protection of patient information and ethical obligations.

In addition to completing Degree and Masters level education, we attend many practical courses each year to enhance our skills to ensure effective evidence-based treatment for our patients.

Unfortunately many of our patients are suffering from pain in more then one area of their body or pain that has been present for many months or years.  We strongly recommend you book a 60 minute appointment for you initial consultation to enable us to complete a thorough assessment, so we can get to the root cause of your problem and provide effective treatment at your first visit.  Standard 30 minute consultations are usually adequate for subsequent visits.
