Job Title: Practice Therapist

Biography:

My name is Johana and I hold a B.Sc. in Applied Health Science and a Dip. in Physical Therapy. I am also qualified in Occupational First Aid and I am a member of the Irish Association of Physical Therapist (M.I.A.P.T)

As a therapist, I enjoy treating a wide range of injuries and chronic complaints that present to our clinic. Every individual is unique so every case presents a new challenge which keeps my profession interesting. 

 

I feel that my main strengths as a therapist are in gathering a full understanding of a clients presentation and how their symptoms impact upon the activities that they carry out on a day-to-day basis. Understanding this, helps me to develop a strong evidence-based assessment, treatment, home-care and rehabilitation plan for my client. 

 

If you are suffering from an injury or chronic complaint I would be delighted to talk to you to advise on what I can do to help. 

As an addition to my Physical Therapy qualification I'm interested in sports team and coaching, especially young children. I hold a Kickstart 1 & 2 FAI certificate. 
I'm very passionate about getting my patients back to full potential.
