Rachel Whelan

Physiotherapy

Rachel graduated from Trinity College Dublin with an honours degree in Physiotherapy. Since graduating, Rachel has worked in private practice where she has gained a wealth of experience treating a broad range of conditions.

Rachel’s interest in Physiotherapy stems from her own sporting background, and as such she has a particular interest in the treatment and management of musculoskeletal and sports-related injuries. Coming from a sporting background, Rachel understands the importance of returning to activity as quickly as possible and recognizes the importance of effective rehabilitation in this.

Rachel is always looking to further her experience, skills, and knowledge on the most up to date evidence-based treatment techniques to ensure this. To date, she has completed additional courses in Clinical Pilates, Dry Needling, Ergonomic/Workplace Assessments and has also attended a masterclass for the treatment of shoulder pain and rotator cuff injuries. Rachel is also skilled in completing biomechanical assessments and the prescription of orthotic devices.

Rachel also has experience in treating pregnant and post-natal women and has an interest in all Women’s Health issues, completing training in Core and Pelvic Floor Foundations. More recently, Rachel has completed training to become a Certified Cancer Rehabilitation Therapist for the provision of manual therapy and exercise prescription for those affected by all types of cancer.

Rachel enjoys working with clients of all abilities and ages, and endeavours to give her best to facilitate a full and speedy recovery. Rachel thoroughly believes in the use of manual therapy in clinic and tries to use a holistic approach to finding the root of the problem.
