Services & Fees

Services Provided

Here at stmarysphysio, located at the newly built St Mary’s Primary Care Centre in Gurranabraher, we believe physiotherapy has a number of different roles that include:

 - Assessment and diagnosis of new or recurrent musculoskeletal problems

 - Attempt to assess and out-rule musculoskeletal causes of symptoms relating to underlying medical problems

 - Educate in the role of exercise and rehabilitation of current problems, in prevention of recurrences, and the often forgotten aspect of prevention of injury in the first place.

What might we do to provide this:

  • Assess/Examine
  • Diagnose
  • Explain to the client of probable causes
  • Treat
  • Provide a Home exercise programme
  • Provide advice in relation to general lifestyle to lower risk of recurrence of symptoms

St Mary's Physio has a firm hands on therapy approach to manual therapy and each person is often given an exercise programme personalised to their condition and lifestyle . We liaise with GP’s, Consultants, Occupational Health specialists, Personal Trainers, Sports Coaches etc. to ensure speedy and seamless return to full activity.

Everyone and anyone can attend for physiotherapy, no referral necessary from an allied health professional. 
(Please see the Appointments section of this website for details on how to make your appointment.)
