Professional Golfer - Alan's patient
“If I have a neck or elbow problem, AK is the man that I always seek out when I’m back home”
I first met AK in the late 90’s as I was embarking out on a career as a professional golfer. His magic hands were always available to me anytime I was in trouble with the inevitable problems golfers meet when playing competitive golf. Even though I now spend most of my time abroad on Tour, if I have a neck or elbow problem, AK is the man that I always seek out when I’m back home. It’s reassuring to know that I’m in the care of the best hands in Ireland. It’s as simple as that!

Rugby Correspondent, Irish Times - Alan's patient
“I'd never hesitate recommending him to others!”
I first came across Alan Kelly on a Heineken Cup trip to Milan with Leinster ten years ago. I'd heard he was a top class sports physio through the AIL club scene with Old Wesley but it was Leinster players who regularly referred to him as The Great AK, and "his hands like magic". He's helped sort out my knee and is the physio I send my boys to, and I'd never hesitate recommending him to others.

“Bláithín is amazing, so personable and I feel I can be really honest with her”
I’ve been attending Bláithín for about 3 years now. I went with a knee issue (well both knees really!) post steroid injection. I have attended other physio’s In the past. Bláithín is amazing, so personable and I feel I can be really honest with her. She is the only physio who is also like a personal trainer because she sends you home with a personal programme to build up your strength which has been key for me. My knees have never felt better. I have not needed any more injections.

"Bláithín provided a great programme, guiding me back to playing rugby."
I would highly recommend Bláithín as a physiotherapist. I have gone to her for a number of years with many different injuries. After an ACL injury, Bláithín provided a great programme, guiding me back to playing rugby. I have always found her extremely professional and an expert in her field of work. Bláithín is always approachable, willing to help and provide advice for any questions I have. I can’t recommend Bláithín enough.

"Post surgery Bláithín was brilliant."
Bláithín took me through my ACL rehabilitation from start to finish. Advised me on the best option for surgery and provided key strengthening exercises to carry out before the surgery. Post surgery Bláithín was brilliant. She was always positive and made the rehab process as enjoyable as possible. Nothing was rushed and all goals were met. I tore my ACL and damaged Meniscus in April 2017 and was back playing rugby the following January and my knee now feels stronger than ever. I cannot thank Bláithín for her support throughout the whole rehabil

Bláithín’s patient
"Blaithin played a fundamental role in my recovery from a serious neck injury following a horse riding incident"
I first attended her treatment rooms in 2017 at a time when surgery was the only option facing me. Blaithin's knowledge, dedication and ability to explain the path required was so reassuring and helped me see light at the end of the tunnel, after months of severe pain. In addition, Blaithin's in-depth knowledge and experience gained from dealing with leading surgeons and understanding their processes and individual approaches was crucial to helping me make decisions and ultimately, to my road to recovery.

"Energetic, focused, goal-orientated, realistic"
After suffering a knee injury which wasn't clearing up I was referred to Blaithin by a friend. With the many horror stories out there about knee injuries, I had become concerned that something more serious had occurred which was going to permanently effect competitive biking and a strong interest in skiing. What I met was a physio who was energetic, focused, goal-orientated, realistic and who followed an evidence based decision making process.

My injury: torn right knee ACL, playing football on astro pitch.
I met Bláithín first time 1.5 weeks post injury and under her supervision I started 6 weeks pre-surgery strength training. After that 6 weeks I attended ACL reconstruction surgery led by Mihai Vioreanu in Sports Clinic in Santry and started full post-surgery recovery program 8h after that. The program was well prepared, detailed and adjusted to my abilities and needs. As a reference points I was on stationary bike in day 4 post surgery and was able to walk short distances without crunches 3 days later.

"Bláithin was incredible supportive."
My 14 year old son, Joe, underwent meniscus repair surgery on his left knee in early February 2019. The recovery programme started on the 18th February when he attended Old Bawn Physiotherapy. Bláithin Brady explained in clear terms the length the recovery would take (6/7 months) and the demands that would be required before he could start playing sport again. After the initial shock, he followed Bláithin’s instructions to the letter for the next 7 months, making slow but real progress each month. Bláithin was incredible supportive.

"The structure she put in place and her positive attitude gave me confidence"
Bláithín’s attention to detail and commitment to her patients rehabilitation is second to none. I was very grateful for the individual attention she gave me whilst I was rehabilitating from an ACL reconstruction on my knee. The structure she put in place and her positive attitude gave me confidence I would return to sport from the first day I met her. She was always available if I had any questions and followed up all sessions with emails and video links to the exercises I had to work on for that week.

"Bláithín was absolutely excellent"
I would highly recommend Mihai and Bláithín to anyone with troublesome knee pain. The service Mihai and Bláithín provided was excellent from my first consultation (Feb 2020) right through to my last post op session (June 2020). As a GAA player, I was experiencing pain and swelling with my left knee during and after training / games. In terms of the post operative physiotherapy, Bláithín was absolutely excellent in this regard. The Covid 19 pandemic meant that we could not physically meet but I found the online video calls brilliant.

Emma's patient
"I highly recommend her - top class."
I had been suffering for months with acute nerve pain in the back of my neck and shoulders. I was referred to a Sports physiotherapist which actually made the issue much worse in my case. Emma was suggested to me by a family member and I made an appointment. She identified the issue to a tee in the first visit! The pain was completely gone after the treatment period and now I get a "tune up" every few months to keep it at bay. I highly recommend her - top class.

"Emma is very professional and knowledgeable"
After tearing my medical meniscus I attended the clinic for physio and exercise advice after surgery. I found Emma extremely helpful and supportive during my recovery process. Since then I have attended for treatment on my back and ankle. I also had dry needling done at the clinic which really helped with my injury. I would highly recommend the clinic and have done so to friends and family. Emma is very professional and knowledgeable and explains everything to you in a very friendly environment.​ ​

"I was very impressed with the treatment"
I have attended Old Bawn Physiotherapy Clinic for 2 separate injuries, both gave me a lot of pain. On both occasions, I was very impressed with the treatment. I got the correct diagnosis and the physio really too the time to help me understand the injury and how to heal it. The treatment was a wonderful combination of manipulation and exercises. The encouragement from the physio really gave me the confidence to pursue the exercises until I made a full recovery. I would happily recommend this clinic. ​
