Madeline graduated from Trinity College Dublin with a Bachelor’s Degree in Physiotherapy. After graduation she spent several years at a private practise, treating patients with a whole range of issues. The practise was linked to a top local hospital and she gained deep experience in immediate and longer-term post-surgical rehabilitation, in particular spinal cases and other musculoskeletal conditions. An area she has deep passion for is Ankylosing spondylitis (AS), also known as Bechterew disease – a type of arthritis that causes pain and stiffness in the spine.
Madeline also has a lot of experience working directly with sports injury rehabilitation, including working with secondary school and Junior College netball and rugby teams. She herself is a keen sportswoman, and through continued professional development is always seeking to expand her knowledge base on proven new treatment methods.
As a physiotherapist, Madeline believes in a holistic approach to care, and hopes to guide her patients towards a speedy recovery via a combination of manual therapy, therapeutic exercises and ergonomics. She enjoys educating and discussing with clients the different approaches towards management and prevention of injuries and pain.
Specific areas of specialty include:
- Sports injuries
- Post-surgical rehabilitation
- Spinal conditions
- Women’s health
Outside of work, Madeline enjoys going to the gym and attending high-intensity interval training (HIIT) classes, as well as spinning and boxing classes. She loves to travel, and loves to try new foods – she is a self-confessed “foodie”!
