About


Dermot completed his Masters Physiotherapy degree from Kings College London after graduating from Trinity College Dublin with a degree in Neuroscience. Since then he has engaged in further Masters level education, partaking in the Advanced Neuromusculoskeletal course at the University of Hertfordshire.

Dermot initially gained vast experience working in a busy outpatient department in the NHS where he also became involved in a large multicentre clinical research trial of shoulder conditions.

He has a keen interest in music and performing arts and has gained extensive experience in treating performance associated musculoskeletal injuries. He has also been involved in high level sports rehabilitation with a number of Gaelic football and soccer teams in both London and Dublin.

Dermot is acupuncture trained and has a specific interest in biomechanics and treatment of upper limb conditions.

Outside of work he enjoys keeping fit with the gym, football and tag rugby. He has played the violin since an early age, completing all grades at the Royal Irish Academy of Music and has won several All Ireland awards in traditional Irish Music. He can occasionally be spotted plying his musical trade in various festivals around the UK and Ireland!

I really appreciated that Dermott talked me through everything he was doing and why and what he observed and then gave me an indication of the approach/course of action he wanted to take - I really appreciate that because I am interested to know and I do have some knowledge - I think some practitioners don't talk you through things on the assumption that you wouldn't have a clue what they are talking about - as I do know a bit about it I find that annoying. He was confident, friendly and professional. I am very happy to come back and see him again.

Dermot fixed my foot problem, Plantar Fasciitis. He was friendly and knowledgeable and explained my symptoms and treatment clearly. I was ready to play tennis again after 4 sessions and hopefully won't be seeing Dermot again anytime soon! Thanks Dermot.

Dermot was brilliant - I had a pain in my lower back that was so deep I couldn't properly describe where it was. At the first session he pinpointed it exactly and at the second session he figured out exactly how to fix it. By the third session I was done. He is friendly, chatty, knowledgable and is able to explain complex problems clearly in a completely unpatronising way. Highly recommended!
