Cork Physical Therapy

physical therapist corkHi, My name is Rose Marie O’Leary and I am a Registered Physical Therapist, Manipulative Therapist & Sports Injury Therapist. Cork Physical Therapy offers you a natural and drug-free approach to overcoming joint and muscular problems. Using a very “hands-on” approach, we identify and treat not only the symptoms, but in many cases, the underlying factors that may be causing the problem.

Each treatment is designed to suit you and your individual problem. We listen carefully to you and provide thorough consultation and assessment, to ensure that the most beneficial treatment is provided.

I have been attending Cork Physical Therapy Clinic for a number of years now and can truly recommend it. My issue is ongoing chronic back & neck due to bad posture on my own part and stress which causes me to tense up. The treatment I receive from Rose is excellent and it always alleviates the muscle tension for me.  While I know need to work to correct my own stress levels, it is great to know that when the muscle tension gets bad that I have somewhere reliable to attend that will resolve the problem promptly and effectively.  Her manner is pleasant, professional and the advice is always good.  She has never suggested token repeat treatments for me which gives me personally that extra little peace of mind that I am receiving genuine, proper professional and adequate treatments every time!”

I have received treatment from Rose over the past few years for a back injury sustained in a car accident. Rose has always been able to arrange a convenient appointment with me, sometimes at short notice. She has always been able to advise me on the best course of action for recovery. Rose makes sessions very enjoyable due to her friendly and professional manner and has always been able to put me at ease. I can not recommend Rose highly enough as a therapist.

I had been under the care of a number of different osteopaths for several years for persistent back pain when The Physical Therapy Clinic first opened in Passage West. The treatments I had been getting never helped my back, but did help the associated neck and shoulder pain.
After a severe bout of coughing put my back out completely I tried Rose, as she was able to squeeze me in on the day. Walking out of the clinic I thought my back felt surprisingly improved. By the next day my lower back pain was gone completely, and still has not returned at this point – nearly 5 years later. I’m very grateful to Rose, and always recommend
her to friends.
