Back to Health

We know the back connects the nervous system of our entire body, our reactions, our movement and our sensation, all travel back and forth from our backs spinal cord to our brain. So when we feel pain in our back, even from small stretches or tears to our backs muscles or ligaments, we can feel intense prolonged pain. That’s why back pain is the most common reason in Ireland for people to take time off work. Your Physio is qualified to assess the unique structure of your back and spine, identifying any muscle injury/ imbalance, joint or disc issues which may be the cause of your back pain, or any radiating leg pain/ sciatica.


Treatment will consist of back pain relieving techniques such as soft tissue massage, dry needling and nerve glides. While mobilising the joint and restoring the back’s muscle balance. Exercise management is extremely important for full recovery. Your physio will guide you through a customised exercise program to improve your movement, flexibility and core stability. We work to find the root cause of your back pain, by providing a tailored treatment plan, long term guidance and support. So you can get back to pain free living.

I was so relieved and thankful to discover Sandycove Physiotherapy Clinic in seeking help for long term back injuries. I was almost losing hope this being the 4th physiotherapy practitioners I had attended since the accident. I received a personalised solution focused approach that included dry needling, massage techniques and exercises for both immediate and long term relief. I am so grateful all the staff, Áine and Julianne for their deep understanding and caring approach.
