Leg pain can be caused my a multitude of factors including irritated nerve tissue, referred joint pain from the back or hip and possible muscle/ tendon pain. Though a range of factors and conditions contribute to leg pain, at Sandycove Physiotherapy our clinicians are trained to diagnose the precise cause of your leg pain. Whether the pain is caused by an impingement from the sciatic nerve, bursitis or arthritis in the hip joint. We will quickly identify the cause of your leg pain and provide both hands-on care and guidance on building back strength and resilience to further injury in your leg.
Our therapists will check damage to tissue, muscle imbalance and joint mobility, identifying the precise factors contributing to your leg pain and the most effective method to recovery. Treatment will likely consist of mobilising the joints and restoring muscle balance with a specific care\ exercise plan to both correct and strengthen muscle form in the leg. While treating tissue damage in the leg with shockwave therapy, and any muscle knots with targeted massage and dry needling.
I have been attending Sandycove Physio for the past year with knee problems. From the moment I arrived I was put at ease in a lovely friendly environment with fantastic staff using up-to-date techniques you do not find in all clinics. Julianne has looked after me so well both pre and post total knee replacement last April and then prepared me for my second knee surgery three weeks ago. I know I went into both surgeries in a much fitter condition because of Julianne's great work and support. I am looking forward to continuing my sessions with Julianne next week and highly recommend this clinic and it's wonderful staff.
