Adrian is a Chartered Physiotherapist and clinic owner at Physio Solutions. He graduated from UCD in 2004 with a BSc (Hons) in Physiotherapy. Following this he started his career in the Mater hospital in Dublin working with a variety of different medical and physical conditions.
Following this he decided to travel to Perth, Western Australia to further improve his skills in the area of ‘hands on’ Manual Therapy and completed a post-graduate certificate in Orthopaedic Manual therapy from Curtain University. He gained further private practice experience before opening up Physio Solutions in Gorey in 2008. His two main areas of interest are in manual therapy and exercise as medicine. He enjoys seeing a diverse range of clients and gets particular satisfaction treating those with longstanding or chronic pain. He strives to ensure a lasting relief from pain and dysfunction for his clients. He has trained extensively in the area of exercise prescription and he uses many different approaches depending on his client’s needs. From postural control, and stability exercises to ensure efficient pain free movement; or resistance training to improve exercise capacity, performance or strengthen a particular injured structure.
In recognition of the importance of rehabilitative exercise he developed the rehab gym at Physio Solutions to have the facilities available to provide the best standard of care. He has served as head physiotherapist to both the Wexford senior Football and Hurling teams and he currently looks after the Naomh Eanna GAA teams. He has also trained in the areas of Dry Needling, Orthotic prescription, Injection therapy and Vestibular rehabilitation.
In his spare time Adrian enjoys keeping fit. He claims he was a half decent rugby player but now he happily looks after the Gorey under 10’s. He is a keen golfer and he also coaches kid’s golf in Courtown golf club. He enjoys gardening and beekeeping and he currently has 6 hives of bees. He is also an avid kitesurfer and has travelled all around the world to do this. He has three kids Dylan, Jessica and Roxie.
Enda graduated with a BSc Honours of Physiotherapy from University of Ulster 2010. Following this he worked in the NHS in Belfast where he gained varied experience in the acute hospital setting.
