Niamh graduated from Trinity College Dublin with a BSc (Hons) in Physiotherapy in 2007.
Soon after graduating, Niamh emigrated to Wellington, New Zealand, where she worked as a musculoskeletal Physiotherapist in a practice specialising in the treatment and rehabilitation of neck and back pain. While in New Zealand, she also provided Physiotherapy for the national Under 19 and Under 21 touch rugby teams.
Following Niamh’s time there, she relocated to Australia and spent over 6 years working at a private Physiotherapy clinic in Sydney, primarily managing patients with posture related pain, as well as long distance runners and triathletes. It was here that Niamh also qualified as a dry needling practitioner, a technique she regularly uses to treat soft tissue injuries.
Since returning to Europe, Niamh has worked in a private practice in Dublin, putting her experience to good use and treating a wide range of posture and running related injuries. She also has a great deal of experience in ergonomics, carrying out work place assessments and advising on ergonomic equipment.
As well as being a highly skilled Physiotherapist, Niamh is also a certified APPI Pilates instructor and has experience teaching on a 1:1 basis and of leading classes of up to 10 participants. She incorporates her Pilates training into the management and rehabilitation of injuries too, using it to assist in the improvement of biomechanics, movement control and to reduce injury risk in both recreational and performance athletes.
Currently, Niamh is studying for a MSc in Sports & Exercise Physiotherapy, which she hopes will further add to her knowledge and skills as a Sports Physiotherapist.
In her spare time, Niamh enjoys running, swimming and going to the gym. She’s completed a number of triathlons, ocean swims and half marathons. She’s also run a full marathon and is hoping to complete her second in the not too distant future. Having lived overseas for so many years, Niamh has not lost the travel bug and when she’s not in clinic or taking part in her next big challenge you’ll find her planning her next big adventure!
