William is a native of Carlow and comes from a sporting background, with Gaelic football being his first love. He played with Carlow from a young age right up to senior level. In 2005 he broke his leg against Offaly in the senior championship and it was this that led him to become a physiotherapist.
William has undertaken a number of post graduate courses to further his knowledge, keeping up to date with all the latest literature, allowing him to make the correct and best clinical decisions for the benefit of the patient.
Louise is also native to Carlow area. Many sports-related injuries and a love for helping people get back to the things they enjoy lead Louise to Physiotherapy as well as her fascination with how the body works. Louise has graduated from University of Limerick and enjoys all areas of Physiotherapy.
Prior to this Louise was a sports massage therapist and has many years experience working with teams and sporting individuals. She’s most proud of her work with the amputee team and all they have achieved through hard work and dedication. A constant quest for more knowledge sees Louise undertake courses to continue her professional development. Being able to use up to date knowledge to make the best clinical decisions for her patients to improve their quality of life is of utmost importance to her.
I really enjoy the variety of working with people of all ages to help them achieve their individual goals and return to functional activities following various injuries or illness. Regardless of a person’s age, physical ability or fitness I feel it’s important to help and encourage everyone to lead a physically active lifestyle that suits them.
I have worked in both inpatient and outpatient settings within the NHS in the UK gaining experience with various client groups across musculoskeletal, respiratory and neurology specialities. As part of my role here in Power Physiotherapy I also work with the residents of Hillview nursing home.
I previously studied for a degree in Athletic Therapy and gained experience working with various GAA teams, cross country teams and American football teams. Having also experienced various sporting injuries myself, I enjoy working with athletes and guiding them through both the emotional and physical aspects of injury.
I would describe myself as being mainly a manual therapist. I like to use exercise prescription and hands on manual techniques to manage the various musculoskeletal conditions that we see in the clinic. I have garnered almost 6 years of private practice experience and have been lucky enough to work in busy clinics in Dublin, Sydney and Kilkenny.
As part of my role here in Canta Clinic I also provide weekly physiotherapy treatment to the staff
I enjoy working with clients towards achieving their individual goals using evidenced based treatments. I have a passion for the promotion of a healthy lifestyle and active ageing, helping clients to maintain independence and to enjoy a good quality of life. I also have a keen interest in sports rehabilitation and injury prevention.
I have over 25 years of experience working as a Chartered Physiotherapist both in a hospital setting and in private practise.
I completed post graduate education in Acupuncture, Neurology and Healthcare Management.
I have extensive experience of working with patients in rehabilitation settings following orthopaedic surgery and neurovascular incidents like stroke and head injury.
