Below you will find testimonials from clients of the Performance Therapy Clinic, many of whom are elite practitioners of their art/sport, from athletes to dancers.
After 35 years involved heavily in the Irish dance scene, it is rare one comes across a physio as equipped and talented as Odran O Dwyer. His ability to prevent and cure is exceptional. Be it my own personal injuries, my competitive dancers or Riverdance and Lord of the Dance professionals, all have benefited from Odran’s expertise. If you are injured he will fix you. Simple as.
Coming from a Professional Triathlete and a Physical Therapist, Odran is by far the best Physical Therapist I have ever worked with. I have put huge demands on my body training for the World Championships Hawaii Ironman this year. Odran is the only Therapist I have faith in to help me with my injuries and also with the maintenance to keep my body working and injury free. He is passionate, knowledgeable, hard working, and kind. I believe with Odran coming from an elite athletic background himself, he understands completely the demands an athlete like myself has to put on my body. You’ll never be sorry you decided to go!
I have been going to Odran for the past 4 years, for regular treatment and in that time winning 12 national titles and representing Ireland on 9 occasions. I have no doubt that without Odran’s help, I would not be where I am today. I highly recommend Odran to anyone who needs treatment or maintenance work for injury. Thank you. Kevin.
As a practitioner of ITF Taekwon-Do I suffered a series of muscular injuries in the past few years which I sustained in sparring. The areas affected included knees, thighs, hips and back. I went to a physio to begin with but was not satisfied with the results. So, on the advice of a colleague, I went to Odran and within a couple of sessions he had sorted my initial issue, and has since sorted all my subsequent injuries in a timely and efficient manner.
I also developed serious RSI in my right hand as a consequence of using a computer mouse for 20 years, which Odran alleviated for me. On his advice I switched my mouse hand to the left and am now semi-ambidextrous!
Odran’s manner, knowledge, communication skills and professionalism are of the highest order, and I would not dream of going to anybody else for treatment of physical injuries.
My name is Rory Chesser, I am a middle distance athlete from Ennis who has represented Ireland at the European Championships. Currently I am the reigning and 6 times National Steeplechase Champion.
During the last 12 years, Odran has treated me for many injuries – from a torn abdominal muscle in 2006 to a very serious knee injury last year which required surgery in October. Throughout my treatments, Odran has been spot on with his diagnosis and rehab work. Besides this, I find Odran’s general massage and dry needling to be very beneficial.
Odran has been an athlete and has played Gaelic Football at the highest levels. He understands the body and along with this, understands the mind-set of athletes. Sometimes we can be impatient and return too quickly, thus causing more damage. For this reason he is not afraid to have a stern word if required.
I would highly recommend the Performance Therapy Clinic to anyone who needs therapy.
