We pride ourselves in the high standard of professional care provided by our team of physiotherapists who know our patients and look after their individual needs.
Our excellent reception service offers full reception cover from 8am to 8pm because we believe in the importance of a voice at the end of the phone when making an enquiry or booking an appointment.

The 2 partners Maeve Whelan and Helen MacDevitt treat patients in the Clinic daily and are present to ensure excellent practice management.
Education and experience are of paramount importance to us. The team of chartered physiotherapists working in Milltown Physiotherapy has on average 7 years university education coupled with many years of valuable clinical experience in our practice. We regularly attend courses and conferences, are up to date on research and continuing professional development and provide regular inservice training. Our physiotherapists have presented at national and international conferences and have earned specialist member awards. The diverse range of skills and expertise amongst our physiotherapists allows us offer a high standard of treatment in many different areas of physiotherapy.
Outside of work, we are personally involved in international sailing, have represented our country in Hockey and in running, participate at high level in club golf, GAA, triatholons and watersports and so between us have the personal experience to deal with what presents to us. We have also treated international footballers but have yet to make selection on to the teams!

WHAT IS PHYSIOTHERAPY?
Physiotherapy is a science based healthcare profession which involves the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of physical dysfunctions and disorders.
PHYSIOTHERAPY IN IRELAND
In Ireland, qualified physiotherapists have received a degree from a recognised university. To become Chartered and attain a license to practice, the physiotherapist must register with the professional body, The Irish Society of Chartered Physiotherapists (ISCP).
Chartered Physiotherapists make an important commitment to quality health care and professional accountability as they are required to undertake continuing professional development programs to keep abreast of the latest therapeutic developments. In addition, chartered physiotherapists are bound to abide by a Code of Conduct which sets out expected standards of professional practice and have professional indemnity insurance, which protects patients in the very unlikely event of injury.
