Rachel moved home from Scotland to join us at Physio Éireann. From the beautiful Maghery, close to Dungloe she has a short drive over the Gweebarra to our Ardara Clinic. Rachel completed her 3 year Physiotherapy Degree in the Caledonian University in Glasgow. She has also completed a Diploma in Health Sciences from the North West Regional College in Derry. Rachel comes to us with experience from the National Health Service in Scotland, working with patients both within the hospital setting and within the community. While in Glasgow, Rachel had the opportunity to work at the HMRC Naval Base in Faslane where she treated a variety of MSK conditions. Within this setting she gained a wealth of knowledge on the management of acute muscle, joint and soft tissue injuries. Rachel also has experience of acute sports injury management having worked with the Caledonian University Ladies Football Team.

Rachel is always wanting to further her experience, skills and knowledge on the most current physiotherapy evidence based treatment techniques. To date she has completed courses in Kinesiology Taping, Sports Massage and Pitchside First Aid. Rachel has also done her Clinical Pilates training with the Australia Physiotherapy Pilates Institute and teaches classes in Ardara.

We are delighted to have Rachel on board the Physio Éireann team and you can book your appointment with her now in our Ardara Clinic –
