Brendan became a Chartered Physiotherapist after graduating from Ulster University with a BSc (Hons) in physiotherapy. Since then he has worked full time in the private sector while also studying a Masters (MSc) in Sports and Exercise Medicine, where he has been fine tuning his assessment, diagnosis and treatment skills. He has further qualifications in sports massage, kinesiology taping, sports taping and Pilates.
As a physiotherapist Brendan has developed specialized skills in the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of people with Musculoskeletal disorders, in which he utilizes a hands on, evidence based approach.
Brendan believes that it is a physiotherapists’ role to not only treat clients but also to educate them; providing them with the knowledge and tools needed to surpass their pre-injury and pain levels with the aim of preventing the issue from re-occurring in future. This level of focus is applied to every patient to help achieve their goals, whether they are sporting goals or goals to improve a patient’s quality of life.
Most of all Brendan has a keen interest in sports injuries, having gone through two ACL surgeries at a young age and successfully returning to sports. For his dissertation Brendan investigated and compared the effects of the different ACL graft options in young athletes.
Due to his experience as a patient undergoing both surgery and extensive rehabilitation Brendan can relate to the struggles both physically and mentally that an injury can have on a sports person, and can provide guidance throughout your journey.
Brendan also loves a challenge and likes to get creative with home exercise and gym programs often aiming to create challenges in order to maximize and enhance performance, not only in sport but in daily function as well.
Brendan takes weekly Pilates classes at advance physiotherapy & sports injury clinic with a focus on improving mobility and core strength, aiming to tailor exercises to help improve overall physical and mental health.
Brendan is a very keen sports person who plays Gaelic football at club level for Middletown GAA and football for Armagh Rovers FC. He enjoys regular strength and conditioning gym sessions alongside his team sports.
In the past he has completed 5km runs to raise money for local sports clubs and charities.
