  • Darragh RocheDarragh Roche

    I have been experiencing awful pain in both achilles while playing football for the past two years. It has been a serious hindrance on my ability to play. After 4 appointments with Keelan, which included massage therapy and a series of tailored stretches and exercises focusing on strengthening my achilles, the pains began to subside. Each week brought a new set of routines again fully tailored to my injury and how I can maintain a strain free achilles. His attention to detail with regards to my specific injury is commendable.

    I would highly recommend BR Physiotherapy to anyone with that annoying strain or any ongoing niggle you’ve been experiencing. Keelan will take the time to analyse and present a solution suited to your specific injury/strain and ensure it will remain strain-free.

     First time going to a physio. Thought I had a hip injury but Keelan quickly discovered it was actually my glute. The deep tissue treatment released a lot of built up stress. Between that and the exercises recommended and demonstrated by Keelan the pain is fully gone.

    Keelan is a great physio. I was wrongly diagnosed with plantar fasciitis but through consultation he figured out what I have is more of a tendon issue. Sessions are long and he explains everything very well. Would recommend him big time.!

    I couldn't recommend Keelan highly enough. He was so conscientious and knowledgeable. He took the time to ask plenty of questions to gain a detailed insight into my reasons for arranging a physio appointment. He was able to identify and explain the cause of my knee/leg pain and delivered effective treatment. He also provided a selection of exercises and demonstrated each one, ensuring to check my understanding throughout. Absolutely top quality service!

    Came into Keelan with an ongoing shoulder issue that had plagued me for years. Had it seen to elsewhere but the relief was short-lived. Took him all of 5 minutes to assess the problem and within the hour it was resolved. He's a sound guy, easy to talk to and definitely knows his stuff!

    Very good service. First time going to Keelan with a recurring neck/shoulder problem. Keelan qualified my injury at the start of the appointment before proceeding to treating it.

  • Lena LinehanLena Linehan

    I came across Keelan on Instagram randomly when I was suffering badly with a back injury. From the first session Keelan got stuck in and had a hands on approach. After just one session my back was almost completely healed. I had so much more movement and as this was an injury that I had treated two years prior by another physio, I can say that this time around I saw a much faster recovery time due to Keelan’s approach. I couldn't recommend him enough within one week I was back to my normal self which I'm so grateful for!

    I had an urgent back issue and spoke with Keelan by phone who then had me in for an appointment on the same day. He was able to resolve the problem there and then and as a result I am now able to get back out on the golf course. This was a remarkable turnaround in such a short space of time. Well done Keelan.

    Having suffered a severe knee injury, there was little scope for me to return to sport. Keelan of BR Physiotherapy has been world class in helping me return to exercise. He tailored individualised programmes for my needs and worked with me step by step through the rehab. Thanks to Keelan, I can now safely exercise and play sports beyond what the doctors expected post-surgery. Highly recommend.

  • Phil EllisPhil Ellis

    I tore my ACL in May of this year. I had surgery soon after and linked in with Keelan for my rehabilitation. We are four months into my programme, and everything has gone brilliantly. I am seeing Keelan twice monthly, and my progress is better than expected. In 16 weeks , I am back to many functional movements and lifting close to max on a number of leg exercises. In the last 3 weeks, I have started running very short distances on it, and all feels fantastic. Keelan is a fantastic communicator and much of the rehab process is open dialogue, with Keelan naturally taking the lead. The plan for 2024 is to be back running long distance and I am confident we will achieve that. I have worked with a number of very good physios over the decades and Keelan ranks up there with them all. I would most certainly recommend Keelan to anyone in need of a physio.
