General Treatment

Nicholas Lalor MSCP

General Appointments

A standard appointment consists of assessment, diagnosis, treatment and a personalised rehabilitation program. Each patient is allotted between 45 and 60 mins per session. Appointments take place at the HQPhysio clinic based at Birr Pool & Leisure Centre. For people of reduced mobility or those unable to travel, home visits offer an alternative.  An initial assessment will take place to see if physiotherapy at home is beneficial and appropriate.

Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy is the field of physiotherapy, which relates to disorders of the musculoskeletal system. This area of physiotherapy treats pain from, and injuries to, muscles, bones, joints, nerves, tendons, ligaments, cartilage and spinal discs including pre and post-operative treatment. If you have any pain which you think is caused by a musculoskeletal problem you can benefit from physiotherapy.

HQphysio carries out numerous assessments in settings such as schools for children with mobility issues, nursing homes and psychiatric settings. If you require a physiotherapy assessment please call and discuss what you require to see if your needs can be met.
HQphysio also offers a foot orthotics service which provides insoles. This service is not used as a standalone treatment but as an adjunct to your physiotherapy. These insoles can be used in any kind of footwear including football boots, runners and work shoes. Please call to discuss how this service works as part of your physiotherapy treatment.
