Ferdia McCarthy

Ferdia qualified from Trinity College Dublin with an Honours Bachelor of Science Degree in Physiotherapy. Throughout this degree, Ferdia gained valuable experience working in various hospitals and private practices in Dublin. He is also a member of the Irish Society of Chartered Physiotherapists (ISCP).

Ferdia has been working in private practice since qualifying which has further enhanced his skills in the management of musculoskeletal disorders. Ferdia likes to use a combination of hands on treatment and exercise based interventions in order to prevent injury recurrence and to help all patients achieve their rehabilitation goals. He is committed to continued professional development participating in ISCP courses at every opportunity.

Coming from a sporting background, Ferdia has a keen interest in developing rehabilitation programmes specific to the patients sport to ensure the patient is ready to return to the playing field at the end of their treatment.

Operating out of Gym Plus in Mahon means Ferdia has a fully equipped gym at his disposal which allows him to prescribe gym specific exercises for patients who enjoy this style of workout. It also gives him the opportunity to ensure that patients who are avid gym goers are performing exercises in the gym with the correct technique to ensure that they achieve the best possible recovery from their injury.
