Many people develop pain in a muscle, joint or their spine, on day to day activities or at work, rather than during sport. Common examples of this are patients who have back pain due to lifting something, shoulder pain due to a repetitive task or knee pain following gardening.

How I can help
musculoskeletal pain does not always occur as a result of a sports injury.
It can also occur as a result of an accident, a work-related injury, or as simply as a result of doing day-to-day activities. I offer a detailed assessment leading to an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan. The goal is to effectively treat your condition and return you to the activities you wish to do.
I worked for several years with Dr Martin McConaghy in my time on the Management Team with the Ulster Railway Cup Team. I always found him very professional and easy to get on with. His sports medicine knowledge and rapport with the players contributed significantly to our success
I first met Dr Martin when I played with Armagh back in 2003 or 2004 I had a series of ongoing injuries and niggles. I remember being frustrated and desperate to get back playing and training quickly. And I remember Martin being great as he would ask lots of questions and listen first of all to everything that was going on in regard to my injury profile. Martin would also investigate how much rest I was getting In between sessions; how much traveling I was doing and of course how much sleep I was getting. As a result of a comprehensive investigation and diagnostic, Martin created a comprehensive rehabilitation plan for me in conjunction with the physiotherapist and strength and conditioning coach. After 3 months on this program I was in the best shape of my life. I know Martin has worked with thousands of athletes since I first met him and that he has worked with Ireland and Munster stars, however he is as humble and as athlete / player centered as ever.
During Martin's time as Head of Medical here in Munster Rugby he was a key leader in the world class medical management of players. His superb clinical skills enabled us to obtain fast, accurate diagnoses on injuries and design world leading rehabilitation programs. His dedication, knowledge and understanding of sports were key components of driving excellence within the medical department.
