Colin Brennan - MISCP, MCSP
Colin is a County Offaly native and a graduate of the U.K’s Teesside University. Having completed a Bsc (Hons) in Physiotherapy Colin also holds a National Cert in Applied Physiology and Health Science.
Having worked in a range of clinical settings in the North East of England Colin returned home to Ireland and undertook to work in the private sector prior to establishing Physio Central.
Being an active and keen sportsman Colin has been involved in the physiotherapy management of a range of clubs over the last number of years. ‘After having suffered numerous injuries while playing G.A.A. and other sports it helps to know what sports people go through and the frustration borne from injury of any kind’.
In addition to sports people, the clientele which Colin now treats varies from sports injuries and occupational injuries to orthopaedics and back pain. The great professional links which have seen Colin establish Physio Central together with in depth knowledge of injury and a commitment to work always within the scope of current best practice ensure clients of all levels benefit from clear guidance and re assurance on the rehabilitation journey.
