Aisling Creighton (MISCP) qualified from University of Bradford 2001 graduating with BSc(Hons)Physiotherapy. Having gained valuable experience working in the core rotations in St Vincents University Hospital for 2 years, I then travelled to Curtin University in Perth, Australia and completed Certificate in Manual Therapy and worked in Sydney.
On returning to Ireland 2004, I worked in Merlin Park Regional Hospital in the spinal assessment and rehabilitation rotation and University College Hospital Galway again covering core rotations. There are 19 areas of the physiotherapy profession one can specialise in and I chose the path of orthopaedics, neuromusculoskeletal and sports injuries. With this in mind, I began working full-time in private practise and gained an enormous amount of experience in the 3 facilities of employment, namely Claregalway, Dublin, and Roscommon. While working in Roscommon, I had the great opportunity of being 1 of the Chartered Physiotherapists providing services to Longford Town soccer club.
I established Carrick-on-Shannon Physiotherapy & Sports Injury Clinic in August 2006 with the aim of providing an excellent level of service and care to the members of the community in Carrick-on-Shannon and the surrounding communities. I completed a MSc in Neuromusculoskeletal Physiotherapy in University College Dublin 2008-2010. My subject of investigation for my research thesis involved rehabilitation protocols following total hip replacement (THR) surgery.
Keeping up to date with current treatment techniques and latest research findings remains a priority for myself and my colleuges in the clinic. I firmly believe in performing a thorough initial assessment on a new patient presenting to the clinic. This assessment includes a detailed conversation to ascertain the severity and impact of symptoms on that patient followed by a comprehensive physical examination. A clinical picture and diagnosis can then be ascertained so that a management plan of treatment and rehabilitation can be put into place and commenced.
Mnaual therapy (hands-on) remains my greatest asset in both diagnosis and treatment. Additional tools that add to my expertise include numerous pilates courses undertaken through the APPI (Australian Physiotherapy & Pilates Institute) as listed below, acupuncture, orthopaedics & manual therapy, and sports courses.
I have a keen interest in sports, especially GAA and Carrick-on-Shannon Physiotherapy & Sports Injury Clinic provide the Chartered Physiotherapy services to Roscommon GAA Senior football panel. Please refer to the sports section of this website for further information.
