Once qualified she moved home to start a private practice in the Clifden Medical Practice. She works alongside three general practitioners and a practice nurse who offer vital support where needed for patients to get the best possible recovery. Since 2011 Sarah has developed a successful practice in musculoskeletal care, sports injury rehabilitation and post surgical physiotherapy.
She has recently completed a fully accredited training course in Women’s Health. Sarah is qualified to assess and treat urinary incontinence; pre and post natal pain; and prolapse care.
In addition to the clinic Sarah has worked with the local rugby team in the past for a number of years and from time to time with local GAA teams. She has experience with injuries sustained by golfing; rowing; cycling; running; gym and training and dancing. In the clinic she can offer state of the art assessment and diagnosis of acute and chronic conditions, and if needed a quick referral path to specialist consultants.
Sarah is also working in the area of care of the elderly, in four local nursing homes. She has extensive experience in mobility; balance; and strength training with this population. She speaks excellent Irish and works extensively in the Gaeltacht area of Connemara. There is also the option to have a home visit arranged for an elderly person who is unable to attend the clinic.
Sarah is fully trained to provide medical grade rehabilitation in the clinic for cardiac and respiratory conditions. People who have a heart condition; after surgery; or those who have an illness relating to breathing and the lungs.
Sarah hopes to continue to develop her practice over the coming years to provide the people of Connemara and visitors with the best possible care. She is continually looking for new treatments and learning new skills to offer the public.
