Aileen O'Brien

MSc (Sports & Exercise Medicine), BSc (Physiotherapy), MISCP, MCSP

Aileen graduated from University of Limerick in 2009 with a BSc (Physiotherapy). She had a keen interest in Sports and Exercise Medicine, which led her to Queen Mary University in London, to study for her Masters in this field, graduating with a First Class Honours with Distinction in 2014.

Following this, Aileen undertook a role at Pure Sports Medicine in London, renowned for the management of a large and varied caseload of clients from the elite athlete, recreational amateur and sedentary client. This involved a thorough and detailed assessment of the individual as well as an active approach to the management of their conditions. During this time, she was involved in the supervision of Masters students from the University of London. She also participated heavily in teaching and learning opportunities for peers, colleagues as well as other health professionals such as GP’s and Consultants.

Prior to this Aileen spent time in Singapore and Kerry. During this time she worked in both a hospital and private practice setting. In Kerry she worked with a number of club Gaelic football teams and the Kerry Junior football team. It was in Singapore that she undertook the Stott Pilates instructor course and she developed an interest in the role of Pilates for rehabilitation and for exercise. She has clinical expertise in all aspects of rehabilitation with a particular interest in post surgical rehabilitation of upper and lower limb issues, tendinopathies and low back pain.

One of Aileen’s primary goals is to practise and manage each individual based on best practice as evidenced by research. As a result, she partakes in numerous opportunities to continue to educate herself further so she can provide the optimal treatment for her clients. She attends many conferences and training days annually to ensure that she is as current as possible with her approach to management of her clients.
