Hello my name Paul MacDonald and I am the owner of Cork Sports Injury Clinic in Cork city. I am a fully insured and qualified member of the Association of Neuromuscular Physical Therapists (ANMPT). I also have qualifications in deep tissue, sports massage, dry needling, ultrasound and studied spinal manipulation under Michael Monaghan (Osteopath).
I played senior rugby with Highfield Rugby Club for many years. During this time I had many injuries and by working with physios, osteopaths and chiropractors I developed a deep interest in sport injury rehabilitation. After my time on the pitch I became a coach. This included all ages from U16 to the senior team and coaching has given me great insights into rehabilitation. Being a Physical Therapist also allows me to work with individuals from Triathlon, Athletics and GAA. I perform Therapy/Massage duties at events such as triathlons and athletic events. Another duty is pre-match strapping and injury treatment on pitch during matches and post game treatments.
My studies include the National Training Centre (NTC) Cork, an academic partner of the University of Chester, as well as studying under the directorship of Mr John Sharkey BSc, NMT, MSc., an anatomist and exercise physiologist. John is a member of the Olympic Council of Ireland’s medical and science team.
The treatments are also for people who are just looking to de-stress or are out of balance. If you are suffering from chronic pain and want help to relieve the symptoms of back pain, neck pain or any injury then I can help with a combination of Deep Tissue Massage, Dry needling, spinal adjustment and cupping. These treatments can be done all together or as required.

When you come to physiotherapy for the first session, we do a comprehensive assessment to determine the cause of your problem and begin a ‘hands on’ treatment regime to address the underlying cause. Problems often begin gradually and to prevent them from recurring we need to fully understand your body and the stresses and strains that you go through.
Most sessions you have will be varied, as the effect of each treatment is continually assessed. We explore the techniques and therapies which work best for you as we have found that people often improve faster when we use a variety of techniques and in some cases a range of services.
