Brendan Kennelly - Runner- Galway City Harriers - April 2015
"I have been a client of Darren’s for a few years and have always find his service to be absolutely top class. He has always paid careful attention to any injuries, major or minor, that I have had. In April 2015 I ran the Manchester Marathon. In the month before the race I had three appointments with Darren. I had a great run in Manchester and am convinced that much of the credit for it should go to Darren. Whether you are looking for preventive care before a race or treatment for a particular injury Darren is the sports physio guy to go to in Galway!"

"Not knowing the area i was quite nervous as to whether i would choose a good sports therapist
for my all important pre-race massage in Galway. I soon realised that i need not have worried. As soon as i met Darren i relaxed. He was extremly friendly and open, which is important when going to a sports therapist for the first time. He meticulously worked out the final drains of fatigue from my legs pior to my big race which was Ireland 70.3 in Galway. I felt like i got real value for money and a level of service that would normally be afforded to more regular customers rather than those just passing through as i was. Darren was also very helpful regarding local knowledge and as i was with my family and dog this was a real plus ! I would certainly recommend Darren to anyone and if i get to race in Galway again i will definitely go back".

The Corrective Exercise Programme designed by Darren through his Advanced Functional Rehabilitation knowledge worked great for me. Darren’s positive energy and dedication to proper methods of exercise has given me a new outlook on effective core work to promote my running to higher levels while keeping me injury free. Thanks Darren
COPE Galway have benefitted hugely from having Darren on board as our sports injury therapist. Darren treated a number of athletes after our triathlon in June and again after the Streets of Galway in August. His presence is a great addition to our sporting events and his easy, friendly manner combined with professionalism means our supporters go away smiling!

''It is always a pleasure to meet such positive people as Darren is. His positive attitude really helped me to get through the difficult times. The process of whole body consideration followed by movement testing helped a lot to get a right picture of what was going on with my injury. The program combined with massage treatment was effective to treat my chronic shoulder problem. What a difference in comparison to some ice and ultrasound I received in 'normal' physiotherapy which only helped in the short term''.

'As a result of the Corrective Exercise Programme designed by Darren through his Advanced Functional Rehabilitation knowledge, my reoccuring lower back pain (which I have tried many different treatments for over the years!) is not my first thought of the day, it has become a thing of the past'.
Antoine Mobian - Connacht Rugby Academy Fitness Coach
“Darren designed a postural and corrective plan for two sub- academy players. He carried out an in-depth assessments, compiled a functional and corrective program and followed the progress of the players. Darren was really flexible in his work and gave a lot of time to the players, he promotes overall functional control, stability and range of motion through his functional plan which is essential while working with young athletes.”
