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
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".

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''.

have suffered with Knee Pain on and off for years, once I began to
increase the distance of my running it became a real problem for me.
Darren gave me a diagnosis straight away and through regular treatments

at the end of this year'
