Deborah O’Mahony

BSc. (Hons) Sports & Exercise Rehabilitation, MSc. Physiotherapy, MISCP


Deborah, our resident Physiotherapist & Sports Rehabilitator, is a native of Mitchelstown, Co. Cork. Deborah qualified in 2009 with a BSc Honours degree in Sports & Exercise Rehabilitation having previously studied Physiology & Health Science. As part of this degree, Deborah undertook four months of work experience in Philadelphia, where she worked with a variety of elite university athletes and as a result has gained extensive experience in diagnosing, treating and managing a wide range of complaints.

Upon her return from the US, Deborah continued to work with a variety of GAA teams as well as a number of non-sporting patients in her area.

Before coming to work in Cork she completed a two years Masters Degree in Physiotherapy and is now a registered member of The Irish Society of Chartered Physiotherapists.

The Masters enabled Deborah to gain a wider understanding of the complaints within the general population ranging from children to the elderly.

Deborah herself has a keen interest in sports, playing both ladies football and camogie with her local club. In the last number of years, Deborah has taken to running and has now completed a number of half marathons as well as completing her first full marathon in May 2014. She also had the fortune of competing internationally in gymnastics as a member of the Irish Youth Gymnastics team. Deborah has strong beliefs in patient education and uses a mixture of hands-on and self- management approaches to care. She has a passion for rehabilitation and is very pro-active in her approach to injury rehabilitation and prevention.

She uses a combination of manual techniques, pilates, neural mobilisation, deep tissue massage and trigger point therapy to treat a wide variety of complaints.

Deborah is also certified in kinesiotaping for acute swelling and injury management and sports specific enhancement. The kinesiotaping method is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while allowing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion.

Deborah has also trained with the APPI for physio pilates which is used widely here at the clinic to rehabilitate young and old following back injury. Deborah also runs classes from the clinic on a number of days.
