Dry Needling

At APC Physio & Sports Clinic, our physiotherapists are expertly trained in the art of this beneficial treatment for tight, painful, or cramping muscles. This healing method is also effective in the reduction of pain from physical and mental stress, headaches and migraines, as well as tendon, lower back, neck and shoulder complaints etc 

We decided to introduce dry needling to both our physiotherapy Cork & Fermoy list of services because we feel it is time to move away from the overuse of pain medication. Let dry needling return your body to its normal strength and range of motion. Yes, you can live a life free of pain.

Pilates

We highly recommend Pilates classes for anyone who requires physiotherapy treatment. Why is this? Firstly, Pilates is for everyone. Furthermore, it is particularly recommended for clients who are experiencing difficulties with movement, due to injuries or pain. Classes are designed for athletes or amateurs with a high level of fitness, or for clients who are still working to develop their fitness level.

We also offer a dedicated post-partum class for Moms who are 4-6 weeks after birth. Classes are kept at an optimal number so you get the attention to detail you require to make those improvements, be they core strength, postural awareness, flexibility or balance.   ‘Move well, Fell well, Be well’   Sign up now

Rehabilitation

Rehabilitation is not what it used to be. APC Physio & Sports Clinic is addressing a new wave of rehabilitation for physiotherapy in Cork. When you take our Functional Rehabilitation Circuits classes, you’ll see what we mean. We provide classes for both prehab and rehab.

Prehab prepares the body and mind for surgery. By engaging in a 6 to 10 week block of specific exercises together you and your physio will prepare the muscles, improve fitness levels and educate you so you are in the best possible place, physically and mentally so you get the most from it. Cardiovascular fitness is the most important thing for successful outcomes in surgery. Understanding your exercise regime beforehand means muscle memory will kick in quicker after the surgery and reduce recovery times on the other side.

Rehab helps you teach your muscles to cooperate with the surgical area, and trains your body to work with your new and improved condition. You’ll be provided with a personalised programme and lots of support from our Physios.

Active Retirement

When we talk about the golden years, we have visions of taking it easy, and complaining about aches and pains. There is no need to slow down or have fear of falling! Retiring can mean that you’ve finally earned the time to become active.

This is why APC Physio & Sports Clinic offers Active Retirement Classes as a unique addition to our typical physio in Cork and Fermoy services. Redo your garden, start walking, and join our classes. Exercise keeps the blood moving – an excellent way to prevent strokes. Exercise will help with circulation, maintain muscle mass, bone density, reduce cancer risk by 25% , reduce dementia / neurological conditions risk. The fitter you are the longer you live AND the better your quality of life.

Working out in a modified program designed for retirees, builds strength, increases range of motion, and improves balance. You’ll reduce your chances of taking a fall. Our classes are informative, empowering you with knowledge so you can take that step in a better direction and best of all they are Fun.
