Physiotherapist & Advanced Clinical Practitioner Trainee


John Daly

John has gained extensive experience through working in multiple settings in the NHS as a Senior Physiotherapist, where he supervised Junior Physiotherapists and Physiotherapy students. He also has comprehensive experience working in private practice and sport including athletics, Gaelic football, football and rugby.

John treats using a variety of treatment techniques including hands-on treatment, individualised exercise prescription, acupuncture, dry needling, and running gait analysis to achieve the best possible outcome for his patients. 

As well as his passion for treating knee and shoulder injuries also, John specialises in running-related injuries and has presented to running clubs on how to reduce likelihood of injury, cadence and more. 

He is a keen runner himself and when training for a long-distance race such as a marathon, he’ll run over 100km per week during training, so he understands the demands running places on the body, strategies on how to continue to train with or around an injury, and what it’s like not to be able to run due to an injury. 

He enjoys skiing and is a fully qualified sailing instructor having sailed for many years in the West of Ireland where he grew up.
