Andrew Cullinane (MISCP)
Andrew Cullinane obtained his honours degree in Physiotherapy from University College Dublin in 2015. Upon graduating, he moved to Gloucestershire in England, where he worked in a private practice setting for almost two years. During his time in England, Andrew gained invaluable experience treating a wide array of Musculoskeletal Disorders. His caseload ranged from treating acute sporting injuries to post operative rehab and most commonly low back pain. The clinic Andrew worked in was the UK Branch for The McKenzie Institute, and while working there he underwent three CPD courses in MDT (Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy), Lumbar spine, Cervical Spine (and Thoracic) and Advanced Lumbar Spine and Lower Extremity. These courses have helped deepen his knowledge of spinal pathologies and their management in a private practice environment.
Andrew’s goal as a physiotherapist is to help people feel and move better, through patient centred and goal orientated treatment programmes. He uses a mixture of both hands on manual techniques and exercise prescription during his treatment sessions. Andrew is a strong believer in the importance of a building a rapport with all patients, resulting in a much more rewarding experience of physiotherapy – both physically and mentally. Away from work, Andrew is a keen sports enthusiast. He plays hurling locally for Kilmacud Crokes and on top of that enjoys resistance training in the gym and playing the odd round of golf (although this can test his patience). If he’s not playing sport, the next best thing is attending sports events and he tries to cram in as many matches and events as he can. When he’s not attending, he’s more than likely watching at home on the TV (sometimes with multiple screens on the go). Andrew works from both our Carrickmines and Rathfarnham clinics in Dublin.
