Cailean Dunlea (MISCP)
Cailean (Cal) Dunlea obtained his BSc. (Hons) Physiotherapy Degree from Trinity College Dublin in 2016. Throughout his time in Trinity College, he worked in the core areas of physiotherapy including musculoskeletal outpatients, amputee gait rehabilitation and neurological paediatrics. Since graduating, Cal completed an internship in the Sports Surgery Clinic in Santry, Dublin. Here he gained invaluable experience and exposure to a wide variety of musculoskeletal conditions and sports injuries including ACL injuries, athletic hip and groin pain, rotator cuff tendinopathies and mechanical lower back pain. Cal has also worked with various teams, most notably the Cork Schoolboys 2017 Kennedy Cup team and the Limerick Underage Hurling Academy throughout the 2016 season.
Cal uses a combination of exercise and manual therapy, coupled with patient education, in order to treat the individual. Each individual is different and Cal believes when planning a treatment, the individual must be at the centre of the plan and not the presenting problem. His areas of interest include sports injuries such as hamstring injuries, anterior knee pain, achilles tendon injuries and general strength and conditioning. Cal also has an interest in the management of osteoarthritis. Outside of work, Cal enjoys a variety of sports including football, hurling, cycling and running. Cal also has a passion for martial arts and has a second degree blackbelt in Tae Kwon Do and has competed internationally. Cal works from both our Blanchardstown and Castleknock clinics in Dublin.
