Sport is an important part of life and occasionally injuries occur. Physiotherapy assessment and treatment usually accelerates the healing process and returns the participant to their activity as fast as possible and with their injury healed.

Adare Physiotherapy clinic is proud to provide physiotherapy services to  Ballingarry AFC  and Patrickswell GAA clubs.
