Attending for an appointment?
What's changed???
UPDATED Level 5 Restrictions

As Chartered Physiotherapists we are regulated and governed by the ISCP (Irish Society of Chartered Physiotherapists), the HSE/Department of Health.

Physiotherapy as a branch of medicine or a medical / allied health service, our profession falls within the scope of essential public health services under the health & Social Care Professionals Act 2005.

Please view the act here: (http://www.irishstatutebook.ie/eli/2005/act/27/section/4/enacted/en/html#sec4

If you are attending for an appointment, you may encounter increased An Garda Siochana road checks. If you are stopped please have your appointment confirmation email ready to show the Garda. This will ensure you are able to travel to your appointment.

In the interest of infection control, we have made changes to how we work and the types of treatments we can perform and techniques we use.

As per current advice, should you be displaying any symptoms, however minor (cough, temperature, loss of smell or taste) We would ask you to please not attend for physiotherapy treatments and contact your GP or the HSE for immediate Covid19 testing. The more testing we do, the better in helping us to contain this virus and thus protect our loved ones and those working throughout our healthcare system.

If you are symptom free and have not been in contact with anyone displaying symptoms in the past 2 weeks, please feel free to attend for an appointment.

Physiotherapy Treatments not currently available

Respiratory Physiotherapy- due to the nature of respiratory physiotherapy there is increased risk of aerosol droplets in the air and risk of cross infection so this is no longer a treatment option until further notice.

Manipulations and other Treatments

As a specialist in spinal and peripheral joint manipulations, I have adapted certain techniques in order to reduce the forced sudden expiration that can occur during these techniques. This will be assessed on an individual basis.

Attending the clinic

Should you wear a surgical face mask or respirator?

As per recent government guidelines surrounding the use of face coverings we would ask that all attending our clinic to please wear a face mask or covering.

If you do not have one then we can supply you with one in the clinic as we have them in stock for just €2 each.

All our therapists will be wearing a surgical face mask for all treatments

Surface and cross infection

While we have always had a policy of fully disinfecting our treatment tables between patients, we are currently allocating extra time in between each appointment to ensure complete disinfection of all surfaces and equipment used.

In that regard, we have stopped the use of pillows and towels in our clinic. When attending, please bear in mind that during examinations and treatments you may need to lie on your back, feel free to bring your jacket/jumper to be used as a pillow. This can also be used for partial cover during certain assessments or treatments where we require you to remove items of clothing such as your top or trousers etc. Please bear this in mind when attending.

When you arrive at the clinic please use the hand sanitiser provided at the front desk.

As mentioned, we are allocating more time between appointments to allow for cleaning, this is also to aid in social distancing requirements. Please bear in mind that when you enter our clinic, should there be another patient or customer, remember to maintain at least 2 meters from each other. Alternatively please feel free to wait until that person has left the clinic before entering. In order for our new procedures to be fully effective we would kindly ask that you arrive on your treatment time or shortly before.

Any questions please do not hesitate to email us at: physiologic.ie@gmail.com

We look forward to seeing you in the near future.

Stay healthy, stay safe.

Physiologic are Chartered Physiotherapy, Sports Injury & Pain Clinic based in Lucan Co. Dublin .

We offer a full range of Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation Services using modern treatments and technologies in order to provide prompt diagnosis and treatment for your Injuries and Conditions.

Our aim is to provide the best possible care for our patients enabling you to return to pre injury levels of activity in the shortest possible timeframes. Our Physiotherapists are all practicing members of the Irish Society of Chartered Physiotherapists (MISCP). The cost of your treatments are tax deductible and covered by all major health insurers.


Physiologic was set up by Michael Sheridan (MISCP) Chartered Physiotherapist in 2010. Michael had the intention of opening a clinic whereby the patient comes first. He has a very hand on approach to Physiotherapy and believes no patient should be hooked up to a machine, left there for 30 minutes just to be told to come back again in a few days time. This has never and will never happen at any of his clinics. He believes patient education is paramount to their recovery and actively involves his patients in their own recovery ensuring they have a full understanding of their underlying pathology, why he believes a particular treatment is appropriate and advice on how to avoid reoccurring injuries.

Physiologic has now grown to two clinics based in Smithfield and Lucan. Both clinics are furnished with a fully equipped gym in order to obtain the maximum level of patient recovery to pre injury levels of activity. 

Both of the Physiologic Physiotherapy Clinics operate within a Multidisciplinary Setting so that we can offer unparalleled service provision including Medical & Consultancy Services, rapid access to Diagnostics (MRI, X-Ray,DEXA,Ultrasound) with our partners in Charter Medical and Alliance Medical.  Because of this we have a very fast turn around for Diagnostic and Consultant Referrals to maximize treatment times and outcome measures. In a nutshell, if we can’t help you, one of our colleagues can!

I was suffering from chronic lower back pain for months. I attended Michael at physiologic in smithfield and found him very helpful and friendly. I got an MRI within one week and he explained my condition in plain english. Michael showed me how to manage my back pain at home and it is now a distant memory. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

I was treated by Niamh at physiologic in Lucan after my ACL reconstruction. I found Niamh very helpful and knowledgeable. I was also surprised to see the full Gym setup in the clinic so I could do my rehab in the clinic , it really helped speed up my recovery.

I attended Michael from physiologic at his Maynooth clinic for ongoing tension headaches. pain killers just didnt work anymore. Michael treated me with some Dry-Needling  and after 3 treatments my headaches were gone. He also showed me some exercises to do to prevent them coming back. Fantastic service, great staff.
