Attending Your Appointment

At your appointment one of our physiotherapists will assess and establish your specific injuries or symptoms to build an accurate diagnosis. We then offer a completely personalised treatment plan, specific to your needs and aim to get you returned to your usual self.  

What Can We Treat?

Our physiotherapists are experts in treating patients with, but not limited to, the following conditions:

  • Sprains, strains and tears
  • Knee and hip injury
  • ACL repair and other sporting injuries
  • Fractures and dislocations
  • Neck, back and shoulder pain
  • Core stability training
  • Soft tissue injuries (ligaments, tendons, nerves, connective tissue)
  • Pre/post op rehabilitation (e.g. Arthroscopy of knee, Rotator cuff repair, ACL recon, TKR)
  • Chronic and nerve pain
  • Postural problems

Once the symptoms start to resolve and function is returning, we offer advice on minimising the risk of recurrence of symptoms, e.g. advice on work postures, sporting postures and any biomechanical adjustments to maintain pain free function.

If the symptoms do not respond to appropriate physio/rehab and we feel there may be a need for further input, you will have access to a seamless referral pathway at Kingsbridge Private Hospital. This includes access to MRI, X-ray, CT, Ultrasound and over 300 of Northern Ireland’s best Consultants.

Sports Packages and Screenings

Offering bespoke sports screening packages and sports medicine expertise, you will have rapid access to treatments, diagnostics and rehabilitation services including our Minor Injuries Clinic.

Cardiac MRI

Cardiac MRI allows Cardiologists to see the heart in more detail than any other imaging formats available. This facilitates non-invasive, non-ionising investigation which can more accurately identify those individuals in need of valve replacement, coronary stenting or bypass operations.

Cardiac Screening 

A cardiac sports screening at Kingsbridge Physiotherapy and Sports Injury Clinic is available for young athletes aged between 16 and 35 years old and offers access to 12 lead ECG, Echocardiography, Exercise Stress Testing (EST treadmill), Cardiac CT, Consultations, Blood Tests and Cardiac MRI.

No matter which sport, or at whatever level you play, everyone is potentially at risk to abnormalities. Anyone below or above the age parameters can avail of a private consultation with one of our resident Consultants or avail of a Healthy Heart Assessment.

If you wish to book an appointment please complete our Pre-Participation Cardiac Sports Screening Questionnaire prior to your appointment were possible.

Patient Testimonials

"I was in your facility yesterday for a day procedure (operation on my left arm). I wanted to write and express how impressed I was with the facilities and more importantly the staff on the Ward.

Everyone was excellent, and I mean excellent, i don't normally write congratulatory e-mails so this is high praise in my view. The Senior nurse was excellent, as was the Theatre nurse and the anaesthetist. Even the assistants that helped with catering and other duties. All came together to form a great impression of the establishment." Jason Carpal Tunnel Surgery, Kingsbridge Patient
"Amazing 5-star hospital.  Have had other surgery here before on my back.
Yesterday's was a neck disc replacement operation.  I would highly recommend this hospital like a hotel manner. Thanks again guys." Mr Phillips, Kingsbridge Patient
"As hospitals go this one is pretty amazing! Had surgery with Mr Molloy at the end of October and have another one the end of this month. Mr Molloy is a gentleman who puts you at ease right away and ensured my last procedure went smoothly! From start to finish all the hospital staff go above and beyond to make your stay as comfortable and stress free as possible. The facilities are brilliant with the rooms spacious and modern to recover in. Keep up the good work!" Ms Roulston, Kingsbridge Patient
"Can’t praise Kingsbridge Private Hospital enough!! I had an operation a couple of weeks ago and I was so well looked after. My surgeon Mr Rashid was fantastic, and the nursing staff was also fabulous. I found they communicated very well to each other, so everyone knew when my meds were due, my allergies etc. They were so kind, so lovely, constantly checked to see how I was i.e. my temperature etc. The food was fabulous and the catering staff very helpful having had an operation were very happy to accommodate ... Thank you to all!" Ms Cheong, Kingsbridge Patient
"Currently just back from recovery on the ward. I have just had ACL reconstructive surgery on my left knee. What can I say? This place is brilliant. I arrived at 8.35am, taken to the ward at 8.45am (my admission time was 9am). Tended to by a lovely Nurse. Dr Roger Wilson spoke to me around 9.45am, in Theatre for 10am, recovery for 11.10am and now currently back on ward. These guys are awesome. From the consultant to anaesthetist to nurses to cater assistants. Absolutely brilliant. Thank you so much. I am so grateful to everyone at Kingsbridge for the service." Mr McNicholl, Kingsbridge Patient
