Ann Marie Lucey

Qualifications: B.Sc. Physio MISCP
Post Graduate Certificate Orthopaedic Manual Therapy.
Post Graduate Certificate in Sports Physiotherapy.

Special Interests: Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy. Chronic Pain Management.

I graduated from University College Dublin in 2005 with a B. Sc Physiotherapy (Hons) degree. Once I completed my degree I returned to Cork and worked as a Junior Physiotherapist at the Bons Secours hospital Cork for two years enjoying rotations through respiratory, neurology, the ICU, orthopaedics and outpatients. I truly enjoyed working in musculoskeletal care. I decided to up sticks and set my sites on New Zealand and Australia, where sport and physiotherapy are central to people’s health and well-being. I worked in several practices in the few years I spent between the two countries. The experience abroad was extremely rewarding and enriching. I worked alongside titled Musculoskeletal Physiotherapists, who provided me mentorship and challenged my thinking. I worked in a clinic which ran controlled trials from the local University of Queensland, which was fascinating to measure the effectiveness and impact of Physiotherapy on various conditions. I returned to Cork with this experience and have enjoyed managing Blackpool Physiotherapy Clinic since 2013. I have completed post graduate Certificates in Sports Physiotherapy (University of Bath) and Orthopaedic Manual Therapy (Perth, Australia). I am a practicing member of the Irish Society of Chartered Physiotherapists and I am committed to continuing my professional development.

Special Interests: Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s

With a particular interest in musculoskeletal and sports injuries, I love working with people of all levels of fitness. I have worked closely with a wide variety of patients ranging from elite athletes through my work with Cork GAA and Cork City FC to patients suffering with both acute and chronic pain such a low back pain. Having carried out a wide variety of clinical placements ranging from rheumatology to neurology patients, I have developed a wide variety of treatment techniques for all manner of physiotherapy problems. Through continuous professional development, I strive to keep up to date with the latest research in the progressive area that is Physiotherapy.

In addition, I am a fully trained STOTT Pilates instructor in both mat and reformer, having also completed courses in both pre and post-natal Pilates. I believe that clinical Pilates can be of huge benefit to people of all activity levels.

Away from the clinic, I am a keen runner having completed two marathons and enjoy weekly reformer pilates classes which I believe has greatly complimented my running.
