Richard Shortall MISCP

A winner of Trinity College’s prestigious Foundation Scholarship, Richard placed first in his graduating class in 1993 and stayed on at Trinity to get his master’s degree in Sports Medicine and Exercise Science. He has extensive clinical experience in a variety of physiotherapy sub-specialties including sports injuries, chronic pain, spinal rehabilitation, hospital inpatient care, post-surgical rehabilitation, chronic pain, orthopaedics and rheumatology.

Since graduation, he has completed numerous post-graduate courses in Ireland, Britain, Australia and the US. Richard now focuses on neuro-musculoskeletal physiotherapy which means he treats a wide variety of conditions ranging from the usual ‘sprains, strains, aches and pains’, to spinal problems such as back, thoracic and neck pain, ‘degenerative disc disease’, nerve conditions like sciatica and issues like headache, myofascial trigger points, persistent and undiagnosed pain and complex regional pain syndromes.

His particular expertise is in manual therapy, dry needling and myofascial release procedures for muscle pain, and therapeutic exercises aimed at restoring the natural stability and alignment of the body.
