KAREN DOYLE – Physical Therapist, Pilates Instructor
Karen Doyle is a fully registered member of the the Physiotherapist Registration Board (Reg. no. PT026272) and Irish Association of Physical Therapists (IAPT). I graduated from Physical Therapy training gaining a Distinction in a Bachelor of Applied Science.
In addition to Physical Therapy, I also studied science at University College Dublin and holds a BSc (Hons) Biochemistry. I love to keep up to date on research and new treatment and rehab techniques for common complaints I see in the clinic. I do this by attending formal training, seminars and reading research papers. I try to present this information in a user friendly way in the blogs I write for this website.
I had the privilege of working the Irish National Cycling teams from 2008-2012 accompanying them to training camps and World Cup competitions. I worked with the road racing squad, but spent most of my time working the the Track Team which a really great and enjoyable experience. My interest in physical therapy comes from my love of sports. I love the outdoors and rock climb, run and hill walk. Many of my clients come from sporting backgrounds. In my treatments I combine manual treatment and dry needling, and assess the the whole kinetic chain to identify areas of imbalance which may be the cause of injury.
I attended Karen weekly in the run up to my last marathon and Karen was very effective in ensuring my body was able to recover quickly from my long runs. I have no hesitation recommending the Maple Clinic – Matt
“I just wanted to let you know that I completed my ‘big’ cycle, Le Marmotte last week-end…without any aches or pains and I actually enjoyed the (long!) day. Thank you; it made a big difference.” – Deirdre
