I went to Richard with a lower back issue and in just a few short months feel like a new man. He systematically broke down my issues and set me exercises to build myself back up week by week. Always reassuring and positive Richard was a rock during my rehabilitation. I cannot recommend him enough
Went to Richard towards the start of the year and straight away he figured out what was wrong with me and how to correct it. Over the last several months he gave me different exercises to improve my situation and I have made great improvement's and now have a road map to follow. I highly recommend his services.
I have had two separate treatments with Richard, shoulder impingement and tennis/golf elbow. On both occasions Richard resolved my issues very quickly and very effectively.At each session he worked physically on the issue and gave me exercises to perform at home.Richard also spent a lot of time figuring out the cause of the issues and helped me understand what was causing them and how I could make some simple changes to make sure that I wouldn't have the same problems again.I have been to many Physiotherapists before and have had mixed results but I have to say that I am very impressed with the service and outcomes with Harbour Clinic and I would highly recommend Richard.
Richard had been recommended to me by another physician and was the only physiotherapist in Dublin who could help me deal with chronic pain in my calves, a specific issue I had been dealing with for years and which could sometimes prevent me from walking for several months. From the very first session, I knew he was the person I had been looking for; very knowledgeable, trustworthy and diligent in his helpful approach. All techniques Richard used showed immediate progress in my symptoms and made me ultimately become again the movement and sports-loving person I am. I will be forever grateful.
As an avid runner I pick up the odd knock and strains. Over the last few years I have gone to see Richard at the Harbour Clinic. From the initial assessment Richard's professionalism and care is second to none. Richard's vast knowledge in his field has allowed me to continue running pain free. For anyone looking for a Physiotherapist that takes the time to understand their clients and follow-up with treatments I cannot recommend Richard highly enough.

Just to let you know that I'm back from two days hiking (7/8 hours and 25k each) and climbing the Langdale Pikes and Skaffell Pike (to within 100m of its summit and it is the highest point in England apparently) with no IT band trouble at all. Thanks so much for setting me right you've been just great.

'I attended the Harbour Clinic because of ongoing pain caused by a frozen shoulder. I also was suffering from regular headaches which I felt were perhaps in some way connected to the shoulder pain. I have been having these symptoms the last three years and had tried every therapy going. After the first session with Richard the pain in my shoulder had eased considerably and the headaches lifted completely. After the fourth session, all pain was gone. Harbour Clinic has a friendly and relaxed atmosphere and I cannot recommend it highly enough'.

‘ I recently return from a short business trip to Singapore and had the great idea to get rid of jet lag through exercise so off I went to the Forty Foot for a 1k swim and in the process di some slight damage to my shoulder/back. Unperturbed I took some pain killers and hurried off to the tennis Club to pay a two-hour tennis match.
Well as one should expect the following morning was, to say the least a wake-up call and a classic example of a 50-year-old thinking he is still 25. Simple there was no mobility from my right shoulder down through the right side of my lower back and it was clear that I had torn/damaged several muscle groups to the point that I could not do the most basic of tasks.
I needed immediate assistance and through a work colleague called the Premier Physical Therapy Clinic. I had the good fortune to connect with Richard and he immediately found/cleared space in his diary to see me.
My experience with Richard was first class in that he identified the issues straight away, was at all times extremely responsive and while the treatment took a number of at times painful sessions I at all times felt very comfortable that I was in good hands and being treated by someone who was skillful, safe and understood exactly what he was doing.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Richard and Harbour Clinic and while I hope not to have too many reasons to attend in the future should the need arise Richard will be the first call I make.’
