"Amazing and caring physiotherapist. Niamh provides specialist assessment and treatment to the highest standard. Outcomes are superb"
"Very professional, explains the exercises very clearly and shows you the exercises very well. Thank you Niamh"
"My son, now nearly 20 years old, has been a patient of Niamh McGowan and also of the Scoliosis Academy since its inception. My son was diagnosed with idiopathic scoliosis at age 16 which deteriorated rapidly during growth spurts in the few years following and we made the decision, in consultation with our medical team, to proceed with spinal fusion surgery in 2020. Niamh McGowan has provided a vital and exceptional level of treatment, support, guidance and encouragement for my son as he navigated his journey preparing for surgery and in his recovery, both initial and beyond. Having this kind of expertise and support both before and after is crucial to the success of such a significant surgery. I would highly recommend Niamh McGowan and all the the Scoliosis Academy team.
