Anna Healy graduated from the University of Limerick in 2020 with a first class honours BSc. in Physiotherapy. Since graduating, Anna has worked with people of all ages and activity level. She is currently working in a paediatric disability service, providing physiotherapy care to children with complex needs. She has also worked in the nursing home setting, including providing rehabilitation care to individuals after amputation. Anna has experience in the private practice setting, working with people with sports and musculoskeletal injuries.
Anna’s clinical placements exposed her to the acute hospital setting, physiotherapy within the Irish Defence Forces, paediatric disability services and telehealth care during the COVID-19 pandemic. Anna also spent some time volunteering as poolside physiotherapist for the development and performance squads in Swim Ireland’s national centre in Limerick. She has provided match day physiotherapy for several teams around Laois.
Anna has a keen interest in sports and musculoskeletal injuries, and in paediatric physiotherapy. She aims to combine high-quality evidence and holistic patient care, treating the person rather than the condition or injury.
