Sinead graduated from Ulster University in July 2014 with a first class honours in Physiotherapy. She started her working life in the NHS soon after graduating, completing rotations in the Royal Hospital of Sick Children and in the Royal Victoria Hospital Outpatients Department, where she still currently works.
Sinead is extremely keen to go ‘the extra mile’ to maintain and build upon her experience within the area of musculoskeletal and sports injuries.
As well as full-time NHS, Sinead is working with various sports teams: The Eglish Camogie team, providing training and match day physiotherapy cover, and Armagh GAA Senior Team as part of their Intern program. Working alongside Armagh’s Head Physiotherapist and Strength & Conditioning coach, Sinead assists with pre-season screening, rehabilitation from injury and improving players’ mobility.
Sinead’s interest in the profession of Physiotherapy stemmed mainly from her own sporting career. Growing up she was always very sporty, with interests in Tennis, Golf, Netball, Football and a brief and unsuccessful attempt at the Javelin (it’s harder than it looks). However, her main sport is Badminton!
Sinead’s biggest achievement was representing the Northern Ireland Team in two consecutive Commonwealths Games, most recently in Glasgow 2014. In addition, Sinead is also five times and current Irish Senior Ladies Doubles Champion. Sinead draws on the many experiences and values that she has gained throughout her sporting career and uses them to shape her as a Physiotherapist.
Keeping within her passion, Sinead is working with Ulster Badminton at their high performance training camps. Her role involves player screening, rehabilitation and ultimately improving player performance.
Sinead is extremely proud to be a member of North Down Physio and has a great future in the Clinic.
