Mike Carswell was brought over to Ireland from South Africa in August 1990 to play rugby. He played professionally for a number of years until a severe injury finished his sporting career.

Through his subsequent work as a personal trainer and his own experience of unsatisfactory treatments Mike became interested in the most effective and efficient ways to treat sport injuries. Combining ‘a hands’ on approach to treating injuries with a comprehensive rehabilitation programme Mike brought about a quicker turn around for patients to return fully fit back to their sport.

Mike was inspired when he met the Australian Brisbane Bronco rugby league Physio and he witnesses the results he achieved using just his hands (“these are my tools he informed me!”). This encouraged Mike to pursue Physical Therapy.


Among his academic qualifications includes the following:

  • Diploma in Physical Therapy from the Institute of physical Therapy & Applied Science
  • Diploma in Sports Therapy (I.T.E.C.)
  • Diploma in Anatomy, Physiology & Body Massage. (1995). I.T.E.C
  • Degree in Bachelors in Human Movement Science from the University of Port Elizabeth now renamed the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University, Port Elizabeth, South Africa.
  • T.P.I. Certified Golf Instructor

Mike spends time attending courses on a regular basis to make sure his patients receive the latest and best treatment options and feedback available.
