Liam Heavin

Founder ~ Clinical Director

MSc (Sports Medicine), BPhysio, MISCP

Liam is the founder of Dublin Back Clinic, and is one of Ireland's most experienced back and neck rehabilitation specialists. He holds a Masters Degree in Sports Medicine from Trinity College Dublin, as well as his undergraduate Physiotherapy Degree from Satakunnan University in Finland. He continues to practice 2 days per week at our original clinic at Ashleaf in Dublin 12. The remainder of the time he is based in University College Dublin. Liam is the Director of Physiotherapy & Sports Medicine at DBC Belfield in the UCD Institute for Sport & Health.

Annually, he sees over 200 cases of back and neck pain; the majority of whom are long terms sufferers with the condition. Most patients are seen following referral from their Consultant (Spinal Orthopaedic / Neurosurgeon / Rheumatologist), and rehabilitation programs form part of a wider management of their back or neck pain which often includes pain management injections. He also specialises in neck injuries and rehabilitation in elite and professional rugby.
