Lynsey has furthered her training in various manual therapy courses focusing on the spine such as the McKenzie method, dry needling, orthotic prescription and clinical pilates.

Lynsey was the Chief Physiotherapist for the Irish Ladies Women’s Tennis Open in 2005. In 2008 she opened Archview Physiotherapy Pain and Sports Injury Clinic in Dublin. Over the last few years the clinic has grown to a team of chartered physiotherapists, physical therapists, massage therapists, clinical Pilates instructors and personal trainers who treat patients with varying levels of sporting, musculoskeletal injuries and neurological complaints. Lynsey has a passion for dealing with complicated myofascial problems which can be associated with most musculoskeletal and neuromuscular injuries.

She has a very keen interest in treating headaches and migraines, back and neck pain, shoulder injuries, hip and knee pain, sporting injuries, repetitive strains, arthritic conditions, foot problems and neurological injuries e.g stroke.
