What we do
Recalibrate is a private clinic run by Ciara Mulrooney, a Certified Athletic Rehabilitation Therapist.
A passion of sport and exercise from a young age has led me to this profession, it sparked an interest in how and why the body moves and reacts in certain ways. This and knowing first-hand the pain and disappointment when injured means I understand people’s needs, worries and expectations. I know injuries can happen anywhere at any time!
At Recalibrate I provide a service which enables individuals to receive knowledgeable and effective treatment. My aim is to allow patients to improve their active daily living by enhancing their movement and decreasing their pain.
I achieve this by using these simple steps:
- Listen to your unique story.
- Assess what may be causing the issue.
- Educate you on your pain and functional movement.
- Individualise your treatment to your specific needs and goals.
- Support you as an individual to remain pain free into the future.
Ciara graduated with a BSc. Hons degree from DCU, a degree which encompasses all the elements surrounding injury treatment and rehabilitation.
At Recalibrate I can assess your injury whether it’s recent or long term. I will devise a plan to allow you to remain pain free into the future. To do this I will treat the injury using a combination of hands on techniques and specific rehabilitation exercises allowing you to move well and recover effectively.
Can relieve muscular tension, improve recovery and alleviate soreness. I will adapt the session to suit your specific needs, whether the massage is pre event, post event or in between training sessions. It will allow the body to reset the muscles and optimize its movement.
SPORTS SPECIFIC TRAINING
Is there an area you need to improve in your sport? With knowledge across various sports and exercises I can help you reach your full potential by tailoring programmes to suit your specific needs. Are you getting your maximum power when you swing a hockey stick? Is how you follow through kicking a ball the best technique for you?
This involves inserting sterile acupuncture needles into areas of muscles known as trigger points. These are areas of tension which cause pain and tension within the body. Dry needling will treat these problem areas breaking down the pain cycle. This differs from acupuncture which follows Traditional Chinese Medicine, dry needling follows western medicine research.
Are you or your club members suffering too many injuries over the season? With Recalibrates help you can reduce the number of injuries you may potentially sustain. By assessing how you move and making some tweaks I can allow you to move efficiently and effectively, giving you more time to participate throughout the year.

How does an athletic therapist differ from a physiotherapist?
Physiotherapy is a broad health care profession that deals with a number of diverse medical fields. Athletic Therapy specialises in musculoskeletal injuries related to physical activity. Such specialisation allows therapists to examine this area in much greater detail. Athletic therapists have 1000s of hours of clinical and pitchside experience upon graduation. This includes working in private practice and with elite athletes, showing the ability to gain in depth knowledge of the area allowing athletic therapists to maintain a high standard of knowledge in treating musculoskeletal injuries.
Do I need to play a sport to attend?
No, Recalibrate caters for all individuals, injuries can happen at any time anywhere.
