Smart physiotherapy is a new modern physiotherapy practice for the Belfast region. Smart physiotherapy works on the principal of evidence based practice which means it uses up to date research based practice to provide the best quality care to its patients.
Smart physiotherapy strongly believes that their physiotherapy practice is all about the Patient. This means that your problems and the goals you want to achieve is of paramount importance to us. We want to give you the best available service as quickly as we can and at times that suit you.
Maura is the clinical director and principal physiotherapist of Smart Physiotherapy. She has been a physiotherapist for over 14 years working initially in the NHS and then becoming a Musculoskeletal clinical specialist physiotherapist. She then spent a number of years working in a sports injury clinic and with various sports teams. Maura obtained a Masters (MSc) in 2018 to become a specialist in manual therapy. Hands on therapy therefore plays an integral part of everyday practice in the clinic.
How We Work
The approach by smart physiotherapy is to combine a detailed history and assessment to obtain a diagnosis. An extensive knowledge of anatomy, physiology and biomechanics enables us to diagnose and treat not only your symptoms, but also the underlying causes of your problem. As a result, we can improve the speed and effectiveness of your recovery as well as helping prevent future re-occurrences.
The approach by smart physiotherapy is to combine assessment and diagnosis with hands-on treatment, using a combination of soft tissue massage, mobilisation, manipulation and exercise. The focus is to address the underlying cause of the injury or dysfunction, rather than simply treating the symptoms.
All rehabilitation programmes are designed to fit your needs. We use a variety of exercise and rehabilitation techniques including Core Stability (pilates), Strengthening, Stretching, Postural correction (yoga techniques), Foam rolling, Gym-based exercises, Sport specific rehabilitation.
“ Smart physiotherapy is different to other practices, in that we combine assessment and diagnosis with hands-on treatment. And we focus on addressing the underlying cause of the injury or dysfunction, rather than simply treating the symptoms”.
One the best physiotherapists I’ve encountered. Gifted at her job , knows exactly the area to go to for immediate relief. Huge knowledge and very accommodating. Highly recommend Maura. A little lady with enormous strength.
Maura is fantastic! I visit regularly and each time she works wonders. Couldn’t recommend highly enough
Thoroughly recommend Maura, worked wonders on my back.
Here here!! Highly recommended 👏👏👏
No other physio has come close to giving me ease, beware though #shessmallbutmighty
Maura is the best physio I have attended. I play hockey and weight train/powerlift and I was having problems with my neck and shoulders and the treatment I received from Maura was second to none and I couldn’t believe the difference in my flexibility and movement even my PT was impressed with the improvements.. I would recommend anyone to go to Maura if you need physio!
Maura is a fantastic physio, she is excellent with acute injuries and also more chronic problems, would absolutely recommend her.
Look no further if you want to be treated by a clinician that is highly skilled with extensive experience in musculoskeletal injuries.
I couldn’t recommend Maura highly enough – I have been attending Smart Physio for over a year now, and with Maura’s help, boundless knowledge and skill, I have improved posture, I can now move easier, but more importantly breathe properly.
I am now attending a PT twice a week, and without the help and advice of Maura I would not be able to do this.
Maura is an amazing Physio. I would 100% recommend her to anyone. I had serious pain and muscle tightness in my chest, back and arms, which was restricting my training. Maura could see the source of my problem and had me sorted with full movement after a few sessions. She is very professional and makes you feel at ease. She has a great sense of humour too which helps getting through those tough bits.
