Shane Fishman – Senior Physiotherapist

Qualifications & Education:
Shane is a fully licensed Chartered Physiotherapist and is a current a member of the Irish Society of Chartered Physiotherapists. He completed his Honours Specialization in Kinesiology (BSc) at Western University in London, Ontario, Canada where he developed a foundation of knowledge in anatomy, biomechanics, athletic injuries and physiology. He later attended University College Dublin to complete his Professional Masters of Physiotherapy where he developed a strong interest in Musculoskeletal clinical work.
Experience & Interests : 
After completing numerous clinical placements in a variety of hospital and clinical musculoskeletal settings, Shane developed a keen interest in furthering his knowledge of myofascial pain. He has since completed courses in Trigger Point Dry Needling and the Foundations of Acupuncture by the British Medical Acupuncture Society in order to develop his toolset in treating myofascial pain. Additionally, in Toronto, Canada, Shane received training in Functional Range Release to advance his skills in soft tissue release and is a Certified Functional Release (F.R.®) Lower Limb Provider. While Shane integrates these hands on tools in his treatment to help desensitize his patients pain and symptoms, he is also very keen on looking at the body in a holistic way and looks to address the root of the problem in order to help minimize future recurrences and flare ups. After reducing the pain/symptoms, Shane enjoys taking his patients through a graded rehabilitation program, exposing them to gradual challenges and building resiliency in his patients so they have the confidence to engage in any activities of daily living.
Shane is also a dedicated practitioner of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu where he currently holds a rank of black belt and competes internationally winning Gold at the 2018 and 2019 Nogi European Championships and Bronze at the 2019 Pan American Championships. Growing up in Canada he enjoyed playing ice hockey, while he continues to practice yoga and weight lifting outside of Jiu-Jitsu training.
