What Our Clients Say
"I saw Declan for a foot injury that was mis-diagnosed elsewhere a few times. Declan diagnosed it, referred me for an MRI, did progressive strengthening and now I'm back running stronger than I've felt for years and truly believing I can reach my best and beyond. I cannot recommend Declan enough for foot & ankle injuries."
