F.A.Q.

What can I expect on my first visit?

When you first attend Alan Keane Physiotherapy, your physio will:

  • Ask you some general questions with regards to your general health, occupation and hobbies and specific questions relating to your symptoms and how they may be affecting your everyday life.
  • Assess your condition during a physical examination and make a diagnosis.
  • Discuss your goals from physiotherapy.
  • Design and plan a programme to meet your goals.
  • Advise on activities for daily living or return to sport.
  • Liaise with other medical professionals e.g. your GP, with your permission, on your condition and progress as necessary.

Do I need to be referred by a Doctor for Physiotherapy?

No, you can self-refer to physiotherapy and we also accept referrals from GPs, Consultants, Public Health Nurses, complementary therapists and other healthcare providers.

What is the duration and cost of a Physiotherapy appointment?

Each session is allocated 1 hour and will cost 60 euros.

What payment options are available?

We accept cash, cheque or electronic card payment.

What will I need to bring to my Physiotherapy appointment?

Please bring a list of any current medications and any scan results eg. MRI with you to your first appointment.


You will need to expose the affected area; therefore, you might be more comfortable in a pair of shorts for low back or leg issues.  Ladies may also prefer to bring a vest top for an upper limb issue.

Where is Alan Keane Physiotherapy located?

We are based in Woodview Family Doctors, Sallybrook, Glanmire, Co. Cork. There is plenty of car parking available.
