treating the whole body.

We treat the whole body as a functional unit instead of breaking it down into sections and only looking at what the symptoms are. Our special functional Integrated approach has helped change so many people’s lives for the better.

Welcome to PhysiCare Integrated Health.

A Specialist Pain Treatment Clinic in Dublin 5

We are Specialist pain clinic in Dublin 5, North County Dublin. With over 10 years of experience we offer an advanced level of clinical assessment, diagnosis and effective treatment for all types of pain disorders from, headaches, neck pain to radiating limb pains, scoliosis, wear and tear & disc issues.

We have undergone the highest levels of education and training to ensure the treatment you receive is the gold standard, patient centered, evidence based physical care currently available, allowing us to achieving phenomenal results.

We Integrate the best of Physical Therapy, Acupuncture, Dry Needling, Manipulation, Soft Tissue Mobilization and Movement re-education to make sure our patients and clients have the most optimal opportunity for recovery and optimal health.


Manipulation is an excellent way to reset joint alignment to  a more optimal position which allows for greater mobility and less stress on the nervous system and helps optimise human posture and function.


We are specialists when it comes to Acupuncture and the science of Acupuncture. We utilize a neurofunctional model of acupuncture mostly as we can then target specific receptors for optimal pain relief and neural rehabilitation from chronic pain, these treatments have also been shown to affect neuroplastic changes in the brain which is also an overlooked component of the chronic pain experience. We also lead the field with Trigger point dry needling and Orthopaedic Motor Point acupuncture.


Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) is a part of our treatment strategy because when there are dysfunctional patterns within your system there will be soft tissue adaptions. Fascial tissue will also build along lines of tension to support areas of dysfunction.


Can’t recommend Darren enough. Had serious pain in my left shoulder(complicated injury I suffered years ago) which prevented me from sleeping and training. After the first session the pain had reduced quite a lot and after the second I was pain free and back training and sleeping with no issues. Darren is top of his trade with exceptional knowledge and such a friendly manner. Again can’t recommend him enough.

I can’t recommend Darren enough. After trying different places over the years Darren is the only one that has been able to make me pain free in one session. He has been helping me with my back problem and he also helps my partner with his knee. Both of us are extremely happy with the time and care PysiCare provides for us.
