PhysiCare.ie is a very warm welcoming clinical practice that was set up and is run by Darren O Rourke.
Darren began his interests in anatomy, bio-mechanics and in injury prevention, treatment and rehabilitation after many years training in martial arts and battling with his own set back from pain! Also he was always amazed at how the human body could be so resilient and move so fluidly and yet from time to time for what would seem like no reason at all it would break down and need to be rested/maintained. So the natural progression for him then was to study bio-mechanics, anatomy and physiology more in depth and begin to understand more so, why and how the human body functions and also to train and study in different aspects of treating the body, injuries and painful conditions.
To date Darren has studied with the Acupuncture Foundation (AFI) for 3 years where he qualified with a Diploma in Traditional Chinese Medicine (Acupuncture)(TCM) and he then traveled to China to par-take in a post graduate program and further his studies , he worked in a primary care hospital on a clinical placement in the Nanjing province. From Darren’s time in Nanjing he was awarded a further certificate in Acupuncture and a Licentiate upon completion of the post graduate program.
