Hi We Are Paddy, Colin, And Aoife, It’s Great To Meet You…

We are Compass Physio and our story starts as 3 friends who travelled the world and returned home to Ireland with a desire to share our skills with our local community.

Our Goal is to Educate, Empower and make a real difference each day we open the clinic door.

That’s what’s really led to us to opening our clinics in our local areas of Enfield, Kilcock and Castlecomer.

One of our Core values at Compass Physio is to offer solutions to problems (not just a diagnosis) while creating a wow factor experience.

We are constantly improving our offerings to you so that each client who attends gets the best possible care and outcome.

So if you are sick and tired of feeling sore or not being able to walk the loop around the town or play with the grandkids without worrying about your back then reach out to us.

There are plenty of options ranging from a free 15 minute chat right through to a full detailed assessment and plan of care to get you achieving your goal.

We want to break down the barriers to people receiving the highest quality physiotherapy for themselves and their loved ones.

If you’re not sure if we can help, pick up the phone or send us a message, we will always point you in the right direction. We have dealt with most scenarios and still get that same buzz from seeing our clients achieve their goals that we did when we first started.
