Purpose Built


The Blackrock Osteopaths Clinic practice was founded in 1993 by Simon Curtis.

Originally located in central Blackrock, the practice moved to take advantage of the dedicated, custom designed and more comfortable premises currently occupied in the leafy suburb of Stillorgan.

What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a holistic approach to treating back, muscle, joint, mobility, pain and inflamation problems.

The Osteopathic treatment process begins with a properly qualified practitioner taking a detailed medical history from you in a face-to-face consultation. Your medical history, in conjunction with a phyical examination, helps your Osteopath to diagnose the underlying causes of your aches and pains and will let them give you a personalised treatment plan that can most effectively manage your condition.

Sports injuries?

As well as offering treatment and diagnosis of chronic and acute back, neck and other muscle and joint related pain problems, Blackrock Osteopaths also offers a dedicated sports injury clinic service.

Our senior Blackrock Osteopaths practitioner, Simon, has a long term special interest in the management and treatment of sports related injuries.
