Rob McCabe MISCP, Chartered Physiotherapist
BSc Sport Science & Health, MSc Physio, MSc Sports Physio
Rob established McCabe Physiotherapy in October 2015. A Kildare native he went to school in Newbridge before going to Dublin City University where he graduated with a BSc (Hons) Sports Science and Health. He then went on to graduate with an MSc Physiotherapy from Robert Gordon University Aberdeen. He has worked in private practice in Kildare and Dublin over the last 11 years gaining invaluable experience in a broad range of musculoskeletal conditions.
More recently he returned to further his studies completing a Masters in Sports Physiotherapy at UCD. Research topics he has carried out to date include: 'The Reliability of The Lindop Mobility Scale with Parkinson's Disease', 'Evaluation of Speed and Power in Gaelic Footballers', and most recently 'Reliability of the Functional Movement Screen with long distance runners'.
A keen athlete himself Rob has been immersed in exercise and sport all his life playing inter county football with Kildare, rugby with Clontarf but now a keen runner taking part in marathon and endurance events throughout the country. Due to this he has a particular interest in movement and mechanics and sees a broad range of patients from those having undergone orthopaedic surgery to more complex conditions like persistent low back pain. His interest in movement mechanics and pain spans across all walks of life and applies similar assessment and treatment principles.
Rob has been Physiotherapist for the Kildare Senior Hurling team for the past 2 seasons and Head Physiotherapist with the Kildare senior footballers for 2018 season. He was also involved in the setting up of an in-house physiotherapy service at the Defence Forces Training Centre, at The Curragh Camp where he also worked during 2016.
