Eoin Ó Conaire

Eoin Ó Conaire is an award-winning chartered physiotherapist and shoulder specialist. Since qualifying from the University of Brighton with first class honours in 1999, he has gathered a huge breadth and depth of experience. This has included working at large London teaching hospitals, professional and elite sport and in private practice.

As Musculoskeletal Clinical Lead and lead Extended Scope Practitioner at Central London Community Healthcare, he developed a specialist orthopaedic triage and treatment service and worked clinically in the Upper Limb service. He also set up and ran an ultrasound-guided injection service and in collaboration with Dr. Jeremy Lewis developed and validated the first physiotherapy-led arthrographic hydrodistension service for Frozen Shoulder. In 2011 this was awarded funding from the Health Foundation Shine programme for innovations in healthcare.

Academically he has gained an MSc (Advancing Practice) with distinction from the University of Birmingham, been published in peer-reviewed journals and presented his work at international conferences. He was awarded the MACP MSc research prize in 2009 and Central London Community Healthcare therapist of the year in 2011.

In 2012 – together with Clinical Psychologist Dr. Róisín Joyce – he set up Evidence-Based Therapy Centre, a multi-disciplinary healthcare practice in Galway. They have a shared vision to develop a service which puts into practice the highest quality research evidence. This combined with their clinical expertise and an emphasis on working collaboratively with their patients can provide the best possible outcomes.

In 2013, Eoin developed the Shoulder Masterclass. This distils his clinical and academic knowledge into a two-day highly practical course to help physiotherapists to improve the management of shoulder pain. He also regularly teaches shorter courses, workshops and webinars in the areas of shoulder pain, and psychologically-informed practice.

In 2021 Eoin started his PhD studies under the supervision of Professor Filip Struyf at the University of Antwerp. His area of research is the physiotherapy management of massive irreparable rotator cuff tears.
