A fantastic new addition to the SBG team is Dee Ryan.
Dee Ryan is our in-house Physiotherapist. Her philosophy in treatment is to target all impairments and predisposing factors to injury. This specific approach to rehabilitation minimizes the risk of re-injury.
Dee holds a Masters in Sports and Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy from the University of South Australia, and a degree in Physiotherapy from Trinity College Dublin. Dee also holds additional qualifications in Dry Needling, Kinesiology taping, Muscle Energy Techniques for Lumbar and Pelvic Dysfunctions and a Level 2 Sports Trainer Certificate. She has extensive experience working with elite athletes and the general public in Australia, New Zealand and the USA.
Dee offers Physiotherapy evaluations, treatments and screening services. Screenings are for individuals with no specific injury that are keen for preventative action. Dee has designed a whole body screening specific to MMA, the purpose being to highlight any asymmetries in terms of strength, length and functional abilities. The results are analysed and then explained with the prescription of a preventative exercise plan in the follow-up screening. Screenings ultimately improve performance whilst by-passing any potential injuries.
Conditions treated include:
• Sport Injuries
• Back & Neck Pain
• Pre-habilitation and post-surgical rehabilitation
• Chronic Pain
To make bookings please refer to the appointment planner on the notice board in the gym. Members of the general public are welcome. Please feel free to drop into the Therapy Room for a quick discussion on the treatment you may need.

Starting from humble beginnings in a small car garage, this will be John Kavanagh’s 7th and biggest gym to date. “The opening of this monster of a gym is going to be my make or break deal.

Irish Autism Action will also be at the opening and SBG will give discounts to new members who donate more than €20.

It’s a charity close to my heart” says John Kavanagh.
