I have had the pleasure of working with Ronan from RE:PLAY for almost a decade. Playing elite level sport means relying heavily upon physiotherapy support to keep me on the pitch and return from injuries within very tight timeframes. In this area I have been spoilt; Ronan has supported me physically and psychologically to always give me the best opportunity to perform.
