Deirdre O’Kelly

Physiotherapist – B. Physio (Hons), MBA

Deirdre qualified as a physiotherapist from the University College Dublin and has over 20 years experience working extensively as a principle physio with some of the UK’s leading orthopaedic surgeons and sports physicians both in hospitals and private clinics. She specialises in ante and postnatal treatment, orthopaedics, acute or chronic sports injuries and other musculo-skeletal conditions. She still consults at the BUPA clinic in central London.
Her main area of interest is musculoskeletal injury and rehabilitation, pregnancy related and pelvic girdle pain. Deridre has specific expertise in hip, knee, foot and ankle injuries, spinal conditions and rehabilitation of the shoulder.

She also treats postural neck and back pain, joint laxity, shoulder impingement and rotator cuff injuries, tendon injures, gym related sports injuries, osteoarthritis and joint hypermobility.

Deirdre has also undergone Pilates matwork and specialised Ante and Post-natal Pilates training with the APPI (Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute).

Deirdre understands the importance of exercise and treatment both during and after pregnancy. Dealing with the increased pressures on joints and muscles caused by a hormone called relaxin is important to prevent or reduce pregnancy related pain. Physio and Pilates are both fantastic ways to deal with this! Painful backs, nerve related leg pain and sore shoulders during pregnancy are all commonly managed by Deirdre in clinic.

If you have pregnancy related pain Deirdre would love to help, she has £20 off 1hr appointments in October.

Trained to use acupuncture and is a member of the Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists.

Deirdre is a very keen skier and a regular gym user and applies her strength and conditioning knowledge to her clinical practice.

What our clients say

“Ricky is great! earlier this year I was training for my first Ironman and was having lower back issues, when I came to Ricky I wasn’t even able to rin 1km run, the prospect of completeing Ironman felt like a a pipe dream. Ricky got me back up and (quite litterally) running again! Now I dont’ want to diminish my hard work in this whole finishing an ironman thing, however, if it wasn’t for Ricky I wouldn’t have got to the start line! If you need a Chiropractor, Osteopath or Sport Massage the people (including Ricky) at Summit Wellbeing are fantastic….if you don’t beleive me just look at my face!…they too can make you this happy…go on! Go and see them! Treat yourself!”

"I had a great couple of sessions with Chris – having gone in with daily headaches and a history of spasms and restriction in the neck and mid back, I saw almost immediate improvements. The first session included a detailed discovery, some acupuncture, massage and a small manipulation – I felt immediately looser, and the following day was even better still. Chris was quick to hone in on the problem, and targeted it straight away. A really great experience.”
