As Founder and Clinical Director of Louise O’ Rourke Physiotherapy & Pilates, Louise’s goal is simple

– “empower our clients to reach their optimal wellbeing through an innovative, whole-body approach”.

Louise’s main goal is to help her patients and their families as much as she possibly can. Over the past 15 years she has learnt so much from working alongside her Physio and Pilates clients and has loved every minute of it.
Having worked in a diverse range of environments from UK hospitals to private practice she soon learnt she could not provide the care and services she aspired to working alone. Over the past decade Louise has built a Team of experts, each specialised in their own fields to provide a high standard of care. They will use a wide range of services to achieve the best possible outcomes and results for their patients providing a multidisciplinary approach.
Louise is very grateful to work alongside such a dedicated Team and eternally grateful for every patient that walks through our doors. Louise and her Team work closely together to work towards their patient’s goals. She absolutely loves hearing the buzz in the clinic with her Team members helping their patients and the laughter coming from the classes!
Louise is all about her client’s needs and creating the best possible experience for them. She continuously strives to find the latest research or technology that will help her patients to get those extra results from their treatments and get them back to doing the things they love – a fact 50 + postgraduate courses, 20 + Pilates training courses and her partner Dave will attest to.
Outside of work Louise likes to walks her crazy dogs in the forest and loves having fun with her friends. On the weekends she helps her partner Dave muck out the stables!!
