Testimonials From Oisin's Clients
“Having suffered from muscle tension in various muscle groups I have tried many different treatments to release tension and muscle knots (deep tissue massage, cupping, etc).
Even though those treatments gave me some relief, I was very glad for finding out about dry needling when Muhammad Sohail Akhter first introduced it to me in an appointment.
After having immediate relief in my calves, which had been very tight for a long time, I also had dry needling done to many other muscles and I find it to be very effective,
especially in bigger muscles where the tension might be very deep in the tissue. Muhammad is very experienced with dry needling, having done it for many years and knowing which muscles to release for each case and the best way to do it. Highly recommend it."

“I've have seen Muhammad on three occasions over the last few years. Twice for a sciatic nerve issue and once for an issue with my heel. On one occasion, I was unable to straighten my leg fully without immense pain, and I left the dry needling session with Muhammad with a full range of motion. Muhammad has quickly diagnosed my issues, performed some exercises, given great advice and follow up exercises to continue my recovery. It's a pleasure to work with him and I have often told friends and colleagues to ask for him specifically.”

I absolutely would recommend Alessandro, the man is gifted. I went to see him after I had a fall, I was in serious pain in my neck, shoulders and back. He convinced me to try dry needling which worked extremely well. He also made a plan of action that he claimed would definitely help me feel better which I didn’t fully believe at the beginning. However, every session he emailed me exercises to do. I had that many problems with constant pains in different parts of my body, but his exercises worked immensely well. Alessandro assured me it could be fixed and kept working on it with me, which included manipulations, and completely got rid of my pain.

I am delighted to say that I have finally found a physiotherapist who genuinely provides an individual, specific client based, tailor made solution to pain relief and long term maintenance. Alessandro made me feel instantly at ease, making special efforts to understand the complexity of my particular issues. The practical home advice he has provided as part of my treatment is very easy to follow and effective. I would have no hesitation in recommend him.

I had my first appointment with Alessandro at Spectrum in Lucan a few weeks ago. He used dry needling and manipulation to treat my problem- the relief after one session was fantastic. He is by far the most caring and knowledgeable physio I have attended and I have been to a few in the past. I am continuing to have treatment with him and would highly recommend him.

I have recently had Joint Screening with Spectrum Health which is covered by my VHI Healthcare package. Alessandro was very thorough with this screening and subsequent to that I had three half hour sessions with him to help my stiff joints mobility. As follow up I had to continue with the daily exercises that were prescribed to help with joint mobility
into the future. I am delighted to say that the improvement (and lack of
pain) has been stark to my surprise and amazement.I am walking daily now pain free.
