“At UPMC, we strive to build better athletes with a focus on not only recovery, but also injury prevention,” said John Windle, general manager, UPMC sports medicine for UPMC in Ireland. “The UPMC Sports Medicine Clinic at TUS Moylish, overlooking Thomond Park, will be equipped and staffed to provide evidence-based, quantitative measurements of strength and performance for optimal care.”
The clinic will be led by sports medicine physician Dr Dualtach Mac Colgáin and a team of sports physiotherapists.
