Backup Programme

Uniquely, from mid-2012 the clinic is one of a limited group of practices nationwide delivering the Irish Life "Back-up" programme.

Booking an appointment is very easy, either by phone or email to Irish Life quoting your policy number. A member of the Irish Life team will complete a telephone triage and determine your suitability for the programme. See link by clicking here.

What is Back-Up?

The opportunity to get 6 Physiotherapy treatments from a Chartered Physiotherapist covered by your Irish Life Health insurance policy.

Expert personalised advice can help prevent, improve or correct most back and neck pain. That’s why Back-Up connects you directly with a Chartered Physiotherapist who acts as your ‘case manager’. The physiotherapist clinically assesses your problem, and then develops a treatment plan bespoke to you over six physiotherapy sessions.

Whatever your treatment journey, your dedicated case manager will guide you every step of the way, all for a once off fee of only €50. Followed carefully, your Back-Up programme will help you recover quickly to prevent a chronic problem developing.

Three steps to getting started:

Step 1

Get back on track today. Book an appointment in the MyClinic section of your online account here or call 01 562 5150, 8am - 7pm Mon to Fri (excluding bank holidays and Christmas Eve) 8.30am - 4.30pm Sat

Step 2

The Back-Up team will agree a time that’s convenient for you and book a triage assessment over the phone with a clinical case manager. Alternatively you have the option to complete your assessment virtually via our new digital assessment. It will ask questions about you and your symptoms then, based on your responses, signpost you to the most appropriate level of care. For peace of mind all assessments are reviewed by a physiotherapist to ensure the correct decision has been made.

Step 3

Whichever option you choose, your injury will be assessed and you will receive a personalised treatment plan. This may consist of app based exercise management, face-to-face or virtual appointments with a chartered physiotherapist or home working assessment as appropriate.
