Dr. Kieran O'Sullivan

Biography

Kieran graduated from University College Dublin in 1999. In 2004 he completed an MSc in Manipulative Therapy at Curtin University of Technology, Perth, Western Australia. In 2008 he was awarded specialist member status by the Irish Society of Chartered Physiotherapists. He joined the University of Limerick in 2005. His research interests are musculoskeletal pain and injury, low back pain in particular. He completed his PhD on low back pain in 2012, funded by the Health Research Board. From 2016-2019, he moved to Qatar to head up a spinal pain centre at Aspetar Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Hospital, a FIFA- and IOC-accredited centre. He returned to UL in 2019. He is currently involved in several research projects relating to musculoskeletal pain, nationally and internationally.

Research Interests

Musculoskeletal pain and injury, including spinal pain, hamstring injury, shoulder pain, tendinopathy

Bio-psycho-social models of care for persistent pain

Teaching Interests

I have taught at UL since 2005. My primary teaching area is musculoskeletal pain. I have been short-listed on two occasions for the teaching excellence award, and invited by UL to record a brief video on my teaching at UL. I completed a Specialist Diploma in Teaching, Learning and Scholarship at UL in 2012, being awarded 1st class honours. I teach at other universities (nationally and internationally). I have acted as external examiner for programmes at other third level institutions.
