In reply to your questions about private physio, you can reclaim a portion of the cost on your insurance. I claim that part, say €20 for example, from the VHI, then put the balance of the cost on my Med1 form for tax relief. I went to Kilkenny Physiotherapy Clinic in Maudlin Street, free parking in Langton's carpark. I used them for my back injury, and again last year for a neck problem. They are great, 30 to 45 mins for €50, but you get your money's worth. Lots of lifestyle advice, exercises along with the actual treatment. They don't try to rip you off, when you're done, you're done. On the minus side, they don't reduce the fee for recurring visits. I don't have any connection to them, I just found them excellent.
