The Wild Atlantic Way

The Wild Atlantic Way on Ireland’s west coast leads you through one of the world’s most dramatic coastal landscapes, a landscape on the edge of Europe that has shaped the development of its people, communities and settlements, a landscape that has inspired its own particular language, literature, art, song and dance. It’s a place of many natural features - seascapes, sea-life,cliffs, mountains, glens, loughs, trails and pathways. It’s a place to experience nature at its wildest, a place to explore the history of the Gaels and their religion; a place to experience great events, great food and drink, great music and the craic.

Stage 1. Alleviate Physical Therapy

Alleviate Physical Therapy is delighted to be partnering with The Race. Last year, we helped several clients get ready for the event, witnessing first-hand the preparation involved. It gave us a fascinating insight into what The Race means for participants; how it gets under their skin and challenges them physically, emotionally and psychologically. Alleviate Physical Therapy is a hands-on form of manual therapy that diagnoses, treats and prevents a wide range of musculoskeletal problems and symptoms. At Alleviate, we strive to restore optimum movement and function to your body, whether you’re dealing with pain, recovering from injury or preparing for an endurance event like The Race. Many of the physical problems that people experience manifest themselves through injury, disease, aging or environmental factors. To remain healthy and happy, you need to maintain a pain free body while also addressing your psychological, emotional, and social needs. Alleviate Physical Therapy offers an evidenced-based approach to help restore you to optimum health and a pain-free life.
