Frequently Asked Questions
What Should I Wear?
You should wear some clothes that are loose fitting and easy to move in. If your problem is from the hip down, a pair of shorts would be ideal. If you have a shoulder problem, a sports top or vest would be ideal so that your therapist can see the shoulder joint. If you don’t own any shorts don’t worry, we always keep a couple of spares in the clinic!
What To Expect When I Arrive
When you arrive you can make your way up the stairs to the waiting area, where you be greeted by whoever is on the desk (Rachel or Derek) and you will be offered a drink of water or coffee (if you wish). You can then fill out a new patient form, so we can got some personal and medical details. Please arrive 5 – 10 minutes early so you can enjoy your drink and feel comfortable before you assessment.
How Will I Feel After My Session?
Usually you will feel absolutely fine, and have better tools to manage your pain from the get go! Occasionally, you may feel a little sore if there is hands on treatment done on muscles that are a source of the problem. However, this nearly always settles down within 48 hours and there is not need to panic.

Aoife Mullally (Low back pain)
“I attended Derek’s clinic suffering with extremely bad reoccurring back pain, it was so painful that I couldn’t stand straight and it was affecting every part of my daily life. I had previously attended a chiropractor which resolved the issue at the time but did not focus on solving the problem long term which Derek did. I completed my 6 week treatment plan last week and I am feeling fantastic. Derek also gave me exercises to continue with which he forwarded to me through online videos which are extremely helpful. I would highly recommend Derek to anyone suffering with any type of back pain. He is so professional and helpful”
Enda Murray (Foot and ankle pain)
“Excellent treatment provided in a relaxed environment. I went to Derek with foot and ankle trouble 2 weeks prior to a half marathon. In a few sessionsderek had found the issue, treated the injury and provided easy strength and conditiuoning exercises to incorporate in my training. I completed the half marathon without any issues. Thanks for your help” Enda
