Mr. Tony Phelan Bsc(Hons)

On your first consultation we will take your full case history and also assess your painful condition/injury. Once we have identified the root-cause of your painful condition or injury we will address this by treating the appropriate area.

Your treatment is typically carried out through light clothing and is a hands-on approach. Your treatment involves applying pressure to muscles that have been identified as being dysfunctional in order to restore your musculature to a healthy state. The pressure applied can range from light to deep pressure. However, patient comfort is paramount and the amount of pressure used is determined by your age and the body-type. For example, the pressure used on an elderly client would be much lighter than the pressure used on a strong rugby player in his twenties.


In addition, some light work may also be done on your joints if necessary. You may also be given some home-exercises/home-care advice to help your recovery. Here are just some of the conditions that we successfully treat on a regular basis:

  • Back Pain
  • Sport’s Injuries
  • Sciatica
  • Muscle Pain
  • Hip Pain

  • Frozen Shoulder
  • Achilles Tendonitis
  • Plantar Fasciitis

A Guide to Physiotherapy: Limerick Pain Relief Clinic Article

Physiotherapists work in a diverse range of clinical settings from public sector (hospitals, hospices and medical charities) to private practice. In a hospital setting your physiotherapist may use the assistance of diagnostic imaging such as X-Rays and MRI scans. In addition to treating orthopedic conditions, your physiotherapist may also treat cardiopulmonary and neurological conditions.

What Treatments are used by a Physio? Limerick Pain Relief Clinic Article

Your physio will initially start out taking a full case history. In a hospital setting your physiotherapist may use the assistance of diagnostic imaging.

  • Physiotherapy Diagnostic Tool: X-Ray

    X-Rays typically show up problems of the skeleton. They will give your physiotherapist information about whether you have a fracture or not and also its precise location. An X-Ray may also yield other information, for example, you may have osteoarthritis (or “wear and tear”) in one or more of your joints.

  • Physiotherapy Diagnostic Tool: MRI Scan

    MRI scans can show up a lot more detailed information than X-Rays. In addition to illustrating problems in the skeletal system, MRI scans can also highlight dysfunctions in other soft tissue systems in the body. Once this is completed your physical examination will commence. Your physiotherapist may use range of motion testing and a selection of orthopedic tests in order to determine the root cause of your dysfunction.


An Article from the Pain Relief Clinic in Limerick: Physiotherapy Treatment Expectations

The treatments used by physios can vary a lot from one physiotherapist to another. The main factors determining this are your physiotherapist’s clinical experience and also the type of continuous professional development that your physiotherapist has undertaken. The most common physiotherapy approach is electro-therapy and exercises although some physiotherapists do practice massage techniques, acupuncture, dry needling and other hands-on approaches.
