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

  • Achilles Tendonitis
  • Plantar Fasciitis

What Techniques are used by a Physical Therapist? Limerick Pain Relief Clinic Article

Your physical therapist will typically focus on more hands-on techniques to restore range of motion and resolve painful conditions. Your physical therapist may use range of motion testing and orthopedic testing to get a more accurate picture of your dysfunctions.

    • Physical Therapy Assessment #1: Range of Motion Testing:

If a joint is causing problems, your physical therapist may do a range of motion assessment on it. This involves you attempting to move the joint in all the directions that it moves. If you encounter some pain or restriction in trying to do this, it will help to identify the nature of your dysfunction and consequently it will form the basis of what treatment is required for your rehabilitation.

    • Physical Therapy Assessment #2: Orthopedic Testing:

There are also a number of physical tests that can be undertaken to rule-in or rule-out specific conditions. For example, your physical therapist may use tests for cruciate ligament injuries in your knees and also for herniated discs in your lower back.
Once your treatment plan has been devised, techniques such as those listed below would be used to rehabilitate you.

    • Physical Therapy Treatment #1: Deep Tissue Massage

If your physical therapist has identified a problem in your musculature, deep tissue massage may be done on the area to facilitate your rehabilitation. This will restore your correct muscle tone and also increase circulation in order to help removal of built up toxins in your muscles.

    • Physical Therapy Treatment #2: Joint Mobilisations

If your physical therapist has identified a dysfunctional joint, a joint mobilisation may be performed on you. This typically involves your physical therapist moving your joint in a way that restores the full movement and also the quality of your joints movement.
