Patient Testimonials

Back Pain Eased!

Arriving to the clinic in agonizing back pain outside of normal office hours on a Saturday. The front door was opened by Dr. Ed Bates himself which set the tone for the whole visit. Friendly and very helpful, I’d highly recommend this practice to anybody in future. Pain eased considerably within hours- later that Saturday evening (20:00pm). Dr. Ed Bates rang me personally to inquire after my well-being (unfortunately I missed that call, but it was above and beyond any service I ever expected). The office staff are extremely helpful and courteous, overall a brilliant service to have locally.

Three Generations Receiving Care

This concerns my son and not me. What i thought was a routine check ended that my son was suffering but now has no pain. He use to have a migraine at odd times but since attending the clinic he is very much improved and is happier with himself. I am 19 years going to the clinic but go on a regular checkup or adjustment giving its proper term. Pain free thank God. Now my mother is also a client. My mum was in severe pain with her back she was going to alternative practices i was driving her to all theses so one day i said i am taking you to Kilworth Chiropractic Clinic full stop. I phoned and got an appointment that day. 2 weeks later she ran out of the clinic she was in her early 80’s at the time. She ran out because she was a new woman. Love the staff! Thanks again 3 generations of Foleys attending hopefully for along time to come.

I Will Be Pain Free

I believe Dr. Bates mission is to kick start my healing and my impression is that he really wants to empower me to work with him to achieve ultimate healing and this cannot be achieved without adhering to exercises provided and improving diet. I have full confidence that I will be pain free and able to look after my family again with his help.

Unable To Play Sport Because Of Back Pain

I have suffered from almost continuous low back problems since I was 18 years old. The problem had got to the stage where I was unable to play any sport. I had tried all kinds of other therapies, with little or no success.

So when I first came to the Kilworth Chiropractic Clinic my expectations were not that high. However within 4 – 6 weeks of starting care I began to notice significant changes. These days I am delighted to be back playing football and training hard. Even my family and friends have noticed a change in me, I am standing a lot straighter and I am definitely more flexible. The above testimonial is a true and accurate reflection of my history.

- Barry O.

Back Hill Walking

Before I first came to the Kilworth Chiropractic Clinic I had been suffering for at least 3 years with fairly severe low back pain. The pain was aggravated by simple tasks such as bending and lifting. Although I had had manual chiropractic treatment in the past any relief I got then was very short lived. Needless to say I was some what skeptical trying another chiropractor especially because they used a very gentle and low force form of adjusting.

However, although progress was slow initially I noticed significant improvement within 6 months. These days I only very occasionally notice my low back and that is usually after a heavy days work. What is great now though is that I recover so much quicker. I am able to enjoy hill walking again and as such I feel my overall health has improved. The above testimonial is a true and accurate reflection of my history.

- Peter O.

Such Pain Relief

I first came to the Kilworth Chiropractic Clinic suffering with constant low back pain. I had had 2 car accidents about 20 years ago and had suffered really ever since. I had tried all kinds of treatment including another Chiropractor with little or no success. However within a couple of weeks of care at the Kilworth Chiropractic Clinic I began to notice a definite improvement.

These days I am overall feeling so much better. What has also amazed me is that adjusting my spine has helped other seemingly unrelated problems such as stomach problems. Consequently I get adjusted periodically to try and keep me feeling good. The above testimonial is a true and accurate reflection of my history.

Excellent Care

Hi my name is Michael O’Shea. I have been coming to the Kilworth Chiropractic Clinic for years following a serious injury to my low back as a teenager. I had tried the usual pain killers and anti inflammatory medication with little success. However relief was pretty much instantaneous with chiropractic care. What was most reassuring was being told and assured that other than nerve irritation there was nothing more serious going on!

These days I come in every month or so for an adjustment to keep me pain free. However, naturally from time to time I do something to aggravate the back but within a couple of adjustments I am back on track. The above testimonial is a true and accurate reflection of my history.

- Michael O.

Surprised With Care

I injured my low back over 12 years ago after a serious fall. Over the years I had tried the traditional medical route with scans, x-rays and medication – with little success. I found out about the Kilworth Chiropractic Clinic through the Golden Pages. To my surprise I noticed immediate improvement with Chiropractic care.

These days I am now able to walk with little discomfort. However, naturally I do realise that I will never be perfect but I am very happy with my results so far especially having suffered for so long. The above testimonial is a true and accurate reflection of my history.

- Paddy H.

Lifting Injury

I initially injured my low back in 1999 after a lifting injury however I have also had a couple of serious falls in the past. In the past I had received manual chiropractic treatment with quite good success, so understandably I was a little skeptical of the effectiveness of the Activator method. Especially considering how gentle it is. Initially for the first 2-3 months there was very little in the way of improvement, however eventually I began to notice a change.

These days I am on the whole feeling pretty good but considering the physical nature of my work I realise that I do require ongoing maintenance treatment. Occasionally I over do it and suffer a slight relapse, however within a couple of treatments I am back on track. The above testimonial is a true and accurate reflection of my history.

Curvature Of The Spine

I injured my back lifting something in 1997 and initially tried the conventional medical route with pain killers and anti-inflammatory medication. Realising this was only a temporary measure I was encouraged by my family to attend the Kilworth Chiropractic Clinic. Within a month I began to notice an improvement.

These days I receive periodic adjustments but I am able to lead a full, active and pain free life. In all honesty I am a lot more active than I could have wished for especially because I have a curvature of the spine (scoliosis). I am even able to play Tag rugby! The above testimonial is a true and accurate reflection of my history.

Uncontrollable Crying

My daughter Orlagh who was only 6 ½ months old when I first brought her to the clinic. She had suffered for 6 months with Colic where she literally cried and screamed uncontrollably, every morning and every evening. We had tried other forms of therapy with no success. Nothing seemed to have an effect.

As a new parent, it was a very traumatic time. Fortunately, a relation told us about the clinic and recommended that we give it a try and amazingly we began to see almost immediate relief. Apart from the amazing results the staff are an absolute pleasure to deal with. Since Orlagh’s experience I have referred several family members and friends. The above testimonial is a true and accurate reflection of our experience.

- Aine H.

Difficulty Feeding

I was only 2½ weeks old when my parents brought me to Kilworth Chiropractic Clinic. I had a particularly traumatic birth and I found breast feeding very difficult especially on one side. I couldn’t latch on because it hurt my neck to turn. However immediately after my first treatment this became easier.

These days I come back for regular checkups and everyone says how happy and content I am! The treatment does not hurt at all and I don’t even cry!! The above testimonial is a true and accurate reflection of my history.

- Jake R.

Difficulty Swallowing & Delayed Speech

I first came to the Kilworth Chiropractic Clinic when I was 3 years old suffering from the severe side effects of swallowing caustic soda. At that stage I was up and down to Crumlin Hospital for treatment however I had constant difficulty swallowing and my speech was delayed. Amazingly within about 3 months I began to notice a real improvement, I was suddenly able to swallow and eat normally. Furthermore, my speech therapist saw a dramatic and significant improvement in my speech. This was more than just coincidence.

These days I get adjusted every 6 – 8 weeks and am fit and healthy. The above testimonial is a true and accurate reflection of my history.

Chiropractic Works

I had been suffering with my right shoulder for a number of years before starting treatment at Kilworth Chiropractic Clinic. Although it was at least 4-6 weeks before I noticed any improvement I am now pain free.

I am now able to play golf without pain, a remarkable achievement in itself. What impressed me most about the Kilworth Chiropractic Clinic was that I was told from the outset what goals I could realistically achieve and what exactly was wrong. No longer am I relying on painkillers to get by. Quite simply Chiropractic works. The above testimonial is a true and accurate reflection of my history.

- Dan G.

Chiropractic Improved My Golf

I had suffered with continuous pain in my left knee for almost 15 years since a heavy fall. Unfortunately in the back of my mind I felt surgery was the only solution for my problem, so I was always reluctant to seek help and do something about it. However, within 2 weeks of starting chiropractic care at the Kilworth Chiropractic Clinic I noticed an improvement.

These days I am almost completely pain free. I am able to walk and most importantly play golf without any discomfort. In fact since I started care my golf has improved in leaps and bounds. My handicap has been slashed 5 points in the past 3 months. As a result I may no longer be winning on the golf course but I am certainly winning off it! The above testimonial is a true and accurate reflection of my history.

Thankful For A Friends Advice.

I came to the Kilworth Chiropractic Clinic following the recommendation of a good friend of mine. I was complaining of severe shoulder pain and stiffness, following a heavy fall. I had tried massage and painkillers with no success. Simple tasks such as lifting, getting dressed and even sleeping were a major problem. However within one week of starting chiropractic care I began to notice a real improvement.

Today I am able to drive and sleep without pain and really do normal things. Furthermore I am also walking and feeling so much better. The above testimonial is a true and accurate reflection of my history.

Migraines After A Car Accident

I had a car accident in 2000 and had suffered since then with severe migraine headaches. The headaches were so bad that I was missing at least a couple of days each month from work. I also suffered from neck pain and stiffness. Turning my head was a real problem. I had tried all types of medication and massage with no improvement. However, within 6 weeks of starting chiropractic care I began to notice a definite improvement.

These days I hardly ever get a headache and have not missed a day off work with a headache since June 2006. I have also noticed an improvement in my general health. I do not seem to catch as many colds or suffer from flu nearly as often. Gone are my days of relying on medication. The above testimonial is a true and accurate reflection of my history.

Chronic Debilitating Pain

I had been suffering with neck pain on and off for almost 20 years before I came to the Kilworth Chiropractic Clinic. The pain was at times completely debilitating and it often stopped me from doing simple tasks such as lifting and even driving. However once I started care I noticed an improvement within about 3 weeks.

These days I feel great and I am finally able to lead a full and active life. Even going to the gym is now possible. However, that said I do realise that to keep me feeling this good I must have periodic adjustments to maintain my flexibility. The above testimonial is a true and accurate reflection of my history.

Pain Free Dancing

I first came to the Kilworth Chiropractic Clinic on the recommendation of some of my friends. I had been suffering for years with neck and low back pain. I had tried several other therapies but with little benefit including other chiropractors. I even had an operation on my jaw to relieve the neck discomfort. Amazingly within 3 to 4 weeks of treatment with the activator I began to feel an improvement.

These days I am able to go walking, do the gardening and set dance without pain. I have so much more energy and I am pain-free. I am in so much better humour. I have recommended care to lots of my friends and family. The above testimonial is a true and accurate reflection of my history.

Unable To Work A Full Day

I had suffered with severe low back and leg pain for years before I came to the Kilworth Chiropractic Clinic. I had 2 serious car accidents in the 90’s and had suffered with debilitating back problems since then. Quite literally I was unable to work a full day’s work. I had tried physiotherapy and medication with little success. However within a couple of weeks of starting chiropractic care I began to notice an improvement.

These days I am, whilst not cured, much much better and I am now able to walk, go shooting and work with much more ease. The above testimonial is a true and accurate reflection of my history.

- Michael M.

Grateful For A Friends Advice

I had suffered with severe low back and left leg pain for at least 12 months before I was recommended by a friend to come to the Kilworth Chiropractic Clinic. Much to my surprise and literally within about 2 weeks of starting care I began to notice an improvement.

These days I am able to lead a full active and most importantly a pain free life. Naturally considering the physical nature of my work I need to get adjusted periodically. The above testimonial is a true and accurate reflection of my history.

Major Disc Herniation & Severe Sciatica

I first came to the Kilworth Chiropractic Clinic in May 2007 literally out of desperation. I was suffering from severe low back and leg pain. I had had a CT scan and the consultant at that time had diagnosed me as suffering from 2 prolapsed discs in my lumbar spine and sciatica. I had tried physiotherapy with little or no success and surgery was very much looking likely. As a last resort I decided to try Chiropractic care and although it took at least 2-3 months of treatment before I started noticing any significant change I have improved considerably and the pain is now substantially reduced.

These days I am able to walk much longer distances and am standing pretty normally. The above testimonial is a true and accurate reflection of my history.

Struggled In With A Walking Stick

Hi my name is Peg Doran. I came to the Kilworth Chiropractic Clinic initially with low back and leg pain after a helpless fall on ice. At that time I was hardly able to walk because of the pain. However literally within a few adjustments I began to notice an improvement.

These days I feel so much better and have been able to resume playing pitch and putt. Other benefits include an increase in energy. I feel much livelier than previous. On my recommendation and encouragement a lot of my family have also attended the Clinic, including my grandson who used to suffer from asthma. I am delighted to say that they are all very happy with their care! The above testimonial is a true and accurate reflection of my history.

My Mobility Has Improved

Hi my name is Anne McCarthy. I have been coming to the Kilworth Chiropractic Clinic on a regular basis since 1992. I had originally injured my back and my knees after a serious fall off a horse in 1982. I have found that regular chiropractic care has significantly improved my mobility and has allowed me to carry out an active and full life. I also feel a lot better in myself.

Without chiropractic care I am convinced that a normal lifestyle would not have been possible. The above testimonial is a true and accurate reflection of my history

Even My Heartburn Has Gone!

Hi my name is Liam Cummins. I first came to the clinic on the recommendation of my G.P after a fall where I suffered chronic upper back pain. I had also suffered with arm pain for about 3 months after a lifting injury. I also suffered a lot from heartburn. Anyway I began to notice a definite improvement after the first month of treatment.

These days I am largely pain free and I am feeling so much better. I have more energy, am sleeping better and just feel more alive. Work and walking my dogs is no longer a problem and even my heartburn has gone. The above testimonial is a true and accurate reflection of my history.
