what we do

Back Pain

Recent study indicates 80% of the general population suffer with some form of back pain. Most people think that once you have back pain nothing can be done about it,this is absolutely not true, here at Don Kelly pain relief i have successfully treated all different types of low or upper back pain either caused from a road traffic accident or an innocuous fall, To back pain caused from sports injuries,bulging discs, osteo or rheumatoid arthritis or simple muscle pain. After over fifteen years of treating all types of patients i have found that a custom made orthotic has helped alleviate back pain in over 85% of my patients.


After back pain this is the most common type of injury that I see on a day to day basis. Neck and Shoulder pain are commonly caused from road traffic accidents, sports injuries to people working in offices who use computers and android devices,especially phones held to the ear by ones shoulder. In most cases this type of pain is muscular which can be easily treated with Physiotherapy or Acupuncture in two to three sessions, more complicated neck and shoulder injuries can take a little longer to resolve especially if caused by trauma with force,i.e. road traffic accident, sports injury or a serious fall,another common shoulder problem is frozen shoulder this dehabalating condition responds very well to a combination of physical therapy and acupuncture.


I see a lot of this type of pain in sports people and people who have been involved in a road traffic accident and also people presenting with flat foot syndrome, oversupinators with leg discrepancy and people with bulging discs in the lumbar-sacral region. Knee pain is very common in people with arthritis and is the most common injury in soccer players or any sport which involves a lot of twisting motion especially in grass based sports.

Chronic Pain

People who suffer with chronic pain are probably the most frustrated pain sufferers out there because most of the time their pain has been given a name like fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, chronic pain syndrome, chronic fatigue Syndrome, Headaches,ulcerative colitis and chrones,ibs, to name but a few. Generally these people are advised that they will have to live with these conditions and the only form of therapy for them is drug therapy. I have successfully treated people with these conditions in my clinics in Limerick and Charleville,co, Cork and in most cases they are no longer relying on drug therapy. The Acupuncture style I practice in my clinics is very successful in treating all chronic conditions,the ones i have named previously are just a few that can be treated, many more conditions can be treated successfully also.


Neurological Conditions respond very well to Acupuncture and can drastically improve the quality of life and reduce symptomes of neurological pain from burning pain in the extremities to phantom limb pain to name but a few.

Orthotics | Don Kelly Physical Therapy & Acupuncture

In addition to providing relief for painful foot problems or an injury, those who may benefit from orthotics include people who must walk or stand excessively on the job. For those who are active in sports, orthotics will often increase endurance, performance and strength. For overweight individuals, orthotics can help to counteract the extra stress on the feet, as minor problems are often magnified due to the increased weight. Read more

Excellent treatment! Don is very accommodating and always finds time to fit you in. I went to him last summer following a rib injury and I only had two weeks until the Championships. Many told me I wouldn’t be able to compete but Don had the solution. He gave me alternative training sessions so that…
