Physiotherapy Limerick at the Pain Relief Clinic
by I Love Limerick Correspondent Laura Goggins
Anthony Phelan opened the Pain Relief Clinic located on O’Connell Avenue, above O Sullivans Pharmacy, right in the heart of Limerick city over 11 years ago. The clinic is a modern and up-to-date business and offers the community physiotherapy treatment which they can rely on. Specialising in physio treatment and acupuncture for sports injuries and painful conditions, Anthony tells me how he believes his clinic is “the place to come for pain relief in Limerick. We have all walks of life walking though the door for help and its great to own a business that makes people feel better and gives back to the community of Limerick”.
While speaking to Anthony, he outlines his numerous qualifications and his continuously expanding capabilities in the field of physiotherapy. He is qualified as a registered Physical Therapist, as well as holding a degree in sports therapy. He is currently in the process of undertaking further training in the UK and the USA in order to ensure that the clients who avail of this beneficial treatment are availing of the most advanced physical therapy available in the world today. All of the treatments available from the Limerick Pain Relief Clinic are covered by most major health insurance agencies, including VHI, Laya, Glo Health and Aviva. Your treatment also qualifies for MED-1 refund.This service is outstanding and should be your primary port of call when seeking physical therapy treatment. At the extremely reasonable price of just €40 per session, the clinic is one of the cheapest locations to receive such high quality treatment in Munster.
Following the interview, I was amazed to find out just how many varying types of injuries can be dealt with by the clinic. These include back and neck pain, shoulder pain, headaches, frozen shoulder, sciatica, hip pain, knee pain, ankle pain, sports injuries, fibromyalgia and most other musculo-skeletal painful conditions. To its clients, the clinic is a place where they can receive pain relief in a relaxed and confidential environment, while still feeling they are receiving the best treatment possible. Anthony tells me the desire for his “friendly, community-based business to be somewhere people can approach for consultation and stay for the high quality treatment it provides.” Someone who has been a client of the clinic for many years is Richard Lynch, the founder of ILoveLimerick.com. Richard tells me, “My family has been to Anthony over the years for pain relief. I have had issues with my lower back for years while living in New York. I returned to Limerick to live here and discovered the Limerick Pain Relief Clinic and finally said goodbye to my back pain! Anthony cured me! He then treated my brother Eric who is a plumber and whose job is very labour intensive as he had also been suffering with back pain for years and he also cured him! Finally my mother Florence has Parkinson’s Disease for 22 years and has a herniated disc in her neck and Anthony has been treating her on an ongoing basis and while he cannot cure her due to her condition, he has been keeping her pain to a minimum and making her quality of life much better. We are all indebted to him and his business and I would urge anyone suffering from pain to avail of his service.”
Clients have the freedom to choose from morning, afternoon or evening appointments between the hours of 11a.m. and 7 p.m., Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.
