Relief Beyond Limits: Managing Chronic Pain with Expert Care

Chronic pain -Diagnosis written on a white piece of paper. Treatment and prevention of disease. Syringe and vaccine with drugs. Medical and Healthcare concept. Selective  focus

Unfortunately, chronic pain is a harsh reality for many people. Chronic pain results from a wide range of issues such as arthritis, surgery, trauma, inflammatory diseases, medical conditions, and stroke.

It can present anywhere in the body, including severe lower back pain and severe neck pain amongst other locations.

Major improvements have been made in acute pain management, however, some people develop chronic pain states wherein they experience symptoms that seem unlikely to be cured. For such cases, the clinical management should be focused on controlling the pain effectively, maintaining physical activity (within limits), and encouraging routine daily function.

This is done in order to prevent deterioration and to avoid any complication arising from inactivity.

This may appear to sound counterintuitive, because we naturally assume that moving or doing any activity will worsen the pain, however, more often than not, pain doesn’t behave like this and therefore there is no logical reason to avoid activity altogether.

Our Approach to Chronic Pain Management

At DC Physiotherapy Clondalkin and Lucan, we’re highly experienced in treating people with Sciatica. The vast majority of Sciatic nerve pain cases are treated conservatively. Exercise rehabilitation from a Chartered Physiotherapist has been proven to play a key role in Sciatica treatment.

We aim to prevent further episodes of Sciatic pain through education and address any muscle imbalances in the core muscles.

At DC Physiotherapy Clondalkin Dublin, we’re experts in treating Sciatica. It’s a common condition, however, it needs specific treatment interventions for the best possible outcome.

Non-surgical spinal decompression: this is a form of conservative treatment for Sciatica. This system is able to treat mild to moderate herniated spinal discs which involves the usage of our non-surgical spinal decompression systems, followed by a core-strengthening rehabilitation combined with Physiotherapy. Advanced cases of herniated spinal discs are treated effectively with Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression, in conjunction with core stabilization and Physiotherapy. Find out more at

While acute pain (due to a recent injury) requires complete cessation of any activity, these rules don’t apply to any form of chronic pain. If the pain is present with or without activity and it has been established medically that the pain is not going to subside, then the best course of action is to make the best of the situation. This can be difficult for chronic pain sufferers, andbehavioural modification therapies are often required to break the psychological link between movement and pain.


Coming to terms with the reality of chronic pain can be difficult. Clinicians involved in treating chronic pain must have sufficient experience in managing such situations by communicating effectively with the patient, providing them with credible guidance and advice. Clinicians also need to motivate their patients to improve functionality within their limits and recognise boundaries and limitations.


Chronic pain management often employs treatment options like joint manipulation, mobilizing, and stretching to help provide temporary comfort. Although this is not a permanent solution, it can help to control the condition by reducing pain and providing more functionality. Each case must be analysed and treated as an individual and unique case.

The goal is to provide sufficient self-directed help with periodic physiotherapy intervention that is minimal yet sufficient enough to keep overall symptoms stable. Usually, providing extensive treatments for chronic pain has little to no advantage, especially if the intention is to completely cure the condition. These issues must be recognised and discussed by every clinician involved in the care process.

I've been with DC physio for the past few mths and I'm extremely impressed with their professionalism and the willing to help and listen to their patients, unlike most of the Health professions in this country ! When i went to them i couldn't drive or walk properly and was out of work due to a bulging disc (bearing in mind i work in a Hospital and couldnt even get physio there ) but the lads put me back together and im now on the road to recovery 😊. I've also referred some of my friends ! With sincere thanks lads 🙂read more

Same day appointment. Enda provided a 'most likely' diagnosis which seems to have been accurate. He gave detailed advice on managing the pain and how to move around, all of which has worked out as he advised. A short laser treatment and some massage was given. Good service. I got what I paid more

Highly recommended. I went there late January of this year with severe lower back pain. I met with Jamie who took a detailed history, he examined my back movements (which were non-existent at the time). I started non-surgical spinal decompression, and over the next couple of weeks I noticed a huge difference, not only pain wise, but that I was standing up straight again and not holding onto the wall for support. Jamie has given me daily exercises to help improve my core strength in order to protect my back. I'd highly recommend anyone suffering with pain to contact them. I willl definitely keep their number in my contact list!!Thank you Jamie and colleagues for all your hard work.Extremely professional, caring and more

I can’t recommend the spinal decompression at DC Physiotherapy enough. I can’t believe the improvement I’ve had from it.I had been in absolute agony with nerve pain and numerous visits with consultants and MRI’s taken showed a lot of damage and disc and nerve trouble and they were recommending surgery.I luckily came across an article about this and researched it and have been going to Jaime who was great at not pushing too hard with it at first and building it up and it’s improved so much and i havnt suffered with the awful nerve pain since. It’s improved my quality of life after just 4 sessions so i will continue the more
