The Doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patient
in the Care of the Human Frame, in Diet and in the cause and prevention of disease.

After working for 15 years in audit/accountancy for a multinational company, I retrained first in Chiropractic and then in many other areas of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, such as Acupuncture, Graston Technique etc. This change in my career was born out of a firm belief in the efficacy of Alternative/Complementary medicine and the process of gently assisting the body to heal itself rather than routinely using force.
I had a desire to receive more from my work life than just financial benefits and I succeeded. I get tremendous fulfilment and job satisfaction from contributing to my patient’s relief from pain, health improvement and enhancement.
Over last 20 years I have gained quite a lot practical experience in the Chiropractic and Acupuncture field and I am delighted that my patients can greatly benefit from it. I apply holistic approach and I treat each case very individually.
I never stop investing in my personal development and I am constantly searching for new treatment modalities and techniques which makes my work even more effective.
Some of my qualifications:
- Trained and qualified in McTimoney and McTimoney-Corley chiropractic colleges 1994-1999
- Obtained Degree in Chiropractic from Oxford Brookes University 1999
- Awarded Fellowship of the Royal College of Chiropractors in 2006
- Diploma in Acupuncture 2003
- Registered and member of the ACI (Acupuncture Council of Ireland) and TCMCI (Traditional Chinese Medicine Council of Ireland).
“As a marathon runner and former winner of the Connemara International Marathon, I have experienced plenty of sports injuries and back problems. Over last 10 years, I have received regular treatments from Joe at his ACU Chiropractic Clinic, both for back and sport-related injuries.I found the treatments by Joe extremely effective and gentle also. The treatments have consistently and positively assisted my running performance.”

My Patients range from the very young to the very old, from very active to inactive. Treatments are tailored to suit each individual person. Some have a specific problem, others come for check-ups to prevent problems arising or worsening or simply for general maintenance.
EXAMINATION AND TREATMENT
The examination and treatment is a thorough holistic, head to toe, analysis, testing and treatment. I use gentle manipulation via manual techniques and chiropractic adjusting equipment, (low force, fast and specific) is combined with soft tissue techniques such as Graston Technique. For knee, shoulder pain combining with acupuncture is usually effective.
There is absolutely no cracking or crunches involved. The target is to resolve the problem as quickly as possible and there is no pressure to keep returning.
