Neck and Back Pain and Sports Injuries
“As a high achiever I used to represent Ireland in hill running. In 1987 I fell heavily while running down a mountain. As a result I have experienced pain in my ankle, knee, back and neck ever since. Over the last ten years I have experienced good, bad and outright dreadful chiropractic treatments. Ros is the BEST by a long shot. She knows the physiology of the body very well, and is very gentle with her treatments. She also works herself out of a job. I first visited her for a course of treatments in 2007. When I revisited her recently I found that it had been a whole year since I had last needed treatment. Some of the positive outcomes have been not just freedom from pain in my knee, ankle and neck, but also I have been able to stop taking the allergy pills I had been on for 10 years, and have noticed a significant increase in my energy levels. I have recommended Ros to many friends and colleagues and will continue to do so without hesitation. My wife got thrown from horses a number of times as a teenager. Periodically she used to have to spend days resting her back. She was very nervous about visiting a chiropractor as she had some bad experiences in the past. Eventually the pain, and my reassurance that Ros knows what she's doing and is very gentle, persuaded her to go to Ros. Since her course of treatment she has consistently maintained her mobility. My 8 year old daughter had a heavy fall recently and was complaining of pain while running. Ros determined that she had twisted her hips. After just a single treatment there was no pain and no stopping her!”

Neck and Back Pain and Sacro-iliac Joint Pain
“I have no hesitation in recommending Dr Ros Drake to you if you have back pain or an injury, recent or old that is giving you pain or discomfort. I have had chiropractic treatment in the UK for many years and I was delighted to find Ros when I moved to Dublin. She is knowledgeable and caring and gets great results. Ros also works with pregnant Mums and babies and is an expert in this field. I would recommend you to get a back check to make sure you are in good shape.”

Back Pain
“I attended the services of Drake Chiropractic over the past 3 weeks – I have to say that I am delighted with the result. My back has been sore for the past 6 months and although not life threatening, it was quite uncomfortable when I was driving, sitting at home and most importantly playing golf. Ros is not only the best looking chiropractor in Ireland but she is also very good at her job. I must say that I didn’t know what to expect when going to a chiropractor but Ros’ professionalism quickly put me at my ease. She carefully listened to my complaints and asked questions and as a result she quickly made her diagnosis. She then explained what she was going to do and why. After a few manipulations and a good few cracking sounds it was all done. She gave me some exercises and I was on my way. It really took to the second day after the treatment before I noticed the difference. Not only had the pain gone but I felt much more flexible when in the gym. But the biggest benefit has been to my golf game – I played the best golf I have ever played the weekend after my treatment. I put that down to squarely to Ros’ treatment.
I had in all 3 sessions with her and feel so much better than before and would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone I hear that has any back pain. Well done Ros and best of luck with developing your practice”

Neck and Thoracic Pain
“Dear Ros
As you know I had reason over the past few months to visit you on a number of occasions in relation to the pain that I had been experiencing across my shoulder blades and in my neck. I have to express that at every visit I found you delivered an extremely professional service. You were knowledgeable in the subject matter and could articulate that into detail that was easily understood by me as to what could be wrong physically and the methods to speed my recovery.
I also found the exercise sheet that was specific to my problem very useful and it enabled me to speed up my rehabilitation separately to visiting your practice.
I would recommend your service to anyone who is experiencing back pains or general pains either muscular or within their joints. I will also be visiting in advance of my next ski trip as I found that this pro-active exercise ensured I had no stiffness in my shoulders at all over my ski holiday”

Child’s Injury – Groin Strain, Hamstring Tightness and Back and Neck Injury

Ross Canning (aged 15 at the time) and going through a rapid growth spurt combined with an intense hockey season experienced a series of injuries: including groin strain, hamstring tightness, back and neck stiffness.  Orthotics helped somewhat but after being picked for the Irish U16 Hockey Team there was an increase in his training schedule and his injuries continued to reoccur.  We tried several sessions with Physiotherapy and whilst this helped it was not the solution to these niggling injuries.

After a consultation and treatment from Ros Drake he immediately felt better and started to run more freely, he continued a series of treatments and has recovered completely.  He has subsequently played for Three Rock Rovers 1st XI getting to the Irish Senior Cup Semi finals- he was on the TRR Indoor side who were Irish Champions and subsequently represented Ireland in the European Club Championships. This year (July 2010) he played for the Irish U16 in the European Championships in Barcelona. Through this intense amount of hockey he has remained injury free. The most significant part of this is that he now recognises when his back is out and immediately goes to Ros who puts him straight.

We have never looked back since Ros starting treating Ross and have recommended here to other parents of children who suffer from strains etc.

Good Luck with the practice and Thank you

The Canning Family, Co Dublin (Ross – Hockey Player)
