I feel I’ve got my life back

5 50 Chiropractor Consultation

May I start by saying for the first time in almost a year I am totally free from debilitating back pain. This is not because of medication or surgery it is all thanks to Dr Michael Clifford, Haven Pain relief centre.

On attending his office I was unable to walk straight with excruciating pain in my back and down my leg. I was greeted by Catherine, Dr Clifford's secretary, If you ever felt so low that you just needed a kind word or a simple meaningful smile, then Catherine ticks all the boxes. Immediately welcomed me put me at ease offering Tea, coffee, water. She has this lovely way of making you feel comfortable, while you wait for your appointment. I knew I was in the right place.

I then had the pleasure of meeting Dr Michael Clifford. He’s a kind caring softly spoken gentleman and totally put me at ease. I explained my area of concern and gave a brief history of how I got to this point. For the first time I felt I was being heard, Dr Clifford was interested in me as a person not just in my pain. We discussed diet, stress levels, lifestyle. A totally different approach from any other appointments I had attended. Dr Clifford treats the whole person not just the area of pain. It’s almost like a holistic approach. This level of approach is something I had not experienced before, I had been to different Physiotherapist, different doctors offering medication that I didn’t want to take I just knew there must be a safer way to get better than Pills. I brought copies of my MRI images with me and Dr Clifford discussed them with me and set about a course of treatments that would suit my injury and my overall well being.

My first treatment was comfortable non-invasive and painless. I could feel the pain leave my body. After the treatment, I could walk straight without pain. I felt like I had gained an inch in height my back was straight again for the first time in a year.

I only wished I had gone to Dr Clifford first day I could have saved myself all this pain and the disruption to my life. On days the pain and stiffness in my body were so bad I was unable to walk. Just after one treatment from Dr Clifford I was able to walk out of his office get into my car without pain.

I returned two days later for another treatment, delighted to confirm that I had stayed pain-free and felt really well. I am so thrilled with my results I have signed up for more treatments to get my body back to full health and will continue to attend occasionally for maintenance once my treatments are finished. I don’t ever want to feel that bad in my life again. I am so looking forward to booking a holiday knowing that I can now start enjoying my life again.

If anyone reading this review is in pain if I could give one word of advice pick up the phone speak with Catherine, and make an appointment to meet with Dr Clifford. You have nothing to lose but the pain. I am totally indebted to you Dr Clifford. I feel I’ve got my life back. Thank you.

All the staff have always treated me with great professionalism

5 50 Chiropractor Consultation

I first went to Haven chiropractic after a serious car accident. I had several herniated discs and struggled to walk let alone train in martial arts, which I love! Dr Michael Clifford had me back on my feet and back training in a few short weeks, that was nearly 3 years ago and I have been going back since for maintenance, all the staff have always treated me with great professionalism, including another great guy, Dr Orlando. I have to rate this clinic very highly to anyone in pain. Thanks to all at haven chiropractic in Douglas, Cork.

Instant relief from adjustments

5 50 Chiropractor Consultation • Paid: €40

Almost 6 years ago I first met Dr Michael Clifford. I was a young mother, I had extreme pain in my lower back and I was experiencing my right leg going numb. I was very nervous about attending a chiropractor as I did not know alot about it. But as a last resort I was willing to try it. At the beginning I attended Dr.Clifford twice a week, then the appointments spread out. I now attend once a month for an adjustment. Along with my monthly adjustment, and gentle exercise I now live a very happy, pain free life. I also had another baby, I always wanted another baby but i did not think it was possible considering the pain i was in, but it was possible. I received gentle chiropractic treatment throughout my pregnancy, i also returned for another adjustment 3 days after i delivered my 2nd son, which instantly relieved the intense back and neck pain i was experiencing. I even brought my 3 day old son for a once off, very gentle adjustment after a traumatic delivery. We have since moved house and it takes one hour by car to visit Dr Clifford for my adjustment but it is worth it. He is not just a chiropractor any longer,he has become a friend, besides the instant relief i feel from adjustments , he also gives great advice, and always listens. He is an angel in disguise, as funny as that sounds,i believe it to be true.

On arrival to the clinic i am always welcomed with a friendly face, and a smile. I instantly feel relaxed, the waiting room is spacious, clean, warm, comfortable and soothing.The receptionists are like family and always so facilitating and supportive. I am always offered a tea or coffee. My adjustment usually only takes 10/15mins. There have been times, especially during my pregnancy that i woke up in pain and had to see Dr Clifford that day, it was never a problem and i am always told come straight in and we will look after you, somehow they will arrange to fit me in, eventhough they are busy.That means so much to me and i really appreciate it"

I couldn't believe how quickly I recovered

5 50 Back Pain Treatment

I have been attending Dr.Michael for the last 5 years. On entering the clinic I was taken aback at how beautiful and homely it was.There were beautiful plants around the waiting room, a beautiful television on the wall with scenes of humming birds, tea and coffee were provided on a beautiful marble table by the wonderful friendly and helpful staff at the front desk. The atmosphere was like going into a Starbucks and meeting friends. I have never been to a that had such a warm and friendly feeling to it.
When I saw Dr.Michael he was wonderful, and extremely professional. He really listened to me , gave me a full examination and identified my problem areas. He referred me for x-rays and discovered that my problem was so severe I would need surgery. I had the surgery and it resolved my neck problem., My surgeon recommended I continue to see Dr. Michael for post surgery rehab. Using laser, ultrasound, and instrument adjusting i recovered so quickly I couldn't believe it! He also decompressed my lower back discs which had been causing me problems for many years.

My experience was a whole different world away from anything i have ever had in any other medical enviroment. I would recommend anybody with complex health problems or chronic pain to take the time to visit this amazing clinic and the wonderful Dr. Michael at Haven.

I found a massive improvement in my health from day one

5 50 Chiropractor Consultation • Paid: €40

i first met Michael 5 years ago. He was recommended to me by a friend. I had previously been attending physiotherapists and osteopaths and while these were helping me I felt the effect were short term. From the initial meeting I found Michael to be a great listener and genuinely interested. I found a massive improvement in my health from day one and continue to feel better. I attend the practice now on a maintenence plan and feel stronger all the time.

From the minute you walk into the practice there is a sense of calm and wellness which is always welcome when you are not feeling well. the staff have always been polite and considerate. A pleasure to deal with from day 1 and would recommend highly.

Each time I leave I find my neck movements are much freer

5 50 Chiropractor Consultation

I came to the clinic with aching and stiffness in the neck. I was xrayed and diagnosed with anterior projection and have been coming for years to alleviate the pain. I find the symptoms and discomfort are greatly reduced after treatment. It is such a calming and peaceful environment with a very friendly atmosphere.

I find Dr. Clifford very competent and reassuring. He always seems to know just what I need to get rid of the discomfort. I can also get a massage specific to my needs at the clinic. The clinic takes a holistic attitude to treatment and space is given to really listen to each patient to discover the best kind of treatment needed. Each time I leave I find my neck movements are much freer which has made a huge difference to my life. I recommend this clinic highly.

Would recommend to everyone

5 50 Ultrasound Therapy, Chiropractor Consultation, Chiropractor Consultation • Paid: €45

Chiropractor Consultation, Chiropractic, Ultrasound Therapy

I have been coming to Haven Chiropractic for several years now and have always had a great experience. I always feel great after being treated. Dr. Clifford has so many options to treat a person, from cold laser to decompression, to Ultrasound and muscle stim. Great staff and experienced American trained Doctor who always seems to know exactly what I need. Would recommend Haven to everyone who needs help with pain and even just to keep well and healthy. It;s not always easy to find a good match when it comes to doctors. But having a doctor you can really trust makes all the difference. and a doctor that will listen to you is fantastic.

It's something very different than your average doctors office

5 50 Chiropractor Consultation • Paid: €45

My 12 year old daughter was having pain and restricted movement in her hip. After waiting almost a year for an appointment with a specialist I started looking for alternative solutions, because we just could not wait any longer. I came across Dr Clifford at Haven Pain Relief Centre in Douglas Cork, and made an appointment for Alannah. Within that 30 Min appointment the doctor told us more about what was happening than we were told in the previous months of going to the GP, who had mentioned the possibility of needing surgery which was very upsetting to think of for a twelve year old. Doctor Clifford explained that although he had various ways to treat our daughter, but we should start with very gentle soft tissue therapy and work toward realigning her hip with adjustments until her hip and pelvis became more stable, he thought because of her age she would respond quickly, and as it happened that's exactly what happened.
Alannah attended for treatment twice a week with Dr. Clifford for four weeks and was able to get back to her Tae Kwondo training, She got her Red belt recently, and we were so proud of her.. She actually asked could she continue with adjustments and the treatments at Haven because she feels they are improving her training so much.

The Haven Pain Relief Centre is a model of what all medical services should be. We were listened to, understood and kept informed of what exactly was going on with our daughter. The place is beautiful and relaxing and made us feel at home straight away. It's something very different than your average doctors office. But for us the most important thing was that we had a very experienced doctor from America who knew in minutes of examining our daughter what was wrong with her, and what treatment would work well for her and also, how long it would take and what we could expect. I can't say enough really! I have told all my friends and family to go to Haven and just get checked. Even if you think you can't get help, you will at least know exactly what your options are and that meant the world to us.

Now a lot more comfortable carrying out my daily work duties

4.5 50 Chiropractor Consultation, Back Pain Treatment

Having put up with neck an shoulder problems from an old injury and having tried some other treatments I saw a stand by Haven at the Wilton Shopping centre. From what I saw I decided it could be of help to me. Haven sent me to the Consultants Private at the Regional for an x-ray report. Haven showed me the report and pointed out exactly what was wrong. Haven put me on a course of Chiropractic treatment. I have found the treatment very beneficial and also notice that my general health and well being are much improved. I am now a lot more comfortable carrying out my daily work duties and activities.

I found the whole experience of Chiropractic treatment very informative. The facilities at Haven are excellent. The practitioner and receptionists are pleasant and they were able to arrange appointments to suit my working arrangements.
