Testimonials


Ailish Walsh, Navan, Co. Meath
I was referred by my doctor to Stephen for lower back pain following a work-related incident, for which various physiotherapy attempts had failed to produce results. Stephen zeroed in on the problem and was able to fully address it in a matter of weeks. His flexibility and willingness to do late evenings has made a huge difference to my ability to maintain a treatment schedule.

Patrick Kavanagh, Bohermeen, Navan, Co. Meath
I first met Stephen in Navan shopping centre where he was offering free consultations. He could see my problem before I even explained it to him, because of the way I was standing. I’ve suffered from pain for years and had never got any relief until I met Stephen. I cannot tell you how much he has helped me and I can’t thank him enough.

Laura Clarke, Co. Meath
I saw Stephen a few months back for a back and neck pain I’d had since giving birth. He has helped me so much and I am so grateful! Thanks Stephen, and keep up the good work.

Kathleen Wilde, Dunsany, Co. Meath
I first met Stephen when he spoke to us all at our active retirement meeting, and I knew I could put my trust in him. I’ve seen him on and off now for the past 2 years, and he has helped me continue to walk pain-free. I suffer from arthritis and as Stephen explained it won’t go away, but he has made it easier to get around. Thank you Stephen for all your help.

Marie Hennessy, Navan, Co. Meath
I had so much neck and shoulder pain that it was really affecting my work. Massage and physio weren’t helping. After a few sessions with Stephen and from following his advice I began to improve gradually. Now I’m pain-free for the first time in years. You should definitely go see Stephen if you want a proper job done!

Kim Anderson, Navan, Co. Meath

Amongst the myriad of osteopaths and physiotherapists I have visited over the years, I have never felt more confident than when visiting Stephen McDermott for my back pain. Stephen really has helped me get back into improving my fitness levels which I couldn’t do due to back pain. Simple as this, if you’ve pain then go see Stephen.

I’ve suffered with pain both in my lower back and between my shoulder blades for years, and Stephen really has helped me feel a lot better. I’m able to work better now and run easier. He explained everything in great detail and I would recommend him to anyone.

Katie Fanning, Ardee, Co Louth
Thank you Stephen for helping us with our 4-month-old son. Jack had feeding issues since he was born and suffered from colic, we were really getting worried and didn’t want to give Jack any more medication. Stephen was very gentle with him and assured us it would settle after a few treatments. Thanks Stephen for your help.

Julia Fitzpatrick (mother of three), Dunshaughlin, Co Meath
My family and I have been regularly attending the bepainfree.ie clinic for over 2 years now and it never ceases to amaze me how professional, kind and accommodating Stephen is. We’ve seen him for pregnancy-related issues, post-partum check-ups for my babies and me, back and neck problems, developmental problems, sports injuries, plantar fasciitis and even ear infections (adults and kids), and in each case, the effect of the treatment was excellent. I cannot recommend this clinic enough.

Jenny Sheridan, Bailiboro, Co Cavan
My back problems started after the birth of my daughter in 2011. They came to a head in January 2013 when I woke one morning to find that I could hardly move. I consulted my doctor who told me I had sciatica. He prescribed me some painkillers and signed me off work for two weeks. The pain got worse and nothing I tried – heat treatment, painkillers etc. seemed to help. I went back to my doctor and he began to suspect that it was a disc problem and he arranged for me to see an orthopaedic consultant. They told me that I may have to have surgery to sort the problem out. I had a friend who was an aromatherapist, so I rang her to ask if she could give me a massage. She suggested that I consult an osteopath, and recommended Stephen McDermott. Stephen confirmed that it was disc trouble and began treating me. A few weeks later I saw the consultant. Stephen had given me a letter stating his diagnosis and treatment. The consultant agreed with Stephen’s diagnosis and said that it was one of the most accurate diagnoses that he had ever seen. He told me that my osteopath was doing an excellent job and had avoided the need for surgery. Four years on, I still see Stephen on a regular basis and have all my discs intact. Thank you Stephen.

Val Rogers, Clonee, Co Meath

I have lived with pain since the age of thirteen from a bike accident. Now at the age of sixty-nine, I look back upon my search for relief. Many days have been spent in despair, time wasted, trying to find relief from the pain. Hesitant to undergo surgery I began my long search for care with different chiropractors and neurosurgeons. The time and money spent in the quest for relief would amount to a small fortune, not to mention my diminished quality of life. Thanks to Stephen McDermott, I am now finding more complete and long-lasting relief from my pain. Stephen’s treatment approach has been life changing. I can only sing the highest praise, and hope he does the same for you.

Kieran Masters, Boyne Rd, Navan, Co. Meath
I have had awful daily headaches for years following a trauma suffered during a GAA match. Stephen was able to reduce them to weekly after a few treatments and now after three months they have gone completely. Excellent job Stephen !

Peggy Doyle, Johnstown, Navan, Co. Meath

Stephen saved me from having an operation on my bad hip and I follow his advice and do my exercises daily, the pain has gone and I don’t need an operation.

John Duggan, Mullingar, Co. Weatmeath
My wife recommended Stephen to help with my recurring knee pain which stopped me playing golf. Honestly I was unsure about Osteopath at the start but after a few treatments my mind was changed by Stephen. I’m back playing golf and playing as well as ever.
