Meet Dr. Stuart Kelly

Years ago something happened to me that changed my life forever. I’ll never forget it as long as I live…

Dr. Stuart Kelly

In secondary school, football was my thing. I lived for it 24/7. In fact, I was good enough to have been called to one of the clubs in England. I was on top of the world. That is until one day I fell and injured my low back and neck badly. I remember the pain well, it was unbearable. With rest, medication from my medical doctor, and recommended physiotherapy my symptoms improved slightly. But I knew things still weren’t right. I started to get scared. Here I was, just a young guy, dreaming of being the next Ian Rush and I was walking around with this awful pain every day. Would I have to stay like this forever? Thankfully not…

My Introduction to Chiropractic Care

The physiotherapist who was treating me recommended giving this other doctor a try. I was skeptical at first, but I knew if I didn’t sort my problem out, I’d have to stop doing the things I loved and face the reality that things would probably get worse the older I got. I went along to see this doctor, who examined me thoroughly, explained what was wrong and then “adjusted” my spine. The adjustment didn’t hurt at all, it actually felt good. Within a couple of weeks I noticed a massive improvement and began working my way back to full fitness. Then things got really interesting…

I missed my chance at the clubs and, being 17, was unsure of what I wanted to do with my life. Then, for some reason, I had this massive interest in what the doctor who helped me was doing. He was doing what was, at that time, a new profession in Ireland called “Chiropractic.” I’d had such unbelievable results that I had to know what he was doing.

Six months later I was in Bournemouth, England starting a 5 year full time course to become a doctor of chiropractic, and that’s how it happened! After another 5 years working in the UK with various patients from all walks of life including professional football clubs and international rock bands, I decided to return home to practice in Ireland. Today with two offices, and a team of experienced practitioners and staff, we strive to help Dundalk and Swords chiropractic patients get well and stay well!

On a Personal Note…

Outside of work I am a sports fanatic! I play football for Balrothery FC three times a week and the occasional game of golf when I get a chance. Having being living in the UK for so long its great to be back in my local community immersed in Irish sporting and social culture again.

As I explain to all my patients modern lifestyles can be stressful. Long term stress on our nervous systems can cause disease and ill-health that lead to many of the problems that present to our clinics, so its vital we maintain a lifestyle that counteract these stresses as much as possible. Personally I have a chiropractic adjustment at least once a month, exercise regularly, maintain a well balanced diet with plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables and managing my stress levels by making time for activities that I enjoy i.e playing sports, reading books, watching movies and socializing with friends.
