You’ll be glad to know I finished the Dublin City Marathon (2012) on Monday last injury free in a respectable time of 3:19 so I just want to say many thanks for your support in keeping me injury free throughout the year.
Fintan Kennedy: Chronic Low Back Pain
Stephen at the Lawlor Clinic brought four years of debilitating back pain to an end through a combination of hands on Physiotherapy and exercise, getting my body to work as it should. I am now four months pain free and medication free. I would highly recommend Stephen and the Lawlor Clinics professional services.
Brian Downes: EXCITEology
I saw Stephen to help me resolve some long standing injuries. I had worked with various physio’s, physical therapists and sports injury therapists on the same issues without success. Stephen gave a full assessment of the problem and provided me with a treatment plan and followed this up with a maintenance plan. The therapy was exceptional and the results excellent. It has made a massive difference to me. I would have no hesitation in recommending Stephen’s work

John: Chronic Low Back Pain
I have had chronic back pain for almost ten years. I was introduced to the Lawlor clinic by a good friend. Shane and Karen implement an open minded, client centred, positive and challenging approach in their treatment, in which avenues are explored and gains can be made. Above all, they are top class professionals. Thanks to them, I have a better understanding of my condition, and have some tools that I can use to control and manage it myself. My quality of life is considerably better as a result of the Lawlor Clinic. I would unequivocally recommend the Lawlor Clinic to anyone with an injury or chronic pain condition.
Anne Paul – 8 times Irish triathlon and duathlon champion.Hawaii Ironman finisher
For the past 3 years I had been struggling with a hip injury which was causing numbness and complete loss of power down my leg in races. Visits to medical consultants and various others resulted in no improvement and continued frustration.
In February I started attending Stephen Haslam from the Lawlor clinic. Using Active Release Techniques (ART) and addressing the biomechanical issues he managed to get me back on the road to recovery allowing me to win gold in my age category at the European duathlon championships at the end of April. We are still making progress and hopefully with continued strength work a full recovery will be possible. He has also treated several friends with different injuries and again they have been delighted with the outcome.
Padraig & Tadhg Harrington @ Harrington Golf:
When it comes to golf injuries in Ireland there are two people that you should seek advice from, Karen & Shane @ Lawlor Clinic. They are forward thinking individuals and have brought both the arts of TPI and ART together. They have done this in such a way that golfers in Ireland should be looking for their help and advice when it comes to golf specific health and injury treatment.
They are the leading medical experts in the game throughout Ireland and Harrington Golf would have no hesitation in recommending both of them to golfers at all levels of the game!
Lance Gill: Titleist Performance Institute
Shane & Karen @ Lawlor Clinic completed extensive training with the Titleist Performance Institute. This coupled with their expertise in Active Release Techniques allows them to offer the highest quality assessment and treatment of Golfers at all levels. This makes them among the best in the world at providing medical and performance based care for golfers and athletes of all disciplines.
I have no hesitation in referring golfers and athletes to their clinic as I have been a patient myself and seen the wonderful results to both my body and my golf game. They are second to none in helping a client to improve their golf health and performance.

Jo Sayers, NLP Trainer & Coach:
For years I had a recurring back problem which would leave me unable to walk for days at a time. After my first appointment with Shane I felt transformed, my experience was that he had ‘pressed all the buttons’ to release deeply trapped tension enabling my own innate balance and strength to return.
After a few sessions I was a new person and I have never experienced that ‘debilitating not being able to walk’ since! Shanes professionalism and client centred approach combined with ART Muscle Release Technique is a very powerful combination which really delivers change for his clients.
Thank you Shane!
Chrissie Fitzpatrick, Co Mayo:
I have been suffering with chronic pain following a car crash which has been diagnosed as Fibromyalgia and Plantar Fasciitis in both feet, I’ve been through the system of hospital checks and been to a chiropractor who helped relieve the whiplash and headaches and physiotherapy which helped get me mobile again but nothing touched the stiffness and pain in my lower back and left hip and the debilitating pain in my heels until my friend recommended Lawlor Clinic, Karen worked on the actual muscles, where I had been told I had soft tissue damage, on my first appointment and the change was profound from day one , she also has worked on my feet and slowly they are improving between the work done on them by Karen and following her advice on what to do at home.
After only 4 visits I find a remarkable change in my lower back and I am confident that with time I will be pain free. I am slowly getting back driving which I could not do as I could not sit and I’m hoping to return to work part time very soon. I cannot thank Karen enough and for the first time I feel optimistic that this does not have to be long term.
Laois Ladies GAA Player & 2011 All Star:
I was introduced to the Lawlor Clinic by a friend. I fractured the inside of my ankle and also tore ligaments on both sides.
It was at a crucial time of our playing calendar and my recovery needed to be minimum yet sensible due to where my fracture was. I found that along with accurate diagnoses, ART technique and rehab exercises my recovery period was reduced significantly allowing me to get back running and playing at a high level.
Their professionalism, reassurance, time management of every session and progression in rehab program is at a very high standard.
Not only was my ankle treated but major muscles around it that were restricted to movement were also worked on. I would recommend a consultation with Lawlor Clinic. You won’t be disappointed.
