According to the Chiropractic Association of Ireland (CAI): "For quality and safety only a member of the CAI should be consulted for chiropractic care."
Dr. Maureen McHugh is a member of the CAI; as such has had proper investigation into her education, legal, professional and social standings and is held to professional and ethical standards for the good of the people of Ireland as well as the profession.
The CAI insists on limiting its membership. Only graduates of accredited institutions having the highest level of educational standards are accepted into the process of membership application. The CAI serves as a means to maintain these professional and ethical standards; (also of note: providing the doctor is a member, many insurance carriers recognize these standards as a measure to qualify care for reimbursement to policy holders.)
Maureen McHugh is your neighbourhood chiropractor who serves Drumcondra and the surrounding communities in Dublin .
Dr. Maureen uses chiropractic care to improve the health and wellness in all areas of patient's lives, whether they are having problems with back pain or neck pain, or just want to start feeling better when they wake up in the morning. Dr. Maureen takes a "whole person" approach in chiropractic care, which means looking for the underlying causes of disease, discomfort, and pain, as opposed to treating just the symptoms. Many seemingly unrelated symptoms often arise from imbalances in the spinal column, and Dr. Maureen will be able to determine the root of the pain and create a personalized chiropractic and wellness plan to suit each patient's individual needs. Under the supervision and care of Dr. Maureen, our caring and skilled chiropractor, patients report higher functioning in all areas of their lives.
She is proud to say that she received her Doctorate from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa, the birthplace of chiropractic. In the U.S. she was certified by the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners, was Licensed and practiced in her home state of Michigan. She is a member of the Michigan Association of Chiropractors, the American Chiropractic Association, the International Chiropractic Association, the Chiropractic Association of Ireland and the Palmer College of Chiropractic Alumni Association. Prior to becoming a Chiropractor, she was a highly sought after as a massage Therapist; also maintaining profession association memberships throughout that career. Knowing she could do more, and caring as much as she does, she answered what she believed was her calling, went back to school and became a Doctor. She also holds a degree in Fine Arts.
Coming to Ireland was a dream she had since her teenage years after her Mother and Aunts spent time exploring Ireland and the family's history here. Once discovering that the people of Ireland were being so underserved by the chiropractic profession (there being just over 100 qualified Doctors of Chiropractic in the entire Republic,) she realized that to actually live her dream and practice here would not only allow her heart's desire of being of service to her fellow man, but would also fill a portion of that need for the people of Ireland.
She has a true passion for the power of chiropractic in health and wellness. She states that "It's not just about pain relief. Of course that's significant when you're suffering however; the function of your spine is my primary concern as a doctor, because it is the foundation of true wellness. If the nervous system is functioning at its' best, it means everything will function at its best - organs, tissues, immune system, hormones, digestion... Everything!"
