Dara Tyrell, DC

Many Chiropractors have a deeply personal experience which leads them to discover Chiropractic as a career.

At the age of two years old, Dara developed a very rare and potentially fatal disease which meant she had too many white blood cells which attacked her bones, including her spine, requiring drastic medical intervention to save her life. Swimming, ballet and horse riding were recommended to help prevent a scoliosis from developing.

Eternally thankful

At the age of twelve Dara was taken to a Chiropractor for the very first time, suffering from pain due to a pathological fracture in her spine. It was this Chiropractor, to whom she remains eternally thankful, who inspired her to trust in the healing power of the body. In fact Dara was so inspired by her experience with Marie McElhinney that it became her life’s goal to become a Chiropractor herself.

It was at the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic that Dara deepened her love for the philosophy, art and science of Chiropractic and then went on to spend time with some of the most influential Doctors of Chiropractic in the UK, Ireland and Spain and at the Royal Glamorgan Hospital with the Orthopaedic team.

Dara’s bright and playful nature hides an extremely knowledgeable and dedicated practitioner who is at home with people from all walks of life. Over time Dara has developed a special interest in Pregnancy and Chiropractic Paediatrics but enjoys working with anyone whose health goal is wellness and prevention of dis-ease.

The secret to true health

Chiropractic is much more than a back and neck pain solution. It is a Lifestyle which many enlightened people enjoy and is the third largest health care profession in the world, and rapidly growing, as people discover that the secret to true health is a fully functioning nervous system!

It does seem strange that Socrates who was born in 469 BC said “if you would have health look first to the spine” but his advice has mostly been ignored!

In her spare time Dara delights in the outdoors, especially horseriding and has been involved in Show Jumping, Dressage and Eventing, riding at National Level and working for an International Show Jumping Champion, travelling throughout Europe. In true Irish style she also loves some good old fashioned craic!
