Patients

I was referred to Dr. McNally for evaluation and treatment of pain due to patellofemoral syndrome that was refactory to several rounds of physical therapy and three arthroscopies. Her approach has been more comprehensive, holistic & preventive than that of any other clinician I have seen, as she has focused on areas outside of the knee (foot, ankle, hip) that have been contributing to, and in some cases causing my knee pain. In addition to focused treatments, I have worked with her personal trainer in her practice who has not only developed a personalized corrective exercise routine, but has taken the time to ensure that my technique is correct. I am happy to say that due to Dr. McNally's care & expertise, my symptoms have greatly improved and I have been able to return to work without restriction. Dr. McNally's outstanding clinical skills as well as her professional, caring and encouraging demeanor make her a special and unique clinician. Her approach is simple, but effective - educate the patient about his/her ailment and empower the patient to be an active participant to his/her treatment. Her practice is efficient and her staff is always courteous and welcoming.

When I first came to see Dr McNally, I was in bad shape. After running the Boston Marathon for a second time, I had developed a chronic popping in my left knee. It was so bad, that I was worried I'd never be able to run long distances ever again. On top of that, I had developed chronic pain in my lower back that was keeping me awake for nights on end. 

From the moment I walked through the door, Dr McNally's energy, optimism and can-do spirit started my healing process. In just my first session, she diagnosed that I had a spondylolisthesis in my lower spine, I had a weak psoas muscle in my core, and that I was over-training the wrong muscles and under-training the muscles I needed for running.

She gave me a few simple exercises to do daily and talked me through what exercises were over-developing my quadriceps and hip flexers which were causing my knee popping. It wasn't easy adapting my gym routine, but I stuck to it (supported by her positivity and energy). Within two to three weeks, my knee popping subsided, and a few weeks after that, my back pain was gone for good.

I still do the exercises she gave me every day. They are so simple that I sometimes think that they couldn't have possibly brought this change in my life, but I have the evidence to prove it. I've dropped 90 seconds from my mile pace for my long runs, I walk taller, feel better, sleep like a baby, and this April, I'll be taking on the Boston Marathon again. This time, with Dr McNally's help, I'll definitely feel like a winner!

After several years of physical therapy for a piriformis syndrome diagnosis and a minimal amount of relief, I was concerned that I was going to have to live with the condition for the rest of my life.  I researched Sports Chiropractors and luckily I contacted Dr. Ellen McNally at the Chiropractic Performance Center.  From the first visit I have made steady improvement through her treatments and coordination with the rest of my team -- my physical trainer and massage therapist.  I finally feel that this condition will not be a life-long malady; I look forward to being pain free, thanks to the coordination, communication, and focused therapy of my team.”

Dr. McNally offers more than the typical chiropractor in that she is certified in, and uses soft tissue approaches like ART - Active Release Technique, Graston Technique and Kinesiotaping. I can personally vouch for the effectiveness of these approaches as she has treated me on numerous occasions with excellent results. Of course she performs traditional chiropractic adjustments as well. I find the combination of soft tissue approaches and traditional chiropractic care to be extremely beneficial to individuals with musculoskeletal pain. I am happy to recommend her services to patients, family & friends!

After struggling with a nagging calf injury for over a year, I finally over came it with Dr. McNally's help. Her skill, techniques and aftercare advice are invaluable, and work wonderfully in a wholistic approach, along with other modalities, such as acupuncture and craniosacral therapy. I've referred many of my clients, with confidence, to Dr. McNally, and I'm always pleased at how much deeper and quicker their own healing experience is afterwards.

After trying several chiropractors, to no avail, Dr. Ellen McNally has helped me find relief from my back pain. From the initial visit to my discharge, Dr. McNally had always taken her time with me to figure out the best way to give me releif from my back pain. Not only did she manipulate my spine but she also did ART (active Release Technique) which I have found to be a key element that has enabled me to feel better. Dr. Mcnally worked along with my physical therapist to help me achieve my pain free goal. I cannot thank her enough. I would highly recommend her to all of my family and friends.

Dr. Ellen McNally successfully treated my foot, ankle, back & shoulder pain with her "golden hands". I had planned to retire early due to chronic pain but thanks to Dr. McNally I've extended my practice 5-10 years.

I have been going to chiropractors for many years off and on. I can tell you I have never experienced significant improvement until working with you. Your Active Release Technique is terrific. My range of motion is much better, my muscle are not as tight as they have been for years, I am feeling far fewer instances of numbness is my hands and arms and the recurrent knotts in my neck have melted away. I always knew I was tight but had no idea how tight until working with you. Thank you so much for helping my body go toward its natural state of flexibility and pain free.

I have been to many doctors and many chiropractors and I always had pain. I was tired of always having pain so one day I called Dr. McNally after a friend recommended her. I came to Dr. McNally with severe neck and shoulder pain, TMJ and ear pain. She has been treating once every 2 weeks for about a year, this with physical therapy has allowed me to continue to get closer to being pain free. The methods of treatment that she uses involves the joints and muscles, it's truly a procedure I have not experienced with any other doctors.

I feel 100 times better and have a better disposition of life because I don't have the shoulder and neck pain. I'm truly thankful to Dr. McNally and her techniques, I truly found a doctor for life!

Dr. McNally's quality of touch is amazing. Her ability to feel into and release restricted tissue goes way beyond her training, experience and delightful personality. Her skills are superb and the results are fantastic.

I began seeing Dr. Ellen McNally in November of 2009. I had an auto accident in 1993 that resulted in an L5 disc herniation. In 1995 I had back surgery. The surgery helped some, but I was not totally out of pain. As a personal trainer and massage therapist I always had to be aware of my limitations. After my first visit with Dr. McNally I had been out of pain and in December of 2009 I began running, something I always wanted to do but was not able to. I am so thankful!

I have been to chiropractors in the past but none are as thorough as Dr. McNally. She took the time to listen to what has been bothering me for about 6 months. I had pain in my neck that traveled all the way down to my wrist. Since starting with Dr. McNally the pain has finally started to go away. She isn't the typical chiropractor that just cracks your neck. She also stretches the muscles and joints out. I would highly recommend anyone that is experiencing pain to give Dr. McNally a try.  You won't be disapponted. I have to also thank the Acushnet Company for providing such reputable services on site. Thanks for your help!
