‘The entire recovery path has so many aspects. James is in charge and you know, he has me here on the treatment table. Some of it is quite enjoyable.
‘Not much, but I know he’s doing well and do you think we’re making progress? A lot of! That shows how bad I was in the first place.
But the treatment table and its magic hands are very important. ‘
At the end of the short video, Eamonn was seen wearing compression stockings, which promote circulation to nourish nerve endings in his legs.
“To end the day or the session, I put on my socks!” he shared. ‘These are pressure socks, don’t worry, I’m perfectly safe in them.
“These are used by many elite athletes to aid the healing process … In the meantime, it’s so comfortable that I think I’ll only do 45 minutes and maybe fall asleep.”

Last month, Eamonn shared how circulation boosters helped him “ get back out ” in daily activities.
According to The sun, Eamonn said of the treatment, “I had some trouble waking up before and after double hip surgery.”
In addition to using the circulation booster, Eamonn has relieved his pain with physical therapy and ice-cold showers, which left him feeling ‘invigorated’ in the midst of his health problems.
Eamonn first spoke about his dislocated pelvis in March and recently had an MRI scan to get further tests after he left chronic pain.

Recently, Eamonn explained how a dislocated pelvis started his chronic health struggle while waiting for the results of an MRI scan because his pain has escalated.
He joked in an interview with the Irish Independent that his injury is “not nearly as erotic as it sounds.”
He told the publication, ‘I’ve mysteriously dislocated my pelvis and I don’t know how – it’s not as erotic as it sounds. My back is out of alignment as a result. ‘
The Belfast resident went on to say that since he talked about his debilitating pain on social media, he found it ‘absolutely terrifying’ about the number of people also living with chronic pain.
“Nobody knows what it is like unless they live with someone who has it.” he said. ‘I am in tremendous pain and nobody knows how to stop it.
‘This hurts a lot and I have to find a way to overcome it. It’s been a month and I feel like I can’t remember what life was like without the pain. ‘
