With more than 4 out of 10 adults currently living in pain we are keen to help reduce peoples suffering and get them back on their feet.

Research shows Low Back Pain is ranked as the number 1 condition worldwide for years lost to disability.  The Chief Medical Officer has also found that 25% of people living with pain will lose their job as well as suffer from significant mental health issues.

At Holywood Private Clinic we have developed a Consultant delivered service which will assess and Manage your pain no matter what form it takes. During your initial consultation our specialist, Dr. Nathan Oliver, will see and assess patients with all forms of pain, classically:

  • Low Back Pain
  • Sciatica
  • Neck Pain
  • Migraine (Botox Injection)
  • Shoulder Pain
  • Knee Pain
  • Abdominal Pain
  • Widespread Pain

As well as a variety of other pain conditions.

Treatments can range from prescription medication to x-ray/Ultrasound guided injection therapies or radiofrequency denervation.

Dr. Nathan Oliver specialises in the management of all forms of Persistent Pain and has a particular interest in Back Pain, Sciatica, Joint Pain and Migraine.

Dr. Oliver graduated with a medical degree from Queen’s University in 2011. Whilst there he attained a Fulbright Scholarship in leadership from University of Pennsylvania/Drexel as well as the Oscar Reginald Lewis Wilson scholarship from the Royal College of Physicians and was selected to study for an intercalated degree in Public Health, graduating from a Masters in Public Health with commendation.

Following training in General Medicine, Surgery and Emergency Medicine he was selected into the Anaesthetics training programme where he undertook further study and was admitted as a Fellow of the Royal College of Anaesthetists, London. He pursued a specialist interest in Pain Medicine throughout his anaesthetic training and undertook a Fellowship in Pain Medicine where he learned enhanced management of pain including fluoroscopically guided procedures and Ultrasound guided injections.
