Many people experience an episode of mechanical back and neck pain during their life. Often this does not occur as a result of a specific incident, but develops due to the regular “use and abuse” that comes with a busy life!
Low Back Pain
LOW BACK PAIN can present as mildly as an aching sensation in the lower back, right up to severe pain radiating into the leg, commonly known as sciatica. Sometimes patients can attribute its onset to a lifting injury or accident, while equally it can be of unknown onset with no apparent mechanism of injury. By consulting a Chartered Physiotherapist you can be confident that we are medically trained and can identify more serious pathologies and facilitate further investigations or refer on as required. However if we determine that your back pain is likely to respond to conservative physiotherapy treatment, you can rest assured that our experienced therapists have advanced post-graduate qualifications to help accurately diagnose and treat disc, joint, muscle and nerve issues.
NECK PAIN can be felt centrally in the neck; up into the head causing headaches (cervicogenic headaches);or travelling down the arm to the fingers, or down the spine to the shoulder blade. Sometimes it is accompanied by pins and needles/tingles in the arm and hand, commonly called a “trapped nerve”. Neck pain often develops due to poor posture, however it can also by caused by a whiplash type injury– either from a road traffic collision or fall. As always, when you choose a Chartered Physiotherapist you can have peace of mind in knowing we have auniversity-level qualification and are committed to the highest possible standards of care.

Having been dogged with injury I decided to have a full prehab/FMS screen with Colette at Imokilly Physiotherapy and Sports Injury Clinic. My starting score was 12/21 which placed me in a high risk injury bracket but by doing my corrective exercises, I not only played through the whole season un-injured but I also got my score up to 17/21 by the end.
I had spent a significant amount of money elsewhere on unwearable orthotics, before coming to Imokilly Physiotherapy Clinic. The orthotics I got here are by far the most comfortable to wear, and I wouldn't put a pair of shoes on without them!
Having had a long long history of back-pain which was then managed surgically with a dynamic fusion I was nervous about commencing any exercise. My neurosurgeon recommended that I attend a physiotherapist-led clinical Pilates class and I was lucky to find Sarah. Her entire approach is aimed at individualised rehabilitation, namely the individual assessment, tailored exercise programmes, small classes and follow-up emails. The standard of Pilates service is far superior to a fitness-based drop in class, and hence ideal for those with injuries.
Chronic Achilles tendinopathy was limiting my ability to progress my marathon training and I knew that I had to tackle it properly to allow it to heal. Although it was frustrating to step back from training, I am now running painfree and hoping for a marathon PB
