What is Postural Dysfunction?
When you slouch or slump, you stress the small muscles and ligaments around the vertebral column and the unbalanced load on your system can result in muscle weakness and imbalance. Overtime, this can accumulate as degenerative disc and joint changes. This begins a vicious cycle of further unbalanced muscle control, further joint breakdown, along with low grade pain which can progress into more severe pain patterns.
Chronic poor posture results in constant muscle and joint overload. At Imokilly Physiotherapy and Sports Injury Clinic, our physios will assess the current abnormal muscle patterns, and then teach you how to correct them. We will also advise on how to address the contributing environmental factors such as desk set-up, car seat, mattress and pillow positions, so you can aim for great posture in all positions.

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
