POSTURE ASSESSMENT AND CORRECTION
Many musculoskeletal problems are caused by poor posture. Spending long periods in poor postures can exacerbate pain and predispose people to injuries especially spinal and shoulder pain. Everyday activities such as sitting at a desk, carrying young children, using smartphones and even some sporting activities can increase your risk of developing postural issues.
Good posture allows the client to align the joints, particularly in the spine and shoulders for optimal movement and therefore prevents injury.
Put simply… Good posture = Positions of no strain
Poor posture = Positions of strain ( & ultimately tissue failure & injury)
Why does in help?
Good posture relieves tissue strain and optimises a pain free work and life performance.

”Top class service from Michael Gallagher - many times over the years has "fixed me" with sensible and practical solutions and advice, including one occasion where others had suggested more drastic actions which would have had serious implications for myself. Highly recommended!Barry O'Donoghue
”Thanks so much to Darcy for the physio this week and last. I feel fantastic!. I’ve been able to sleep pain-free and dance with my babies again!. Very very happy with the service.Ann Marie Gilmore
”Thanks to Michael and the team at Baily Point Physio. After visiting them in August with knee problems they sorted me out with orthotic insoles and an exercise routine. Since then (2months ago) I have climbed Kilimanjaro twice with no knee problems – a great result. Highly recommend them.Duncan Warner
