Imogen Haylock

Physiotherapist

Imogen graduated from the University of South Australia receiving two University Merit Awards. She was also awarded the Geoffrey Maitland Prize for the Bachelor of Physiotherapy, given to the student with the highest aggregate mark in the musculoskeletal component of the degree.

She enjoys working with people with a wide range of musculoskeletal issues and in particular, learning about how and why we move, and applying this knowledge to herself and others. Imogen aims to help each patient achieve optimal movement and reach their personal goals. She does this by not only looking at the area where the pain is but at all other factors that may contribute to their presentation too.

A little more about Imogen

Favourite food:
It’s so hard to choose just one! I love any and all Italian food and so many Adelaide restaurants do it so well. I also can’t go past a good avo on rye for brunch or hazelnut or pistachio gelato for dessert.

Favourite café/restaurant:
Acacia in Henley Beach is my go-to for my morning coffee and I am a regular at Karma and Crow for brunch. For dinner, Golden Boy can do no wrong and in my opinion, their kingfish sashimi is unmatched!

Favourite way to stay active:
Running here, there and everywhere, but mostly at the beach. It’s my favourite way to start or end the day and I always feel amazing for having done it. I love going for runs when I travel to get my bearings in a new location too.

AFL Team:
Adelaide Crows through and through.

Idol/Heroes:
Michael Jordan – I recently watched The Last Dance on Netflix, need I say more. Samantha Gash – an Australian ultramarathon runner and endurance athlete. Brene Brown – a researcher and author with some fascinating insights into human behaviour and vulnerability.

Best way to keep fit:
Find a form of exercise that you love to do and do it often!
Try to get outdoors for some vitamin D as much as you can.
Exercise with a friend or like-minded group of people for accountability and to connect.

Movement Tip:
Be consistent and build up your exercise load gradually for long-term benefits and to reduce injury risk.
