Rose graduated with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy from the University of SA in 2004. Early in her career Rose developed a passion for women’s health and in 2018 she completed her Postgraduate Certificate in Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy at Melbourne University.
As well as experience in treating musculoskeletal, sports injuries and rehabilitation, Rose has specialised knowledge and skills in the treatment of pre and post-natal women and an understanding of the unique challenges they face.
Rose also works as a Senior Physiotherapist at the Women’s & Children’s Hospital and has skills and experience in the assessment and treatment of chronic pelvic pain, dyspeurnia (painful sex), anorectal dysfunction and bladder dysfunction, including urinary incontinence. Rose regularly treats women with perineal trauma and has advanced skills in the physiotherapy management of 3rd and 4th degree perineal tears.
Assisting patients to achieve their goals is one of Rose’s great passions. She uses her skills in massage, manipulative therapy, dry needling and personalised exercise prescription, as well as working closely with local personal trainers and Pilates instructors. This combined physiotherapy and networking approach enables her patients to reach their full potential.
In the process of raising a young family, Rose tries to keep a balance between her work life and keeps fit by running, swimming, cycling, surfing and dancing.
Maintaining her professional development means Rose is dedicated to attending regular education courses and lectures. Rose has completed the Watson headache course along with holding qualifications in dry needling (Level 1 & 2).
