Rosemary is a physiotherapist with twenty years of experience in physiotherapy, fitness consulting and training. After years of practicing physiotherapy, her passion grew for the physical treatment of Scoliosis. So, she travelled to New York to become certified in the Schroth Method of Scoliosis treatment under the Barcelona School of Physical Therapy. In 2018 she followed this up by attaining the BSPTS C2 Advanced certification in New York. She has travelled to Dubrovnik, Croatia for the 14th Annual SOSORT meeting and will be attending the 15th meeting in San Francisco in April 2019. Rosemary is also certified in the Scientific Exercise Approach to Scoliosis (SEAS). She is currently enrolled in the online World Masters in Principles and Practice of Scoliosis Conservative Management, through ISICO (Istituto Scientifico Italiano Colonna Vertebrale), which is based in Milan Italy.
She is dedicated to combining this knowledge and training, with her repertoire of physiotherapy skills and experience, to provide the best possible treatment for her patients. Click here for more information about Schroth and SEAS Scoliosis treatments.
Rosemary has the ability to communicate well with sporty and inactive children who are experiencing injury due to their scoliosis, particularly the elite level athletes. Her strengths include being able to assess the situation to determine a successful return to sport or activity as quickly as possible without jeopardising the child’s health and fitness. This principle also applies to the adults she treats with return to sport, work or lifestyle activities at the forefront of her mind.
Rosemary is a member of the Australian Physiotherapy Association. In 2019 she is preparing to work closely with Macquarie University – stay tuned for updates on what lies ahead!
