ABOUT PHYSIO IN ACTION
Kirsty Tarr. MCSP
I am owner and director of Physio In Action and have been in private practice since 1997 specialising in musculoskeletal physiotherapy early on in my career within both the NHS and private settings. As a keen sportswoman myself I understand the frustration often caused by injury and therefore will strive to get you fit as quickly as possible. I have a passion for empowering people to take control of their own health enabling them to develop a positive and active role in injury prevention and recovery.
My practice is built on recommendation, treating a wide range of conditions (sport and non-sporting conditions) using the same ethos of empowering self management wherever possible.
Physio in Action promotes a holistic approach to treatment and also has a podiatrist, psychologist, sports massage therapist and a therapeutic massage therapist as part of its team.
I have also completed several ACPOHE courses gaining expertise in Occupational Health assisting local companies in reducing sickness absence and facilitating early return to work
Rosemary Rhodes qualified as a physiotherapist in Liverpool in 1987. After this, she worked in the National Health Service and private practice in the West Midlands for 13 years, specialising in the treatment of musculoskeletal injuries and gaining considerable experience diagnosing and managing orthopaedic conditions, whilst working as an extended scope practitioner in an orthopaedic clinic. She has a particular interest in postural imbalances and core stability which led to her undertaking an MSc in Neuromusculoskeletal Healthcare, as well as a personal training qualification with the National Association of Sports Medicine.
Rosemary’s interests include treating all forms of musculoskeletal injuries including back / neck / shoulder pain and she specialises in the treatment of endurance runners and triathletes. As an ultra-runner herself, she has many years experience in the management of running injuries and adopts an approach with all athletes that recognizes the importance of keeping the athlete training wherever possible, while promoting a balanced approach to exercise, to prevent further injuries.
Moving to Dubai in 2001, Rosemary established her own physiotherapy clinic at Emirates Golf Club, where she worked with all levels of golfer from club golfer and elite amateur to European Tour and Asian Tour professionals. As well treating golfing injuries, a key area of her practice involved helping golfers improve themselves physically, in order to enhance their swing. She was also the physiotherapist for the Ladies European Tour, at their events in Dubai and India from 2008-2011 and for Golf Australia from 2014-2016.
When not working and running, Rosemary enjoys teaching adaptive skiing for people with disabilities; being a guide runner for a blind friend on charity events and doing anything outdoors!
