Eileen graduated from the University of Limerick in Ireland in 2012 with her degree in Physiotherapy. She emigrated to New Zealand in 2013 where she initially worked in private practice in Wellington for a couple of years. Following a few months working in Melbourne, Eileen moved to Christchurch and has been working at Rolleston Central Physio since May 2016. Her main areas of interest are sports related injuries and musculoskeletal conditions. This stems from her own keen interest in sport where she played Gaelic Football and hurling back in Ireland at a high level and has continued to do so in New Zealand (although a lot more social)! Eileen likes to incorporate manual therapy and techniques such as dry needling (for which she has her level 1 & 2 GEMT qualifications) into her treatment strategies and places great emphasis on exercise prescription.
