Róna has worked in a variety of clinics and hospitals in Ireland and Australia over the last 20 years. She has developed her expertise in orthopaedics and musculoskeletal therapy through her work in sports clinics in Dublin, Galway and Australia, as well as in a variety of private and public hospitals, including University Hospital Galway, Prince of Wales Hospital, and St. Luke’s private orthopaedic hospital, Sydney.
Róna also has a keen interest in paediatrics and ante-natal/post-natal physiotherapy, and has honed her skills in these areas, having worked in The National Maternity Hospital, Holles Street, Dublin, The Women’s Hospital, Sydney, and Our Lady’s Hospital for Sick Children, Crumlin, Dublin.
As part of a research project in the University of Ulster in 2009, Róna was involved in the design, development and delivery of a rehabilitation programme for musicians with performance-related musculoskeletal disorders. As a result, Róna is adept at assessing and managing musicians with performance-related injuries, which is a great asset to the clinic, since this type of rehabilitation is often neglected, particularly in traditional Irish musicians.
Having recently completed, and gained a first class honours in a Masters in Medical Science at NUIG (2016 – 2018), and a Diploma in Orthopaedic and Rheumatological Medicine (2017), Róna plans to pursue her studies further with a Masters in Orthopaedic medicine (2019) and a Masters in Healthcare Management (2019-2021).Rona works on Thursday evenings and Saturdays from 10am – 2pm.
