Aileen O'Carroll

Aileen graduated from Trinity college Dublin in 1988 with BSc (Honours) in Physiotherapy. Aileen further developed her skills through various postgraduate courses and extensive clinical work. She worked in both hospitals and private clinic in the Middle East and London prior to returning to work in Blackrock Clinic in 1991. From there she returned to her native Kerry to found Listowel Physiotherapy clinic in 1992. Business flourished and in 1996 Aileen moved the Clinic to a new purposely designed building in Convent Street enabling an expansion of the services that it could provide. Her business expanded further in 2004 by the opening of a second clinic in Ardfert medical centre.

Continuous professional development has been a hallmark of Aileen's career. Through this motivation to constantly expand her repertoire of treatment techniques, she has completed extensive postgraduate training including all the major fields of Spinal Manual Therapy-Cyriax, Maitland, Mulligan, and Mckenzie, Biomechanic and Orthotic prescription. Also in 2000 she went to Australia to complete The Certificate in Spinal Manual Therapy in McCurtin University in Perth.

Since commencing in private practice Aileen has taken a special interest in the treatment of female health issues such as incontinence, vaginal prolapses and post partum pelvic dysfunction, and is a member of the Irish Society of Physiotherapists in Female Health.

Over the years Aileen has had the privilege to work with all levels of sports people. She has worked with various county teams in Hurling, and football and enjoyed working with the Kerry senior footballers under the late Paidi O'Se providing pitch side and clinic services.

Beyond the private practise, Aileen has also found lecturing rewarding work. In 1997 she trained as a Manual Handling Instructor and provides courses regularly in Backcare, Manual handling and Ergonomic in both Industrial and Health Care facilities. She has also lectured in Tralee Institute of Technology Health and Leisure Course.

In 2007 for family reasons Aileen retired from management of both clinics, which Paudie Whelan now owns and manages. She continues to work as a physiotherapist pursing her passion to understand the functioning of the musculoskeletal system something which remains her primary goal over 25 years later.
