What is a Women's Health Physiotherapist?

Women's Health Physiotherapists have special knowledge and skills to manage the specific health needs of women at all stages of life.

This includes treatment and management of:

  • Problems relating to pregnancy – eg, back/pelvic girdle pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, headaches
  • Problems relating to postnatal recovery – eg, abdominal muscle separation, pelvic floor dysfunction, back and neck pain
  • Bladder and bowel problems –eg, incontinence, urgency and constipation
  • Pelvic organ prolapse
  • Pelvic pain – eg, painful sex, endometriosis, chronic pelvic pain
  • Problems related to ageing – eg, osteoporosis, joint pains

A Women's Health Physiotherapist is more accurately called a Titled Continence & Women's Health Physiotherapist. Physiotherapists who are not Titled cannot call themselves Women's Health Physiotherapists under APA regulations.

What is a Titled Physiotherapist?

Titling is an award granted by the Australian Physiotherapy Association (APA) to Physiotherapists who can demonstrate a high level of knowledge and skills in a particular field. Titling can be awarded across a number of different fields of Physiotherapy.

Titled Physiotherapists may have been granted this award after completing further study (eg, a Masters degree) or by undertaking a rigorous examination process through the APA. In both cases, a Titled Physiotherapist must demonstrate they have a highly developed understanding and skill level in that particular field.

Jenny Phillips was granted the award of Titled Continence & Women's Health Physiotherapist in 2016.
