Pelvic Health Clinic at INP

At Inner North Physiotherapy (Thornbury) we have an expert  Pelvic  Health clinic dedicated to addressing the often-distressing symptoms of incontinence, pelvic pain, and bladder and bowel dysfunction. Highly educated and experienced clinicians, who understand the impact of these symptoms, offer compassionate services in the Inner North.

Ali Harding, Ellen Barnett, Adriane Khablyuk, Steph Vernon  and  Jen Langford form our Pelvic Health Team.

The team has Post Graduate qualifications in Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation and Incontinence from Melbourne University. They now frequently lecture and are Clinical Supervisors at Melbourne University.

With extensive ante and post natal experience and musculoskeletal skills, they will help you with your pelvic health through your pregnancy and postnatal rehab.

We value a sensitive and comprehensive 
approach to managing pelvic, bladder and bowel conditions for patients of all ages. We will educate you about your condition and provide care  to get you back to your best. We are skilled in the use of Real Time Ultrasound and we have our pessary clinic beginning in Autumn 2021.
