Pelvic Floor & Women's Health Physiotherapist

Caitlin graduated from a Master of Physiotherapy at the University of Canberra in 2008. She spent her new graduate training at Alfred Hospital working in orthopaedics, trauma and rehabilitation. Her extensive experience in musculoskeletal physiotherapy brought the opportunity to specialise in pelvic health, leading her to complete further training in pelvic floor and continence disorders, undertaking her Post Graduate Certificate in Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy at the University of Melbourne. She is now an Advanced Practice Physiotherapist working within the Urogynaecological Team at Western Health.

Outside of her work at Grow Physiotherapy, Caitlin is a senior clinician leading the women’s health physiotherapy team at Sunshine Hospital.

In her spare time Caitlin enjoys yoga, knitting and heading down the Great Ocean Road with her young family whenever the opportunity arises.
