HELLO AND WELCOME TO MY WEBSITE: SARINA PRIORI PELVIC FLOOR PHYSIO
I have been a physiotherapist for over 25 years, and I have been specialising in the field of continence and pelvic floor physiotherapy for the last 15 years. I’m regularly asked why I chose to work in this field, my response is that I am passionate about women’s and men’s health and children’s incontinence. I find this field of work interesting, challenging and ever changing, as more research is done in this important field. Assisting people with continence and pelvic floor issues has given me great job satisfaction over my professional life.
In 2000, I commenced working at the Continence Foundation in NSW as both a Continence Promotions Officer and Clinician/ Physiotherapist, here my interest and dedication for this field grew further. I gained great experience and learnt that this was a major quality of life issue and that people were often reluctant to seek help. I came to the realization that this specific issue in women, men and children could often be easily improved with physiotherapy including specific exercises and lifestyle education. I felt so motivated to make this my life’s work. This was the beginning of my private physiotherapy practice operating at Winston Hills and Beecroft.
In 2003, after completing a Post Graduate Certificate in Continence and Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation at the University of Melbourne my skills and knowledge had increased further. My practice then extended to the northern suburb of Chatswood.
Since 2003 my experience and wealth of knowledge has grown and I have helped many patients achieve the quality of life they deserve. Enjoying everyday life, being able to exercise, and attending social activities with less stress about their continence or pelvic floor issues. This is of great importance for me, personally.
My personal philosophy is that no one needs to suffer in silence with his or her continence or pelvic floor issue. With a caring and holistic approach, an accurate assessment and systematic treatment plan can be made to achieve the best possible outcome for an individual.
I continue to keep current by attending national and international conferences and courses, to provide the most up to date information and treatments for my patients.
