Dr Trish Neumann, a Specialist Continence & Women's Health Physiotherapist, providing expert care for pelvic floor problems.

Trish graduated with a PhD in physiotherapy from the University of South Australia, where she is an adjunct senior lecturer.

She was awarded Fellowship of the Australian College of Physiotherapists in 2010, becoming a Specialist Continence & Women's Health Physiotherapist and the only specialist in pelvic floor physiotherapy in South Australia.

Trish was the director of The Pelvic Floor Clinic for over 20 years, providing services for men and women with pelvic floor problems and employing and mentoring young physiotherapists with an interest in pelvic floor physiotherapy.

In March 2016, The Pelvic Floor Clinic closed and Trish now works as a consultant to Flex Rehabilitation Clinic.

Flex Rehabilitation Clinic is one of Adelaide's leading physiotherapy clinics. Trish is involved in patient care at Flex, seeing men and women with pelvic pain and complex pelvic floor problems. She works closely with a team of younger pelvic floor physiotherapists to provide excellence in patient care.

Trish and her pelvic floor physiotherapy colleagues provide services at Flex for people with chronic (or persistant) pelvic pain through the Adelaide Pelvic Pain Network (www.adelaidepelvicpainnetwork.org). This network provides access to a multi-disciplinary team of expert health care professionals who have experience in working together to help people with pelvic pain.

Trish's interest in pelvic pain led her to develop resources to help people with pelvic pain. Pelvic relaxation exercises can be ordered as a CD or downloaded from this website as an MP3 file. She has also developed an education program for individuals and couples about understanding the science of persistent pain to help the healing process. Bookings for the monthly, evening "Understanding Pelvic Pain" seminars can be made by phoning Flex Rehabilitation Clinic. 

Trish is director of physiotherapy services at South Terrace Urology, a service only available to men undergoing robotically assisted radical prostatectomy with the urologists at South Terrace Urology.

Trish has authored many papers on various aspects of pelvic floor physiotherapy and a clinical practice guideline, she has written two book chapters and has lectured nationally and internationally. She continues to be involved in research into physiotherapy for pelvic floor conditions.
