Kate Hooper is a physiotherapist with post graduate qualifications in pelvic floor rehabilitation. She completed her physiotherapy training at the University of Queensland in 1999 and finally got around to completing her post graduate training through Curtin University in 2015. Despite the delay in pursuing formal university post-graduate qualifications, Kate has been working in the field of Women’s and Men’s Pelvic Health since 2002. She has worked in many tertiary teaching hospitals in the UK, Canberra, and Brisbane. Kate continues to work part time in the public sector and since 2014, she has worked in the Physiotherapy led Pelvic Health Clinic and functional bowel units at QEII Hospital.
Kate has extensive experience treating urinary incontinence, faecal incontinence, prolapse, functional bowel disorders and persistent pelvic pain. When appropriate, an intimate examination may be performed to assess the pelvic floor muscles and Kate may use evidence based medical equipment such as ultrasound, biofeedback and pessaries to assist in your treatment.
Kate has three children and understands how important it is to remain active. She believes that although the pelvic region of our body is important, it should not rule our lives. As such the goal of all treatments is to ensure you can live your life to its fullest with minimal impact from pelvic floor dysfunction.
