Since graduating in 1971, Annette Innis has enjoyed working as a physiotherapist in several areas of clinical interest. Her interest in Women’s Health began early, with highlights being her first Pelvic Floor Course in 1983, University of South Australia Graduate Certificate in Women’s Health (1994), and being awarded the Australian Physiotherapist Association Continence and Women’s Health Physiotherapist (2011). She has supported her professional association at a state and national level on committees (including a term as APA SA Branch President) for more than 20 years.
Most women know that having a strong pelvic floor is important, however many have poor awareness of these muscles and don’t prioritise them. As a result they can let us down.
So, have you thought about your pelvic floor muscles today – honestly? Are you clenching them as you read this? If you haven’t you’re certainly not alone.
