Leah Kubale – Pelvic Health Physiotherapist

I have over 15 years experience as a musculoskeletal physiotherapist, treating a whole range of musculoskeletal disorders using a combination of hands-on physiotherapy, dry needling and exercise rehabilitation.

I knew from a young age that I wanted to work in career that was hands-on and in healthcare. I initially qualified as a Registered Nurse and after working across various specialities, I eventually specialised in theatres, ending up in theatre management.

Keen to return to clinical work and further expand my knowledge, I returned to university as a post-graduate and received a Master of Physiotherapy from Curtin University and worked in private practice in Perth for over 15 years.

After the birth of my daughter, I realised the huge importance of Pelvic Health Physiotherapy and the shortage of services available, so I returned to university again to obtain a Graduate Certificate in Clinical Physiotherapy (Pelvic Health).

These days I split my time between being a mum, working as a Physio and nursing (Gastroenterology) to keep me up to date with the current specialists, procedures and medications out there in the clinical setting.

I find Pelvic Health is a fascinating field that is a perfect amalgamation of my nursing and physiotherapy experience. I find working in Pelvic Health an incredibly rewarding career and I love listening to clients say that visiting a pelvic health physio has been life changing and they should have done it ages ago! Pelvic health involves multiple, interrelated body systems, and I really enjoy fitting all the puzzle pieces together to achieve the best optimal outcomes.

Make menopause matter!

Make menopause matter!

Menopause is the time in life when you stop having monthly periods.  This marks the natural end of the reproductive stage of your life and is defined as having gone 12 months without having a period.   There are currently no blood tests or imaging available to diagnose menopause, nor any tests that will predict when it will happen. Menopause occurs for the majority of women between 44 – 56 years. Each woman experiences menopause differently.
