Caroline Bender

Caroline BenderWomen's & Men's Health Physiotherapist

Caroline graduated in London, 1993 and has been working as a Physiotherapist since then, both in the public and private systems in Australia. She completed postgraduate studies in Continence and Women’s Health (Curtin University, W.A) in 2008.

With a partner in the wine industry, Caroline has worked mainly in rural Australia across a wide range of general musculoskeletal conditions and pelvic floor disorders.

In 2010, she returned to Victoria and founded Peninsula Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy and practices within the broad and dynamic multidisciplinary team of TSIC.

Caroline has a deep interest in management of pelvic floor dysfunction and would like to see everyone knowing exactly where these muscles are and how they should be working in everyday life…for men and women!

Being inspired by the sports people around her, she keeps fit with yoga, Pilates and walking. Her passion has always been skiing so Caroline loves living on the Mornington Peninsula with the snow just 3 and a half hours away in winter.
