Aline Filipe - Physiotherapist


Aline is a pelvic floor physiotherapist that has a strong passion for advocacy, research, and pelvic health. With over 11 years of experience in clinical practice, she is constantly learning and improving her knowledge to provide the most effective, up-to-date and research-based treatments for her clients.

Aline completed her Masters in Continence and pelvic health from Curtin University and a post-graduate diploma in Women’s health physiotherapy from Portugal and has vast experience in mentoring pelvic floor physiotherapists in Australia and overseas. Moreover, she has published research about pelvic pain and sexual pain, an area that she is greatly passionate about.

Aline believes that everyone with a pelvic floor should have access to care regardless of choices, gender and sexuality hence, she is trained in pelvic physiotherapy for children, women, men (including preparation and rehab after prostate cancer treatment/ prostatectomy), trans and intersex.

Having lived with pelvic pain most of her life, Aline can empathise with those who live with pain. This led to her creating her volunteering and advocacy platform, The Pelvic Tuner.
