Bronwyn Jest is a Chermside physiotherapist with a particular interest in Pelvic Health: Continence and Rehabilitation of the Pelvic Floor.
She graduated from the University of Queensland with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy and subsequently practised in Goulburn, Sydney and Brisbane. This period of time saw her work and gain experience in all facets of physiotherapy eventually choosing to practise in musculoskeletal and neurological rehabilitation.
Bronwyn followed in the footsteps of so many Australians and lived and worked overseas for some years. This took her to Canada and London and included the ‘Grand Tour’ of Europe!
Returning home to Brisbane, married and with her first baby on the way, Bronwyn took her ‘First Retirement’ to stay at home and be with her three children.
She returned to physiotherapy practice and fulfilled a long held desire to help women with continence problems. She completed postgraduate study at the University of Melbourne receiving a Postgraduate Certificate in Physiotherapy (Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy). She has also broadened her skills to include the management of pelvic floor dysfunction in men. She is committed to continual learning and undertakes regular professional development to remain up to date with the current evidence.
Bronwyn has a positive approach to pelvic health concerns and is passionate about getting the message out that continence issues can be treated effectively and people should not have to suffer in silence. She regularly provides community education forums about pelvic health.
Bronwyn works in her own private practice at Chermside in Brisbane’s northern suburbs.
When not working, she enjoys exercising, reading, music, admiring (and collecting) antique pottery, swimming at the beach and spending time with her husband Martin and three adult offspring.
