Dietitians are Trained in Food and Nutrition
A dietitian translates scientific nutrition information into practical advice, to help you make the right decision about what to eat. Accredited Practicing Dietitian (APD) is the national credential recognised by the Dietitians Association of Australia (DAA).
A consultation with a dietitian will include a thorough assessment of you and your nutritional needs to identify your long and short term health goals, treatment and management solutions. Your dietitian will tailor advice to YOU and your needs, considering medical conditions and personal circumstances.

A consultation with your Physiotherapist will include a thorough assessment of you to identify and diagnose the underlying cause of your injury. We will then provide you with the treatment and management solutions you need to achieve your goals as quickly as possible.
What’s the difference between a physiotherapist and a specialist Women’s, Men’s and Pelvic Health Physiotherapist?
A general Physiotherapist practitioner will hold a Bachelor, Master’s or Doctorate degree in Physiotherapy.
A Specialist Women’s Men’s and Pelvic Health Physiotherapist has achieved advanced specialised training and successfully completed clinical and oral examinations to be admitted as a fellow to the Australia College of Physiotherapists.
Both our directors, Libby Oldfield and Gen McGlashan, have achieved fellowship of the Australian College of Physiotherapists (FACP) – both in 2010 – and are therefore recognised as Specialist Physiotherapists.
There are only 9 Specialist Women’s, Men’s and Pelvic Health Physiotherapists in Australia.
A Clinical Women’s, Men’s and Pelvic Health Specialist Physiotherapist is skilled at assessing difficult and complex Physiotherapy problems, particularly those that have not responded to previous treatment. Our Specialist Women’s Men’s and Pelvic Health Physiotherapists, Gen McGlashan and Libby Oldfield, work with other physiotherapy practitioners both at Fitwise and other practices to help you get the optimal results from your management and treatment.
