Marilla has worked part-time at Proactive Physiotherapy for more than 10 years. She started as a general musculoskeletal physiotherapist but in more recent years she has moved more towards women’s health with a special interest in physiotherapy for the rehabilitation of pelvic floor muscles for both men and women. In 2013, after much shuffling around of her family obligations, she completed her post graduate certificate in this area.
Marilla is part of a small team of physiotherapists at Proactive aiming to provide evidence based practice for the variety of dysfunctions associated with bladder, bowel and pelvic floor muscles. With her family nearly grown, Marilla thinks she may work more rather than less into the future keeping a work life balance in mind. Being fit and healthy as she ages is a bit of a hobby of hers.

At Proactive Physiotherapy we recognise that people still injure themselves, and are in pain, so we are still open for face-to-face consultations for the time being, In the interests of everybody's health we are trying to minimise these face to face treatments, so if your condition can be helped without face to face treatment we will offer you telehealth or phone consults.
For your safety, we have reduced physiotherapists hours to allow us to have only two physiotherapists and one receptionist in the clinic at any one time. We use screening questionnaires for everyone attending the clinic and have strict sanitising procedures in place.
For anyone that doesn't want to come into the clinic, our telehealth service, “Physio By Video” is up and running. Anybody who is interested in this service should contact us by email: firstname.lastname@example.org, or by phone on 40536222 and a physiotherapist can discuss how this works.
Reception will be attended between 830am and 5pm and Monday to Thursday and 830am to midday on Friday, or you can leave us a voice message at other times.
Thank you for your understanding. We wish you all safety and good health in the coming days and weeks.
Julie Faulks and the entire Proactive Physio team.
