Int. Physiotherapist

Farideh D. Manshadi

Farideh has been a physiotherapist for 25 years. She earned her Bachelor and Master’s Degrees in Physiotherapy from Iran University of Medical Sciences in 1989 and 1993 respectively. She then worked as a faculty member, where she was responsible for facilitating and supervising the practical education of physiotherapy students in a university hospital.

Having worked with a wide variety of patients, she found that many of them were struggling with issues like a lack of urinary control or other pelvic floor disorders, but they were not able to talk about their problems due to feelings of shame or embarrassment. She felt strongly about fighting the stigma surrounding these health issues and helping people to live more comfortably. Thus, from 2005 to 2010, as a Ph.D. Candidate, she focused on women’s health and pelvic floor dysfunctions and worked with the Gynecology department of Tehran University of Medical Sciences. Participation in a specialized pelvic floor rehabilitation course, conducted by Dr. Alain Bourcier, enhanced her knowledge and practice in the field of pelvic floor rehabilitation.

From 2010 to 2018, Farideh worked as an Associate Professor and as the head of the Women’s Health Branch of the Iranian Physiotherapy Association. She is currently a member of the International Continence Society.

As an experienced clinician, Farideh believes wholeheartedly in the ability of skilled hands and therapeutic exercises to relieve patients’ pain, to help them to overcome their movement challenges, and to improve their quality of life.
