ANNA HUDSON-KAIDE

Anna Hudon-Kaide is a registered physiotherapist with a passion for helping people with pelvic floor dysfunction. She assesses and treats pelvic health conditions such as bladder and bowel control problems, pelvic organ prolapse, painful intercourse, and other genital pain conditions. She is equally passionate about treating perinatal pelvic pain such as pubic symphysis, SI joint and back pain and coccydynia (tailbone pain). 

Anna obtained a Master of Health Sciences in Physiotherapy from the University of Ottawa in 2018, and has completed post-graduate training in pelvic floor rehabilitation. Prior to this, she attended the University of Alberta, where she earned a Bachelor of Sciences degree.

As an orthopedic practitioner, Anna came to realize how many patients have common concerns related to pelvic health. She also noticed that patients were often too embarrassed to seek advice, or simply unaware that treatment is available. Anna has since joined Dayan Physiotherapy and Pelvic Floor Clinic. She feels an important part of her work is to help shed the stigma of pelvic health concerns and assist people in optimizing the health and function of their pelvic floor, enabling them to fully engage in all aspects of their lives with comfort and joy.

Anna is also fluent in French and Japanese!

In her personal time Anna enjoys running and camping. She’s new to Vancouver and excited to learn how to sail.
