Alice Crisp


Alice Crisp (Mona Vale)


After graduating 10 years ago Alice spent her first two years as a physio working  a rotation around country hospitals from Musswellbook to Cessnock and Newcastle. She describes this rotation as a time when she “saw it all”! We think she means that there were a lot of interesting cases that helped her develop the wide ranging skills and knowledge that we know she has today. Alice also worked for 5 years in the Sydney CBD before making her sea change and finding MGS Mona Vale to settle into.

Like many of the MGS Physios, Alice progressed her studies as a post graduate and gained her Master’s degree in Manual Therapy. This requires an extra 2 years’ worth of full time study and is not undertaken unless someone is passionate about the quality and type of work they do. Both of these factors have made her another perfect fit for MGS where we attempt to excel at assessment and manual therapy treatment. It’s no surprise that given her specialty studies Alice has a particular interest in the treatment of neck and back pain.

Alice is married to an architect which she says means having “plans” to live in an awesome yet unfinished home and they will do just that with their 2 young daughters. She loves travel and proved it by working for a 3 month placement in India. She has also dived in the red sea and amazingly walked the Kokoda trail. Alice is a skier, a trail runner and has done the big 100km Oxfam trail walk. She talks of an 80 foot Oyster and Lasers which makes her sound like 007 however these things are apparently sailing boats and Alice has a license to sail them.
