Mischa is passionate about all things women's & men's health, particularly improved healthcare access in the postnatal period and for women with persistent pelvic pain and prolapse. After completing her Masters in Continence & Women's Health Physiotherapy, Mischa established Pelvic Fix Physiotherapy to help raise public awareness and improve patient access to quality pelvic health physiotherapy care in her local community of Yeppoon, Rockhampton and surrounds. 

When not seeing her Pelvic Fix Physiotherapy clients, Mischa speaks at community events on the importance of good pelvic health habits, teaches into the Women's & Men's Health unit for the CQUniversity physiotherapy program, and supervises clinical placements for Curtin University's physiotherapy Masters students at the Rockhampton Hospital (where she previously worked as the Senior Women's Health Physiotherapist). Weekends, however, are spent soaking up the Yeppoon sunshine, running, swimming, or playing with her dogs on the beach!

- Your issues are complex and you are seeking an experienced therapist to guide you

- You are looking for someone who is conscious of holistic healthcare needs
