Management Team

Clare Carrick BSc (Hons), MCSP, AACP HPC PH54266, CSP 60420, AACP

Clare Carrick After qualifying in 1998, Clare worked at the Norfolk and Norwich hospital gaining a foundation of work experience. After 2 years she widened her horizons by working in another hospital, Kettering General and in a private sports physiotherapy practice in Northampton in the evenings to gain valuable experience and money to follow her dream of working abroad in New Zealand.

In 2001, Clare left the UK to travel for a few months across America, South Pacific Islands, Australia and onto New Zealand.

In New Zealand work undertaken was varied from private physiotherapy in busy Auckland and Wellington city practices. Clare worked alongside the lead physiotherapist for Super 12 Wellington Hurricanes who played international level Rugby across Australia and New Zealand giving her significant professional Rugby experience treating elite athletes. Clare also ran a busy orthopaedic physiotherapy service as a senior lead clinician for Wellington hospital, which was the specialist centre for the island, which rounded off her experience of working for both private and public sectors of health in New Zealand. Clare returned to the UK in late 2003 with an increased passion for Physiotherapy and a vision for how exceptional Physiotherapy services are delivered. This ambition and desire to continue to travel led Clare to do one thing and that was to set up her own clinic Back in Motion.

Back in Motion now has 7 sites across Norfolk which are managed directly and through a franchise model. Clare still remains as 'hands on' as possible but primarily leads a team of therapists to deliver exceptional Physiotherapy.
