Beck also graduated from the University of Sydney with a Physiotherapy degree (First Class Honours) in 2014.
During her honours year, Beck investigated the effect of exercise on ankle ligament laxity and assisted in a project that updated guidelines for Acute Whiplash Associated disorders management.

After nearly 2 years of not being able to run Ciaran and Bek have helped me through my journey. Despite a number of misdiagnoses from other physio's, Ciaran found the underlying injury and worked closely with my coach and specialist to make sure my rehab was aiding my recovery and getting me back into the sports I love.
After receiving treatment from the team at Fit and Flow for a torn hamstring, my running times are similar, if not faster than they were before my injury and I’m back doing my normal exercises without any pain.
I have had three courses of treatment at Fit and Flow Physiotherapy and each has been a success. Ciaran is a dedicated and gifted clinician and her whole team are focused on helping their patients on the road to recovery.
Great culture and staff are super professional. Would highly recommend for anyone with niggly or long-term injuries, was able to learn a lot about my injury and had the continued support of everyone there at the practice!!
Ciaran has treated me for many years for ongoing ailments relating to my body type, the occasional injury and more recently pregnancy and post pregnancy recovery.
