Carly graduated from Sydney University with a Masters of Physiotherapy in 2011 and began her career in private practice straight away. She has had extensive experience in treating complex hip, pelvis and spinal issues and has gone on to complete further studies in Women’s Health. She has also treated a wide range of sporting injuries, along with completing Sports Level I and II courses.
Carly’s assessment and treatment model looks at the whole body and not just treating the injury but looking for functional or biomechanical deficits to help prevent recurrence. She uses a combination of manual therapy, exercise prescription and dry needling and also spends a lot of time educating her patients about their condition which significantly helps with their self-management.
Carly completed studies in Women’s Health early on in her career after seeing the huge impact pelvic floor problems can have on peoples lives. She is passionate about helping women with their pelvic floor issues and also treating pre-and postnatal women for pregnancy related issues.
Outside of physiotherapy, Carly has recently been busy having two young children and running a business with her husband. She stays fit by playing netball, running and going to the gym and loves all things food related – cooking, eating and dining in restaurants!

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.
