At Back In Motion Bribie Island we now offer Podiatry as a service. Meet our new podiatrist Carl.
Carl was originally born in Chicoutimi, Quebec to a French Canadian father and an English mother .Coming from a military family background he moved around a lot as a kid and lived in 3 different countries by the time he was 10 years old. This brought about a love for exploring new places and cultures.
Growing up loving sports led him to wanting to have a career in a sports based profession as well as looking for a job in aiding others.
This brought podiatry to his attention, with a particular interest in how the foot functions during sports and gait.
The University of Salford in Manchester had the most up to date technologies in gait analysis so that’s where his future lied. This also allowed him to work closely with the two soccer teams in the city MUFC and MCFC.
After completing his degree he moved to London to work in the national health system to gain some experience and then went into private practise. While volunteering at the Manchester City football club youth academy
Before he got too settled in his life he strove for a new adventure which brought him here at Back in Motion, Australia.
He chose Back in Motion due to its client centred approach to treatments as well as having the opportunity to work within a multi-disciplinary team along with physiotherapist’s and exercises physiologists. He was the first full time podiatrist working within the company and managed to fill up a caseload requiring further podiatrist’s to be employed.
He is particularly passionate about patient care and wellbeing, which makes for a very thorough treatment as well as been a friendly face you can confide in, as long as you don’t mind the accent.
Outside of the work place he enjoys playing soccer in the Brisbane league, as well as climbing a couple times a week. You may spot him exploring the local area bush walking, diving into rock pools or attempting to surf.
Random fact: him and all his brothers are born on the 18th of every month beginning with a J
