About the Oakalls Physiotherapy Clinic
(Formally Bounceback Physiotherapy)
Welcome to "The Oakalls" Physiotherapy Clinic website. The Oakalls Clinic is a Private Physiotherapy and Acupuncture clinic based on The Oakalls in Bromsgrove and has recognition of most of the leading health insurance providers.
The Clinic was established in 2012 as "Bounceback" physiotherapy. In 2018 we moved to bigger premises to accommodate our expanding business (we are proud to say that our business has grown due to all our word of mouth referrals from our loyal patients and close working relationships with local consultants). In 2018 we also decided to change the name to reflect the location of the new clinic and develop a connection to our local community. In early 2020 Caroline & Barbara welcomed Mandy to the team to keep up with the demand for our services and new patient referrals.
Please feel free to browse the website and see what we have to offer!

Caroline Spearing BSc Physiotherapy MCSP, MAACP, PG Cert
& Clinic owner.
Caroline studied Physiotherapy at The University of Birmingham. On completion of her BSc (Hons) degree she has worked in both private and NHS out-patient clinic's in Worcerster and Birmingham. Caroline was then employed by Warwickshire NHS Foundation Trust as part of a intergated community admissions prevention and rehabilitation team. Caroline continued to work alongside her NHS work on a private basis, specialising in musculo-skeletal injuries at the Oakalls Physiotherapy Clinic in Bromsgrove. However, her private practice has grown and has now given up her NHS roles to concentrate on her private practice.
On graduation Caroline has completed 100 credits at MSc level at both Keele University and The University of Birmingham including a module in Medical Acupuncture. Being passionate about continuing her professional development and ensuring best clinical practice she has completed further post graduate acupuncture courses; including acupuncture and pregnancy and trigger point release.
Caroline was also chosen to take part in NIKE'S running campaign, which involved giving advice at local running clubs as well as a VIP trip to Oregon where she took part in the Oregon Mount Hood to Coast relay. She also spent time at NIKE'S HQ in Oregon where she visited their research labs learning the latest on their new running shoe technology.
Caroline's early career was with racehorses, and has ridden over 50 winners as an amateur jockey. She feels that her past experiences of working in a demanding physical lifestyle has given her first hand experience of understanding the nature of injuries and rehabilitation within the musculo-skeletal field of physiotherapy.
Caroline is a registered member of the Health Professions Council, The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy, Physio First and the Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists.

Amanda Ingleby BSc Physiotherapy, MCSP, MAACP, MFHT
Amanda studied Physiotherapy at the University of Birmingham after a long career in education. She has worked for the NHS in musculoskeletal physiotherapy for five years, working in musculoskeletal outpatients at the Worcester Health and Care Trust and as the physiotherapist and remedial masseur for staff of the West Midlands Ambulance Service.
Before studying physiotherapy Amanda built up a portfolio of soft tissue skills and experience, including Level IV Sport Massage Therapy. The sports massage training involved pre and post-run massage at a range of running events including the Sports Relief Mile and the Race for Life. The sports massage course led to an interest in physiotherapy.
The soft tissue portfolio has been further developed and includes myofascial release, cupping, deep tissue massage, holistic massage, lymphatic drainage, seated acupressure massage, and pregnancy massage. Skills are kept up to date through membership of the Federation of Holistic Therapists.
Amanda is keen to continually develop and build on her physiotherapy skills through engagement in events run by consultants, such as the Midland Orthopaedic Practice Birmingham, and run by hospitals such as Spire South Bank Worcestershire and the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital in Birmingham. She also practices Acupuncture for musculoskeletal injuries.
Long before becoming a physiotherapist Amanda was a keen netball player for Linden Netball Club, and a goalkeeper for Loughborough University Ladies Football Club and Birmingham City Ladies. She now engages in Pilates, yoga and the gym, and is about to start training for an Iceland Trek to raise money for Marie Curie in September 2021.
Amanda is a registered member of the Health and Care Professions Council, The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy, the Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists and the Federation of Holistic Therapists.
Barbara Pack (Office Manager)
I have known Caroline for many years now. Her skills as a Physiotherapist have helped me to overcome various running injuries of my own over the years! Three years ago, I joined Caroline to support her with her admin work. During that time, I have seen the business grow and my role as an admin assistant increase. We have now moved premises, giving Caroline much more space in her treatment room and a small reception area for me to work in. I now meet many of the clients that I have chatted to over the phone or text/emailed over the years! I love my work as no two days are the same and with the business going from strength to strength, it keeps me very busy.
