April’s personal interests include horse riding and skiing, but her main passion is Physiotherapy, and so she regularly attends clinics and seminars from lecturers around the globe to ensure that her treatment techniques and advice are as current as possible. She has recently been able to combine her love of equestrianism and Physiotherapy however by working closely with the Professional Jockey’s Association, predominantly at Lingfield and Kempton Racecourse, where she treats flat and jump jockeys recovering from minor knocks to majors injuries.
April can help you recover from an accident or injury, improve your performance or even just reduce the risk of that niggle turning into something more serious.
Tara graduated with a BSc (Hons) from St. Georges Hospital Medical School, London in 2003 and has worked in the NHS, with various sports clubs and in private practice. Before embarking on a career in Physiotherapy, Tara gained qualifications in Massage, Aromatherapy, Reflexology, Sports Therapy and Sports Massage.
In 1998, Tara worked with the Armed Forces, delivering sports therapy and rehabilitation at the Woolwich Barracks. It was during this time she became intrigued with injuries to the musculoskeletal system caused by sport and decided to further her career with a degree in Physiotherapy. She has since worked very closely with both amateur and professional athletes including international boxers, tennis players, golfers, national rugby clubs, athletic clubs and local fun run competitors.
Whilst working for the NHS, Tara split her time between Musculus-skeletal and Respiratory, leading two teams in the Critical Care Unit. She took an active part in training other staff and designed Back Care Education leaflets and seminars for patients suffering from chronic pain. Tara left the NHS in January 2011, thus allowing her to increase her private working hours and dedicate herself to the sports field even further. She currently works with Millwall Rugby Union Football Club, The Greenwich Admirals Rugby League and Charlton Athletic Club.
