Kate qualified as a physiotherapist in 1987 and between having 3 children she has worked as a physiotherapist ever since. She qualified as a member of the Musculoskeletal Association of Chartered Physiotherapists ( MACP) in 1991, having achieved the standard of excellence required in the management of Musculoskeletal conditions.

In 2003 she started Move & Improve and is also a visiting senior lecturer at the University of Hertfordshire.

Success for Kate is a patient who is back to full strength and with the ability to lead a normal life. 

While she enjoys the time she has with her patients, she loves the moment she says good-bye to them knowing they feel in control of their condition and confident they know how to prevent it returning.

Kate Montgomery

Dionne qualified as a physiotherapist in 1989. After working in London for a few years she took a year out to complete an MSc in Manipulative Therapy leading to membership of the Musculoskeletal Association of Chartered Physiotherapists (MACP) in 1995. After her studies, she returned to London to gain more clinical and managerial experience at the Royal Free.

​She has wored for a Division 1 rugby team including pitch side and evening clinics, gaining experience in acute sports injury management and rehabilitation.

In 1997 she joined the Physiotherapy Dept at the University of Hertfordshire initially, teaching undergraduate students, before moving into postgraduate physiotherapy education in 2005. Over the years she continued to combine both academic and clinical roles, working alongside Kate.

Now she is devoting all her time to clinical work with Move & Improve Physiotherapy bringing both up to date clinical knowledge and experience to the clinic. She enjoys working with people with a range of musculoskeletal conditions.

She believes it is an enormous privilege to work on a one-to-one basis with individuals aiming to better understand what they need to empower them to return to the things that are meaningful for them in life.
