Kara Mulvein, MSc MCSP

Having qualified from The Royal London School of Physiotherapy in 1988, Kara has gained a wealth of experience both in the public and private sector in the U.K., Australia, and New Zealand; and more recently, working in military facilities.

Specialising in musculoskeletal and sports physiotherapy, Kara completed a Masters in Manipulative Therapy at the University of Queensland in 1994. The ongoing research at Queensland heightened her interest in spinal problems and particularly the influence of spinal (core) stabilization in relation to other conditions (such as sports injuries). Kara also has an interest in women’s health problems, including pre and post-natal back pain and pelvic floor dysfunction.

An extremely motivated therapist, she continually updates her skills by attending courses and conferences both nationally and internationally. She has also been involved in lecturing small groups and giving presentations, and has close links with International Olympic Team physiotherapists.

Kara owned and managed a physiotherapy clinic in Wellington, NZ and feels very passionately about physiotherapy both in terms of its clinical standards and the professional service delivery. She enjoys treating and educating patients to enable them to perform and function at the level they aim for, with a good understanding of how to get the best from their bodies without predisposing to injury.

A bit of a culture vulture herself, she is loving everything that London has to offer. She is also an avid traveller and has various sports and outdoor interests including sailing, cycling, skiing, hiking and recently, kitesurfing.
