About Charlotte Duke 

From a young age I have had a passion for animals and the outdoors. A natural progression was to consider a career working in the animal care sector. 

My interest in physiotherapy was sparked following observation of a physiotherapist treating my own animals. From this I sought further experience with a qualified therapist before confirming my career path and applying to the Veterinary Physiotherapy degree at Harper Adams University. 

Growing up I had a particular interest in horses, attending pony club, through to competing at county level showing and more recently dressage at National level and university polo. Through these disciplines I have gained great insight into the daily pressure associated with keeping horses competition fit and I have become particularly interested in the biomechanics of the horse and the importance of horse comfort and strength for optimal performance. I have spent time working at a racing yard, honing my skills and furthering my knowledge of the racing industry. Throughout my studies I developed a particular interest in kissing spine and how posture can have an effect on the spine, sparking my dissertation, assessing the muscle activity of a major muscle in the equine back and it's inter-relationship with the abdominal muscles, in horses with and without kissing spine diagnosis. 

​​

I truly believe that a dog is a member of the family and their health and comfort is of utmost importance. Some of my best moments in life have been those where I have been accompanied by my beautiful GSP Lola. 

​​

I qualified at Harper Adams University with a First Class BSc Honours in Veterinary Physiotherapy (4-year course), accredited by the National Association of Veterinary Physiotherapists (NAVP), and was honoured with the 2020 KRUUSE Veterinary Physiotherapy award for the best Veterinary Physiotherapy student.
