Although the mainstay of his work is muscular and joint injury, he also manages anything from simple nail and skin complaints of the feet to more complex biomechanical issues that cause muscular and joint pain. Simon is experienced in the prescription of orthoses (custom made inserts for your shoes that assist in the treatment of lower limb problems) being fortunate to have prescribed these for a number of professional and international amateur athletes. Simon has worked with some of the GB hockey women’s team in the build up to the London Olympics, as well as treating players from Leicester Tigers RFC, Derby County FC and Aston Villa Football Club.

Reception – Acting Practice Manager
Jethro joined the MOVE CLINICS team as our receptionist in September 2017.
Having grown up in the depths of Essex, Jethro worked for the Metropolitan Police from 2001 to 2013 as a Criminal Intelligence Analyst being based in many places across London. He was involved in the investigation of high volume crime, homicide, serious fraud and latterly phone hacking, all of which we thought was a great apprenticeship for the role of allied health clinic receptionist.
Seeking a change of pace Jethro became a full-time student for a year, studying Photography at Kensington and Chelsea College before launching into his current dual career of reception work and semi-professional photography.
Outside of work, Jethro likes hiking, camping, quiz nights and occasional forays onto the 5-a-side football pitch. If pushed, he will admit to being a fan of The Archers. He has two teenage children who regularly steal his socks and headphones.
Kinga joined the MOVE CLINICS team in 2018, she is the smiling face you will find behind reception a couple of days a week.
Kinga has a love for biology and she is looking to study Animal Science at University in 2019. Currently Kinga is currently undertaking Equine Studies at college and she is also the proud owner of a fury little hamster named Milo.
Following her studies, Kinga would like to specialise in equine and canine nutrition/physiotherapy as she would love to be constantly surrounded by dogs and horses.
