Tara Abott, PT, DPT
Tara is a long-time local to the Pomona Valley, being born and raised within the local community.
She became part of the Body Center PT team in September 2017, after working at several outpatient orthopedic clinics within other communities and wanted to be able to serve the community in which she now resides. She has had experience evaluating and treating various injuries varying between work-related injuries, sports, post-surgical, TMJ, and balance.
She earned her Doctor of Physical Therapy in 2013 from the University of St. Augustine, San Marcos in which she learned manual therapy approaches from various approaches like Paris, McKenzie, and Maitland. Within her first year of practicing, she attended an Orthopaedic Residency program that prepared her to sit for her specialty board, in which she became a board certified Orthopaedic Clinical Specialist (OCS) in 2015. She is interested in expanding her knowledge within the functional screening approaches along with attending a fellowship. When not treating patients, you can find her trail running, hiking with her dogs, rock climbing…pretty much anything outdoors.
