Roger’s built a long and distinguished career in sports medicine, physiotherapy and rehabilitation.
A promising schoolboy footballer, he just missed the professional grade with Notts County before joining the Royal Air Force as a PT instructor, where he served for five years. In the civilian world, he trained in sports massage and worked as a personal trainer for famous names including Frank Bruno and Dragon’s Den’s James Caan, before qualifying in 1995 as a Chartered Physiotherapist at Cardiff University, beginning his physio career within the NHS in Weston-Super-Mare.
Roger has a long association with professional sport. He has worked as a football physio at Lincoln City and Notts County FC and within the world of international motor sport, as physiotherapist to drivers including Formula 1’s Mark Webber and World Rally Champion, Colin McRae.
Roger works hard to his physiotherapy knowledge into the wider rehabilitation, incorporating a number of disciplines and techniques into his practice.
An economics graduate from Loughborough University, Javin swapped the lure of spreadsheets and financial pages to pursue a career within his first love of sport.
He qualified as a Chartered Physiotherapist from Sheffield Hallam University in 2011 and has continued his professional development ever since.
Landing his role at Liberty Physio + Rehab saw Javin fulfil the ambition he’d held throughout his training – to work in a forward-looking private musculo-skeletal practice, and he’s already taken the opportunity to further his training in muscle therapy, muscle energy techniques and kinetic control.
Javin played football and tennis for Lincolnshire as a teenager and continues to lead an active lifestyle. It’s this love of sport and movement that drives his interest in physical rehabilitation – he’s keen to share the benefits of good training and physical movement.

Unsurprisingly, Lisa’s life-long passion for health and exercise has led her on a journey that involves developing knowledge and discovering in depth techniques and approaches that help people to lead enriched and more balanced lifestyles.

This is where Lisa’s interest in Corrective Exercise came from and it motivated her to create ‘Stretch & Flex’ classes that she is always excited to share with others. Running small group classes since the beginning of 2017, Lisa works with many clients to help improve their posture, balance, overall body strength – particularly the core – and general flexibility.
Lisa’s fitness history includes gymnastics, hockey, rugby, long distance running and more recently Obstacle Course Racing (OCRs). Enthusiastically, she enjoys mixing high-impact cardio with the holistic element of frequent yoga sessions, incorporating well-balanced nutrition for herself, hoping to lead by example.
