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.
