This is my fiance Ben.. He doesn't actually do anything but I didn't want him to be left out ;)

A word from Lydia...

“The reason I chose a degree in Sports Rehabilitation stemmed from the need to help others.


A little personal background - my father was involved in a nasty car accident and the stories i heard from his rehab really inspired me. he shouldn't be able to walk or talk - which he can perfectly, however he always complained that nobody helped him get back to playing football. Which is where sport rehabilitators come in - we take you that step further. 


I set up LHRehab in order to help anyone suffering and not only aim to return them to a pain-free lifestyle but all the way to their chosen sport or hobby.”

Thanks Dad!
