WHY DID LAURENCE BECOME A SPORTS THERAPIST?

From a young age Laurence was involved in a range of sports and, as a result, would occasionally pick up injuries, which caused him a lot of frustration. This led to him researching and taking ownership of his own injury rehabilitation and finding an interest and passion for injury management and prevention. This inevitably led to him to pursue this as a career and attending university to study Sports Therapy.. the rest is history!

WHERE WOULD WE FIND LAURENCE IN HIS SPARE TIME?

Laurence enjoys keeping fit in the gym, playing football, cycling, and running. He also enjoys socialising with his friends, eating, and watching the football.
