WHEN Laura McCrystal was forced to close down her Rugby physio and fitness business she decided to use her skills to help in the fight against the pandemic.
LMC Physio & Fitness, based in Bilton, offers physiotherapy, running gait analysis, pilates, sports massage, personal training and strength and conditioning classes, which all stopped following lockdown.
Laura, the firm’s clinic director and lead physiotherapist, said: “Like so many small businesses it was very hard when I had to make the decision to close the business due to the coronavirus outbreak.
“However, I decided she wanted to do something good returned to the NHS as a frontline physio working in intensive care.
“I have also continued to offer virtual pilates classes and physio consultations via video link for people still struggling with aches and pains and wanting to keep fit.”
Over Easter Loren also organised a virtual 5k run for The NHS charity and raised over £750.
More than 50 people took part, running a 5k alone and then posting their results on the clinic’s Facebook page.
Laura added: “I wanted everyone to have a momentum from the event so has designed and brought medals for everyone who took part.”
