Opening Ceremony of the 5 th Asian Indoor Games in September 2017 at Ashgabat, Turkmenistan.

Saleh Wadei (first row waving toward the camera) and Abdullrahman al-Dharman (middle row waving toward the camera) proudly represent Saudi Arabia at the Opening Ceremony of the 5th Asian Indoor Games in September 2017 at Ashgabat, Turkmenistan.

Few people are fortunate enough to use their passions to give back to their country and community. Saleh Wadei and Abdullrahman al-Dharman are. Both are physical therapists at JHAH, and both are physical therapists for many of the national teams of Saudi Arabia including indoor athletics, cycling, swimming and weightlifting.

“When I was young I was interested in sports. I still am,” said JHAH senior physical therapist Abdulrahman Al-Dharman. “Physical therapy caught my interest because I could have direct contact with the sport.”

Most of the time, the two can be found in JHAH Rehabilitation Services, Saleh at the Dhahran Health Center and Abdullrahman at the Al-Hasa Health Center. Other times, if you watch the Saudi national teams on television, you might catch a glimpse of them on the sideline caring for the players and cheering for their team.
