About Me

Rebecca Stott

MCSP, HCPC, ACPAT Chartered Physiotherapist. 

I graduated from Teesside University with first class BSc (Hons) in Physiotherapy and have since worked within the NHS specialising in frailty and older adults. Dogs are my passion and from a young age I knew my career would involve them leading me to complete the PGDip Veterinary Physiotherapy degree at Hartpury University.  

I am a category A member of ACPAT (Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Animal Therapy) as well as HCPC (Health and Care Professions Council) registered and a member of the CSP (Chartered Society of Physiotherapy). I am insured with public and professional liability cover. 

I strive to provide high quality veterinary physiotherapy and improve quality of life.

 Price 

£60 per appointment plus travel expenses; see below.

Each appointment includes Assessment, Treatment and a Tailored Home Exercise Programme.

Payment is required at the end of the appointment via cash or bank transfer. 

Please be aware your dog may need a number of appointments over weeks/months to rehabilitate fully. 

Most insurance companies pay towards physiotherapy please check your cover prior to booking. Payment is still required from the customer at time of appointment. You will be provided with a receipt for you to claim on insurance to reimburse you.

 Why ACPAT? 

I completed over 1000 hours hands on training in the human physiotherapy field to become a chartered physiotherapist. I then completed an extra 2 years to develop my skills to treat animals allowing me to become ACPAT registered. This extensive training gives more depth to knowledge as human skills and research can be translated to optimise my work in the animal field. From my assessment of function and injury I am able to clinically reason a combination of treatments from clinical practice and research.

It is best to refer to an ACPAT Physiotherapist early in the healing process or at early identification of problems where possible to aid prevention of compensatory movement and promote function.

 

As an ACPAT Physiotherapist I will work with the vet and will send them updates on our progress, this can be every session if they request it to be.
