Rebecca Stone BSc (Hons) MSST
I graduated from Birmingham in 2007 with a first class honours degree in Sports
Therapy. Since graduating, I have completed numerous workshops, seminars and
courses including myofascial release therapy, kinesio taping, specific soft tissue
mobilisation, to name but a few. I have also lectured final year Sports Therapy
students at BCU.
In 2007, I set up my clinic, based at Gym and Tonic, Bredons Hardwick, where I continue to practise. I then expanded my
business in 2010, when I started a clinic at Body4You in Greet. In the clinic based environment, I treat a wide variety of
All ages: To date, the youngest person I have treated was an eight year old and the eldest was a 90 year old.
Athletes: From amateur to professional. It’s worth noting that a large proportion of my clients are not at all interested in
sport and simply seek out guidance on how to recover from an injury sustained from a non-sporting incident.
Abilities: The beauty about Sports Therapy is the individual tailoring that it allows. I have been able to adapt treatments
to suit pregnant women, wheelchair bound clients, amputee patients, diabetics, vertigo sufferers and so on. It is important to
be able to ‘think outside the box’ when it comes to designing effective treatment plans.
As well as running my two clinics, I also am Head Sports Therapist for Camp Hill Rugby Club, where I have worked since 2005.
In this environment, my roles are slightly different to that in the clinic. It is my responsibility to assess players’ prior to
matches to establish whether an injured player can be ‘protected’ from further injury via techniques such as strapping, or
whether they need to be rested and not played. During matches I administer first aid where required and I have to make
speedy decisions determining the risk involved with each injury, taking into consideration the health of the player and the
effects my decisions may have on the team dynamics. It is therefore, my responsibility to re-assess any injured players after
matches and to get them fit as soon as possible.
Continuing with my Rugby Union experience, I worked alongside two Physiotherapists and a fellow Sports Therapist at
Gloucester Rugby Club during the 2006-2007 season. It was in this role where my rehabilitation skills were really tested. At
premiership level, there is little room for error.
I have also provided Sports Therapy treatments at The London Marathon, Great North Run, National Kickboxing
Championships, Disability Athletics, Gloucester Football Club, Tewkesbury Triathlon, Tewkesbury Half Marathon and so on.
