Rebecca Marshall

Bec graduated from La Trobe University in 1997 and has worked in private practice for over 20 years.

Bec has been an avid sports participant and enthusiast from her early childhood days running around the lucerne fields of the farm in the Fingal Valley.

She won two Head of the River Rowing Championships in 1992/93 (Girls Eight), played hockey for many years and was a keen athlete and cross country runner.

Her first trip to the physio was after a serious back injury which led Bec down the path of cycling. She loves her bikes and in 1999 cycle toured Europe and Scandinavia before settling into Scotland for 6 years. In 2010 Bec rode a stage of the Tour de France in the Pyranees. She now prefers the mountain bike to the road and is excited by the number of new tracks being built throughout the state.

Bec enjoyed a stint as a golf caddie on the Europro Tour and the Australasian Tour from 2003-2005.

Bec’s physiotherapy career highlights have involved working with the Victorian Institute of Sport and Scottish Institute of Sport as well as working back in her home community in the Fingal Valley. She worked with the Great Britain Team at the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Olympics and was a member of the Scottish physiotherapy team for the Manchester Commonwealth Games in 2002.

Bec is a keen manual therapist and enjoys incorporating soft tissue therapy and dry needling with Kinetic control, muscle energy techniques and rehabilitation exercise.

In 2005, Bec returned to her home state of Tasmania and joined Tas Sports Physio. She is a senior physiotherapist and partner at the clinic.

Outside of work Bec enjoys gardening, travelling, music, cycling and is an avid bush walker. Some of her favourite tracks include Lake Rhona, The Western Arthurs, Frenchman's Cap, The Larapinta trail, The Jatbula Trail, The Thornsborne Trail and the Kumano Kodo (Japan).
