Caribbean Bodies in Balance Physiotherapy

Rebecca Shatz is a licensed physical therapist in Michigan, USA, and in Barbados. Having practiced physiotherapy in Michigan, USA, for the past ten [10] years she has obtained experience in the following areas:

  • · neurorehabilitation

  • · orthopedic rehabilitation

  • · sports medicine

  • · geriatric home healthcare

  • · cancer rehab

  • · vascular insufficiency

  • · complete decongestive management therapy for:

o lymphedema

o lipedema


I obtained my Master of Physical Therapy from the University of Delaware , and have taken multiple continuing education courses in the specialty areas above since then. My most recent certification is as a Certified Lymphedema Therapist, through the Norton School of Lymphatic Therapy, and I am currently the only person in Barbados with this American certification, and one of only two people with any type of certification in this area, in Barbados.



My approach: Drawing on my technical training and experience obtained in the USA, I intend to deliver physiotherapy services with a difference guided by the following:


Philosophy: Improving the lives of people affected by disability or weakness is my mission. Helping them regain control after injury is my goal. You are not alone. From chronic pain, back pain, sports or work related injuries, venous insufficiency, pre- and post- surgical care, I am here to give you tools you need to continue your vacation pain free, and go home with a program that will help you take charge of your life.



Flexibility: I am available 7:00 AM to 3:00 PM in Bellville at Sports and Physical Therapy with my partner Jaqueline King, and alternative/home arrangements can be made on a case by case basis to fit anyone’s schedule. Depending on the diagnosis, care would be delivered at our clinic, in a hospital, or at the patients’ home or hotel.
