Community Profile- Becca SCARRATT

Meet Rimouski’s very own “Scooter Physio,” the one and only Becca Scarratt!

Becca Scarratt is a household name in the world of physiotherapy, serving the Lower Saint Lawrence community and reaching clients from Bic, Saint Fabien, Rimouski, Matane with a few drop-ins from Ottawa, and even Portugal. With 25 years in Rimouski, this native of Nova Scotia is devoted to her role as a physiotherapist.

Her path in physiotherapy was influenced by her grandmother, a respected physiotherapist in London, England. Becca’s own journey into the field felt natural, given her love for sports and success in her physical education bachelor’s degree.

Running her own clinic, Becca embraces the variety of cases that come her way. Her expertise spans acute to chronic injuries, neuro and orthopedic concerns in people of all ages. She values thorough evaluation, clear communication, and effective treatment, often using videos to guide recovery.

While she enjoys treating all types of patients, Becca has a special fondness for young athletes. Their motivation and quick grasp of instructions make them particularly rewarding to work with.

And now, brace yourselves for a dash of quirkiness as we dive into the Proust questionnaire!
