Melissa Baudo treating tennis injury for Jelena Jankovic at Australian Open

Tennis Medicine

Tennis Medicine focuses on the treatment of tennis related injuries, injury prevention, and progression of the athlete to optimal health and performance on and off the court.  

 

My goal has been to create the most effective method to treating tennis-related injuries by fusing my clinical and evidence-based knowledge with manual therapy techniques, Pilates-based and neuromotor control exercise, flexibility and strengthening in order to restore function.  

 

I implement a comprehensive, holistic and integrative approach to tennis medicine in order to heal your tennis-related musculoskeletal injuries, pain, and dysfunction. With Dr. Baudo's knowledge and expertise in tennis, her focus is not only on the treatment of the specific injury, but will also identify the cause of injury and implement a plan for injury prevention.  Often the root cause of a tennis injury is within the athlete's kinetic chain. Weak links in the kinetic chain negatively affect force production and causes the athlete to "muscle" the ball to continue playing, which may cause shoulder, elbow and wrist injuries.   

 

Dr. Baudo utilizes various manual therapy techniques, Redcord and The Neurac Method, Trigger Point Dry Needling, Pilates-based exercise, stretching, strengthening, taping, and bracing, which may be implemented in your treatment.
