“I have been working with Melissa for over 2 1/2 years now.  I started treatment with her for some tightness in my neck and back while in CrossFit. Then, I developed tennis elbow.  She treated me with dry needling, soft tissue mobilization, and helped me get more core control and strength using the Redcord Suspension Trainer.  Working with Melissa has been fantastic for me. Following a PRP injection to my elbow followed by weekly visits with Melissa, my tennis elbow was gone within two months and I was back on the court.  I have seen a lot of PTs in the past, but I shared my appointment with several other people.  Melissa is completely one-on-one for the entire session, so we were really able to focus on me. She is incredibly knowledgable and always knows how to treat my issues.  Melissa has so much experience with tennis players and tennis injuries.  I have and will continue to recommend Melissa to anyone.  She is such a great resource to have in Atlanta.”

I was struggling with elbow pain for two months and getting treated by another PT in Atlanta but was not making any progress to playing pain-free tennis—or any tennis at all. Melissa was recommended by a doctor at Emory as “a great PT who knows tennis.” He was exactly right.  We went through a course of treatment hoping to get me healthy and back on court while avoiding any medical procedures. Melissa told me this was a 50-50 proposition and, ultimately, I needed PRP. She pulled strings to get the right doctor at Emory to see me quickly and gave me wonderful care and advice about getting back on court.  In addition to focusing on tennis, Melissa has provided me with a holistic approach to better health, showing me exercises, stretches and even a better chair to use at work.

Melissa is an expert and a caring professional.  I wish I had known about her before getting hurt, as I am sure it could have been avoided. Now that she has helped me return to the court, I plan to rely on her advice and treatment to keep me there!”
