Melia Perrizo, DPT
Melia has been an Orthopedic Certified Specialist (OCS) for almost 10 years and achieved this accolade after finishing a year-long post-professional residency in orthopedics where she was mentored one on one by highly trained specialists in their field. With this training Melia is able to recognize the biomechanical dysfunctions and poor movement patterns that lead to the pain patients begin to experience and then address these issues in order to get them back to the activities they love most.
One of her specialities that she loves to help women with is assisting them with getting back into their lifestyle and fitness programs with decreased pain, leaking and other pelvic floor symptoms. Many women go back to exercise very quickly postpartum and Melia finds that their body is not ready for certain types of exercises, but with direction, re-education and awareness we can return to activity without symptoms.
