I help women find freedom from pain and gain freedom of movement

Remedy Physical Therapy

Melanie made me believe in Physical Therapy again. (Roxanne G.)


Whats your why?

  • Are you stuck in your body with pain and tension that doesn’t seem to alleviate?
  • Are you afraid to exercise again for fear of injury or re-injury?
  • Are you unable to get a strong core no matter what exercise program you try?
  • Are you tired of feeling stuck in your posture and cant seem to correct it?
  • Are you afraid your Diastasis Recti will never fully close or heal?
  • Are you worried your persistent neck and back pain won’t ever go away?
  • Are you frustrated with your current form of treatment from the medical field because its not giving you lasting relief?
  • Are you trying to avoid medications that just mask the root cause?


A Remedy

We help women with persistent pain be able to find freedom from pain and gain freedom of movement. 

We offer hope, empower you with education, restore your mobility, and give you strategies to help you meet your goals. Melanie Connell, Physical Therapist and owner, specializes in helping you recover from persistent pain and dysfunction so you can thrive. 

Treat the why, not the what

Your story matters.  Your why may be that you are afraid you won’t be able to run again because your back pain is daily limiting your activities. So you walk and try to exercise but are afraid of further injuring yourself. You desperately want to feel free in your body but feel stuck. The back pain could be from a specific injury however in most of my patients the area of the pain is not necessarily the driver of the pain. Just because you have pain doesn’t mean the issues are always in the tissues. Whether you have back pain, tight hip flexors, pelvic floor dysfunction, weak abdominals muscles etc, the solution lies in getting to the root cause which means you need to address the entire system. (Not just the area of pain or tightness) Your function and movement of your whole body are extremely important for you to return to be able to thrive in your body.
