First, she listens! "

“After seeing you, I have a lot more confidence that I can do more than I thought I could and that my body is not as fragile as I once thought.”

I highly recommend Melanie! After 4 babies I ended up with Diastasis, which caused me a lot of lower back pain and made me look like I was forever 4 months pregnant! Melanie gave me the confidence to continue working out by providing safe ab exercises to strength my core. But she did more than just that — she helped me with overall body movement. Love her whole body approach.

Melanie is a miracle worker. I’ve been having issues with my hip flexors for quite some time and it got to the point where I couldn’t walk normally. I work out quite often and would ask my athletic trainers for help but received the common response of “You need to strengthen your core.” The hard part was that I was using my hip flexors when trying to strengthen my core (I couldn’t figure out how to leave them out of the movement) and it just got worse and worse. After a single session with Melanie she was able to correct my form for everyday movements where my hip flexors were taking over for weaker muscles. She made easily applicable suggestions that have transformed the way I move every day to take the pressure off and relieve the pain.

I feel confident in my ability to workout to my highest level, strengthen my core, and avoid the everyday pain that used to prevent me from enjoying a simple walk. THANK YOU, Melanie!

Melanie Connell is so knowledgable and looks at the whole body and movement patterns, including proper breathing when treating patients. I had been dealing with low back pain for months and she was able to gibe me practical exercises and stretches along with visits for soft tissue work that got me out of pain in a short amount of time. Furthermore, I have learned how to alter my movements and posture during exercise along with working on breathing more effective. I highly recommend her.

Melanie is the best! I came here for a rib issue that I have been dealing with for over a decade. I always felt like my ribs were poking an organ. Lots of Drs tests said organs were fine, and it was scar tissue. Turns out my ribcage was very tight from how I was breathing and squeezing my abs. We did some therapy for 6 weeks and I am already better, I am amazed! I don’t have that baby foot in my ribs sensation anymore. She also helps you mentally and she is such a great listener. She truly cares for her patients. I’m so thankful and will recommend everyone that needs some PT to go see her!

Melanie is great! She provided comprehensive care for my back pain and sent me home with not only more mobility after my first visit, but additional exercises and stretches to help keep me healthy beyond my appointment.

Melanie is a wonderful PT! She helped treat a nagging running/overuse injury in my back/hip. She really takes a holistic approach to treatment which I hadn’t experienced with past physical therapy. To treat my hip and back she looked at my ankles and running form, as well as my balance and breathing. It was a real game changer! Within 6 weeks I made a ton of progress to get back to running farther and faster. I recommend her for any injury!

Melanie is an exceptionally gifted physical therapist. I had barely any neck mobility but ever since my first session with her I’ve had full mobility.

I find Melanie’s practice to be a rarity in our profession. I’ve required PT services on/off for years due to injuries and aging. Melanie is not only a thoughtful, attentive listener, she is a very skilled therapist! She utilizes an integrative approach to care: manual therapy, therapeutic exercise, breath work, nutrition. Melanie treats the whole person, addressing individual needs and most importantly giving an appropriate amount of time to attend to her patients’ concerns – which unfortunately so few practices do these days.

At my 6 month pregnancy point, I was having my second round of sciatica. I walked into Melanie’s office with 2 canes and walked out without ANY. Not only did she listen intently to my situation, she also helped with my pelvic floor needs for during and post pregnancy. I highly recommend her; I chose her over my ineffective Kaiser PT experience.

She is so knowledgeable about the whole body and how it all works together. Melanie is such a great listener and gives you her one on one attention. I cannot recommend her enough! Her time and commitment to helping me gave me my strength back.

With Melanie, I gained more strength, knowledge, and confidence than I ever did through my 6 month journey post-op with someone else.

Things feel really good. NO stomach issues. The burning in my back is gone. It is actually the first time in years that my rib doesn’t feel as stuck.

I can hardly believe how much it has helped me! I have gotten out and about more and am feeling like I am starting to heal.

In just our first treatment Melanie was able to reduce my neck pain by working on my tail bone, she was able to reduce the fascial tension, and I was able to turn my neck side to side more than I can ever remember.

Melanie is very knowledgeable in her craft. I was in a lot of pain and had tingling all the way down one arm. She educated me about my condition while working on me at each of our sessions. I have specific exercises that help me strengthen and stay in a healthy place. Her philosophy and name say it all: “Remedy”.

What sets Melanie apart from other PTs is that she takes a holistic and personable approach in treating her patients. Melanie solely works one on one with her patients allowing for a more personable and in depth session. Melanie is extremely knowledgeable not only in physical therapy but in full body wellness.

Melanie is simply wonderful. She equipped me with the exercises and knowledge that I will need to help gain my strength back post surgery. She takes her time in listening to how you are feeling and what your issues are, she makes sure you understand how what she does throughout the session will help you, and that you are doing it correctly to ensure positive results.

Melanie seeks to find answers to long and short term physical pain – she works diligently to fix the underlying issues. She is kind, knowledgeable, and has a very serene office setting. I highly recommend her.

I started working with Melanie after suffering for almost 2.5 years. Her knowledge and experience are incredible and the results I’ve had are remarkable.

I was able to hang through a long day of driving to LA and sitting through an evening event. No way I could have done that without Melanie’s help.

Melanie took the time to figure out what was causing my lower back pain and taught me the tools to find relief! I highly recommend her!

If you have ever attended Burn on a calisthenics/ jumping day, I’m sure you’ve heard someone make the comment “I’m going to pee my pants!” It is too often true for women, especially those who have had children, to have a weakened pelvic floor… but it does NOT have to be the situation forever! I have done so many kegels during/after both of my pregnancies and attended a well known therapy center, but neither allowed me to return to running without leakage 🙈. Fast forward to my first few visits with Melanie at Remedy and I am back able to run, jump rope and push myself even harder at Burn without worry!

Before starting to work with Melanie, I had been struggling with nagging lower back pain. I’ve had 4 sessions with her so far and have not had any pain in quite a while now. I’ve really loved working with Melanie and love her holistic approach and desire to find the root of the problem, not just fix/treat a symptom. I’ve been working with her through video calls and it has worked really well! I would highly recommend working with her either in person or via video call.
