Melissa Goldring, RPT

After graduating with a degree in Physical Therapy, I joined Advanced Health Professionals in 1999. What drew me to AHP was our multidisciplinary approach to healthcare. My goal has always been to help people recover from injury and to feel better with whatever tools can maximize healing. For those that could benefit from it, our collaborative efforts, looking at a patient’s injuries from our own disciplines in Physical Therapy and Chiropractic perspectives does just that—it maximizes healing.

I have been fortunate to observe several surgeries, including multiple joint replacements and reconstruction. In 2010, I was invited into the OR to observe a complex spinal surgery with one of my own patients with Dr. Lipow, head of Neurosurgery at Bridgeport Hospital.

In the 20+ years I have been practicing at AHP, I have received numerous certificates in advanced manual therapy & rehabilitative techniques.  Some of these include:

    • Pre/post-surgical patients—Advanced techniques in rehab with THR,TKR & shoulder replacements, Rotator Cuff and Labral Repair, ACL repair, ankle and spinal fusions to name a few
    • Post trauma/chronic pain and how it affects the rehabilitation process
    • Arthritic conditions and how nutrition impacts the body during recovery
    • Research in pharmacology and how medications impact recovery from trauma
    • How to incorporate yoga and pilates techniques specific for rehab programs during Physical Therapy

I believe educating and giving people the tools they need to incorporate wellness into their everyday life gives more value in the long run.

As Director of Physical Therapy at AHP for almost 2 decades, I take great pride in getting to know my patients, helping them achieve their health and fitness goals. I believe that earning my patients trust; educating them in health and wellness and creating a fun rehab environment helps enhance a patient’s experience, and encourages them to move toward their own desires to Feel Well. Live Well. Age Well.
