Meet Melissa Pearce, PT, OCS, CSCS!
Meet Melissa Pearce, PT, OCS, CSCS! Melissa is a Physical Therapist and Board Certified Orthopedic Specialist at our Murray Clinic. She earned her Masters of Physical Therapy from the University of Utah and has gained additional training in Women’s Health through the Herman and Wallace Pelvic Rehabilitation Institute. She has been with Mountain Land since 2002 and loves the opportunity to help her patients through individualized care.
Specializing in orthopedics, women’s health, and manual therapy, Melissa believes that the physical therapist and patient are a team, working together to discover what is causing the pain, and making a plan on how to treat it. She enjoys utilizing manual therapy to help her patients get back to doing the things they enjoy. Melissa has also studied Pilates, muscle energy techniques, and is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist.
Melissa has traveled to Haiti, Mexico, and South America, to develop physical therapy training programs in areas with limited available medical care. She has dedicated much of her time training locals on how to perform basic physical therapy and how to educate their communities.
When Melissa is not in the clinic, she enjoys river rafting, camping, playing basketball and volleyball, and spending time with her husband and three daughters.
