Amelia is the absolute best. She’s helped me with a multitude of running injuries and actually makes PT fun.

I am a dancer who has had to recover from both multiple injuries and surgeries. Amelia not only helped me recoverquickly and provided much needed support during the rehab process; she also worked with me to develop a rehab protocol specific to my needs. She has been a true partner in my recovery process. I would not be dancing today without her. I cannot sing her praises enough!

Amelia has seen me through two shoulder surgery rehabs. Not only is she knowledgeable and confident in her treatment, she was an incredible source of information and advice at and in between appointments. She got me through to full recovery and not without a few laughs. I can not recommend her highly enough.
