Dr Le is amazing! When I first started going here, I was having horrible pain in my shoulders and sometimes couldn't even drive but that quickly changed going to rockville PT a few times a week for about a month. My muscles were a bit stubborn in the beginning but Dr Le took great care of me and even fit me in when I was having more pain. The dry needling is a little scary but I would do it again in a heartbeat. So glad I was referred to him by my primary care doctor.
Beside being a truly amazing person, Melissa is also the best PT I have ever had (and I have had quite a few). My problems ranged from hip, shoulder and lower back pain to post-partum pelvic floor weakness and pain. Coming from Europe where pelvic floor rehab after pregnancy is very common, I decided to find a pelvic floor specialist to help me heal and regain strength. I started working with Melissa whose intuition, knowledge and experience exceeded my expectations. As I got pregnant again just five months after I had my first baby, Melissa was key in making sure I had a second healthy pregnancy and that my body bounced back quickly after those back-to-back pregnancies. She did an amazing job and got me back to health in no time. I highly recommend her!
Melissa is a life-changer. When I was diagnosed with severe vaginismus at age 17, I thought it was a death sentence. For a year, I tried a home therapy approach with no improvement in my condition. I came to Melissa at age 19 with no hope at all. Melissa changed that. She immediately eased my fears and made it clear to me that I was going to overcome vaginismus, no matter how long it took. Her calmness, determination, warmth and compassion made it easy for me to relax. It was the first time I truly believed that I was going to overcome vaginismus. And she was right - in only two months I was done with vaginismus. I cannot recommend Melissa enough.

About me

Melissa earned her Doctor of Physical Therapy (PT) from Simmons College in Boston, Massachusetts. She will be sitting for her board exams in the Fall of 2014, after which we will be welcoming her as a permanent member of our Body Connect family! Her first 15-week clinical affiliation was at Elements Fitness and Wellness Center in Washington, D.C., where she treated clients using GYROTONIC® exercise.

Melissa has just finished her second full-time acute care clinical at Wentworth Douglass Hospital in Dover, New Hampshire. She is a certified GYROTONIC® instructor and has served as an instructor for the past year. Melissa has a strong interest in holistic health, particularly in Myofascial Release, pelvic floor therapy, and breast cancer rehabilitation. She has already begun taking introductory continuing education seminars in these areas (she took MFR 1 in Summer of 2013, and is scheduled to complete Pelvic Floor 1 course with Herman & Wallace Institute in June 2014).

Melissa enjoys yoga, GYROTONIC® exercise, traveling, cooking, spinning, the ocean, and music. Go Red Sox!

I was referred to Dr. Le through my co-workers who all raved about him and his staff. He is an outstanding physical therapist and the PT treatments, especially the pressure point needling, completely relieved my frozen shoulder pain and significantly improved the mobility of my shoulder. I have referred several other co-workers and my husband as a result of the outstanding treatment I received. Dr. Le is by far one of the best physical therapist in the area!!
Literally redefined what it means to live with pain. Redefining in the sense she was able to literally remove my back pain, where no narcotic medication or epidural shot could! I went to Melissa for a while prior to having back surgery. The surgery was imminent considering I had bone on bone in my L4 and L5 Lumbar Disc. The doctor at GW Medical literally said I should not be able to walk! Literally the day of him telling me this I went to Melissa and left pain free for a number of days! This to me, was a miracle. As was all her treatments. You want to feel better, live without pain, listen to this modern day miracle worker. She is amazing.
