Melissa Fischer, PT, is a physical therapist at UW Health at the Science Drive Medical Center Sports Medicine Clinic. She works with athletes of all ages and skill levels who have sports-related injuries. Melissa treats a wide array of conditions, including low back pain (spondylolisthesis) and all types of muscle and joint injuries.
Melissa specializes in women’s health across the age spectrum. Her expertise includes women’s athletic injuries, hip conditions and pregnancy recovery for active women. Related areas of expertise include rehabilitation following minimally invasive diagnostic and treatment procedures, such as hip arthroscopy.
Melissa strongly advocates for each patient’s unique health and fitness goals. She strives to be an active listener and fully understand the concerns and needs of her patients.
After hours, Melissa stays active with her own family and fitness goals. Her personal interests include running, yoga and Pilates, and watching all types of youth sports.
I consider it important to offer a fresh perspective and a positive care plan when athletes are sidelined by challenging conditions.
