Melissa Tobis is a NY/NJ state licensed Physical Therapist at Professional Physical Therapy. Melissa attended College of the Holy Cross as a Biology/Pre-Med student, but soon realized she had a greater interest in helping patients return to a fully functional lifestyle after an injury or surgery, rather than performing the surgeries. Upon graduating, she attended the College of Physicians and Surgeons at Columbia University, where she earned her M.S. in Physical Therapy. After working with a pediatric population as a Physical Therapist for the NYC Board of Education, and serving as a Clinical Director in the orthopedic setting, Melissa joined Professional in 2002. In 2005, she became a Clinical Director for our company, and in 2007, Melissa became a Partner. Melissa has extensive experience in outpatient orthopedic rehabilitation, with a focus on manual therapy and sports medicine.

I started lifting weights at age 18 and was interested in how to optimize performance. I have worked for several gyms (Velocity Sports Performance, Blink Fitness), but I've always had a hunger past the point of performance and wanted to learn more about how to rehabilitate injuries.
