Michael Melander, DC

With a decade of experience in private practice focusing on sports injuries and spine-related complaints, Dr. Melander and his facilities have been honored 4 times as the best in Boston, MA.

Dr. Melander has treated elite, professional, and Olympic athletes, as well as multiple professional performing artists, countless office professionals, pregnant women, elderly, and youth populations.

Dr. Melander is an instructor with Active Release Techniques® in the United States and Canada, and he is an avid advocate and coach of the Functional Range Systems® mobility-training platform.
